Sariska looks stronger in duel of Oaks winners with Snow Fairy

Snow Fairy has matched Sariska in both the substance and style of her achievements last year, winning all out in the Oaks at Epsom before cruising home in softer conditions at the Curragh. But now they square up in the Darley Yorkshire Oaks today and the younger filly may be punished for her insolence. Being a far more imposing physical specimen, Sariska was always going to flourish in her third season and saw off her old rival, Midday, here at York in May before giving the top-class colt Fame And Glory a good race when returning to Epsom in June.

Jaguar XKR and XKR Speed Pack

Jaguar's current line-up is probably stronger than any the company has fielded in decades. Most attention has focused in the last year or two on the company's big saloons, the XF, which replaced the S-Type, and the new XJ introduced this year, both of which are providing much stiffer competition for the German prestige brands than their conservatively styled predecessors.

The renewal – and revival - of the Jaguar line-up, though, began in 2006 with the current XK coupé and convertible, and these cars are still selling strongly (deliveries in the UK market were up 22.5 per cent in the first half of this year) thanks to a series of tweaks and updates aimed at keeping them fresh.
