Runners and riders for the 2020 Investec Oaks with Love among eight declared

Love: looking to follow up Classic success at Newmarket
1 of 1

Love, the general even-money favourite, is among eight contenders declared for the Investec Oaks at Epsom on Saturday.

The daughter of Galileo won the Qipco 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket last month and spearheads a three-pronged Aidan O'Brien assault on the fillies' Classic along with stablemates Ennistymon and Passion. 

The British challenge will be led by the John Gosden-trained Frankly Darling, the general 15-8 second favourite, who is unbeaten in two starts this season for owner Anthony Oppenheimer, including an impressive performance to land the Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Tiempo Vuela represents the same connections and will also take her chance at Epsom. 

Trainer Roger Varian saddles both Gold Wand and Queen Daenerys as he goes in search of a second Classic success after Kingston Hill won the St Leger in 2014.

The field is completed by Bharani Star running in the colours of Phoenix Thoroughbreds and partnered by current champion jockey Oisin Murphy.
