Russian Emperor prevails in Hong Kong

The last G1 of the Hong Kong season, the Standard Champions and Chater, went to the favourite Russian Emperor for Douglas Whyte and Blake Shinn.

There was not much to doubt about the win, with the work horse Ka Ying Star second having started at 16/1.

Senor Toba was also a good run in finishing third. 

Blake Shinn had to put in a lot of hard yards before he started to get decent rides and he is finishing off his stint in Hong Kong in great style.

The Sprint was a tight result with the win going to Cordyceps Six by a nose from Nervous Witness and Lucky Patch picking up the third money.
