Amazing Maria ridden by Frankie Dettori is exercised during Breakfast with the Stars at Epsom Downs
Frankie Dettori was encouraged by Amazing Maria when the partnership cantered at the 'Breakfast with the Stars' morning at Epsom.
Ed Dunlop's filly looked impressive in the Group Three Prestige Stakes at Goodwood last season but will run in the Oaks without a prep run.
Dettori said: "When you miss a trial it's important to get her here (to Epsom) and stretch her legs.
"The rain's quite good, she raced on it before and she likes it. I was very pleased.
"We know she's definitely got natural ability.
"Its different going from a mile to a mile and a half but Ed has been here and done it before."
Stablemate Island Remede also worked at Epsom on Thursday morning to confirm her place in the line-up.
Dunlop said: "She will like the ground and the owner is keen to give her a run."
