The field is set for the 144th running of the Kentucky Oaks (G1) at Churchill Downs on May 4, Monomoy Girl has been installed as the 2-1 favorite under jockey Florent Geroux. The Brad Cox-trained daughter of Tapizar drew the far outside post 14 in the field and will vie with Midnight Bisou for favoritism the day of the race off her 5 1/2-length victory in the Ashland Stakes (G1) on Apirl 7 at Keeneland.

Midnight Bisou also exits a Grade 1 win, this one coming in the Santa Anita Oaks on April 7 to cap off a three-race win streak with jockey Mike Smith in the irons. Trainer Bill Spawr has retained that rider for Friday's Kentucky Oaks, and the duo will break from post 5 as the 5-2 second choice on the morning line.
