Military prepares for Dubai attack after impressive Gold Cup win

John Moore was chasing a Dubai World Cup start for Military Attack and Akeed Mofeed was left chasing shadows as the match race of the season fizzed into a non-event in the Citibank Hong Kong Gold Cup (2,000m) on Sunday.

Momentum on Akeed Mofeed's side and gives him the edge against Military Attack

Akeed Mofeed is the horse with the momentum and that looks the only thing that gives him an edge on Military Attack in a fascinating Group One Citibank Hong Kong Gold Cup (2,000m) at Sha Tin.

Life's great mysteries - and why Zac doesn't ride for Size, Cruz, and now Moore

Take the mysteries of Stonehenge, the Bermuda Triangle, the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot combined and you don’t come close to the head-scratcher that is leading jockey Zac Purton essentially not riding for the three major stables in town.

John Moore hoping for that elusive overseas title

Seventeen years ago, John Moore led in the winner of today's Sha Tin feature, the ATV Cup. Nothing particularly surprising about that except Makarpura Star's victory at his first start for five months was the end of the beginning of a personal quest for Moore that has led him to the Singapore Airlines International Cup tomorrow and an overseas feature victory so close he can taste it.

Tommy Berry wins QE II Cup just hours after arriving in Hong Kong

Sha Tin hosted an Audemars Piguet QE II Cup to treasure on a day that had a little of everything from Tommy Berry making history in the main event, to the dodgem carnage behind him, to a post-race barrage by Jockey Club chief executive Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges against anabolic steroids in racing.

First overseas trip has Berry's juices flowing

Rather than donning a backpack and trekking across Europe, 21-year-old Berry will ride a leading hope in a pressure-filled international Group One, in front of a big crowd at an unfamiliar racecourse, just hours after he steps foot on foreign soil for the first time in his life.
