First impressions are so often the right ones. Last year Bowl and Vase winners Catalan Opening and Luso stood out amongst the international challengers, this time round it is Toledo. The Australian entry for the 1,400-metre International Bowl arrives with arguably better credentials than Catalan Opening and trainer Russell Cameron could hardly having him looking or moving better. Toledo enjoyed light exercise on Monday morning when he appeared a most athletic sort, oozing quality as he went round the main work track. Yesterday the South Australian handler put a light 800-metre piece into him under compatriot Patrick Payne (pictured) who is another in the mould of the brilliant Irish and French jockeys Mick Kinane and Gerald Mosse whose return will excite the punting public. Payne gets them out of the barriers and travelling as well as anyone and he and Toledo promise to be most competitive come Sunday. The other Australian challenger for the Bowl, Bezeal Bay, has also gone into the notebook as a good sort. He could be very dangerous, too, this weekend. But of all the international runners on display over the past couple of days, it is Toledo who looks the one standout bet from the three races. The New Zealand runner in the Vase, Darazari, also looked a good type and could also be worth bearing in mind for Sunday's tierce in this 2,400-metre spectacular. The French runner in the Bowl, the Francois Doumen-trained Jim And Tonic, looks a sprinting type from head to toe. In the Cup, the English runner Almushtarak seemed a quality sort though he was a bit keen on Monday - probably due to the newness of the environment. The son of Fairy King has some very useful form to his name, having finished second in the Group One Sussex Stakes which is one of the top three Group One mile events in Europe. He's also run second in the Celebration Mile. Both these races are at Goodwood and if you can handle Goodwood's twists and turns then Sha Tin shouldn't be any problem. And there could be no knocking the New Zealand runner, Tycoon Lil, who is set to pose them all a threat in this 1,800-metre event - especially as he doesn't have any Might And Power with whom to contend. Of the local runners, Bumper Storm is flying in readiness for the Bowl, as is Resfa for the Cup for which Ivan Allan is guaranteed to have Oriental Express cherry ripe.
