Minding tops Oaks field


Qipco 1000 Guineas heroine Minding heads the nine fillies set to run in Friday's Investec Oaks at Epsom.

Aidan O'Brien's filly failed in her quest to complete the Guineas double when he was beaten by Jet Setting in the Curragh Classic last time out, but she bumped her head leaving the stalls.

Should she win at Epsom on Friday, she will become the first horse since Kazzia in 2002 to complete the Classic double.

As well as Minding, O'Brien will saddle Seventh Heaven and Somehow, while Jim Bolger will send over Turret Rocks, who was sixth behind Minding at Newmarket.

Godolphin have supplemented the Charlie Appleby-trained Skiffle, while Hugo Palmer's Architecture has stood her ground alongside Australian Queen from David Elsworth's yard.

Diamonds Pour Moi will take her chance for Ralph Beckett with the Mick Channon-trained Harlequeen completes the nine-runner field.
