Losing at the worlds still bothers me, says Malaysian ace Lee Chong Wei

Former world number one Lee Chong Wei has revealed he’s still feeling the pain of his disastrous World Championships campaign this year in Glasgow, where he was dumped in the first round. The Malaysian ace recorded his worst-ever result at the worlds in the Glasgow tournament in August after losing to Brice Leverdez of France in his opener. Lee was opening up on his disappointment of not being able to win a badminton “major” yet again after playing second fiddle to his great...

Aidan O’Brien out to put the icing on a record-breaking season with a strong team at the Longines

Irish wizard Aidan O’Brien will attempt to put the icing on the most successful Group One season in world flat racing history with a full-frontal assault on the Longines Hong Kong International Races (HKIR) at Sha Tin December 10. The Jockey Club has announced the invited runners for the four Group One features and O’Brien has six of the 32 foreign-trained invitees, who will go to war over the HK$86.5 million in stake money with 23 locally trained runners. Hong Kong’s defences...

Werther will try to stave off a strong foreign brigade in the Longines Hong Kong Cup

22/11/2017, China, Multi Sports, China Publications, Article # 24923242
The world’s richest 2,000m event on turf at Sha Tin in December will see a lonely John Moore-trained Werther attempting to stave off the foreign might of some of the world’s great owners and trainers in the HK$25 million Longines Hong Kong Cup. Since the race was elevated to international Group One status in 1999, when great French globetrotter Jim And Tonic took the prize, Hong Kong has trailed the rest of the world by six wins to 12 in the Cup. With nine of the 13 invitees coming...

Highland Reel can go out on a high in the Longines Hong Kong Vase

22/11/2017, China, Multi Sports, China Publications, Article # 24923243
It would be fitting if Highland Reel finished his storied career on a high in the Hong Kong Vase but the popular globetrotter faces a quality field that includes his full brother and an X-factor in the form of a star Japanese three-year-old. Coolmore’s six-time Group One winner is set to run his 27th and final race in an event he won in 2015 as a three-year-old and was a narrow second last year. Aside from the two Japanese-trained runners in the race, Highland Reel’s competition...

The locals hold the aces when it comes to the Longines Hong Kong Sprint, but they will face a host of worthy challengers with five of the six international raiders boasting a Group One victory to their name. The “core four” of Lucky Bubbles, Mr Stunning, Amazing Kids and Thewizardofoz look to be the top hopes from Hong Kong and given the home team has won 12 of the past 15 renewals, it appears they have the edge. Mr Stunning was terrific winning the Group Two Jockey Club Sprint on...

Coolmore heads into the Hong Kong Mile double-handed with talented three-year-olds Lancaster Bomber and Roly Poly but the global racing giant will have its work cut out taking the race from the firm grip of a still-strong local group. The Aidan O’Brien-trained pair arrive at Sha Tin via the Breeders’ Cup Mile at Del Mar earlier this month where Lancaster Bomber was second at Group One level for the third time this year and Roly Poly’s 11th was better than it looked on paper....

Rafa Cabrera Bello thanks countryman Miguel Angel Jimenez for ensuring the Fanling crowd will be on his side at this week’s UBS Hong Kong Open, but knows past Spanish success means nothing now. With avenging last year’s runner-up finish top of his to-do list, Cabrera Bello is quick to acknowledge and dismiss the rich Spanish history surrounding the Hong Kong Open in the same breath. “At the end, it really means nothing, just because another Spaniard won here, it’s not...
