Americain "In Very Good Form" For HK Gr1 International
Meanwhile jockey Gerald Mosse declared last month's Gr1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) winner Americain "is in very good form" in the lead up to Sunday's HK Gr1 International Vase (2400m) at Sha Tin. Mosse rode Americain in track-work yesterday & commented: "He just did a canter this morning, but I rode him again yesterday morning & he feels fine. He did 1800m, same as last week, but maybe a bit faster. He's back in full gear & very fluent. I'm not too worried about the drop in trip from the Melbourne Cup. Maybe the further he goes the better, but I think he should be okay. It's not something he's never done before. He did a proper job at 2400m in Geelong on a tiny track & I believe this bigger track at Sha Tin will help him."
