Adlerflug Sophomores Face Off in Munich Showpiece

Manuela de Vega |

Gestut Auenquelle's G1 Deutsches Derby runner-up Torquator Tasso (Ger) (Adlerflug {Ger}) and Christoph Holschbach and Thomas Krauth's Derby sixth Dicaprio (Ger) Adlerflug {Ger}) lock horns for a third time in Sunday's G1 Allianz Grosser Preis von Bayern at Munich, Germany's penultimate pattern race of the year. The pair head the betting for the 12-furlong stamina test and were separated by a whisker when the former emerged victorious in Hoppegarten's Oct. 3 G1 Grosser Preis von Berlin last time.

A solid domestic defence also features sophomore distaffers Tabera (GB) (Gleneagles {Ire}), who snagged last month's G3 Preis der Deutschen Einheit at Hoppegarten, and Stefan Hahne's G3 Grosser Preis der Mehl-Mulhens-Stiftung runner-up Sunny Queen (Ger) (Camelot {GB}). Stall Dusselforf Fighters' Walderbe (Ger) (Maxios {GB}), who annexed Rome's Oct. 25 G2 Gran Premio Del Jockey Club in his most recent start, adds another level of resistance.

Britain's four-strong challenge includes Charlie Appleby representative Secret Advisor (Fr) (Dubawi {Ire}), who ran second in Newmarket's June 7 Listed Buckhounds S. last time, and the Ralph Beckett-trained duo Manuela de Vega (Ire) (Lope de Vega {Ire}) and Antonia de Vega (Ire) (Lope de Vega {Ire}). Both have won twice since running second and fourth, respectively, in last year's renewal.
