Venus De Milo chases The Fugue home
Irish Oaks runner-up Venus De Milo is among 16 left in next Thursday's Park Hill Stakes at the confirmation stage.
The Aidan O'Brien-trained three-year-old was also second behind The Fugue in the Yorkshire Oaks and now could be asked to step up to an extended mile and three-quarters.
O'Brien has a second potential string to his bow in Exotic, who made a winning debut in a mile and a half maiden at Galway only last month.
Dermot Weld's versatile six-year-old Unaccompanied could call at Doncaster after also being successful at Galway. John Murphy's Kiss Goodnight is a fourth Irish possible.
Newmarket trainer Michael Bell has left in Oaks third The Lark and Bite Of The Cherry, while Clive Brittain is double-handed with Cape Alex and Jathabah.
Among others in the list are Mark Johnston's Alta Lilea, Seal Of Approval from James Fanshawe's yard and John Gosden's unexposed three-year-old Phiz.
