Hong Kong Cup contender, Cirrus Des Aigles, is always a headline draw. The French superstar has been in great form this year, winning three Group One races to take his top-flight tally to six, and takes on the improving Roger Varian-trained Farraaj.
The world’s richest turf mile race, the Hong Kong Mile, features Britain’s Woodbine Mile victor and Breeders’ Cup Mile third Trade Storm.
