John Dunlop has been given the approval of owner Benny Andersson to run Beatrice Aurore in the Investec Oaks.

Andersson, who was a member of Abba, has a most progressive filly on his hands.

She built on a Goodwood handicap victory at the beginning of the month by landing the Height of Fashion Stakes at the same course last Wednesday.

And now she will bid to follow in the footsteps of Snow Fairy, who landed the Listed race before taking the Oaks last season for Dunlop’s son Ed.

‘She’s definitely going to run,’ said Dunlop snr.

‘I’ve spoken to the owner and he was very keen to have a runner, so we’re looking forward to it.’

Beatrice Aurore can still be backed at 20/1 with many major bookmakers for the Epsom Classic on June 3.
