Approach in frame for Phoenix
Tuesday 7 August 2012
Dawn Approach is the star name among 15 entries for the Keeneland Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday.
Jim Bolger's unbeaten juvenile has won each of his four starts to date, most recently impressing in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot.
The form could hardly have worked out better, with runner-up Olympic Glory having since scored twice in Group Two company.
Bolger also has Wexford Opera and Leitir Mor engaged, while his former pupil Aidan O'Brien has six possible runners.
The master of Ballydoyle could saddle Afonso De Sousa, Cristoforo Colombo, Gale Force Ten, George Vancouver, Parliament Square and Pedro The Great as he aims to win one of Ireland's most prestigious juvenile prizes for a 12th time.
David Wachman's Railway Stakes winner Probably has been supplemented, while Glorious Goodwood scorers Bungle Inthejungle and Heavy Metal are the two potential British challengers.
