Legendary Australian trainer Bart Cummings is planning a Hong Kong return for exciting International Bowl winner Catalan Opening. The Group One winner gave Darren Beadman a farewell winner in front of his Hong Kong fans last December when he came blistering through in the 1,400-metre, $6.5 million Bowl to win like a champion. Within minutes of the emphatic success of Catalan Opening in the coveted Doncaster Handicap at Randwick in Sydney on Saturday, Cummings was happily reporting plans for a Hong Kong return. He said: 'Last December was the first time I had taken a horse to Hong Kong and Catalan Opening did very well. 'He has thrived since that Hong Kong trip and I think it made him a much more mature horse. 'I know he was beaten in two runs since he came back but they were both good efforts and that told here today when he won the Doncaster. 'He is racing better than ever and I am now really looking forward to taking him back to Hong Kong this December because that is the plan.' The man who has won the Melbourne Cup a record 10 times has not been a noted traveller of horses. 'I took a couple to the Japan Cup but that was all. I may have left it a bit late but I thoroughly enjoyed the Hong Kong experience and so did the horse. I have now every intention of taking him back and that will be the main plan from this point on,' said Cummings. On the same Randwick programme, Gold Guru won the Australian Jockey Club Derby in which Northern Drake finished third. Northern Drake is owned by the Hong Kong-based Domeland Syndicate and is trained outside Sydney by the former Macau trotting trainer-driver, Kenny Man. When Taipa switched to thoroughbred racing, Man went on a learning mission to New Zealand and returned to Taipa as assistant to Joe Barnes before branching out very successfully on his own. There were excuses for Northern Drake, who was taken very wide by Grant Cooksley and weakened over the concluding stages.
