Verdict

The high-class juvenile Maybe made a winning debut in this for Aidan O'Brien in 2011 and he relies on BYE BYE BIRDIE from a host of entries. A 300,000gns daughter of Oasis Dream, she's entered in the Phoenix Stakes and can make a successful start here. Jim Bolger is trying his best to get a race out of Heart Focus, who was outpaced over 5f on her debut and again over this trip at Leopardstown on Sunday. She'll be a big threat while David Wachman won this a year ago and Tap Dancing looks best of his pair this time though she may already need another furlong. Elegant Peace could be another danger as she's a half-sister to seven winners, almost all of them sprinters including Hogmaneigh.
