Der Jackpot in der französischen Quinté+-Wette klettert in immer stattlichere Höhen. Am Samstag sind es schon 4,6 Millionen Euro, die im 3. Rennen um 15:08 Uhr ausgeschüttet werden. Es handelt sich um ein mit 60.000 Euro dotiertes Handicap über 1.600 Meter.
Deutsche Pferde findet man unter den 16 dreijährigen Teilnehmern diesmal nicht, aber das tut der Attraktivität der Prüfung keinerlei Abbruch.
Einer der Favoriten dürfte Zephir (C. Demuro) sein, der in dieser Klasse nur nach vorne läuft und auf dieser Bahn knapp geschlagener Vierter war. Dabei landete er allerdings noch zwei Plätze hinter Catch Dream (P.-C. Boudot), der einen Volltreffer ebenfalls redlich verdient hätte.
Der Aga Khan-Vertreter Zyrjann (C. Soumillon) ist ein weiterer starker Faktor, der dort als Sechster ebenfalls nur unweit zurück folgte.
Höchstgewicht trägt Qatar Storm (M. Barzalona), der auf kleineren Bahnen gut in Tritt war. Auch Malandrino (M. Guyon) verdient einen Hinweis, denn er wurde zwischen Zephir und Zyrjann in dem mehrfach angesprochenen Rennen Fünfter.
Coldstone (O. Peslier) gewann zwei seiner letzten drei Rennen und kann sich weiter steigern. Anantapur (A. Badel) sollte man den jüngsten Ausrutscher verzeihen. Esprit de Baileys (F. Veron) war als Siebter in dem Vergleichsrennen hinter vielen Mitkonkurrenten.
Nicht ganz auslassen sollte man noch Premier Avril (St. Pasquier), der allerdings gegen Coldstone zuletzt keine Chance besaß.
Catch Dream (7) – Zephir (10) – Zyrjann (3) – Coldstone (5) – Malandrino (4)
10.000 Euro-Viererwette und viele Formpferde
Pferdestärken aller Art – so lautet das Motto am zweiten Dresdener Renntag der Saison 2015. Denn am ersten PMU-Termin überhaupt auf diesem Kurs stehen dem Publikum Fahrzeuge aus Geschichte und Gegenwart zum Bestaunen und Ausprobieren zur Verfügung. Aber auch der Sport kommt nicht zu kurz in den sieben Prüfungen, von denen die ersten vier ab 12 Uhr nach Frankreich übertragen werden.
Im 1.900 Meter-Rennen für den Derby-Jahrgang (1. Rennen um 12 Uhr) trauen wir dem von Andreas Wöhler vorbereiteten The Artist (E. Pedroza) jetzt schon den ersten Sieg zu, was beim Debüt in Mülheim noch nicht ganz gelang.
In einer Dreijährigen-Prüfung über 1.400 Meter (5. Rennen um 14:30 Uhr) darf man vor allem auf Yasmin Almenräders Silicon Valley (I. Ferguson) gespannt sein, die in Bremen einiges Vertrauen mit einem sicheren Erfolg rechtfertigte und sicherlich noch mehr zu bieten hat.
Das gilt auch für Universal Star (A. Pietsch) aus dem Stall von Roland Dzubasz, der hier auf keinerlei Opposition stieß. Chapman’s Voice (M. Cadeddu) und Woomera (E. Pedroza) haben ihr Potenzial ebenfalls schon angedeutet.
Gleich zwei Ausgleiche III bereichern das Programm. Über 2.200 Meter (2. Rennen um 12:30 Uhr) scheint der auf diesem Kurs so imponierende Dzubasz-Schützling Lado (B. Ganbat) beste Karten zu haben. Aber auch Antonia Bella (W. Panov) zeigt nur noch Top-Leistungen.
Über 1.400 Meter (6. Rennen um 15:10 Uhr) könnte der von Stefan Richter trainierte Marju Prince (St. Hellyn) nach der starken Form aus Frankfurt eine Wette wert sein.
Die Wettchance des Tages mit einer Garantie von 10.000 Euro wird in der Viererwette des 4. Rennens um 13:35 Uhr (vierjährige und ältere sieglose Pferde, 1.900 m) ausgespielt. Hier empfehlen wir Ihnen die mit Top-Form antretenden Summernight Rain (St. Hellyn) und Quarryman (D. Porcu) als Bankpferde.
Tipps für die Rennen:

Dresden, 7 Rennen, erster Start 12 Uhr!
