Lingfield Oaks Trial

The Lingfield Oaks Trial is a Listed flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to three-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run at Lingfield Park over a distance 1 mile, 3 furlongs and 106 yards (2,310 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in May.

When the present system of race grading was introduced in 1971, the Lingfield Oaks Trial was given Group 3 status. It was relegated to Listed level in 1986. The event serves as a trial for the Epsom Oaks, and several horses have won both races. The most recent Oaks winner to have previously contested the Lingfield Oaks Trial was Look Here, the runner-up in 2008.
