2011 Japan Cup
A total of 16 runners have been entered for the 2011 Japan Cup, held on Sunday, November 27 at Tokyo Racecourse.
Buena Vista attempts to revenge a disqualification after finishing first in last year's Japan Cup. Her form could be topped in this second start off taking a long vacation.
Tosen Jordan and Eishin Flash, who ran in the Tenno Sho Autumn last outing, could produce a good fight in the final stage.
Victoire Pisa is capable of winning the world-famous Japanese race, but he has not run since the Dubai World Cup which he won for Japan.
It will be no big surprise that Danedream gets to the winning post.
