Yoshito Yahagi savoured redemption and Vincent Ho jubilated in the best day of his burgeoning career after the veteran Japanese trainer and the young Hong Kong jockey combined with devastating effect as Loves Only You triumphed in the HK$25 million G1 FWD QEII Cup (2000m) at Sha Tin on Sunday (25 April).

Confirming Japan’s towering status as an international staying powerhouse, Loves Only You crowned a stunning domination of the race by the visitors with Glory Vase, Daring Tact and Kiseki filling the minor placings.

Exultant (fifth), the 2020 winner, led home Hong Kong’s brigade ahead of Glorious Dragon (sixth) and Time Warp (seventh).

Globe-trotting Yahagi has exulted in victories in Dubai and Australia but, until today, the flamboyant handler had never triumphed in Hong Kong.

All of that changed with a precision ride from Ho as the 30-year-old became the first home-grown jockey in history to ride two Group 1 winners in a day at Sha Tin.

“I can’t describe it,” Ho said, reacting to a pair of G1 successes in the space of 40 minutes.

“The horse (Loves Only You) is in form, for sure. She was very kind until the 800 (metre mark) then sort of hit a flat spot and I gave her two shakes just to teach her a little bit and then I asked her again and she responded very well through the line.

“I don’t dare to look back until the finish line but she was amazing. I’m grateful that the Japanese connections asked me to ride her.

“The QEII Cup is one of my dream goals as well as the Derby and the December internationals, a QEII win means a lot.

“It’s amazing today with Golden Sixty and Loves Only You. It’s definitely one of the highlights, I’ll enjoy it for sure.”

Ho said he had not been burdened with instructions from Yahagi, who watched the race from Japan.

“Mr Yahagi gave me free rein to just let me do whatever because he knew the horse was well and once she’s travelling well with her own pace, she will perform,” Ho said.

“That’s my first win on a Japanese-trained horse in Hong Kong but let’s hope one day in the summer I can go to Japan to ride, that would be great experience for me. I’ve still got a lot to learn and riding in different countries definitely helps.”

Yahagi’s assistant trainer Yusaku Oka hinted at how much it meant to the stable to avenge Cox Plate winner Lys Gracieux defeat in Hong Kong in 2019.

“We came here two years ago with Lys Gracieux and unfortunately we didn’t win, so we did revenge for this race, this time so that makes me very happy.

“Thank you very much support for Dubai Racing Club and Hong Kong Jockey Club. This is a very difficult situation and we had great support. Humans have a hard situation with coronavirus, but also horses, too.

“When she travelled from Dubai to Hong Kong and I saw the horse in Hong Kong and I saw her body looked really good. I wasn’t much worried about her preparation. She was in great order.

“Vincent Ho rode her really, really well.”

Joining Eishin Preston (2002 & 2003), Rulership (2012), Neorealism (2017) and Win Bright (2019), Loves Only You – a daughter of Deep Impact – enhanced Japan’s success in the spring feature.

Oka revealed the mare might return to Hong Kong in December.

“We’ll see how she gets back to Japan and we’ll talk with the trainers and owners. We will then make the decision on the future,” he said. “There is a big option (to come back) because she won here in Hong Kong this year.”

Daring Tact’s jockey Kohei Matsuyama said: “She gave us a good run as usual. I know she was very heavily supported so the first thing I have to say is that I’m sorry.

“For the excuse, I cannot find an appropriate one for her today. The first two that came ahead of her ran a great race.”

Karis Teetan spoke of runner-up Glory Vase: “He ran great, I was following Vincent (Ho) and he pinched the race on the home turn,” while Chad Schofield said Kiseki tried hard.

Zac Purton said Exultant had again given his best: “He was honest, he ran his usual race – he gave everything.”

Legendary Japanese trainer puts Danon Smash on a par with champion Lord Kanaloa23 Apr 2021

Takayuki Yasuda has sounded an ominous warning ahead of Sunday’s (25 April) HK$18 million G1 Chairman’s Sprint Prize (1200m) by declaring Danon Smash the equal of superstar Lord Kanaloa, the best horse the revered Japanese trainer has handled in a long, distinguished career.

Delighted by Danon Smash’s draw of barrier five for Sunday’s dash, Yasuda said the speedster’s triumph in last December’s G1 LONGINES Hong Kong Sprint (1200m) from gate 14 formed the catalyst for parallels to Lord Kanaloa – a six-time G1 winner and also the sire of Danon Smash.

