Dermot Weld will be hoping for yet another fruitful season and, although Free Eagle has been retired to stud, he has another potential middle-distance star in his yard.

He spoke about Zawraq in the highest regard last season and the son of Shamardal looked to have all the talent in the world in his two only starts. Zawraq beat Aidan O'Brien's Sir Isaac Newton as a two-year-old on his debut at Leopardstown in October 2014 and that horse went on to run creditably in the Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot last term.

Zawraq’s second race came as a three-year-old in Leopardstown's 2000 Guineas Trial last April. The Listed contest was a hot affair but Zawraq swept past the field and, although he raced fairly green when he hit the front, victory was never in doubt and he scored by three-and-a-half lengths.

The form from that effort works out extremely well. Second-placed Endless Drama pushed Gleneagles all the way in the Irish 2000 Guineas and sixth Parish Boy had previously beaten Order Of St George, who subsequently landed the Irish St Leger in sensational style.

Zawraq was a lively contender for last year's Epsom Derby following his Leopardstown win but was unfortunately ruled out for the rest of the season. Following a recent stable tour with At The Races, Weld has reported Zawraq has been in good order this year but will not be rushed back and he'll likely be aimed at all the top middle-distance races.

Postponed is all the rage this season after his Dubai Sheema Classic win at Meydan but Weld and Zawraq can spoil the party.
