Ex-Australian Group One performers Chenier (now Enrich Delight), Shadow Hero and Eric The Eel (now Tourbillon Diamond) made their Hong Kong debuts on Sunday night.

Stepping out over 1400m in the last race at Sha Tin, it was a terrific start to the Hong Kong careers of all three runners, but none more so than Chenier who overcame trouble to win in dominant fashion.

Chenier, who broke his maiden by over five-lengths on debut at Sandown as a two-year-old, was seen as one of the best three-year-olds in the country after finishing behind Alligator Blood and Catalyst in the CS Hayes at Flemington before he was sold to Hong Kong.

Dual Group One winner formerly trained by Mark Newnham, Shadow Hero won the Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) and Randwick Guineas (1600m) before being transferred to Hong Kong and was extremely unlucky receiving no luck down the straight.

Former Queenslander out of the Stuart Kendrick stable Eric The Eel was the surprise packet of the race, drifting heavily in the market before unleashing an impressive run to finish third.
