Media Puzzle Returns To Win Irish Stakes

Thursday, 1st June 2006

In Ireland overnight, trainer Dermot Weld's evergreen 9YO gelding & 2002 Gr1 Melbourne Cup winner Media Puzzle (Theatrical-Market Slide, by Gulch) resumed racing for his 2006 campaign with a 1-length victory in the €60,000 (A$96,000 Listed) Saval Beg Stakes (14 furlongs) at Leopardstown, ahead of another possible tilt at the Gr1 Melbourne Cup. Media Puzzle (ridden by Pat Smullen) defeated Good Surprise (Halling-One Way Street, by Habitat) & Mzuki (Halling-African Peace, by Roberto). Media Puzzle is now likely to aim at the UK Gr1 Gold Cup at Ascot as his next target on June 22.
