Aidan O'Brien's King George and Breeders' Cup Turf winner Highland Reel claimed the Hong Kong Vase over a mile and a half last year and he is entered to defend his title on December 11.

He could be joined in the race by Michael Bell's Big Orange, fresh from his adventures in Australia where he finished 10th in the Melbourne Cup but was only just touched off in the Zipping Classic.
