No decision will be made over Tarfasha's participation in the Investec Oaks at Epsom next month until as "late as possible".

Trained by Dermot Weld, the Teofilo filly landed the Group Three Blue Wind Stakes at Naas on her return to action, looking a three-year-old destined for a big future.

However, she is owned by Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum who is also lucky enough to have the current ante-post favourite for the Oaks in John Gosden's Taghrooda.

Weld was keen to go for the Oaks after her Naas win, but Sheikh Hamdan's racing manager Angus Gold said: "There will be no decision until as late as possible.

"It's one where there is nothing to be gained by making an early call and it will be left entirely up to Sheikh Hamdan whether he wants two runners in the race.

"I don't think the ground is a particular issue for either filly so that is unlikely to have a say.

"We'll just see how they both are nearer the time and then Sheikh Hamdan will decide.

"It's a nice problem to have."
