Hong Kong will have four representatives on the big night, led by Kranji mile winner SOUTHERN LEGEND who is bidding to become the first Hong Kong-trained winner of the G1 Dubai Turf. WISHFUL THINKER, one of the most progressive horses this season, will tackle Group One company for the first time when he lines up for the Al Quoz Sprint. Meanwhile, his stable companion GOLD MOUNT will have his stamina tested in the G2 Dubai Gold Cup over 3200m. FIGHT HERO completes the Hong Kong quartet in the G1 Golden Shaheen where he is likely to face top American dirt sprinters.
