Famous Name: Smooth win

Famous Name: Smooth win

Famous Name was far too classy for his rivals in the Listed Trigo Stakes at Leopardstown, coming home well clear of Devoted To You and Choose Me.

The second winner on the card for trainer Dermot Weld, the result was never in doubt after taking up the running over a furlong out and he returned at the generous odds of 11/8 due to punters' concerns over the quick ground.

There was seven lengths back to the runner-up Devoted To You (9/1) who came from off the pace under Colm O'Donoghue.

Choose Me (7/1) won the battle for third from Harriers Call.

Rain Forest took the field along but was brushed aside as the field bunched up on the turn for home, whilst stablemate You'll Be Mine made a challenge two furlongs out but was unable to keep her effort going.

Similarly Priomhbhean weakened quickly having raced prominently throughout.

Weld said: "He's a lovely horse to train. That's 10 Group and Listed wins in total for him and he's very good round Leopardstown.

"He's entered in Paris on Sunday so a decision will be taken on that later in the week.

"As regards whether he stays in training next year, I would love him to as he has a tremendous enthusiasm for racing, but I'll have to speak to Lord Teddy Grimthorpe (racing manager for owner Khalid Abdullah)."
