Hong Kong Return For Maurice

Monday, 21st March 2016

Japanese Horse of the Year Maurice (Screen Hero-Mejiro Frances, by Carnegie) is set to make his eagerly awaited return to the track in the Gr1 Champions Mile at Sha Tin on 1 May when he will be ridden by Joao Moreira, while Gr1 Hong Kong Cup winner A Shin Hikari is being aimed at a Royal Ascot campaign, reports Racing Post. The Kazumi Yoshida-owned Maurice stamped himself as one of the world's premier milers when scoring an impressive win in the Gr1 Hong Kong Mile in December. It capped a stellar year for the son of Screen Hero who was unbeaten in all six starts, including Gr1 victories in the Yasuda Kinen and Mile Championship. Maurice was ruled out of Saturday's Dubai Turf at Meydan after suffering a slight setback in training.
