Germany: Rolando to take step up in class in stride
Rolando to take step
up in class in stride By David Conolly-Smith 5:52PM 5 NOV 2016
Preview: Germany, Sunday
Krefeld: Grosser Preis von Link in Krefeld der Tölke + Fischer Gruppe (Group 3) 2yo, 1m½f (12.30 GMT)
THE last two Group races of the German season take place at Krefeld on Sunday and both are purely domestic affairs.
Four of the runners ran in Cologne's Preis des Winterfavoriten three weeks ago, with local hope Real Value coming out best in third.
However that was a messy race and fifth-placed Colomano, one of three runners here trained by Markus Klug, was very unlucky that day and could reverse the form.
Andreas Wöhler took the Winterfavorit with Langtang and he relies on Rolando here. Rolando was an impresive winner of his maiden and could successfully step up in class now.
Also on Sunday
Krefeld: Grosser Preis von RONGO FOOD – Niederrhein-Pokal (Group 3) 3yo, 1m2f55y (1.45GMT)
No fewer than seven of the 11 declared runners met in a similar race at Baden-Baden a fortnight ago, which was won by Palace Prince from Devastar. Palace Prince could well repeat that victory on worse terms now.
Vif Monsieur has won this race for the past two years, while Nordico was runner-up in 2015, but neither can be recommended on recent form.
Of more interest could be the lightly-raced and well-bred Amazona and Fast Lightning.
