To The World, World Ace, Real Impact, and Tosen Stardom enjoyed a leisurely work-out around the racetrack yesterday morning ahead of their Gr1 assignments next month. Sydney-based Japanese jockey Yusuke Ichikawa, who is helping out with the horses preparations, said: "Real Impact is a Group One horse as a three-year-old and the other horses are very good horses. All four horses have a pretty good chance. One is already a Group One winner and World Ace ran fourth in Hong Kong in his last start." He added, "The other two horses have run second in Group Ones so they are quality horses and very competitive."
