WE WILL HAVE A MOST INTERESTING WEEKEND OF RACING THIS SATURDAY AND SUNDAY WITH THE CLASSIC TRIALS CONTINUING IN CAPANNELLE AND A REALLY GOOD MIXED CARD OF FLAT AND JUMPING IN MILAN ON SUNDAY.ON SATURDAY SIRACUSA IN SICILY AND MILAN STAGE TWO INTERESTING CARDS.UNFORTUNATELY THE SUNDAY MEETING IN PISA IS POSPONED DUE TO SAFETY WORRIES.
SIRACUSA GOES AHEAD AFTER THE IMPOSITION OF MEASURES TO STOP THE SPREAD OF EQUINE RHINOPNEUMONIA WHICH CAUSED SO MANY PROBLEMS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MEDITERRANEAN IN VALENCIA AT A SHOW JUMPING COMPETITION.

THE HIGHLIGHT OF SAN SIRO’S CARD ON SATURDAY IS THE PREMIO DEI LAGHI FOR THREE YEAR OLDS OVER SIX FURLONGS A TRADITIONAL TRIAL FOR THE TUDINI THE TOP SPRINT IN THE FIRST HALF OF THE YEAR.JOINT FAVOURITES ARE LIKELY TO BE LIVE ON STAGE(CABLE BAY-PRINCESSE EVA) FROM ALDUINO BOTTI AND LUCIANO VITABILE’S CAPTAIN MAGNUM(KODIAC-NATURAL APPEAL) WHO BOTH FOUGHT OUT THE FINISH OF THE LISTED DIVINO AMORE LAST NOVEMBER.A SERIOUS CANDIDATE WILL BE I AM MAGNETIC(MEHMAS-LILIUM) WHO WAS THIRD IN A TIPPERARY MAIDEN JUST BEHIND ST MARKS BASILICA AND LATER PLACED BEHIND THE CARAVAGGIO SECOND GRAMMATA.IN ITALY THE MEHMAS COLT WON HIS MAIDEN IN PISA AND FOLLOWED UP WITH A VERY GOOD SECOND BEHIND RAIFAN ONE OF LAST YEARS FASTEST TWO YEAR OLD COLTS.I AM MAGNETIC WAS BRED BY THE RINGFORT STUD IN RHODE WHO OF COURSE BRED HARLEM SHAKE WINNER OF THE TOP SPRINTS THE PREMIOS OMENONI(G3),CERTOSA AND CANCELLI BOTH LISTED IN 2014.HARLEM SHAKE IS A HALF BROTHER TO UBETTABELIEVEIT WHO WON LAST YEARS FLYING CHILDERS(G2)

ON SUNDAY IN ROME WE HAVE TWO OF THE MOST IMPORTANT TRIALS FOR THE TWO GUINEAS CLASSICS.LAST YEARS UNBEATEN CHAMPION TWO YEAR OLD FILLY TELEPATIC GLANCES(PRIDE OF DUBAI-CAVERAN) WILL REAPPEAR IN THE PREMIO TORRICOLA OVER CAPANNELLE’S CLASSIC MILE COURSE.ENDO BOTTI’S FILLY WAS HUGELY IMPRESSIVE IN 2020 WINNING THREE FROM THREE CULMINATING IN A DECISIVE WIN IN THE GROUP 2 PREMIO DORMELLO WHICH WAS THE RICHEST RACE FOR TWO YEAR OLD FILLIES IN EUROPE LAST YEAR WITH A 257000 EURO PRIZEFUND.IF SHE WINS THIS IN GOOD STYLE I BELIEVE SHE WILL BE SENT FOR THE POULE DESSAI DES POULICHES(FRENCH 1000 GUINEAS) IN LONGCHAMP IN MAY AS THE BOTTI/CRISTINA BRIVIO TEAM  ALREADY HAS A VERY STRONG HAND FOR THE REGINA ELENA WITH  THE LIAM AND NOREEN O DONOVAN BRED SPHERE OF FIRE AND MUTAMAIZAH BRED IN WATERFORD BY MICHAEL RYAN AND ALSO UNBEATEN.THERE ARE NINE FILLIES LINING UP AGANIST LAST YEARS CHAMPION INCLUDING WINDY DANCER A VERY PROMISING KODIAC HALF SISTER TO THE CHAMPION SPRINTER THE CONQUEROR AND CANDY STORE THE WINNER OF THE GROUP 3 PREMIO CUMANI OVER A MILE.OTHER INTERESTING RUNNERS ARE ADAAY SECRET ARGUABLY THE BEST TWO YEAR OLD IN SICILY LAST YEAR AND THE TALLY HO BRED SUICIDE SQUAD(COULSTY-STRIKE A LIGHT)A FOUR TIME WINNER. TELEPATIC GLANCES TO WIN.

