1
Jocket Silks 1. ANASTARSIA (IRE)
J: P. J. McDonald
T: John Gosden
3
9-0
Made all in 1m novice at Newcastle as 2-y-o and better form on her reappearance when sixth to stable companion Miss Yoda in Lingfield Oaks Trial. May do better still but this is a very big ask.

2
Jocket Silks 2. BHARANI STAR (GER)
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Peter Chapple-Hyam
3
9-0
Sea The Stars filly who was much improved on her return when dead heating in 11.6f Haydock handicap. Capable of better still but faces a very stiff task here.

3
Jocket Silks 3. BORN WITH PRIDE (IRE)
J: Non Runner
T: William Haggas
3
9-0
Impressively won 1m listed event at Newmarket on debut in November but she was easy to back and well below par on her return at Kempton (1¼m). Worth another chance. NON RUNNER.

4
Jocket Silks 4. ENNISTYMON (IRE)
J: James Doyle
T: Aidan O'Brien, Ireland
3
9-0
Much improved form stepped up to 1¼m on her return in Leopardstown maiden week ago. Lot more required but this well-related daughter of Galileo is open to plenty more improvement.

5
Jocket Silks 5. FRANKLY DARLING
J: Frankie Dettori
T: John Gosden
3
9-0
Improved and looked a fine prospect when impressively landing 1¼m Newcastle maiden on return, very strong at the finish. Lots more to come now up in trip for connections who won this 12 months ago.

6
Jocket Silks 6. GOLDEN LIPS (IRE)
J: Josephine Gordon
T: Harry Dunlop
3
9-0
Fairly useful filly who excelled herself when 1¼l second of 8 to Miss Yoda in Oaks Trial at Lingfield (66/1). Cheekpieces worn there are retained but she faces an uphill task.

7
Jocket Silks 7. HOLD FAST (IRE)
J: David Probert
T: Andrew Balding
3
9-0
Still rough around the edges but improved plenty when making a successful return at Kempton (1¼m). Further step up in trip will suit and she can progress again. Lively outsider for in-form yard.

8
Jocket Silks 8. MISS YODA (GER)
J: Robert Havlin
T: John Gosden
3
9-0
Made it 3-4 with victory in Lingfield Oaks Trial on her return, responding well to come out on top after plenty had gone against her. More to come and has good attitude/record so is highly respected.

9
Jocket Silks 9. PASSION (IRE)
J: Ryan Moore
T: Aidan O'Brien, Ireland
3
9-0
Returned with fairly useful effort in first-time cheekpieces when fourth in 10f listed race at Navan. Sister to St Leger winner Capri will relish this step up in trip so not discounted for top yard.

10
Jocket Silks 10. SO I TOLD YOU (IRE)
J: Shane Kelly
T: Richard Hughes
3
9-0
Readily landed odds in 1m Nottingham maiden before (12/1) good fifth on her return behind Miss Yoda in Lingfield Oaks Trial. Lots more needed if she's to figure here though.

11
Jocket Silks 11. TREFOIL
J: Harry Bentley
T: Ralph Beckett
3
9-0
Successful at Newmarket (1m) on debut last season and enhanced her reputation when third to Run Wild in the Pretty Polly (1¼m), sticking to her task well. More to come stepped up further in trip now.

12
Jocket Silks 12. WEST END GIRL
J: Oisin Murphy
T: Mark Johnston
3
9-0
Group 3 Sweet Solera winner last August but folded tamely in stronger pattern events final 2 juvenile starts before returning with creditable third to Miss Yoda in Lingfield Oaks Trial. Lots to find.

Analyst's Verdict

John Gosden has an excellent recent record in this Group 2 event and he appears to hold a very strong hand again. His FRANKLY DARLING looked every inch a high-class 12f filly in the making when forging clear on her return over 10f at Newcastle. Lingfield Oaks Trial winner Miss Yoda rates next best and can chase her stable companion home ahead of Trefoil.

It is open exclusively to three-year-old fillies, and being the same trip as the Epsom Oaks, often features runners from that race, and can act as a mid-way point between that race and the Irish Oaks in mid-to-late July.

The Ribblesdale has been run annually since 1919, but was abandoned for the duration of World War II. Upon its return, the race was extended to its current distance, having previously been run over one mile. It was also open to three- and four-year-old horses of either sex, until being restricted to three-year-old fillies in 1950.

There is one jockey who stands – and occasionally leaps – head and shoulders above the rest, having won the race six times (1995, 1998, 1999, 2004, 2009, 2010): Frankie Dettori. Having said that, Ryan Moore is hot on his heels, having won three of the four renewals of this race between 2015 and 2018.

As far as trainers are concerned, there are three men with five victories under their belts. The late Sir Henry Cecil (1976, 1981, 1987, 1989 and 1997) and John Dunlop (1983, 1986, 1991, 1993 and 2005), as well as Godolphin trainer Saeed bin Suroor (1998, 1999, 2004, 2009 and 2010).
