Duo bid for German glory; Racing.

BRITAIN will have two runners at Hoppegarten in Germany, in a Group Two contest won by Godolphin's Central Park last year.

Michael Hills rides his father Barry's Chester Vase winner Peshtigo, who was fifth in the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot last time out.

Willie Ryan is on John Gosden's Glamis, who has his first run since he finished sixth in the Vodafone Derby.

Local trainer Hans Blume has booked Jason Weaver to ride Italian Oaks winner Nagoya in a mile-and-a-half race which has also attracted German Derby winner Belenus.

THE Dubai World Cup will revert to a Saturday date next year.

It was announced today that the fifth running of the world's richest race will be staged on March 25, 2000.

The Emirates-backed Group One contest was run on a Saturday in 1998 when Silver Charm won but it was switched to a Sunday this year, when Almutawakel was successful.

Previous runnings were held on a Wednesday (in 1996) and a Thursday (in 1997, when the race was postponed from its original Saturday date due to waterlogging at Nad Al Sheba).

GAELIC STORM will bid to complete a Scandinavian hat-trick in the Listed Zawawi Baltic Cup at Jagersro in Sweden on Sunday.

The Mark Johnston-trained five-year-old, to be ridden by Darryll Holland, takes on six rivals in the six-furlong dirt race, with Sea Dane and Sharp Matt looking his main dangers.

Gaelic Storm gained victories in the Polar Sprint Cup and the Polar Million Cup at Ovrevoll in Norway on his last two starts.
