John Gosden saddles two impeccably-bred fillies, Entitle and Sparkle Roll, as he bids to improve on his excellent record in the Tattersalls Musidora Stakes at York on Wednesday.
The Newmarket trainer has taken this Group Three contest five times in the last eight years with such stars as The Fugue and So Mi Dar.
This time he looks to Entitle, a half-sister to the brilliant Enable, and Sparkle Roll, a half-sister to the 2017 Derby hero Wings Of Eagles. Both hold entries in the Investec Oaks.
William Haggas was victorious last year with Give And Take and relies on Frankellina, winner of her only start at Yarmouth in October. The Frankel filly is in the Oaks.
Saeed bin Suroor is two-handed with Lingfield novice scorer Dubai Blue and Swift Rose, who ran four times in Dubai over the winter.
The sole Irish-trained entry is Fresnel from Jack Davison’s stable in County Meath. She was only beaten two lengths when fourth to Oaks favourite Pink Dogwood in the Listed Salsabil Stakes at Navan last month.
Pink Dogwood’s trainer Aidan O’Brien withdrew his two entries, Peach Tree and Fire Fly, at the final declaration stage.
Ralph Beckett saddles Sand Share, who was third in the Group Two May Hill Stakes while the 10-strong field is completed by Blue Gardenia, I’ll Have Another and Nausha.
