Connections of Alive Alive Oh are hanging on to the dream that the filly can go right to the top.

She was denied a run in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Salsabil Stakes at Navan today when the meeting was abandoned, but is still likely to turn up for the Listed event over a mile and a quarter as the meeting has been rescheduled for May 7.

A convincing winner on her seasonal debut at Cork on March 30, the Tommy Stack-trained three-year-old holds lofty entries in the Blue Wind Stakes at Naas next month and the Darley Irish Oaks at the Curragh in July.

"She won well in Cork and should have run at Navan on Sunday, but it was cancelled," Stack's son and assistant Fozzy told at The Races.

"They are going to reschedule that race for a couple of weeks and I would imagine we would probably go there.

"She's a nice filly at the minute and she will have to progress, and we will see where we go. We keep dreaming and for the minute the dream is still alive.

"What she does next time will probably tell us where we're going - whether we are going for an Irish Oaks or something like that, or just going Listed."