“Last December I honestly thought Danon Smash was not equal to the level of Lord Kanaloa at that stage, but after winning that race, he improved a lot,” Yasuda said. “I think Danon Smash has reached the same point as Lord Kanaloa now.

“Two years earlier (2019), Danon Smash came to Hong Kong but was defeated (when eighth behind Beat The Clock in the G1 LONGINES Hong Kong Sprint) and he was disappointing. Last December, he won and it was a pleasant moment for me so I would like another strong performance on Champions Day.

“He is now already six-years-old, he has matured and improved significantly in the latter part of his career, I am really excited for the race this weekend.”

With more than 860 wins, including 18 G1 spoils, Yasuda is an immensely respected figure not given to hyperbole – a conservative disposition which gives added clout to the comparison of his current and former charges.

With a last start victory in the G1 Takamatsunomiya Kinen (1200m) at Chukyo Racecourse on 28 March, Danon Smash is still to amass a portfolio to match that of Lord Kanaloa as Yasuda indicated the bay could be set for more Hong Kong sorties.

“Just after he won the Hong Kong Sprint last December, we decided to come to Hong Kong in April,” Yasuda said. “After the Chairman’s Sprint Prize, Danon Smash will take a rest. The next target would be the Sprinters Stakes then after that, I want to come to Hong Kong again for the international races.”

Danon Smash is the sole international raider – and set to be the ruling favourite – for Sunday’s 1200m dash, where the performances of Wellington (barrier three), Sky Field (one), Stronger (eight), surprise G2 Sprint Cup (1200m) winner Amazing Star (four) and Jolly Banner (11) will provide a gauge into the strength of local sprint ranks.

Joao Moreira, who will ride Danon Smash, was pleasantly surprised by Yasuda’s generous comparison with Lord Kanaloa.

“Lord Kanaloa is the best sprinter I have seen turn up here in Hong Kong, so I am very surprised Mr Yasuda has put Danon Smash on his level but I am very pleased to be riding him,” the Brazilian said.

“In my opinion, gate five is extremely good, he will have the chance to place himself wherever he wants to.

“It is a tricky race, there are some fast horses inside and on the outside.

“I am very, very happy with the gate. Any gate this time was going to be better than 14 last time, so I believe he will find it much easier to place himself in the race this time.

“That was a very impressive win, in my opinion. It was a stronger race than what we have on the weekend. I am not expecting him to perform any different, he looks in as good a form, maybe even better.

“Having the chance to ride such a good horse, I am very, very pleased with that.

“It is an open field, there isn’t one that stands out. If there is one, Danon Smash is the one, the locals will find it very hard to beat him, based on his form and his ability. He will find it a bit easier to get himself placed in the race.

“Jolly Banner has to be respected but the main one is Wellington who has proven himself to be a good horse.”

Golden Sixty will jump from gate five against five rivals in the HK$20 million G1 FWD Champions Mile (1600m), including defending champion Southern Legend (four), Ka Ying Star (six), Mighty Giant (one), More Than This (three) and Healthy Happy (two).

Karis Teetan expects Caspar Fownes’ Southern Legend to provide stiff opposition for Golden Sixty as Hong Kong’s top-rated galloper chases a 17th victory from 18 starts, a 14th win in succession and a fourth G1 in a row.

“It’s only a small field and with luck in running, I believe Southern Legend can run very well again,” the Mauritian said. “He always gives his best.”

Tony Cruz concedes hopes of Exultant posting successive wins in the HK$25 million G1 FWD QEII Cup (2000m) are clearly compromised by the presence of a quartet of high-class Japanese raiders – Daring Tact (one), Kiseki (three), Loves Only You (five) and Glory Vase (seven).

“The Japanese look very strong,” Cruz said as he assessed the chances of Exultant (two) and Time Warp (four). “Exultant is in tip-top form and Time Warp will run very well, but the Japanese are very impressive.”

Francis Lui’s Glorious Dragon, who will be ridden by Matthew Poon, will depart from gate six.

FWD Champions Day features three Group 1 races at Sha Tin, the HK$25 million FWD QEII Cup (2000m), the HK$20 million FWD Champions Mile (1600m) and the HK$18 million Chairman’s Sprint Prize (1200m).

Loves Only You pleases Vincent Ho ahead of FWD QEII Cup tilt22 Apr 2021

Vincent Ho had his first feel of 2019 G1 Japanese Oaks (2400m) winner Loves Only You this morning (Monday, 19 April) as he partnered the mare through her morning canter on the Sha Tin dirt ahead of Sunday’s (25 April) HK$25 million G1 FWD QEII Cup (2000m).

