MASTER French handler Patrick Biancone is aiming the most expensive horse he has ever brought to the territory at December's showpiece International Vase. Biancone beat off a number of other trainers when securing the Australian Jockey Club (AJC) Derby fourth, Ramleigh, for a figure well into seven figures. Ramleigh stayed the 2,400-metre trip well when beaten around two lengths by Ivory's Irish in the AJC Derby so he should relish the Vase's 2,400 metres. Prior to that the highly talented gelding was fourth to Danewin in the Group One Rosehill Guineas over 2,000 metres, also in Sydney. Biancone said: 'He's been here since July and while it is a race against time to get him ready for the International Vase, that is the race I'm aiming him at. 'He seems to have acclimatised well and I hope to beat the clock but he's also eligible for other big races like the Derby.' Ramleigh will make his eagerly awaited debut in Hong Kong in an 1,800-metre handicap on October 14. Biancone has then pencilled in an outing on November 5 before his main prep-race, an Open event over 2,400 metres on November 18 which will be the main International Vase trial for local horses. Biancone, second to John Moore in the trainer standings last season with a healthy 47 winners, has a stable full of talent for the campaign ahead. His classy six-time winner Bumper Star is being aimed at the Sha Tin Trophy, followed by the Stewards' Cup and then a crack at the International Bowl. Former Derby winner Helene Star, nursed back to his brilliant best when taking the Hermes Cup last May, is being trained specifically for the first leg of the sprint Triple Crown and then the International Bowl. Biancone is aiming to keep a firm grip on the Hermes Cup by setting his former star griffin You Bet for the prestigious event. You Bet missed most of last season due to leg problems but Biancone stressed: 'He's is very well.'
