The last three of these have gone to Ballydoyle and Parliament Square is sure to attract strong support on his debut. An 80,000 euros foal, he made an astonishing 370,000 guineas as a yearling and an entry in the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes suggests he's well regarded. DAWN APPROACH is also entered in the Phoenix and certainly knew his job on his debut at the opening fixture of the season at the Curragh. He had Canary Row just under two lengths behind that day and the runner-up has since won, as have the third and fourth. Jim Bolger's charge can remain unbeaten though Tennessee Wildcat looked a really nice prospect when beating that good yardstick Versilia Gal at Dundalk and must be kept on the right side.
