Rhododendron in Diane frame

Rhododendron: Left in Sunday's French Oaks at Chantilly

Rhododendron remains in contention to gain a first Classic success after she was left in the Prix de Diane at Chantilly on Sunday.

Having finished second in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket and the Epsom Oaks, the Aidan O'Brien-trained three-year-old is one of 17 possible runners still in the hat for the French Oaks.

O'Brien's daughter of Galileo is one of two remaining entries for the Ballydoyle master, who could also saddle Pocketfullofdreams.

The John Gosden-trained Musidora winner Shutter Speed will be looking to stretch her unbeaten record to four and is the sole British-trained runner left in the mile-and-a-quarter contest.

The most notable absentee is the Charlie Appleby-trained Sobetsu, who finished down the field in the Oaks on her last start, having previously won the Prix Saint-Alary.
