Default Wild Yeasts

I pressed some apples into cider, I am pretty sure that the wild yeasts on the apples started fermentation along with the White Labs Dry English Cider yeast in two of the carboys and the fruit wine yeast I added in the 3rd carboy. Which yeasts are going to end up dominating the flavor of the ciders?

Your cider yeast will most likely prevail.

It was also about 24 hours before I was able to add the domestic yeast so there was already some bubbling going before I could get the domestic yeast on. Plus, for one of the carboys. The joy of craft brewing, these are truly going to be one of a kind brews. Regrettably no pictures.
