Love Divine, winner of the Oaks at Epsom in June, is set for another clash with runaway Irish Oaks heroine Petrushka at York next week.

The pair are due to meet in the Yorkshire Oaks, when Ramruma, winner in 1999 of both the Epsom fillies' classic and the York Group One, is also likely to line up in what should be one of the races of the season.

Petrushka was only fourth behind Love Divine at Epsom, but Harry Herbert, manager for owners Highclere Throughbred Racing, said: "On paper we do have something to find with Love Divine but I am sure that we saw the real Petrushka in Ireland and we're really hopeful."