Die französische Paradebahn Longchamp rüstet sich am Samstag wieder zu einem Top-Renntag, denn mit dem Prix du Palais-Royal (Gr. III, 80.000 Euro, 1.400 m, 5. Rennen um 16:10 Uhr) für dreijährige und ältere Pferde hat man ein starkes Highlight im Programm. Gleich drei Deutsche geben sich die Ehre.
Stall Nizzas Amarillo (D. Schiergen) aus dem Stall von Peter Schiergen blieb in der Silbernen Peitsche in München als Titelverteidiger blass, kann aber erwiesenermaßen deutlich mehr. In Glanzform agiert Artplace (D. Santiago/S. Smrczek), der nach den guten Formen in großen Handicaps nun in die Gruppe-Klasse steigt. Willliam Mongil vertraut auf Grand Vintage (O. Peslier), der beim Comeback in einem Course B-Rennen beinahe gewonnen hätte.
Der Prix Djebel-Gewinner Ride Like The Wind (M. Barzalona) hatte es in den englischen Guineas deutlich schwerer, ist hier einer von mehreren möglichen Siegkandidaten.
Amadea (V. Cheminaud/P. Harley), im Besitz der Fußball-Stars Torsten Oehrl und Nick Proschwitz, scheint nach den Handicap-Platzierungen im 1. Rennen um 14 Uhr (19.000 Euro-Verkaufsrennen, 2.800 m) besonders interessant.
Im 2. Rennen um 14:30 Uhr (33.000 Euro, 2.800 m) gehört Dieter Bürkles Noble Raven (F. Veron) auch mit dem Longchamp-Treffer im Gepäck zu den Außenseitern.
Nach dem guten fünften Rang in einem 30.000 Euro-Handicap nannte Sascha Smrczek Tripura (M. Barzalona) für das 4. Rennen um 15:40 Uhr (27.000 Euro-Verkaufsrennen, 2.400 m) nach, allerdings stehen nach Rating noch einige Pferde über ihr.
Seine jüngsten Platzierungen geben Rupert Plerschs Sir Toby (M. Denuault) im 7. Rennen um 17:10 Uhr (18.000 Euro, 2.000 m) durchaus Möglichkeiten.
Tipps für die Rennen:
1.Rennen: Manzaro (3) – Amadea (5) – Niquel (1) – Dust In The Wind (4)
2.Rennen: Spirit’s Revench (1) – Domeside (4) – Saint’alberto (3) – As des Flandres (2)

Longchamp, 8 Rennen, erster Start 14 Uhr!
CANIGAO, the daughter of WESTERN WINTER, makes her debut. Keep watching the betting. He is currently ante post favourite. GREY'S A ROCKIN showed very good improvement in his second run last time. Should show even more improvement. ABASHIRI is also making his debut. LECTURE D showed some improvement last time. May place. KING DJANGO will need to find a better finish but has showed promise in his two runs thus far.
1st - CANIGAO (3); 2nd - GREY'S A ROCKIN (6); 3rd - ABASHIRI (1); 4th - LECTURE D (10); 5th - KING DJANGO (9)
GAIN GROUND makes her debut over a distance that should suit her. MELLIFLORA runs in KZN for the first time. Will have to repeat penultimate run. WORK ETHIC finished a distant third on debut last time. Lost ground at the start. Could improve. ROY'S QUEEN improved by fifteen lengths in her second run last time. Must be respected on that run. TRULY JULIA makes her debut. Keep an eye on the betting.
1st - GAIN GROUND (1); 2nd - MELLIFLORA (3); 3rd - WORK ETHIC (8); 4th - ROY'S QUEEN (5); 5th - TRULY JULIA (7)
LET IT RIP ran her best race in four last time. She has run in to problems in all four runs to date and desperately needs a change of fortune. SWORD STORM has shown very good improvement in her last two. Worth considering. FLORAL SECRET cast a shoe in running last time but still ran a good race. TOPAZ RAIN has consistent form but weakens. ZARA'S LEGACY has been losing ground but did show significant improvement last time.
1st - LET IT RIP (1); 2nd - SWORD STORM (4); 3rd - FLORAL SECRET (3); 4th - TOPAZ RAIN (5); 5th - ZARA'S LEGACY (9)
HEIR TO RICHES ran his best race in seven last time when running on after a slow start. KILLARNEY HOUSE is never far back and he has placed this C & D. ROYAL CHAMPION has threatened on occasion but could have more to find for the win. VINTAGE ANGEL ran on well in an improved run last time. INDIGO SPIRIT stayed on when making his debut last time. May have to confirm.
