George Boughey has supplemented Mystery Angel for the Cazoo Oaks | Emma Berry

George Boughey, one of the rising stars of the Newmarket training ranks, is set to be represented by a first Classic runner after listed Pretty Polly S. winner Mystery Angel (Ire) (Kodi Bear {Ire}) was supplemented for Friday's G1 Cazoo Oaks at a cost of £22,500.

Owned by the Nick Bradley Racing syndicate, which has already had a Classic place-getter this season in Fev Rover (Ire) (Gutaifan {Ire}), Mystery Angel was last seen running fourth to Snowfall (Jpn) (Deep Impact {Jpn}) in the G3 Tattersalls Musidora S. at York. The first four home in that contest all stand their ground at Epsom. 

Snowfall is currently second favourite for the Oaks behind her stable-mate Santa Barbara (Ire) (Camelot {GB}), who has raced just twice in her life and was beaten just over a length when fourth in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket. The duo could be joined by up to three stable-mates from Ballydoyle, with the list of potential runners for the fillies' Classic now stretching to 15 following the latest confirmation stage.

The Sir Michael Stoute-trained Musidora runner-up Noon Star (GB) (Galileo {Ire}) could renew her rivalry with Snowfall, along with third-placed Teona (GB) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) from the Roger Varian stable. Her fellow Newmarket resident, the 1000 Guineas runner-up Saffron Beach (Ire) (New Bay {GB}), had a spin round Epsom on Monday and is now an intended runner for Jane Chapple-Hyam.

Archie Watson and Hollie Doyle team up for their first Oaks contender with the Lingfield Oaks Trial winner Sherbet Lemon (Lemon Drop Kid), who could again face the second and third home, Save A Forest (GB) (Kingman {GB}) and Ocean Road (Ire) (Australia {GB}), for Varian and Hugo Palmer respectively. 

Varian could have as many as three runners as Cheshire Oaks runner-up Zeyaadah (GB) (Tamayuz {GB}) remains in contention, as does the filly who beat her, the Mark Johnston-trained Dubai Fountain (Ire) (Teofilo {Ire}).

Eleven horses remain in the potential line-up for the second Group 1 contest on Friday's Epsom card, the Coral Coronation Cup. The list is headed by the progressive Al Aasy (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}), the impressive winner of two Group 3 contests this season for William Haggas and Shadwell.

He could take on last year's Derby and Oaks winners Serpentine (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) and Love (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), while Arc runner-up In Swoop (Ire) (Adlerflug {Ger}) is a potential runner from France for Francis Graffard.
