'I'm very excited to be going to the Yasuda Kinen and I think we've got a great chance to win it for Hong Kong,' says Moore after booking big-race jockey from Down Under John Moore has played a masterstroke in his bid to win next month's Yasuda Kinen in Tokyo, announcing yesterday that he had booked champion Australian jockey Darren Beadman for Joyful Winner. Beadman, Sydney's record-breaking rider, is the consummate big-occasion player and has won just about every 'major' in his homeland, including two Melbourne Cups and a raft of races on champion Octagonal and his son Lonhro. Last week, Moore expressed his disappointment in Shane Dye's riding of Joyful Winner when third behind Bullish Luck in the Group One Champions Mile at Sha Tin and said the New Zealander would not be invited to accompany Joyful Winner in Tokyo. 'I knew Christophe [Soumillon] was unlikely to be available because it's French Derby day at Chantilly, and then I thought of Darren Beadman,' Moore explained. 'So I called Darren up and asked if he thought John Hawkes would mind if I borrowed him for one weekend. He rang Hawkesy, who apparently said, 'Go on, go to Tokyo and enjoy yourself'. 'So it's all confirmed. He'll be there early to ride Joyful Winner in his final gallop on the Thursday [June 1],' Moore added. The trainer said Joyful Winner had pulled up in great order after the Champions Mile and was showing no signs of fatigue at the back end of a long season. 'Probably because of the bad luck he had in the race, he didn't have a tough run and that's probably the reason he's pulled up so well,' Moore said. 'I think he's going to have a great chance in the race. Christophe told me this horse has a faster turn of foot than Bullish Luck, and you saw what Bullish Luck did to them in the Champions Mile. 'I'm very excited to be going to the Yasuda Kinen and I think we've got a great chance to win it for Hong Kong.' Douglas Whyte said last night he would be partnering Danacourt, on the assumption that trainer John Size and owner Chow Kay-yui accepted the Japan Racing Association's invitation. 'As I understand it, they haven't made a final decision but assuming he does go, yes, I'll be riding him,' Whyte said. Tony Cruz has decided against sending Hong Kong's fallen idol Silent Witness and will now rely solely on Bullish Luck, to be ridden by Brett Prebble. Silent Witness will now enjoy a summer holiday and be prepared for the International Mile Trial in November and the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Mile in December. Weichong Marwing, who will ride in today's S$3 million ($14.8 million) Singapore Airlines International Cup at Kranji racecourse, left Sha Tin last night with a two-meeting suspension to add to the one he received at Happy Valley on Wednesday night. Marwing was found guilty of careless riding on Sambuca in the ATV Cup. He was found to have shifted his ground near the 200 metres when not clear and deemed responsible for the interference that caused hot favourite Hello Pretty to be checked. As this was Marwing's second careless riding suspension, he was also fined $80,000, which stewards say represents two extra race meetings. With the two-meeting stretch he received last Wednesday night, the South African must now sit out the next four race meetings.
