Diana Poser on Sunday


Noble Heidi | Scoop Dyga

Sunday's G1 Henkel-Preis der Diana at Dusseldorf offers the usual puzzle, with Dr. Christoph Berglar's Amazing Grace (Ger) (Protectionist {Ger}), who was taken out of the G1 Prix de Diane due to her wide draw, possibly the standard-setter in the German Oaks. Successful in Hoppegarten's G2 Diana Trial May 23, the chestnut beat Noble Heidi (Fr) (Intello {Ger}) by 3/4 of a length on that occasion before finishing runner-up in the 11-furlong G3 Mehl-Mulhens-Trophy at Hamburg July 4.

First and second in this track's Listed Diana-Trial June 19, Palmas (Ger) (Lord of England {Ger}) and Normfliegerin (Ger) (Adlerflug {Ger}) are unexposed members of the cast, while Gestut Auenquelle's July 4 G3 Hamburger Stutenmeile winner Reine d'Amour (Ger) (Soldier Hollow {GB}) and Gestut Rottgen's Listed Mulheim Diana Trial scorer Alaskasonne (Fr) (Soldier Hollow {GB}) are other key protagonists.
