139th Derby Italiano at Capanelle

This is G2 and over 2200m and as many of the Italian races has often gone to a raider.

Henk Grewe has brought Ardakan, a son of Reliable Man, with Clement Lecoeuvre booked for the ride.

Best of the locals may be Arrival, by Australia, for A. Botti and D. Vargiu.

Lohengrin is an interesting runner – he's by Japanese sire Albert Dock who is by Deep Impact, and not to be confused with the Japanese runner Lohengrin who was by Singspiel.

He's trained by F. Camici and will be ridden by Germana Marcello.
