Verdict

BYE BYE BIRDIE made a very promising debut behind Heart Focus at Naas and the 300,000gns daughter of Oasis Dancer is likely to be a short price to go one better and can't be opposed. Aidan O'Brien also runs Perhaps, a full sister to the useful Battle Of Marengo while Jim Bolger is represented by Bru Mor, who hasn't done enough in her two runs to suggest she can become the fourth from her yard to win this in recent years. Tap Dancing and Fly To The Moon, the two David Wachman entries, can be expected to improve from their debuts while Flying Jib, another daughter of Oasis Dancer out of a Grade 2 winner in the USA, could prove best of the newcomers.
