Fantastic field for this year's G1 Audemars Piguet Q.E.II Cup in Hong Kong on Sunday. Presvis is obviously not going to be in the race. Because he just ran in the G1 Champions Mile at Sha Tin a few days ago. That decision based on the fact that Luca Cumani wanted Ryan Moore to ride Presvis in Hong Kong. And with the English 2000 and 1000 Guineas coming up on Saturday and Sunday, Moore was already committed to ride in the UK. I also read that Dubai World Cup winner, Victoire Pisa, is not going to be entered in the race either. But still, a fantastic field. I think the horse to beat will be the local Hong Kong star, Ambitious Dragon. Still unbeaten with back to back victories over course and distance over Lucky Nine in the G1 Hong Kong Classic Cup and over Xtension in the G1 Hong Kong Derby. Ironically, Xtension and Lucky Nine just finished 1-2 in the G1 Champions Mile a few days ago. I think the horse for Ambitious Dragon to beat will be the Mike De Kock trained race-mare, River Jetez. She was brilliant in 3 starts in Dubai. Culminating in a win in the Balanchine, and a great 2nd place finish to Presvis in the Duty Free. I also believe the Jebel Hatta winner, and Duty Free 3rd, Wigmore Hall has a shot on his Dubai form as well. I don't see Gitano Hernando being a player in this race. Primarily because I believe he's a much better horse on a synthetic surface than he is on turf. TJMO.