1st - HEIR TO RICHES (1); 2nd - KILLARNEY HOUSE (5); 3rd - ROYAL CHAMPION (4); 4th - VINTAGE ANGEL (2); 5th - INDIGO SPIRIT (12)
RACE 5: LONSDALE STIRRUP CUP (Grade 3) - HEART OF A LION looks to have just that
HEART OF A LION takes a drop in class for the first of three features on today's card. He is a versatile four year old who has contested well over a set of distances ranging from sprints to 3200m. He has been coming back to his best in recent runs and could feature favourably this afternoon. He may find a better finish over the shorter journey.
GONE BABY GONE has been prepped for this race when placing fourth this C & D last time. That race was against slightly stronger. She had to ease during the race. Look for a stout effort if staying on and finishing well. Is better off at the weights with SOLID SPEED
SOLID SPEED won well this C & D last time. Is 2kg worse than GONE BABY GONE when beating him by just over two lengths. The Dean Kannemeyer yard has done extremely well in Durban during this Winter Season and is unbeaten over the distance (2 from 2).
Mike De Kock sends out RAAEES. he has been extremely disappointing in recent times after a good start to his racing career. He has won over the distance but has for the most part been a slow starter. Grant Van Niekerk rides him for the first time and rarely rides for the yard.
Stable companion, KINGSTON MINES, will however be partnered by stable jockey, Anthony Delpech. He runs at this track for the first time, drops in class from last time and also in trip from his last three. He won two of those three over further but has won this distance before. He beat a good field three runs back in the J & B Stayers at Kenilworth.
1st - HEART OF A LION (6); 2nd - GONE BABY GONE (10); 3rd - SOLID SPEED (7); 4th - RAAEES (11); 5th - KINGSTON MINES (4)
RACE 6: WOOLAVINGTON 2000 (Grade 1) - MAJMU looks to be the one to beat
The much awaited appearance of MAJMU on the tracks in KZN is now over. She, as well as her main rivals amongst the fillies' ranks, do look a cut above most of their three year old males counterparts in the country. She makes her debut in Durban with the title of Champion Three Year old filly for the 2014/5 Season a definite possibility, although, depending of the outcome of the Grade 1 Daily News in the next race, that title could be between these two were SIREN'S CALL to win. She gave a good account of herself last time in the Champions Challenge at Turffontein when beaten by WYLIE HALL. That run was against some older males, but over today's distance. She does look hard to beat and her presence should attract much interest from the public. With a record of six from eight wins, she does look like the one to beat.
TAMAANEE finished three and a half lengths behind MAJMU the last time they met in the Empress Club Stakes. They meet again at level weights. The gap could close on the day but all things being equal, TAMAANEE should finish behind MAJMU this afternoon.
INARA will be finishing well. She has raced in some good races before and has only been out of the top three once in nine outings. She should get the extra distance. Respect the Mike Bass yard in KZN during the Winter Season.
PINE PRINCESS beat the top class filly, SIREN'S CALL, in the Oaks. She shows plenty of heart and if she can repeat that last run she must have a very good chance. Bernard Fayd'Herbe rides for the Mike De Kock yard. TROPHY WIFE hasn't won in quite some time and is only a two time winner from fifteen starts. She has a habit of running honest races and she could run into the money this afternoon.
1st - MAJMU (1); 2nd - TAMAANEE (4); 3rd - INARA (2); 4th - PINE PRINCESS (3); 5th - TROPHY WIFE (5)
RACE 7: DAILY NEWS 2000 (Grade 1) - SIREN'S CALL aims to be best three year old in the country
SIREN'S CALL will be put to the test this afternoon when she takes on some good three year old males. Sadly for the racing enthusiasts she will not be seen doing battle with MAJMU. Were both to win their respective races this afternoon, any future meetings of these two will attract the crowds to the race track, irrespective of where the race were to be run. Her form has been excellent and she was just pipped on the line last time when pipped on the line by PINE PRINCESS. She could be excused that day as it was the first time that she had travelled that far. The 2000m should suit more, especially with the short straight at Greyville. Not in her favour could be the wide draw of fourteen in a sixteen horse field. His jockey for the race, Piere Strydom, will no doubt have planned how he will ride this filly from the Sean Tarry yard. Good horses with good jockeys can win from anywhere on the track! He has ridden her to all five of her wins with two seconds from seven starts. As has become customary, Sean Tarry rarely leaves the track on a feature race day without at least one winner.
