Felix Coetzee will make an unexpected return to Sha Tin on Sunday as the jockey for Egyptian Ra in the Queen's Silver Jubilee Cup.

South African ace had a special affinity with Egyptian Ra, on whom he won the International Mile Trial (Gr 2) in November.

The 49-year-old with so many feature race successes and an unforgettable association with Silent Witness returned to Cape Town on December 21 after 16 years in Hong Kong.
