Manuela de Vega puts her Classic prospects on the line in a 12-runner field declared for the Arkle Finance Cheshire Oaks at Chester on Wednesday.
The Ralph Beckett-trained filly won both her starts last term and is a top-priced 25-1 for the Epsom showpiece on May 31.
Enable won this race in 2017 on her way to super stardom and her trainer John Gosden is double-handed this time with Fanny Logan and Mehdaayih. Neither are currently engaged in the Classic itself.
Aidan O’Brien has won this race six times and relies on Secret Thoughts, who was sixth to Lady Kaya at Leopardstown on her reappearance, to give him a seventh.
Andrew Balding’s Grace And Danger won her only start at Nottingham and holds an Oaks entry as does the Mark Johnston-trained Vivid Diamond, second in a Listed race at Newmarket in November.
