McEvoy lands Italian job

Kerrin McEvoy guided Saddex to a narrow success in the Premio Presidente Della Repubblica at the Capannelle in Rome today.

The Peter Rau-trained five-year-old was sixth in last year's Prix de l'Arc De Triomphe and was last seen chasing home the smart Duke Of Marmalade in the Prix Ganay at Longchamp.

He finished a head in front of the Michael Jarvis-trained Pressing under Neil Callan, who won a Group One at this venue on his previous outing and was a narrow second in this race 12 months ago.

The only other British raider was Clive Brittain's well-travelled Hattan but he failed to make and impact and was well held in seventh.
