Sha Tin: An evenly matched field is expected for the Hong Kong Mile (G1), though one name does stick out from the pack, that of last year’s winner; the locally trained champion Good Ba Ba.
Pressing, back-to-back winner of the Topkapi Trophy in Turkey, is one ofe his most accomplished rivals, heading a strong team from Europe, while the Californian miler Ferneley is the lone North American representative.
