Munich Tomorrow: Top German Derby hopes go on trial.

MUNICH tomorrow stages the most significant German Derby trial run so far this season in the shape of the Group 2 Grosser Mller Brot-Preis, writes David Conolly-Smith.

With two unbeaten Andreas Schtz-trained colts, Samum and Huambo, taking on the stout stayer Pappus and the unexposed Well Made in the 10-furlong contest, the ante-post market for the Classic, run at Hamburg on July 2, is sure to see a shake-up.

Neither Samum nor Huambo has raced beyond a mile, but champion jockey Andrasch Starke has chosen the former.

Pappus, who ran on well when beaten a head in a Listed event over this course and distance three weeks ago, will be out to exploit any stamina deficiencies in the Schtz pair, while Hans Blume's Well Made, who like Samum holds an entry in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, was a late withdrawal from an easier race at Hanover last Sunday, having reportedly received a knock in his horsebox beforehand.
