This is the rematch Ireland has been waiting for since Maybe beat LA COLLINA a neck in the Group 3 Silver Flash Stakes at Leopardstown. The winner enhanced her status by taking the Group 2 Debutante Stakes over the C&D three weeks ago but the runner-up did even better on the same card when beating the colts in the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes. It's a race to savour and supporters of Aidan O'Brien's filly will point to the fact she was conceding 3lb in the Debutante but the slow pace was probably against La Collina and she can have her revenge. The remainder look as though they are playing for places and Fire Lily, runner-up in York's Lowther Stakes to Best Terms with the rest well beaten, can take the minor prize.
