Fillies' Trial Stakes

The Fillies' Trial Stakes is a Listed flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to three-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run at Newbury over a distance of 1 mile, 2 furlongs and 6 yards (2,017 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in May.

Prior to 1989 the event was known as the Sir Charles Clore Memorial Stakes. This was in memory of Sir Charles Clore (1904–1979), a British businessman who was a successful racehorse owner. The Fillies' Trial Stakes has been sponsored by Swettenham Stud since 2002. It serves as a trial for the Epsom Oaks, and horses to have won both races include Circus Plume (1984) and Eswarah (2005).
