Lancashire Oaks Guide

1. Dramatic Queen

T - William Haggas

J - Richard Kingscote

Recovered from French disappointment in style when getting the better of today's rival Enbihaar at York in a Group Three.

Last but two when fancied as an alternative to a short-price favourite of Andre Fabre's in the Prix Allez France Longines back in April.

Lowers in trip after climbing up six furlongs in between the last two runs, and may be at her optimum trip now.

2. Enbihaar

T - John Gosden

J - Dane O'Neill

Beaten favourite when dispatched by Dramatic Queen at York last time out, but returns to her last winning trip of twelve furlongs.

Looked promising on reappearance when beating Klassique in Listed company back in April, with the latter following up at this track since.

Best chance to reverse form with the top one with more emphasis on speed not just stamina, and remains nicely lightly raced in the colours of Hamdan Al Maktoum.

3. Highgarden

T - John Gosden

J - Robert Havlin

One start this season, finishing third of six at Chelmsford on return and not all that far away.

Progressed well last term to finish the season with a win in the Group Three Princess Royal Nayef Stakes at Newmarket over this trip.

Finally got things right as a three-year-old after a sequence of near misses, waiting to score since his debut at Newbury in October 2017.

Career best needed here.

4. Klassique

T - William Haggas

J - Daniel Tudhope

Has been ultra-consistent of late, and aside from her debut fifth at Newbury last June, she is yet to finish outside the top two in seven other starts.

She returned to the fold this season at Goodwood, where she was just denied by John Gosden's Enhibaar in Listed company.

The four-year-old daughter of Galileo then bounced back to take the Group Three Pinnacle Stakes here a month ago over a very well fancied Willie Mullins mare in True Self.

Fascinating clash reopposing her Goodwood successor, and she should go close.

5. Nyaleti

T - Mark Johnston

J - Franny Norton

Five starts this season, and continues to mess about for trainer Mark Johnston.

Second in the Chesham as a juvenile before winning the German 1,000 Guineas in Dusseldorf as a three-year-old, he has failed to prevail since and does not go about her work in the simplest way.

Good second on the all-weather to Sun Maiden at Newcastle last week, but could be outclassed here by better rivals now back on the quicker turf.

6. Shailene

T - Andrew Balding

J - David Probert

Decent 2019, winning in Italy in a Listed race last time out under champion jockey Silvestre De Sousa.

David Probert jumps aboard this time, and gets back aboard the four-year-old filly who has also finished second to Sun Maiden this season - at Nottingham a month ago.

Big jump up in class, and would be the least likely winner in this field.

Progressive so not to completely forget.
