Japan launches five-pronged attack on Hong Kong Cup as HKIR attracts 24 overseas raiders

Quick Summary

Romantic Warrior was all class at Sha Tin yesterday leading home a one-two finish for Danny Shum in the G2 BOCHK Jockey Club Cup.

The Cup is the jewel in the crown of this year’s HK$110 million Longines Hong Kong International Races, which will attract a total of 24 overseas raiders – the most since the same number descended on the 2018 edition of the marquee meeting.

Panthalassa is one of four Group One winners among the Japanese Cup contingent, with Geoglyph the most recent to succeed at the top level in April’s Satsuki Sho (2,000m).
