International Bowl and Hong Kong Cup hero Jim And Tonic heads a strong overseas challenge for next month's Audemars Piguet Queen Elizabeth II Cup. The Francis Doumen-trained raider was an easy winner of the race last year and is unbeaten in three international events in Hong Kong. He is almost certain to be ridden as usual by Gerald Mosse and will come into the April 16, 2,000-metre spectacular off the back of a narrow second in the inaugural Sinagpore Airlines International Cup. Apart from the local challenge that is set to come from the likes of Indigenous, Resfa and Derby star, Keen Winner, this year's 10-strong overseas challenge appears full of quality. Six of the 10 have won in International Group One company and include the 1998 Arc De Triomphe winner Sagamix, who is now racing under the Godolphin banner. The David Elsworth-trained Lear Spear is a likely runner. He was unlucky in December's Hong Kong Cup where he would have run second to Jim And Tonic but was badly hampered in the home straight. Carry The Flag, just behind Jim And Tonic in the Singapore, represents the island state. The in-form Shoozi Please could be the best of the Australian runners while it remains to be seen if America's Honor Glide makes the trip.
