The Cathay Pacific International Jockeys' Championship at Happy Valley next month promises a preview of the future against a backdrop of past winners with the announcement that freshly crowned champs Ryan Moore and Declan McDonogh will join the line-up. Once again the Jockey Club has sought as many of the past CXIJC victors as possible on December 6 with Moore, McDonogh and North American-based Javier Castellano the new names to take them on. The only past winners missing will be Frankie Dettori and Christophe Soumillon from a field which includes CXIJC heroes Olivier Peslier (1998), Andrasch Starke (2000 and 2005), Damien Oliver (2003), Douglas Whyte (2002) and Yutaka Take (tied with Soumillon in 2004). 'We'd have loved to have them here but Frankie and Christophe were unavailable. Christophe will be here to ride at the international meeting a few days later but just couldn't make it for the Wednesday,' said the Jockey Club's international racing manager, Mark Player, yesterday. 'But I do think we've ended up with a great mix of the established players and new blood.' Moore, 23, was recently crowned the youngest British champion jockey since Pat Eddery won the title in 1974 aged 22, while there have only ever been two previous winners of the Irish jockeys' championship younger than 26-year-old McDonogh. It won't be a first trip to Hong Kong, however, for Moore, who has been here once before as an apprentice rider when he assisted Malcolm Bastard some years ago when he was preparing a batch of youngsters for the International Sale. Venezuelan-born Castellano, 29, enjoyed a high-profile partnership in 2004 with the great North American galloper Ghostzapper and has been a headliner again more recently with Preakness Stakes-winning Bernardini. Australia will field two representatives in the CXIJC in Oliver, who has recently shown he is right back to his best after career-threatening injuries suffered in a fall last year, along with Glen Boss, who forged such a famous union with the triple Melbourne Cup-winning Makybe Diva. Germany, with Starke and Andreas Suborics, will also have very experienced dual representatives, while Britain will be double-handed with the current champion Moore and 2005 titleholder Jamie Spencer. Whyte will again fly the flag for Hong Kong with one other spot left open for the leading Chinese jockey after the December 2 meeting.
