Oaks heroine Was and top juvenile Maybe have both been ruled out of this afternoon's Barclays Bank Ireland Pretty Polly Stakes at the Curragh.

Was: Misses the Pretty Polly

The Aidan O'Brien-trained pair were among the leading hopes for the Group One contest after Was claimed the Oaks at Epsom earlier in the month, with Maybe a close-up fifth.

However, despite Camelot's win on unsuitably heavy ground in the Irish Derby on Saturday, O'Brien has opted not to risk his fillies.

His wife Annemarie tweeted: "Maybe and Was are both non runners at the Curragh today due to ground conditions."

O'Brien still has one runner in the shape of Up, who was last seen finishing seventh in the French Oaks.
