This hasn't been a good race for the Weld yard but Peace Accord makes his handicap debut from a lowly mark and this well-connected colt should be capable of very much better than we've seen so far. Strapless started favourite at Dundalk in March after several good efforts on soft ground but was clearly unhappy on the surface and finished well beaten. She's definitely much better than that and is on the short-list but DOC HOLLIDAY looks the one to be on. Eddie Lynam's charge hadn't shown much last season and was having his first start since October when chasing home Three Bells at Fairyhouse earlier this month. He was well supported to make a successful return and compensation awaits. Target Acquired runs with a penalty for Friday's Down Royal victory and this looks a bit tougher.
