Eternal Hope, a three-year-old daughter of Teofilo, took the step in class in her stride on Saturday, 13 May when landing the Listed Oaks Trial at Lingfield Park. The lightly raced filly, who has only run on synthetic surfaces, powered clear in the final furlong to win by one-and-three-quarter lengths.
Now the winner of two or her three starts, the Godolphin homebred will need to be supplemented if she heads to Epsom for the Oaks.

The second foal, and first winner bred out of the Dubawi mare Voice Of Truth, Eternal Hope is a relative of the multiple G1 winner Rio de la Plata.
The Teofilo X Dubawi mare cross now has 25% Stakes winners to runners (seven from 28) including last seasons juvenile Stakes winner Naval Power.
