Pressing repels late surge.

Byline: David Conolly-Smith, ,

REPORT: GERMANY Grosser Dallmayr-Preis Bayerisches Zuchtrennen G1 Munich 1m2f, 3yo+

THE much-travelled Pressing (Michael Jarvis/Neil Callan) recorded the second Group 1 victory of his globetrotting career yesterday when the six-year-old just held the late thrust of leading domestic hope Precious Boy in the Grosser Dallmayr-Preis, writes David Conolly-Smith.

Callan looked to have the race sewn up on the 2-1 favourite when hitting the front two furlongs out.

There was some drama, though, as Pressing hung left across Frankie Dettori's mount Trincot 150 yards from home, prompting a stewards' inquiry.

Although the Godolphin horse suffered interference, he already appeared held at the time and no action was taken.

Last year's German Guineas winner Precious Boy finished well from the rear to get within threequarters of a length of a tiring Pressing, but Gary Tanaka's former Italian-trained son of Soviet Star just held on.

Pressing's previous Group 1 success came under Callan in the Premio Roma at the Capannelle in 2007.
