The Independent Online
WHILE Cape Verdi heads the list of 14 acceptors announced yesterday for the Oaks, it is her stable-companion Bahr who continues to be the best backed filly for the 5 June showpiece.

Cape Verdi may be supplemented on 30 May for the Derby and with that in mind punters are concentrating on her Godolphin stablemate. Coral tightened Bahr to 11-4 from 100-30 yesterday and trimmed Aidan O'Brien's Shahtoush to 12-1 from 14-1.

Oaks acceptors: Bahr, Cape Verdi, Cloud Castle, Dabaya, High And Low, Jibe, La Nuit Rose, Loving Claim, Mempari, Midnight Line, Napoleon's Sister, Putuna, Shahtoush, Tarascon.
