Almond Eye Swansong in Japan Cup

The great race mare from Japan, Almond Eye, will make her final start of her career in the Japan Cup in 2 weeks time.

The multiple international Group 1 winner will face her toughest test to date in what is promising to be a classic renewal of the Japan Cup. Unfortunately due to the corona virus, neither crowds nor international media will be allowed on the grounds but it takes nothing away from the race itself. With the usual 100k plus crowd missing, she's still got to go up against Japanese Triple Crown winner Contrail & Triple Tiara winner Daring Tact, two formidable opponents over the extended distance.

This also means that Almond Eye will miss the Hong Kong international races in favour of this home swansong.
