'He moved well and felt good in his final workout, and he's every bit as good as last year (when third to Vengeance Of Rain in the HK Cup).' RICHARD HILLS, jockey of Maraahel. 'My horse becomes a champion when he travels abroad - he even changes colour into a deep chestnut. I knew we would win the Canadian International last time and I think we are the horse to beat.' DEAN MCKEOWN, jockey of Collier Hill. 'If he can finish in the first five it will be a good run.' TORSTEN MUNDRY, jockey of Egerton. 'I think we will get into the money. He's in good form and I think he is getting better with age. He was quite a weak three-year-old but he is stronger now and ran a good race in America. Surprisingly, for a horse by Montjeu, he will like the ground at Sha Tin as he has a fast ground, quick action. 'Obviously I would like there to be plenty of pace, but I would not be worried about going on with Scorpion if there wasn't. He is adaptable.' SEAMUS HEFFERNAN, jockey of Scorpion. 'His work this week has been very good. He raced against Hello Pretty last time and beat the Derby winner Viva Pataca quite easily so we have all the boxes ticked. He will run a good race.' DANNY NIKOLIC, jockey of Saturn. 'I know she disappointed a bit in Canada but the ground there was very soft and the only other time she was below par was on a similar surface. She will love the going here and she seems very well to me.' JIMMY O'NEILL, head lad for Kastoria's trainer John Ox. 'She's in great form and I think can she do better than last year but I can't ignore the fact that the Vase is going to be a very tough race to win.' ALAIN DE ROYER DUPRE, trainer of Shamdala. 'He has looked sharp since his arrival. If he can show his true performance he has a big chance. The draw in four is fine, because we have a little time until getting to the first bend and he will like the ground.' MITSURU HASHIDA, trainer of Admire Main.
