Trainer Tony Millard is making up for lost time as he attempts to prime his star galloper Northern Superstar (formerly Edict of Nantes in South Africa) for next months’ Longines Hong Kong Cup.

The dual Group One-winning South African import will make his Hong Kong debut on Sunday in the Class One Chevalier Cup (1,600m) but Millard admits he would be happy just to see his horse “run on well” after a shortened preparation.

Having last raced in South Africa in December 2017, the five-year-old has had almost 12 months off racing due to various quarantine procedures and injury, and while Millard says the Hong Kong Cup was always the target race, he wishes he could be a month further ahead in his preparation.
