O'Brien's Was is a possible for Polly

Aidan O'Brien's Oaks winner Was may have her next start in Sunday's Barclays Bank Ireland Pretty Polly Stakes at the Curragh.

The lightly-raced filly sprang a 20-1 surprise at Epsom on just her third run and the regally-bred youngster is one of half a dozen possibles for Ballydoyle in the Group One.

Betterbetterbetter, Maybe, Soon, Up and Wonderful are others still engaged from the yard.

Dermot Weld's Sapphire, a very impressive winner of the Noblesse Stakes, could make her first appearance in a Group One.

David Wachman's Aloof and Jessica Harrington's Bible Belt are other Irish-trained entries.

John Gosden's Izzi Top, impressive this year in the Dahlia Stakes at Newmarket and in the Middleton Stakes at York, could make the trip over along with David Simcock's I'm A Dreamer and Roger Charlton's Sea Of Heartbreak.
