2007 Kikuka Sho: Major Players

The major players in the 2007 Kikuka Sho could be:
St. Lite Kinen winner Roc de Cambes(NZ), who never got behind in 4 starts; Dream Journey coming off an impressive victory in the Kobe Shimbun Hai; Japanese Derby runner-up Asakusa Kings coming here with a respectable second in the Kobe Shimbun Hai; Satsuki Sho winner Victory and Hokuto Sultan who came from third and fourth, respectively, in the Kobe.

Kikuka Sho trend:
Favorites have recently struggled; Deep Impact in 2005 is the only winning favorite in the last 10 years. A prep race is essential. The last 10 winners have prepped at least once in the Autumn season. Kobe Shimbun Hai provides a good guidance. Five of the last 7 winners have run there.