UNPARALLELED has threatened to win a Grade 1. The way in which he won the Grade 2 Dingaans must give him a chance. He started that day at 50/1. He does have an excellent turn of speed but doesn't always produce his best work late. On his day he must have a good shout.
ERTIJAAL has been disappointing in his last two. For those looking to back him, it must be said that he did have excuses in both when the going was not firm. It is likely to be back to firm going again today. He had to be steadied last time and was a bit unbalanced as he left the stalls and was slow away. The time before that he was bumped at the start. If he can overcome the problems with his start then he should have a good shout in this race. Anthony Delpech rides for Mike De Kock. Having said that, he did win his first four starts including the Grade 1 Derby at Kenilworth three runs back.
DEPUTY JUD is never far back. He went down to ERTIJAAL by less than a length when they met in January. DEPUTY JUD is 2kg worse off and should finish behind ERTIJAAL again.
THE CONGLOMERATE won the Guineas at this track four weeks ago. He won that race with authority when beating MAC DE LAGO by two lengths. The win give the Cape trainers a chance of repeating their success in this race last year with LEGISLATE.
1st - SIREN'S CALL (16); 2nd - UNPARALLELED (7); 3rd - ERTIJAAL (5); 4th - DEPUTY JUD (4); 5th - THE CONGLOMERATE (3)
DIZZY FEET has some good form but her best runs have been at other courses. Did show improvement last time when finding a fair finish. ROYALSECURITYBABY did show improvement last time and could be with following this time around. QUINTELLA has been finishing well and should feature in the shake up but only one win in sixty one starts is a bit disconcerting. FINDING NEVERLAND is holding form well and has a shout on current form. RESPECT AT BAY has won twice from three starts and is current antepost favourite. Include in all exotics, where possible.
1st - DIZZY FEET (7); 2nd - ROYALSECURITYBABY (1); 3rd - QUINTELLA (11); 4th - FINDING NEVERLAND (10); 5th - RESPECT AT BAY (6)
MISS STINGRAY has been producing a good finish in her last three runs despite starting slowly. Very good chance if repeating. IN OTHER WORDS won her maiden last time at the second attempt. Two good runs now and should be a factor if not needing to confirm. CALL ME MAYBE drops in class. Won maiden and post maiden before latest effort. OSTERIA was returning from a break last time. watch this time around. WANING CRESCENT has had two good post maiden runs. Not to be ignored.
1st - MISS STINGRAY (8); 2nd - IN OTHER WORDS (5); 3rd - CALL ME MAYBE (2); 4th - OSTERIA (3); 5th - WANING CRESCENT (4)
SPRITZER has his problems but did show some improvement in his third run last time after a lengthy break. SERGEANT TIBBS returns from a five month break but did improve in his two runs prior to that break. CALL THE CLOWN has been running on in his last two. These two runs were vastly improved and he too should be involved at the finish. INDIAN CONNECTION is never far back but has his problems. AVARICIOUS has some good post maiden form.
1st - SPRITZER (10); 2nd - SERGEANT TIBBS (11); 3rd - CALL THE CLOWN (6); 4th - INDIAN CONNECTION (5); 5th - AVARICIOUS (3)
BEST BET: RACE 6 NUMBER 1 MAJMU
BEST VALUE: RACE 7 NUMBER 16 SIREN'S CALL
BEST OUTSIDER: RACE 5 NUMBER 6 HEART OF A LION
SEVEN RAINBOWS was bumped last time but still managed to finish a close up second. TALES OF MAMBO has shown improvement in her last two despite being slow away. TEMPEST can feature if at his best this afternoon. MIESQUE'S STORM is still improving. SHORT OF TAIL has an upset chance.
1st - SEVEN RAINBOWS (2); 2nd - TALES OF MAMBO (14); 3rd - TEMPEST (1); 4th - MIESQUE'S STORM (7); 5th - SHORT OF TAIL (6)
CAPUCHE must have a chance on a vastly improved latest effort despite not keeping to a straight course last time. CERVANTES has good form but has his problems. AMERICAN MAGIC could be coming back to form again. WALKABOUT ran his best race in seven last time and must have a chance on that effort. TURNUPTHEHEAT has moderate form and needs to find a finish.
