The Jockey Club has been unable to tempt champion Australian sprinter Black Caviar to Hong Kong but has managed to do the next best thing by securing her jockey, Luke Nolen, as one of the new faces in the 2011 Cathay Pacific International Jockeys' Championship (CXIJC) at Happy Valley next month. The annual riders' feature on December 7 will see Nolen compete for the first time in Hong Kong, as will teenage New Zealand star James McDonald. Twelve jockeys representing nine countries will bid for the four-race series, with points scored on a 12-6-4 basis, and the HK$200,000 first prize. The runner-up will receive HK$100,000. The list of competitors includes the winners of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, Melbourne Cup, Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint, Epsom Oaks and QE II Cup, and the series will feature five past outright or shared IJC winners. Three-time victor Douglas Whyte carries the flag for Hong Kong; Germany's Andrasch Starke is a dual winner of the competition; and all three of the dead-heaters from 2009 - Christophe Lemaire, John Murtagh and Ryan Moore - are to take part. Moore returned last year for the IJC and took the series out solo. Nolen is already a household name thanks to his unbeaten association with Black Caviar, but is also a dual championship winner and the reigning premier rider in Melbourne, while McDonald, still only 19, has stood out as the dominant rider in New Zealand for the past two seasons and is now regularly mixing his duties there with raids on the top races in Australia. French prodigy Maxime Guyon is well known after a stint here last season, and will be back on Sunday to rejoin Ambitious Dragon in the Jockey Club Mile, but his participation in the IJC will be another notable first in the young Frenchman's career. Likewise, Yuichi Fukunaga will carry the Japanese flag in the IJC for the first time but he has been a regular visitor for international events at Sha Tin, most notably combining to win the Hong Kong Mile and two QE II Cups with Eishin Preston. The career of 41-year-old Corey Nakatani, a leading rider in California for many years, has undergone a rebirth since his move to the New York circuit this year and he became just the third rider to win six races on a card at Belmont Park last month as well as taking out two events on the rich Breeders' Cup programme at Churchill Downs. Nakatani has ridden at Sha Tin at international time, but will be making his Happy Valley debut. The field will be filled out with two more Hong Kong-based riders still to be announced - the leading local jockey on November 24 and the leading expatriate rider, other than Whyte, on the same date.
