Teetan to team up with Stormy
Big-race jockey Karis Teetan will team up with Stormy Antarctic for the first time on Friday ahead of Sunday's Champions Mile at Sha Tin.
While Teetan may not be a household name in Europe, the Mauritian-born Hong Kong-based rider is considered as one of the leading pilots on an ultra-competitive circuit.
He will ride Ed Walker's 2016 Craven winner due to an arrangement with the owner, Siu Pak Kwan.
Speaking following track work on Thursday morning, Walker said: "The track was a bit sloppy so we were happy for him to do no more than some steady work again this morning.
"Karis (Teetan) will come down in the morning and will gallop him on the turf, just to dash up 400 (metres).
"He's fit and well and, really, tomorrow will just be stretching his legs and opening up his lungs."
Others in the seven-strong field include Sir Michael Stoute's Winter Derby winner Convey and the home-trained star Rapper Dragon.
