Fourth behind Discoveries (Ire) (Mastercraftsman {Ire}) in The Curragh's G1 Moyglare Stud S. and sixth to Inspiral (GB) (Frankel {GB}) in the G1 Fillies' Mile at Newmarket either side of a win in the former venue's G3 Weld Park S. at two, Concert Hall (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) returned to add her name to the list of Oaks aspirants with a hard-fought success in Saturday's Listed Salsabil S. at Navan. Settled behind the leading duo early, the daughter of the G1 Epsom Oaks heroine Was muscled her way through a gap to pursue Magical Lagoon (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) and after gaining a slight advantage 150 yards from the line was tough to see it out by a nose.

Concert Hall is the fourth foal and first black-type winner for Was, a granddaughter of the esteemed Park Express who was responsible for the five-times group 1-winning champion and prolific sire New Approach (Ire). Was's full-siblings include the G2 Curragh Cup winner and G1 Epsom Derby third Amhran Na Bhfiann (Ire), the G3 Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial S. scorer Douglas MacArthur (Ire) and the G3 Prix Cleopatre runner-up Al Naamah (Ire). Her 2-year-old is a full-brother to Concert Hall.
