Fukunaga eyes feature double

Japanese jockey Yuichi Fukunaga will be out to pull off a rare feature double on Sunningdale at Nakayama on Sunday and fend off the challenge of Hong Kong's Cape Of Good Hope in the $12 million Sprinters' Stakes.

Eishin Preston's partner, Fukunaga rides Sunningdale - winner of Japan's other big 1,200 metre event, the Takamatsunomiya Kinen, last March.