Arriving in Hong Kong off the back of a last-start third to Mishriff in the G1 Dubai Sheema Classic (2410m) at Meydan Racecourse, the Deep Impact mare stepped out of quarantine for her third outing but for the first time with jockey Vincent Ho in the plate, pleasing the 30-year-old as she clocked 1m 03.70s (34.0s, 29.7s) for her 800m canter.

“It went very well, it was just a very relaxed canter for her and I think she has settled in very well, she looks around and she’s very happy,” Ho said.

“Once she gets on the track she knows her job – she’s very concentrated in her work and then she was very quiet when we backed down the track,” he added.

A five-time winner from 12 starts including once at G1 level, the five-year-old’s most recent win came in the G2 Kyoto Kinen (2200m) at Hanshin Racecourse two starts ago before campaigning for a close-up third in Dubai at her first foray abroad, while her compatriot Chrono Genesis, filled second in that same race.

“You can tell she knows what to do, when she’s on the track she is very focused,” Ho said.

“It was just easy work, the instructions were to let her relax and canter,” the jockey said.

The bay has contested 2000m twice across her career – both times at Hanshin Racecourse, winning the 2019 Listed Wasurenagusa Sho before finishing second in the G3 Naruo Kinen, four starts later.

“Previously, if a jockey jumps on and gallops her she can go quite fast because she has a big stride, so they just wanted to make sure it was an easy canter this morning because they’ve done most of the work in Dubai.

“When she came here her team said they won’t need to do too much – just maintain her condition and she has settled in well, she is eating well and she is a traveler so it’s fine,” Ho said.

Under the care of Yoshito Yahagi, the mare forms a four-pronged Japanese assault alongside Daring Tact, Glory Vase and Kiseki in the FWD QEII Cup, while the home team defence features Exultant, Time Warp, Furore and Glorious Dragon.

Ho, with 44 wins through the current Hong Kong racing season, bids for a second G1 FWD Champions Mile success after Southern Legend last year when he partners Golden Sixty in the HK$20 million contest.

Ho also unites with Stronger in the HK$18 million G1 Chairman’s Sprint Prize (1200m) after finishing second atop the chestnut earlier this month in the G2 Sprint Cup (1200m).

Haruki Sugiyama confident Daring Tact is poised to rebound in FWD QEII Cup22 Apr 2021

Unfazed by the memories of successive defeats, trainer Haruki Sugiyama is adamant Daring Tact can reproduce the stunning form which elevated the mercurial Japanese filly to champion status as she prepares to tackle the G1 FWD QEII Cup (2000m) at Sha Tin on Sunday (25 April).

Vanquished by Almond Eye and Contrail in the G1 Japan Cup (2400m) on 29 November, Daring Tact resumed with a fast-closing second – as a 1.4 favourite – behind Gibeon in the G2 Kinko Sho (2000m) on 14 March.

Sugiyama’s confidence on an imminent return to the winners’ circle against world-class opposition on Sunday is founded in the four-year-old’s growing maturity.

“Comparing between the Kinko Sho and the Japan Cup, she was much more settled and relaxed at the parade ring and the starting gate, so I saw some sort of improvement with her temperament, which I am happy with,” Sugiyama said.

“The most important thing is how she performs – if she shows the top of her ability this weekend, I am – as well as my team – confident that she is the best horse in the field.

“But I know all the other runners in this kind of race are tough to beat so I am just trying to concentrate on how we can improve her before this weekend.”

Daring Tact cantered a lap on the dirt track on Tuesday morning (20 April) under regular jockey Kohei Matsuyama, who Sugiyama views as a calming influence on the occasionally volatile filly.

“Last start, the excuse was mostly the ground condition. I am 100 percent confident Matsuyama knows this horse better than any other rider in the world. It is a clear and easy decision to put Matsuyama on her in this race,” Sugiyama said.

“He is keeping good harmony with the filly – so if I relax and the filly relaxes, probably the best result will come to us. Pace at the moment is not a great concern for me.”

“My filly is special in her ability. She is a very good filly to train.”

With five straight wins at the start of her career, Daring Tact became the first horse to remain unbeaten en route to her Japanese Fillies’ Triple Crown success with victories in the Oka Sho (1600m), Yushun Himba (2400m) and Shuka Sho (2000m) – all at G1 level.

