Sobetsu among Fillies’ Mile eight

Sobetsu will bid to give trainer Charlie Appleby his second Group One winner inside a week when contesting the Dubai Fillies' Mile at Newmarket on Friday.

Rhododendron and Hydrangea will do battle again

Appleby, who landed the Marcel Boussac on Sunday with Wuheida, has declared the daughter of Dubawi in the final field of eight for the feature contest on the first day of the Future Champions Festival, as she bids to back up her impressive maiden success over course and distance last month.

Aidan O'Brien, trainer of last year's winner Minding, will rely on Rhododendron and Hydrangea to give him a fifth victory in the race and third in succession having also sent out 2014 winner Together Forever.

Spatial will attempt to give Sir Michael Stoute his first Fillies' Mile since that of Red Bloom in 2003, who was owned, like his representative in this year's renewal, by Cheveley Park Stud.

The Ralph Beckett-trained Rich Legacy steps up to the top table for the first time having captured the May Hill at Doncaster last time out, while Easy Victory, from the yard of Saeed bin Suroor, bids to bounce back from a lacklustre effort in a Group Three at the July Course in August.

The field is completed by the Hugo Palmer-trained Haydock maiden scorer Fleabiscuit and Urban Fox for James Tate.
