The Danny Shum-trained galloper had recorded three Group 1 wins before that international assignment, which included a dominant 4.5-length victory in the 2022 Hong Kong Cup and at $2.20 with Ladbrokes, he's favoured to go back-to-back in this feature.

Japanese visitor Prognosis ($5) sits on the second line of betting, a son of Deep Impact who was Group 1 placed last start behind Equinox, who is the best horse in the world.

A lightly raced five-year-old who has won six times and placed on four occasions from 11 starts, Prognosis has won a pair of Group 2 races over this distance in 2023.

He'll be joined by Rousham Park ($6), a Japanese-trained entire who arrives off his second black-type victory, with the four-year-old saluting in the Group 2 Sankei Sho All Comers at Nakayama on September 24.

That 2200m triumph followed a two-length Group 2 win in the Hakodate Kinen back in July.

Hong Kong Cup Winners

The Hong Kong Cup is one of four Group 1's contested at their International meeting, with the 2023 card to be run at Sha Tin on Sunday, December 10.

Worth HK$34,000,000, which equates to just over AUD 6.5 million, the Hong Kong Cup dates back to 1988 and along with gaining Group 1 status in 1999, the distance of the race was increased from 1800m to 2000m.

Local and international gallopers have taken out this event and in recent years, Hong Kong and Japan-based horses have dominated the Hong Kong Cup.

Normcore (2020), Loves Only You (2021) and Romantic Warrior (2022) have won the last three editions of the Hong Kong Cup.
