Aidan O'Brien says Together Forever is more than likely to take her chance in the Investec Oaks at Epsom next month.

Having won the Fillies' Mile on her final appearance last season, the three-year old put in an encouraging performance when giving weight away to all of her rivals to finish a close-up second over her first try at a mile and a quarter in the Musidora Stakes at York on Wednesday.

O'Brien said: She ran well and we're happy with her.

"It was a nice start and it looks like she will get further, she was coming home well.

"Hopefully if everything goes well I'd imagine she'll go to Epsom."

While a trip back across the Irish Sea is on the cards for Together Forever, O'Brien has stressed Found will look to get her career back on track in the Irish 1,000 Guineas at the end of the month.

Found could be one of several entries in the mile event for the Ballydoyle master.

O'Brien said: "We're looking at the Irish Guineas for Found and, so far, everything seems perfect.

"It looks like Kissed By Angels and Qualify could go there.

"Fluff had a slight setback and will probably not be back until the autumn.

"Words won't make it (to the Curragh) and might make Ascot."
