Sariska heads Epsom Oaks line-up

Ante-post favourite Sariska heads 12 confirmations for Friday's Oaks at Epsom racecourse.

Michael Bell's filly heads the betting for the Classic following a superb display in the Musidora at York.

Last year's champion juvenile filly, Rainbow View, will be looking for a big improvement after finishing only fifth in the 1000 Guineas.

Henry Cecil is in search of a ninth win in the race with Midday, who won the Lingfield Oaks Trial on her last start.

She is likely to closely contest the Group One mile-and-a-half race having come second in the Blue Riband Trial against the colts at Epsom earlier in the season.


Ireland's representatives come in the form of Aidan O'Brien's Cheshire Oaks winner Perfect Truth and Jim Bolger's Oh Goodness Me.

Barry Hills' High Heeled, Clive Brittain's Nashmiah and Wadaat and Sir Michael Stoute's Phillipina are other contenders in with an outside chance.

Amanda Perrett's Tottie represents last year's winning owner, Julian Richmond-Watson, while The Miniver Rose and Three Moons complete the list.
