Lizzy Jelfs gives Australian galloper Niconero a workout on the all-weather track at Sha Tin yesterday morning. The experienced horsewoman is here looking after the Champions Mile contender for trainer David Hayes.

Niconero will be ridden in Sunday's race by former club jockey Craig Williams, who is odds on to be the champion jockey in Melbourne in his first season after returning from Hong Kong.
