Sporting the famed Gestut Rottgen silks in Cologne's Preis vom Weidenpescher Park on Sunday, Naila (Fr) (Adlerflug {Ger}) overpowered her peers to become the latest German TDN Rising Star. Sent off the 9-10 favourite for the 1850-metre maiden, the Markus Klug-trained chestnut broke well from the widest stall to track the leading duo throughout the early stages. Taking control approaching the two-furlong marker, she surged clear to win unchallenged by 10 lengths with Andrasch Starke easing down.

The winner is the last known foal out of the listed-winning dam Naomia (Ger) (Monsun {Ger}), who has produced the G3 Zukunftsrennen scorer Narella (Ire) (Reliable Man {GB}). She is a daughter of the G1 Oaks d'Italia heroine Nagoya (Ger) (Goofalik), who is also the second dam of Nepal (Ger) (Kallisto {Ger}) who also captured that Milan Classic when it was staged as a group 2 in 2016.
