Dermot Weld has won five of the last ten renewals including the last three while Aidan O'Brien has won four. The former is represented by Mahon Falls, a half-sister to a couple of useful winners and with her stable going well she has to be of interest. O'Brien has Wilshire Boulevard entered and this close relative of the high-class Zoffany could well turn out to be a very useful performer. FREEDOM SQUARE steps up markedly in trip after a very promising introduction behind Fast In The Wind over 5f at the Curragh. The runner-up has won subsequently and the experience may prove enough to hold off the newcomers. Zakhm is the first foal of a mare from a speedy family and is one to note for the future.