Sugiyama is happy with the way Daring Tact has settled in at Sha Tin as she prepares to cross swords with fellow Japanese contenders Loves Only You, Glory Vase and Kiseki as well as Hong Kong’s Exultant, Time Warp, Furore and Glorious Dragon.

“The first two or three days because the environment was new for her, she was not quite relaxed at all times and same goes with the track also so we gave her rest on Monday but this morning (Tuesday, 20 April) Matsuyama brought her out and rode her and she was relaxed – I am very happy with her.”

Matsuyama, the only Japanese jockey to feature at FWD Champions Day this year, places little credence in the Kinko Sho defeat.

“She had excuses that day, ground conditions were a bit unusual,” he said. “She is a great filly, an outstanding horse – she cannot compare with anyone else.”

Yoshito Yahagi, who has successfully blazed a trail globally with outstanding gallopers such as Lys Gracieux (2019 G1 W.S. Cox Plate, 2040m) and Real Steel (2016 G1 Dubai Turf, 1800m), as well as Contrail in Japan, is seeking his first Hong Kong win with Loves Only You.

“Lys Gracieux won in Australia and Japan (both at G1 level), but unfortunately she didn’t win in Hong Kong so this is kind of for me revenge in Hong Kong,” Yahagi laughed.

“Four Japanese horses are really competitive, high-level horses. All of these horses are great horses. My horse did really well in Dubai (running third to Mishriff in the G1 Dubai Sheema Classic, 2410m) and I believe she is really good enough against these horses.”

One of the most accomplished – and flamboyant – figures in world racing, Yahagi explained the choice of Vincent Ho as the five-year-old mare’s rider.

“It’s very difficult because of the Coronavirus to bring a Japanese jockey to Hong Kong so we selected a jockey from Hong Kong and I believe Vincent Ho has the strongest passion of any jockey at the moment in Hong Kong,” he said.

Ho, who also partners Golden Sixty in the G1 FWD Champions Mile (1600m) and Stronger in the G1 Chairman’s Sprint Prize (1200m), is excited at the prospect of riding Loves Only You.

“I can’t wait for Sunday to come. She’s settled in really well, everything is good. Once she gets on the track, she is really concentrated which shows how professional she is,” he said.

“Everything is smooth and nice. I’m really happy with how she is at the moment.

“She performed really well in the Dubai Sheema Classic. She ran really close to Mishriff, who is one of the exceptional horses in the world. She’s going to be really competitive here because she’s also settled really well here.”

Glory Vase in peak form ahead of G1 FWD QEII Cup tilt22 Apr 2021

Tomohito Ozeki is confident Glory Vase can reprise a winning Hong Kong habit and add to Japan’s imposing record in the HK$25 million G1 FWD QEII Cup (2000m) at Sha Tin on Sunday (25 April).

Bidding to join Eishin Preston (2002 & 2003), Rulership (2012), Neorealism (2017) and Win Bright (2019) on the prestige contest’s honour roll, Glory Vase’s success in the 2019 G1 LONGINES Hong Kong Vase (2400m) remains a significant reminder of the six-year-old’s capacity to travel and succeed.

Ozeki is delighted with the son of Deep Impact’s condition since his arrival at Sha Tin last week and expects another stellar performance on Sunday.

“The horse is in great condition. It’s the second time we’ve come to Hong Kong and it’s made a difference to how he’s travelled and settled in. He’s very relaxed at the moment,” Ozeki said.

“He lost less condition in the travel than he did last time, so he’s a happy horse and everything is on track.”

Ozeki said the triumphant 2019 Vase foray was a prime factor in returning to Hong Kong where, at the weekend, Glory Vase will square off against the cream of Japanese staying ranks in a clash with Daring Tact, Kiseki and Loves Only You as well as reigning Hong Kong Horse of the Year Exultant, Glorious Dragon and Time Warp.

Typically, Ozeki remains quietly confident after Glory Vase’s last start fourth in the G2 Kinko Sho (2000m) behind Daring Tact (second) but ahead of Kiseki (fifth) on 14 March.

“I have enormous respect for the quality of the other horses in the race. I’m very confident in my own horse that he has what it takes to get a win. So, I’m confident of running well against the other horses and confident of getting a result,” Ozeki said.

“A lot of his runs have been over further distances, two starts back, he ran very well in a high-paced Japan Cup over 2400 metres. Even though it was a strong pace in that race, he was able to get into a relatively good position – a forward position – and run well (finishing fifth behind Almond Eye, Contrail and Daring Tact).

