The Epsom Oaks, also known as just The Oaks, is a British Classic open to three-year-old fillies. It is the second leg of the fillies' Triple Crown, and it takes place over one-mile-and-four-furlongs.
Punters can catch the action from Epsom via our Sports Live Streaming service, while the Epsom Oaks will also be shown live on ITV for terrestrial viewers.
Robert Robson has been successful 13 times in the Oaks. Scotia (1802), Pelisse (1804), Meteora (1805), Briseis (1807), Morel (1808), Maid of Orleans (1809), Music (1813), Minuet (1815), Landscape (1816), Corinne (1818), Pastille (1822), Zinc (1823) and Wings (1825) have all come out on top for the trainer.

There is still plenty of time for runners to prove their worth before the 2024 race. The full picture for the next Epsom Oaks will not be clear until the trial races take place, with those running in the Cheshire Oaks, Musidora Stakes, and 1000 Guineas often sent to Epsom Downs to run in the Oaks.
Aidan O'Brien will once again be plotting with his staff to have several runners, including Content, who was last seen finishing third at Leopardstown in June.
The Irish trainer could also enter Ylang Ylang and Port Fairy, while Joseph O'Brien's Grand Job could also be supplemented for the contest after making an impressive debut at the Curragh.
