A disappointing turnout though that won't be a concern to connections of ZAKHM, who should lose his maiden tag without too much fuss. Beaten a short-head by Captain's Affair on his debut at Gowran he then ran the useful Club Wexford close at Leopardstown with the remainder well beaten. That form looks much too strong for these rivals though Harlem Shake caught the eye on his debut over 6f at Fairyhouse and Ger Lyons should find a race for him soon. The remaining pair with experience have shown nothing but the newcomer Bosun's Light is related to a couple of speedy performers so is one to note for the future.
