The TDN Topic is a new feature for the TDN, designed to examine a topic in racing from several different angles, and then seek comment from our readers. In each TDN Topic, we ask people with different perspectives—from both inside and outside the sport—to comment on a hot-button issue. Today, we start with whipping.

   Akeed Mofeed confirmed himself as one of Ireland's leading juveniles when registering a second in the Sept. 25 G2 Beresford S. at The Curragh, but a catalogue of minor setbacks meant that he was not seen on the track again until finishing a tired fourth to Camelot (GB) (Montjeu {Ire}) in the G1 Irish Derby back at the Kildare venue June 30. Sitting second as Among Equals (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}) took a clear early lead, the crowd's choice was nudged into the lead at the top of the lane and powered clear to score with something in hand. "The ground was very testing, but I would never pull him out because of the ground," trainer John Oxx told "I'm not sure what happened to him in the Derby. I think it was a mixture of him not staying and blowing up a bit. I don't think he's a stayer, and I think a mile to a mile and a quarter is his trip. They went a good gallop and he quickened up well on the ground. We'll feel our way with him now. He might go for the [G3] Kilternan S. [at Leopardstown Sept. 8]. He's entered in the [G1 Irish] Champion S. [on the same day], but we'll take our time with him before stepping back to Group 1 company." Video, courtesy