THE PREMIO DAUMIER NAMED AFTER ONE OF FEDERICO TESIO’S GREAT CHAMPIONS HAS PROVIDED MANY WINNERS OF THE PARIOLI OVER THE YEARS SO IT IS ALWAYS OF GREAT INTEREST.ON THE SURFACE THIS YEARS VERSION IS NOT OF THE SAME LEVEL BUT ONLY TIME WILL TELL.HIGHEST RATED ON TWO YEAR OLD FORM IS THE SEAN O SULLIVAN BRED PLEASE EXCEED(OUTSTRIP-MENESTEEM) TWICE A WINNER IN ROME IN 2020 WILL HAVE THE CHAMPION JOCKEY DARIO VARGIU IN THE SADDLE.BOTH SUPERNINO(ANJAAL-MAJESTIC DESERT) BRED BY RATHASKER STUD HAS FOUR WINS UNDER HIS BELT AND RIO NATAL(SIR PRANCEALOT-DANSALONG, RINGFORT STUD) ONLY THREE RUNS BUT TWO GOOD WINS IN PISA WILL HAVE THEIR SUPPORTERS.MY IDEA OF THE WINNER THOUGH IS TERRIBLE LAND ALREADY THE WINNER OF THE PREMIO ARCONTE IN PISA THIS YEAR.THE ANTONIO MARCIALIS TRAINED COLT WAS A DECENT TWO YEAR OLD AND HIS EFFORT IN SAN ROSSORE SUGGESTED QUITE A BIT OF IMPROVEMENT.

ROME ALSO STAGES A VERY NICE MILE CONDITIONS RACE FOR OLDER FILLIES WHICH BRINGS THREE OF THE FIRST FIVE IN LAST YEARS REGINA ELENA TOGETHER INCLUDING THE WINNER GRANATINA AND THE THIRD ROYAL WEDDING.CHIARO DI LUNA A DUEL LISTED WINNER,RAVEN’S ROSA AND THE ASHLING BURKE(WICKLOW) BRED HAVEN PARK(SIR PRANCEALOT-FIFTH WONDER)WILL ALSO HAVE THEIR SUPPOTERS.

IN MILAN THERE IS A DELIGHTFUL DUAL CARD THE HIGHLIGHT BEING THE LISTED PREMIO GIULIO CACCIA(22000) A HURDLE(SIEPI)OVER TWO MILES.AMONG THE RUNNERS IS ONE OF ITALY’S BEST STEEPLECHASERS NOTTI MAGICHE WITH FOURTEEN WINS AND ALMOST 290,000 EURO UNDER HIS BELT INCLUDING THE GRANDE STEEPLE-CHASE DI MILANO AND THE GRANDE STEEPLECHASE D’EUROPA IM MERANO BOTH GROUP 1 RACES.HIS LAST RUN WAS IN THE 2020 VERSION OF MILANS TOP CHASE WHERE HE FINISHED SECOND TO NORTHERLY WIND.HIS STABLE MATE POUR VOUS ET NOUS IS ALSO COMING BACK FROM CHASING LAST AUTUMN WHERE HE FINISHED OFF WINNING THE GROUP 3 PREMIO STAFFE D’ORO.DESPITE THE TRIP BEING TOO SHORT FOR THE JOSEF VANA TRAINED PAIR AND ROMANO RAFFAELE’S LIVE YOUR LIFE BEING A GROUP 1 WINNER OVER HURDLES I THINK NOTTI MAGICHE WILL SHOW HIS CLASS.THERE IS ALSO THE TRADITIONAL THREE YEAR OLD DEBUTANTS RACE OVER HURDLES THE PREMIO SALTI 2 MILES WITH A 20020 EURO PRIZEFUND

ON THE FLAT IN SAN SIRO THE HIGHLIGHT IS AN EXCELLENT OLDER FILLIES MILE WHERE THE 107 RATED ELIZA AGAIN WINNER OF THE PREMIO VERZIERI(G3) LAST YEAR MAKES HER REAPPEARANCE WHERE THE BIGGEST OPPOSTION WILL PROBABLY COME FROM THE ST LEGER RUNNER UP AGNES.OF THE IRISH BREDS THE MOST INTERESTING IS SIDNEY PARADE(AUSTRALIA-SO MANY SHOTS)A RECENT IMPORT FROM SWEDEN.