“Since then, last start was the first time over 2000 metres for a while. The track condition wasn’t fantastic that day. They had rain and that made it unsuitable for the horse, but we were still very happy with the run.

“So, off the back of that last-start 2000 metres race, the thoughts were there to aim for this race. He’s quite comfortable with this trip.”

The veteran of just 14 starts, Glory Vase has been sparingly raced simply because decent breaks between runs suit the horse.

“He may not be the most robust horse out there but by no means has he had any serious issues or anything like that,” Ozeki said.

“His runs are spaced and we’re in constant discussions with connections about finding the best races to suit him and to target those races accordingly.

“He is quite a young six-year-old, he’s shown growth and improvement over the last two years so the horse is in very good condition and we’ve been focusing on the races best suited to him.”

Karis Teetan will partner Glory Vase on Thursday morning (22 April) in a familiarisation exercise.

The Mauritian is excited to accompany a horse of such impressive calibre.

“I can’t wait for the race. Of course, his win in the (2019 LONGINES) Vase was very impressive when he came here. He looks magnificent. I’m really excited,” Teetan said.

“You have to respect Japanese horses when they travel. When they travel to Hong Kong, they have been super strong in the last couple of years.

“It’s always been a dream for me that when the Japanese horses come to Hong Kong to get on one of them because I know they will be very competitive here because on their home ground they are so strong.

“They produce so many great horses. This is a great opportunity for me.”

Japan enters strong contingent for FWD Champions Day25 Mar 2021

Japan’s elite and Hong Kong’s brilliant best are among the list of 77 horses holding entries for FWD Champions Day at Sha Tin on Sunday, 25 April, 2021.

FWD Champions Day features three world class Group 1 races, the HK$25 million FWD Queen Elizabeth II Cup (2000m), the HK$20 million FWD Champions Mile (1600m), and the HK$18 million Chairman’s Sprint Prize (1200m). A total of 19 G1 winners are among this year’s exciting entries.

Japanese filly Daring Tact tops the billing of the international entrants after becoming only the sixth Japanese Fillies’ Triple Crown winner, and the first undefeated last year, and in this year’s FWD QEII Cup she could face the brilliant Golden Sixty as well as the might of last year’s triumphant of the race Exultant, while fellow Japanese entrants Chrono Genesis, Loves Only You and Glory Vase – tear away winner of the 2019 G1 LONGINES Hong Kong Vase (2400m) – all could feature.

Golden Sixty, Hong Kong’s new hero, is also entered for the FWD Champions Mile and he could be pitted against Salios and crack miler Indy Champ, who finished a luckless seventh in the 2019 G1 LONGINES Hong Kong Mile. Also entered is two-time G1 winner Waikuku, as well as last year’s victor Southern Legend, who narrowly edged Beauty Generation in a thrilling renewal, while recent 2021 BMW Hong Kong Derby hero Sky Darci is also entered.

Danon Smash, winner of the 2020 G1 LONGINES Hong Kong Sprint (1200m) is entered to return to Hong Kong to contest the Chairman’s Sprint Prize (1200m), and could square off with recent G1 Centenary Sprint Cup (1200m) winner Hot King Prawn and fellow speedster Classique Legend, last year’s winner of The Everest, while precocious young talents Wellington, Sky Field and Winning Dreamer all could feature.

Mr. Andrew Harding, Executive Director, Racing, at the Hong Kong Jockey Club, said: “It is pleasing to see the volume of nominations but more important than the numbers is the quality and we are delighted that the calibre of entries is high, featuring Daring Tact, a brilliant athlete and winner of Japan’s Fillies’ Triple Crown and fellow three-time Group 1 winner Chrono Genesis, and not to mention the best from Hong Kong as well as some very talented French contenders and a quartet of entrants from Great Britain.”

“We are fortunate that Hong Kong racing has been able to continue uninterrupted through the global pandemic with stringent safeguards in place and we are delighted that horsemen from leading racing jurisdictions have shown faith and trust enough in our dedication to health, safety and security to nominate their stable stars to our three Group 1 races at Sha Tin on FWD Champions Day. That says much for the attraction of Hong Kong racing and all the positive things it stands for in the world of sport.”

“Following on from the success of the Hong Kong International Races we are continuing to work closely with the Hong Kong government on arrangements that would facilitate an international presence at one of our primary events with the goal of once again putting on a day of world-class sport.”