1st - CAPUCHE (2); 2nd - CERVANTES (3); 3rd - AMERICAN MAGIC (1); 4th - WALKABOUT (8); 5th - TURNUPTHEHEAT (10)
OUTA MY WAY has some decent post maiden form. Stayed on last time. TRACY'S LEGACY makes her debut. Keep an eye on the betting. BIZZY PEG won her maiden at the second try last time. Won well and should be a threat. NEGROAMARO makes her debut. Could be anything. HOWDYULIKEIT showed good pace on debut last time before weakening.
1st - OUTA MY WAY (2); 2nd - TRACY'S LEGACY (8); 3rd - BIZZY PEG (1); 4th - NEGROAMARO (5); 5th - HOWDYULIKEIT (4)
ARABIAN BEAT won the Nursery last time and should account for this field. That win gave him two from three and it was also this C & D. He does look a cut above the rest as he moved sown in class. PAULUS did not show in a stronger race in a feature last time. Can run well into the money. STREETWEAR never showed on debut last time. Has a mountain to climb but may be the one to put into larger quartet perms. SLINKY JACK disappointed in his post maiden last time. Give another chance. DR FINLEY also has some improvement to make to win this.
1st - ARABIAN BEAT (1); 2nd - PAULUS (3); 3rd - STREETWEAR (9); 4th - SLINKY JACK (4); 5th - DR FINLEY (2)
DOING IT FOR DAN will be running on and has certainly improved in his last three. Has been a consistent performer throughout. Looks to be the one to beat. APPROVAL RATING could be coming back to form slowly. TALKTOTHESTARS won against weaker last time. Ends the races with respiratory noises but did win latest by five lengths. MORPHEUS won a good race from start to finish last time over a similar sprint distance. AMAZING STRIKE did not show in the Guineas at Greyville won by THE CONGLOMERATE a month ago. The fact that he ran in that race must say something about his ability at home.
1st - DOING IT FOR DAN (4); 2nd - APPROVAL RATING (7); 3rd - TALKTOTHESTARS (10); 4th - MORPHEUS (5); 5th - AMAZING STRIKE (3)
EXCALIVAR has good form but against weaker. With a light mass he could finish at the head of this field. Will be running on. LOCO POR GANAR is in top form and should earn something in this race. GLENSHEE is battling for that second win but does have a strong finish and this is only his eighth race and should improve. ON THE NOD will need to repeat penultimate run when running on. VICTORY CRUISE hangs badly and could cause a surprise.
1st - EXCALIVAR (14); 2nd - LOCO POR GANAR (4); 3rd - GLENSHEE (10); 4th - ON THE NOD (13); 5th - VICTORY CRUISE (5)
STONEHENGE won well against stronger last time but over 2000m. Has won over shorter so the trip should not be any problem. MASTER SWITCH cost himself the race last time by switching late. Can make amends this afternoon. ANTARCTIC CALL has hims problems but also loses ground at the start. Appears to be the nervous type though. PIVOTAL PURSUIT was rewarded for consistency last time with a win. BATTLE IN SEATTLE drops in class with a light mass. Moderate form.
1st - STONEHENGE (3); 2nd - MASTER SWITCH (1); 3rd - ANTARCTIC CALL (5); 4th - PIVOTAL PURSUIT (10); 5th - BATTLE IN SEATTLE (12)
LAST BATTLE ran an improved race last time but could count himself a little unlucky in the process. He has won this C & D before. DEVIOUS TIGER has been improving and has also been running on,. Should be in the shake up. NIGHT EDITOR has been a very close finisher in his last two runs. Expect another good finish this afternoon. SUPER CLUB has shown marginal improvement in his last two runs. TIGER'S LEGACY did not get the best of breaks last time but still ran good race.
1st - LAST BATTLE (3); 2nd - DEVIOUS TIGER (8); 3rd - NIGHT EDITOR (4); 4th - SUPER CLUB (14); 5th - TIGER'S LEGACY (16)
VIA DELLA TIGRE won her maiden over a year ago and has been battling for that second win. She could be just about ready for win number two this afternoon. Showed a glimpse last time. NINIVAH won well when beating PANCHATANTA last time. That was a good run and can repeat. AL FARABI won on debut last time. May need to confirm but watch the betting on the Mike De Kock trained filly. TELL MY STAR ran her best race in a long while last time. Must be respected at this level. TORRELAVEGA has steady form but was baulked last time.
