Second career win for LOTTERBOV at Duesseldorf

Derby hopeful LOTTERBOV had Andrasch Starke in the saddle today for his second win in his fourth career start. Prepared by Markus Klug for owner Holger Renz, the PROTECTIONIST colt finished seventh at Gr.3 level two weeks ago where his performance was much better as the result suggests. Today's victory over 2200 metres against strong competition underpinned his team's assessment that he will continue on route to the Derby and be given a start in the Derby trial at the same venue in two weeks' time.
