Holy Roman Emperor’s Well Timed Takes the Diana

Well Timed | Galopponline.de

Sunday’s G1 Henkel-Preis der Diana at Dusseldorf was straightforward for the handicappers, with Stall Ullmann’s June 10 G2 Diana Trial winner Well Timed (Ger) (Holy Roman Emperor {Ire}) justifying 11-5 favouritism in this domestic Classic. Settled second early by Filip Minarik, the bay was joined by Night of England (GB) (Lord of England {Ger}) as she was committed at the top of the straight but quickly shook off that rival before asserting for a 1 3/4-length success, with Wonder of Lips (Ger) (Champs Elysees {GB}) 2 1/2 lengths behind in third.