1st - VIA DELLA TIGRE (14); 2nd - NINIVAH (7); 3rd - AL FARABI (3); 4th - TELL MY STAR (2); 5th - TORRELAVEGA (13)
ONE YESTERDAY has very good form of late with two wins from three starts. Will be finishing well. BREATHLESS has the ability to pop up. Only fair form though. PANCHATANTA ran well in her post maiden when being run out of it late. KOSAVA has had some difficult runs in her last two. Will improve if not finding traffic problems. MILLENIUM REIGN could be improving again.
1st - ONE YESTERDAY (2); 2nd - BREATHLESS (14); 3rd - PANCHATANTA (11); 4th - KOSAVA (8); 5th - MILLENIUM REIGN (6)
BEST BET: RACE 4 NUMBER 1 ARABIAN BEAT

BEST OUTSIDER: RACE 9 NUMBER 14 VIA DELLA TIGRE
Race 1, Dirt, 1 Mile, Claiming $6.25k, $15,000, 19:00 CEST
#4 Rich Daddy was 11 lengths ahead in his last dirt-race in March, then was placed well as usual on the grass
#8 Penitant Prayers won last November in Park west and then took a long break; impressed with recent training runs
#3 Latent Fire earned some small prize money in his recent turf starts in higher class; was more successful on the dirt
#2 Divine Michael finished about 20 lengths behind the 3rd #5 Forest Friends in a similar race, but could surprise with the weight allowance of his highly talented apprentice jockey
Analysis: Rich Daddy should wire the field like in his last dirt-start, his main rival Penitant Prayers also likes to lead, but got a worse post
Race 2, Turf, 1 Mile, Maiden Claiming $40-50k, $31,000, 19:30 CEST
#5 Huehuetoca was already 3 times runner-up in higher class in her 5 starts, but last time she finished just 5th after a bad trip from an outer post
#4 Princess Fiona pressured the leader throughout the race and was just beaten by a length - was a big improvement
#2 Tzi Our Destiny always earned money even in higher class, but only once fought for victory
#1 Soft and Silent was placed well in higher class, only in her recent start she was beaten far as 5th
#3 Princess Jasmine drifted out during her attack, could have been better than just 6th; blinkers added today
Analysis: Huehuetoca is due for victory and today from a much better post there is no excuse for a defeat
Race 3, Dirt, 1,300 m, Maiden Special Weight, $40,000, 20:00 CEST
#1 More Applause stalked the leaders as 3rd in her debut, swung out for an attack in the stretch, but just gained a length
#7 R Cat Daddy finished 3rd in his debut in March, had to stop training for over a month, but fast recent workout
#5 Breezy My Way finished 5th twice as 2-year-old in highest maiden class; many fast workouts since January
#3 My High Roller was no factor early this year, but improved significantly in training and could surprise
#2 C. P. Warrior was the fastest debutant in training, but #4 Starship Mercury is ridden by a more successful jockey
Analysis: More Applause showed a nice effort in her debut and with only a slight improvement she should win
Race 4, Dirt, 1,300 m, Sea Lily Handicap, $60,000, 20:30 CEST
#2 Best Behavior is the classiest in this field; disappointed a bit as runner-up in the Sunrise Stakes, but she couldn’t get the desired lead in wide lanes
#4 Quiet Hour was 3rd and 5th in her recent stakes starts, before she won over today’s distance in high allowance class
#5 Celebrity Star won early this month against the top pick despite a long battle for the lead; this was a big surprise after her former results in lower class
#3 Flutterby was last year at stakes level 4 times among the first four, then failed twice, but recently just beaten by a neck in the Sand Dollar Stakes over a mile
#6 Little Alexis was the favorite in the Sunrise Stakes, but never came close to the top group despite a nice trip
#1 Almost an Angel lost her top form on the turf track; her new trainer made a test on the dirt and she really was fast
Analysis: Best Behavior stands out by class and should win, if she is ridden more offensively than last time
Race 5, Dirt, 1 Mile, Maiden Claiming $10k, $14,000, 21:00 CEST
#5 Spiritual Leader dueled for the lead last time with today’s excellent apprentice rider and fell back to 3rd place
#9 Valid Wildfire improved from start to start and recently she was beaten just by an outstanding horse; closer
#3 Bella Forever and #4 Truericepudding prefer to run in the lead; the former got better post and was more successful
Analysis: Spiritual Leader should follow the frontrunners and win, but if she duels for the lead again, Valid Wildfire could triumph at the end
