Priceys Previews of the Ballydoyle runners at Hong Kong on Sunday

6.00am Longines Hong Kong Vase (Group 1) -  1m 4f

Highland Reel - R Moore 

Globetrotting superstar who makes his final appearance on a racecourse before retiring to stud. Won this race in 2015 and every bit as good this year, winning the Coronation Stakes and the Prince of Wales' Stakes. Has to reverse the Breeders Cup form with Talismanic but wasn't far away that day. Sets the standard they all have to beat here.


7.50am Longines Hong Kong Mile (Group 1) - 1m

Lancaster Bomber - R Moore 

Yet to win at the highest level but has put up a string of high class efforts including when 2nd to the classy World Approval at Woodbine and Del Mar this autumn. Needs slightly more again here but seems to relish these foreign tests and should make the frame at a fair price.


Roly Poly - S Heffernan 

Established herself as one of the most talented fillies of her generation winning 3 Group 1's over this trip in 2017. No show last time out in the Breeders Cup Mile but had no chance from out the back. Todays test should suit better and no surprise were she to make her presence felt. 


8.30am Longines Hong Kong Cup (Group 1) - 1m 2f

Deauville - R Moore 

Group 1 winner in the Belmont Derby last term but just a Group 3 success this year at Chester. Cut little ice in the Woodbine Mile last time out but return to his Queen Anne Stakes and Arlington Million 3rd gives him place claims here.


War Decree - S Heffernan 

Looked a 2yo with serious potential but not quite reached those levels this year. Diamond Stakes win in September before being outclassed in the Breeders Cup Classic on his latest start. Needs to resume progress to have his say in this contest.
