NORTHERN SUPERSTAR AT WORK
Northern Superstar, formerly Edict Of Nantes, will line up in the Grade 1 Longines Hong Kong Cup over 2000m at Sha Tin on Sunday.
Although the 2017 Cape Derby and Daily News 2000 winner has had a number of barrier trials, he has only raced once since arriving, where he finished sixth.
Millard is not fazed by the unorthodox route into Hong Kong’s richest race.
“It was always the plan to go to the Cup – that’s the type of horse he is,” he said.
“It is what it is, you can only play the cards that you’re dealt.”
Karis Teetan will ride the son of Count Dubois in Race 8 on Sunday.
Millard also saddles Singapore Sling in the Longines Hong Kong Mile.
