Star sprint duo getting along well in their new surroundings Trainers Tony Cruz and David Oughton issued positive travel reports after their respective charges Silent Witness and Cape Of Good Hope travelled to Tokyo yesterday without incident. Cruz said Hong Kong's star sprinter, who has never been beaten in 17 races at 1,400 metres or less, travelled like a veteran on his second trip to Japan, where he will contest the $12.7 million Sprinters' Stakes over 1,200m at Nakayama on Sunday week. 'He travelled there without a problem and has settled straight into his quarters,' Cruz said. 'The Japan Racing Association have been very helpful and allowed us to send Highlilli as a travelling and galloping companion. My boys tell me they are both in good order.' Oughton gave a similar review to the grand globetrotter Cape Of Good Hope, who has already won two Group One races on foreign shores this year - one in Australia and one in England, both at 1,200m. 'He's fine. He travelled without the slightest worry as usual and never turned a hair,' Oughton said. Cape Of Good Hope has his attendant from the successful Royal Ascot trip, Win Chung, with him again, along with trackwork rider Dale Bussey. Silent Witness has his regular mafoo, Hung Fuk-nin, and he will be ridden in trackwork by Patrick Tse Chung-hon, with Cody Mo Wai-kit partnering him in workouts on Highlilli. Brett Prebble has been booked to ride Cape Of Good Hope, a partnership that garnered that historic victory in the Group One Australia Stakes at Moonee Valley in February. Prebble and the Cape Crusader were reacquainted in a barrier trial over 1,050m on the all-weather track at Sha Tin on Tuesday morning. Cape Of Good Hope travelled strongly all the way, in a handy position just behind the leaders. Prebble had a lap full of horse under him coming to the home turn and it was only a matter of waiting for a gap to open. As soon as Cape Of Good Hope saw daylight, he virtually took Prebble through the gap without being asked and went on to win the trial by a comfortable length from Class Two sprinter Every Time, with Derby and QEII hero Vengeance Of Rain a late-closing third under Anthony Delpech. 'I was very pleased with the trial, and it confirms he's in really good form again,' Oughton said. The Sprinters' Stakes is the final leg of the inaugural Global Sprint Challenge, a series in which Cape Of Good Hope is already a runaway winner, regardless of how the results fall this weekend. Silent Witness has not contested any previous leg of the series, but is expected to be a dominant favourite, with Japanese racegoers having been won over by his magnificent, fighting third in the Group One Yaduda Kinen over 1,600m at Fuchu on June 5.
