Thursday's Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden at Leopardstown saw the latest TDN Rising Star for Frankel (GB) in Moyglare Stud's Homeless Songs (Ire) as the homebred made an impressive winning debut for the Dermot Weld stable. A half-sister to this year's Listed Orby S. winner Reve de Vol (Ire) (Siyouni {Fr}), the bay who holds an entry in the G1 Moyglare Stud S. was settled towards the rear early by Oisin Orr. Making eyecatching progress around the outer to get within hailing distance of the leaders passing halfway, the 8-1 shot devoured the ground in the straight to overhaul the solid yardstick Agartha (Ire) (Caravaggio) with half a furlong remaining before staying on powerfully to score by two lengths. There was another length back to another filly with experience in a decent maiden in Smile of Love (Ire) (Tamayuz {GB}), with Ballydoyle's Twinkle (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), the full-sister to Anthony Van Dyck (Ire), coming home in fifth.

"It was impressive," Weld said of the 15th TDN Rising Star for her sire. "She's been working very nicely at home and I thought she'd be tough to beat on the day, but inexperience had to be a concern first time. She was green early on and Oisin took his time on her, which was the plan. She could be very talented. The Moyglare would be the plan for her and we'll maybe have one start between now and then. She's a lovely, beautifully-bred filly and she's a stayer with speed. Please God there is plenty to look forward to."

Bred on the same cross as Adayar (Ire) and the afternoon's Newmarket maiden winner Frankella (GB), as well as the smart Dream Castle (GB) and Mostahdaf (Ire), Homeless Songs is the second foal out of the talented Joailliere (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) who also scored at the first time of asking by seven lengths as a 3-year-old over this trip at Gowran Park in 2015. Pitched straight into the G1 Irish 1000 Guineas, she was a touch over-awed in ninth there before going on to place in the G3 Concorde S., G3 Park Express S. and G3 Gladness S. and win the Listed Frankfurt Sprint Trophy. Her aforementioned first foal Reve de Vol had been third in last year's G2 Champions Juvenile S. before winning the Orby over 10 furlongs and is expected to stay a mile and a half by the Ger Lyons stable.

Joailliere's unraced dam Majestic Silver (Ire) (Linamix {Fr}) also produced the G3 Dance Design S. and G3 Meld S. scorer Carla Bianca (Ire) (Dansili {GB}), who was also twice a winner at listed level and fourth in the 2013 G1 Moyglare Stud S., and the G2 Beresford S. runner-up True Solitaire (Ire) (Oasis Dream {GB}). She is out of the listed winner Diamond Trim (Ire) (Highest Honor {Fr}), dam of the star stayer Profound Beauty (Ire) (Danehill) whose winning exploits included seven black-type contests and who was also runner-up in the G1 Irish St Leger. Her daughter of Dubawi, Rose de Pierre (Ire), was a dual listed winner and runner-up in the G3 Athasi S. Diamond Trim is out of Moyglare's gold-mine mare In Anticipation (Ire) (Sadler's Wells), linking her to the luminaries Irresistible Jewel (Ire) (Danehill), Princess Highway (Street Cry {Ire}), Royal Diamond (Ire) (King's Best) and Mad About You (Ire) (Indian Ridge {Ire}). Joailliere's yearling colt is by Sea the Stars (Ire), while she also has a 2021 full-brother to the winner.
