Aidan O'Brien's Peeping Fawn, who won four consecutive Group Ones last season, has been retired.

A daughter of the great sire Danehill, she has not run since winning the Yorkshire Oaks nearly 12 months ago and has failed to fire on the gallops this year.

"We took her away from home to work before she was due to run in the Pretty Polly Stakes in June and thing's weren't quite 100% with her afterwards," said O'Brien (pictured).

"While the problem wasn't a major one, she didn't come back the way we had thought she would.

"As she has been such a great filly, we took the decision on Friday morning to retire her. She will be covered next year," he told the Racing Post.

After being unraced at two, Peeping Fawn did not lose her maiden tag until her fourth race before she finished third in the Irish 1000 Guineas at the Curragh.

She then belied her 20-1 starting price in the Oaks at Epsom to finish second to Light Shift before beginning her four-race winning streak.
