Star Fillies Head 93 for Investec Oaks
A total of Ninety-three fillies have been entered for the 2011 renewal of the Investec Oaks at Epsom on June 3.
All the ante-post fancies such as Sir Michael Stoute's Havant, Godolphin's White Moonstone and Aidan O'Brien's Group One winner Misty For Me have stood their ground.
Stoute has also entered Cape Dollar, winner of the Rockfel Stakes, who will be reopposed by half-length runner-up Cochabamba, who was also placed in the Prestige Stakes at Goodwood.
Epsom-based trainer Roger Teal believes Cochabamba has filled out in the winter and fully warrants her entry alongside stablemate Barathea Dancer.
He said: "Cochabamba did us proud last year and has some good form in Group races. We had to make an entry and she deserves to be in there. She was never very big so I have trained her with a view to hoping she will train on into a three-year-old.
"We've just started stepping her back up in to her work and I left her as long as possible to give her every chance of training on. She has grown a little bit, but she is never going to be a tall filly and she has strengthened up and filled out in the right places.
"Her sire, Hurricane Run, brings the stamina and there's a bit more speed on the dam's side. She has Guineas entries too but, the thing is, she switches off nicely and is an easy ride.
"We'll find out more about whether she will stay a mile and a half as the year goes on. It would be lovely to have a runner in a Classic in my home town, so that's something we are hopefully looking forward to."
Teo's Sister, an unraced sister to champion two-year-old Teofilo, has been entered by Jim Bolger, while an interesting candidate from the Henry Cecil stable is the unraced All Time.
