Hughie Morrison's Banoffee has been formally supplemented for next Friday's Investec Oaks at Epsom.

Her owners had been widely expected to come up with the £30,000 required to add the daughter of Hurricane Run to the field.

Banoffee, who Morrison said was likely to be ridden by Kieren Fallon at a press event this week, has won both her starts so far.

She started off in a maiden at Newbury in mid-April and successfully stepped up in class when coming with a late finish in the Cheshire Oaks.

A general 8-1 chance, she is one of 12 confirmed runners, which include impressive Lingfield winner Secret Gesture, Michael Stoute's winter favourite Liber Nauticus, plus Moth, Say and Snow Queen for Aidan O'Brien.

Michael Bell has kept in his pair The Lark and Madame Defarge, while Talent - a stablemate of Secret Gesture - Miss You Too, Gertrude Versed and Roz complete the line-up at this stage.
