Dusseldorf: German 1,000 Guineas (Group 2) 1m, 3yo fillies
FOLLOWING Caspar Netscher's win in the German 2,000 Guineas at the beginning of this week, Electrelane (Ralph Beckett/Jim Crowley) will attempt to complete a British Classic double in Germany when she contests Sunday's 1,000 Guineas at Dusseldorf.
She finished second to Laugh Out Loud at York last month and was third in the Group 3 Fred Darling at Newbury before that.
Shane Kelly, who partnered Caspar Netscher, can complete a Guineas double on Waldemar Hickst's Dessau, who took a trial over course and distance a month ago by a nose from Cherry Danon (Peter Schiergen/Andrasch Starke), with Waldtraut (Andreas Wohler/Josef Bojko) back in third.
Dessau meets that pair on 2lb better terms and Hickst is confident she can confirm the form.
He said: "She needed that race and won despite not getting a clear run. I am sure she will run a big race."
Light rain is forecast, but the going is likely to be good.
