We take a look through the Fillies' Mile odds, where Indigo Girl heads a trio of Irish challengers.
Friday's card at Newmarket's Future Champions meeting is headlined by the Fillies' Mile. This Group One has proven to be one of the most important juvenile races on the calendar, and horses who perform well in the Fillies' Mile could be aimed at either the 1000 Guineas or the Epsom Oaks the following season.
16 talented fillies stood their ground at the seven-day entry stage for the 2020 Fillies' Mile. Let's take a look through the betting and possible runners.

Indigo Girl tops the market for John Gosden, who won the last of his four Fillies' Miles with Rainbow View in 2008. Rab Havlin's mount is unbeaten in two starts, and looked a class above her rivals when pulling clear in the May Hill Stakes at Doncaster.
All three members of the O'Brien family have pitched talented fillies into the mix. Second in the betting we find Donnacha O'Brien's Shale, who'll be searching for her second Group One of the season, having won the Moyglare Stud Stakes during Irish Champions Weekend.
Joseph O'Brien's Pretty Gorgeous came out second best that day, having beaten Shale in the Debutante Stakes on her previous start. Pretty Gorgeous had been due to run in the Prix Marcel Boussac, but a batch of contaminated feed meant all of O'Brien's runners at Longchamp had to be withdrawn.
Not wanting to be upstaged by his sons, Aidan O'Brien had handed Santa Barbara an entry into Friday's Fillies' Mile. This daughter of Camelot has only been seen once thus far, but Santa Barbara made a good impression when winning on debut at the Curragh two weeks ago.
The master of Ballydoyle has also handed entries to five of his other most promising fillies, including Monday, Mother Earth and Divinely.
Isabella Giles could step up to Group One company, having secured an impressive two-length triumph in the Shadwell Rockfel Stakes here on the Rowley Mile.
Zabeel Queen went to post as the favourite for the May Hill Stakes, but could only finish third as Indigo Girl cruised to victory. That hasn't put Roger Varian off from throwing his filly into this Group One, and Zabeel Queen has to be respected.
Dubai Fountain has been beaten on her last four outings, but ran well to place second behind the favourite at Doncaster. Mark Johnston's filly was also beaten into second by Star Of Emaraaty in the Sweet Solera Stakes, and Kevin Ryan's filly could also make her Group One debut on Friday.
