Japanese horses have dominated the Hong Kong International meeting at Sha Tin winning three of the four Group One races.
The John Size-trained local beat The Clock claimed the Hong Kong Sprint (1200m) in which the raging favourite Aethero could only manage third.
The Sprint was run without Australian Group One-winning mare In Her time who was ruled out on race morning with a hoof injury.
Hong Kong-based Joao Moreira rode five winners on the program including two of the Group One races, the Vase and the Sprint.
Sydney jockey Hugh Bowman was fourth in the Sprint on Mr Stunning and fourth in the Cup on Furore.
