Aidan O’Brien has saddled nine Oaks winners, including the latest two runnings with Love (2020) and Snowfall (2021). The master of Ballydoyle has six entries remaining, headed by QIPCO 1000 Guineas third Tuesday.
 
Godolphin trainer Charlie Appleby is still chasing his first Oaks winners but has two fillies going forward headed by With The Moonlight, an eye-catching winner of the Listed Betfair Pretty Polly Stakes at Newmarket on 1st May.
