Simple Verse is heading for a showdown with Postponed in the Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Cup at Epsom on 3 June.

Trainer Ralph Beckett is happy to take on the Roger Varian-trained colt for her second run on the season in the Investec-sponsored showpiece.

Last year's St Leger and Qipco British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes winner made a pleasing reappearance when runner-up in the Jockey Club Stakes at Newmarket last month.

"We look like we're going to go there and take on Postponed. That's fine. We're happy to do that and she's in good shape," Beckett said.

Postponed is the star name among 15 horses left in the Epsom showpiece and he has already been in action this year, running twice in Dubai and winning the Sheema Classic at Meydan in March.

Simple Verse is not the only talented filly in the line-up as Aidan O'Brien's Found is also in the mix.

She got the better of Golden Horn in the 2015 Breeders' Cup Turf in America and confirmed her well-being with a Group Three success at the Curragh earlier this month.

O'Brien could be represented by Highland Reel, winner of the Hong Kong Vase and Secretariat Stakes last season and recent Group Three scorer Bondi Beach, who was just touched off by Simple Verse in a controversial race for the St Leger at Doncaster.

There are two French entries in Vazirabad, trained by Alain de Royer-Dupre, and Siljan's Saga from Jean-Pierre Gauvin's stable.

Other entries include David Elsworth's Arabian Queen and the Luca Cumani-trained Second Step.
