Dao Dao Draws Barrier 10 For HK Gr1 Champions Mile
In Hong Kong, Australian-bred 6YO gelding Dao Dao (Shinko Forest-Casual Way, by Casual Lies) drew unfavourable barrier 10 for Sunday's Gr1 Champions Mile (1600m) at Sha Tin & trainer Michael Hawkes confirmed he would "have preferred a barrier a little more to the inside". Hawkes said Dao Dao (who finished 3rd in this race last year) "will travel just behind the pace & he will be thereabouts in the finish again."
