One-time Vodafone Oaks favourite Playful Act will make her seasonal reappearance in the Lancashire version at Haydock on Saturday week.

John Gosden's filly was one of last term's leading juveniles and was set to return at Epsom earlier this month. She also held engagements in both the Pretty Polly Stakes and the Prix de Malleret at Saint-Cloud this weekend, but will wait for the 12-furlong Group Two. Ben Sangster, a member of the Sangster family who own Playful Act, said: "She was a bit slow to come to hand and York came a bit soon for her, but we will have a week more to get her ready.

"She is in the Irish and Yorkshire Oaks and although she is by Sadler's Wells, she has plenty of form on fast ground."