Daring Tact, third in last year’s G1 Japan Cup (2400m), could bring Almond Eye form to Hong Kong and take on Golden Sixty and Exultant, while the latter will bid to become the second back-to-back winner since the race was opened to international competition in 1995, following Eishin Preston in 2002 and 2003.

The brilliant four-year-old, Daring Tact, is one of 36 entrants for the 10 furlong feature and one of 11 from the Land of the Rising Sun. The powerful Japanese cohort also includes three-time G1 winner Chrono Genesis who fought gamely to claim December’s G1 Arima Kinen (2500m) at Nakayama, as well as 2019 G1 LONGINES Hong Kong Vase (2400m) winner Glory Vase, a comfortable victor of December’s feature that year, the gifted son of Deep Impact could return to a happy hunting ground at Sha Tin.

Japan’s team could also have Loves Only You, winner of the 2019 G1 Yushun Himba (2400m), as well as 2012 QEII Cup winner Rulership’s enigmatic son, Kiseki, winner of the 2017 G1 Kikuka Sho (3000m) and is a five-time placegetter at the top-level.

Hong Kong’s Exultant is a five-time G1 winner, while 2019 BMW Hong Kong Derby victor Furore could join him along with stablemate to the duo, Time Warp. A strong crop of talented four-year-old’s may also have their chances at QEII Cup glory, as Excellent Proposal, Berlin Tango, Panfield, Russian Emperor, Silver Express, Tourbillon Diamond and dual Australian G1 winner Shadow Hero all feature.

A sole entrant from Great Britain comes in the form of Felix, a six-time winner from 14 starts who placed at G3 level last time out.

FWD Champions Mile

Golden Sixty swept all before him last season which culminated in Hong Kong Derby glory and the trend has continued this term with six unbeaten runs and a win streak that stands at 13. He boasts three Group 1 scores – last year’s LONGINES Hong Kong Mile and this year’s Stewards’ Cup (1600m) and Citi Hong Kong Gold Cup (2000m).

Indy Champ and Salios represent a strong Japanese contingent against the brilliant son of Medaglia d’Oro. The former was luckless when joint favourite with Beauty Generation in the 2019 G1 LONGINES Hong Kong Mile, finishing seventh and since returned to Japan for a win at G2 level and two consecutive G1 placings behind Gran Alegria, each at the mile. The latter, Salios, was a smart winner of the 2019 G1 Asahi Hai Futurity Stakes (1600m) as a two-year-old.

Included from Hong Kong also is Southern Legend, last year’s winner of the race, as well as two-time G1 winner Waikuku who recently scored a commanding win in February’s G1 Queen’s Silver Jubilee Cup (1400m).

The consistent Ka Ying Star could feature, as could Hong Kong Classic Cup winner Healthy Happy, while last Sunday’s BMW Hong Kong Derby victor Sky Darci also holds an entry.

Andre Fabre, a dominant force in France, has entered the lightly raced Duhail, a smart son of Lope De Vega.

Last-start G2 Zabeel Mile midfield finisher Epic Hero holds an entry for trainer Simon Crisford from Great Britain, as does My Oberon from the William Haggas yard to round out the 25-strong list of possibilities.

Chairman’s Sprint Prize

After claiming his first G1 crown in January’s Centenary Sprint Cup (1200m), Hot King Prawn is on track to contend for another but his opposition won’t be short of talent. Fellow grey Classique Legend, winner of last year’s The Everest (1200m) when defeating seven individual G1 winners is set to feature, as is last year’s Hong Kong Sprint victor Danon Smash, while fellow Japanese A Will A Way and Lauda Sion are also entered.

Wellington, who equalled Sacred Kingdom’s Class 1 1200m record at Sha Tin last Saturday (13 March), clocking 1m 07.80s is entered to run, as are fellow youngsters on the rise Sky Field and Winning Dreamer, a winner of his first six consecutive starts.

A sole entrant from Great Britain comes in the form of the Simon Crisford-trained A’Ali, a four-year-old colt who boast 4 G2 successes and form behind Earthlight, Battaash and Equilateral.

Hong Kong’s entries – among the 26 in total – also feature 2019 G2 Sprint Cup (1200m) winner Rattan, 2020 G2 Premier Bowl Handicap (1200m) winner Wishful Thinker, 2020 G2 Sprint Cup (1200m) winner Voyage Warrior as well as G3 victors Computer Patch, Big Party and Jolly Banner.
