Bookmakers believe there is every chance Oaks heroine Taghrooda could go off favourite for Saturday's King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot.

John Gosden's unbeaten filly was expected to bid for an Oaks double at the Curragh last weekend, but was taken out of that race after connections made the bold decision to let her take on the boys in the Group One showpiece.

She was cut by Coral to 9/4 from 5/2, prompting them to ease Michael Stoute's Telescope to 2/1 favourite from 7/4.

With Taghrooda set to be partnered by Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum's retained rider Paul Hanagan, the owner's second jockey Dane O'Neill will come in for the plum mount aboard the William Haggas-trained Mukhadram.
