SASSARI. This afternoon the autumn meeting of gallop races kicks off at the Sassari racecourse. A session that promises to be intense after the summer debacle that led to the suspension of racing. The forced stop was imposed by the ministerial commission after the inspection of the Turritano route, which was deemed unfit for use at that time.
The commission gave the green light two days ago by promoting the track with flying colors, since the numerous critical issues related to the fund have been resolved. This is thanks to the maintenance interventions of the Sassari horse racing company.
Mipaaf has granted the recovery of the summer days which will be added to those scheduled for autumn, for a calendar structured on 7 days: it will run every 6 days until November 1st and will end on Saturday 6th.
Meanwhile, today we start: first race at 15.25, mandatory green pass and a maximum limit of 500 spectators. The first to take to the track will be the gentlemen, working on 2000 meters: Akenta De L’Alguer is the horse to beat. Offsider, Red Cross and Tenuta the alternatives. It continues with the Arab fund of 3 years: Chiocciola and Chi habbe are close in the last, Calisto is a good idea, Consuelo for the surprise. Maiden for 3-year-old English cross-country skiing on 2000 meters: uncertain race, the recent form indicates Confidence, badly beaten in the last sortie. To keep an eye on Castellana and Cathmandu Day.
Conditioning for thoroughbreds of 3 years and over on 1000 meters: it must go straight to Twilight Eclipse, specialist in the dry kilometer. The opposition is represented by the Sound System, the protagonist with an arrow on the track and on the distance. Patita De L’Alguer and Pintor Fisich are worth the full mention, Bice remains very poisonous. Maiden for 2 year old thoroughbreds on 1500 meters: after 4th place in the Criterium Sardo, Thor De Sa Matta is the logical favorite of the race. Watch out for the Colmbiana and Cresta dell’Onda workmates, waiting in progress. The team is in good shape and Priol De L’Alguer should be considered regardless.
The afternoon ends with a 3-year-old claim for English cross-country skiing on 1500 meters: full cages but with different certainties, which are oriented on the quartet composed of Communique, Cicala, Cucciola Per Toni and Cheremule, all very close to victory. But possible surprises at interesting odds are not excluded.
