Curragh-based trainer Dermot Weld on weather watch ahead of Irish Champions Weekend

TRAINER Dermot Weld is on a “weather watch” regarding his runners over next weekend’s Irish Champions Weekend taking place atg Leopardstown and the Curragh. Weld, who has had a tremendous season thus far, said that most of his horses needed a cut in the ground to be seen at their best.


Forgotten Rules and Pale Mimosa are Weld’s two big runners in the Group One Palmerstown House Estate Irish St Leger at the Curragh on Sunday, 14th September. Speaking today the Curragh-based trainer said; “Forgotten Rules and Pale Mimosa are in great form but they both need a cut in the ground. The same can be said of Carla Bianca who holds an engagement in the Group Two Moyglare “Jewels” Blandford Stakes on the same afternoon. The weather seems set fair for the coming days so we will wait and see for the moment and make a final decision about all our horses later next week.”


Weld also has Alveena and Zannda in the Group One Moyglare Stud Stakes and Tombelaine in the Group One Goffs Vincent O’Brien National Stakes.
