Weld wants rain for Brooch

Dermot Weld would like to see some rain fall on the Curragh before committing Brooch to Sunday's Sea The Stars Pretty Polly Stakes.

Unbeaten in four starts, the four-year-old would be facing her toughest test to date.

The Khalid Abdullah-owned filly landed the Lanwades Stud Stakes in fine style on her only run this season but prefers a bit of dig in the ground.

"She's a nice filly, she's been progressing well," said Weld.

"We'll just have to see what the ground is like for her.

"She likes a bit of cut, so we'd need some rain to consider running."
