On Friday Irish trainer Dermot Weld sends just one runner over to England to race at York and when sending his runners across the Irish Sea he has seen huge success, which is why it is worth taking notice of.

The experienced trainer has a strike rate of 17% when bringing his horses over to the Britain from Ireland landing 22 winners from his 131 runners.

A superb horse for Dermot Weld over the years over staying distances he looks to have a lot going for her in this race and with the favourite now being eight years of age and maybe not the horse of old, we are happy to take him on.

Search For A Song is a Group One winner that is consistent majority of the time having form behind Trueshan, Scope and Kyprios in G2 and G1 races in the last few years.

Having performed well last season winning a Group Three event over two miles at the Curragh by close to 10 lengths, she then finished a fair fourth of 12 in France in the G1 Prix Royal-Oak.Making her season debut this term in the Listed Vintage Crop Stakes over 1m6f at Navan, she only found the talented Kyprios too good on the day for the same owners.

Having had that run she should be primed for this event and we think he is big value at 7/2.
