Henry Cecil, who has already won one fillies' Classic this season with Sleepytime, strengthened his team for the second, the Oaks, when Yashmak ran away with the Vodafone Fillies Trial at Newbury yesterday.

She is now 20-1, from 8-1, with Coral, 5-1 with Ladbrokes and 4-1 with the Tote for the Epsom Classic after beating Tempting Prospect by nine lengths.

Her stablemate Reams Of Verse captured the Musidora Stakes by 11 lengths at York last week to become 5-4 favourite for the big race and their trainer, Henry Cecil, was unable to confirm plans. "Both could run at Epsom, one could go for the French Oaks or one run in the Ribblesdale Stakes. I will advise Prince Khalid Abdullah but it will be his decision," he said.
