The 2013 Seoul International jockey challenge gets underway at Seoul Race Park on Saturday. Of the 9 races on the card, two are part of the challenge; the Macao Jockey Club Cup and the Horse Racing Ireland Trophy. Here is a run down of the fields for those races:

Macao Jockey Club Cup – Seoul Race Park (Race 6) – 1300M – Aug 10, 17:40

1. Victory Dancer (18/2/3/1) – Noel Callow
2. Hayan Nuri (14/2/3/0) – Niall McCullagh
3. Sen Tank (9/2/2/4) – Jo In Kwen
4. Blue Camp (8/3/2/1) – Fausto Pinto
5. Daebagyeonchul (13/3/0/1) – Shinichiro Akiyama
6. Black Swan (15/3/2/2) – Park Tae Jong
7. Changcheon (11/2/3/2) – Moon Se Young
8. Geomtan (9/3/2/1) – Raymond Danielson
9. S-Way (11/3/1/0) – Jo Sung Gon
10. Cheolli Gisang (19/1/5/3) Seo Seung Un
11. McKenzie Boy (11/3/1/2) – Yucel Bilik
12. Last Mudae (16/2/4/2) – You Hyun Myung

No stand-outs in this competetive opener although Geomtan comes into the race with the best recent form. Black Swan beat a number of his rivals here when winning last time out, while there should also be support for Blue Camp, S-Way and Derby also-ran Last Mudae.

Horse Racing Ireland Trophy – Seoul Race Park (Race 8) – 1400M – August 10, 19:10

1. Bukdaepung (13/4/2/0) – Fausto Durso
2. Geuma Queen (17/3/2/3) – Noel Callow
3. Chongal Gongju (15/2/4/0) – You Hyun Myung
4. Onnuri Plaza (15/4/0/4) – Niall McCullagh
5. Victory Camp (37/4/1/3) – Shinichiro Akiyama
6. January Queen (18/5/1/0) – Seo Seung Un
7. Eutteum Khan (16/4/2/1) – Moon Se Young
8. Chiming Vicar (14/4/2/1) – Raymond Danielson
9. Blue Band Zet (35/3/3/3) – Jo Sung Gon
10. Suho Cheonsa (31/2/4/4) – Park Tae Jong
11. Yeoui Gold (15/5/3/1) – Jo In Kwen
12. Dangchan Miso (23/5/2/1) – Yucel Bilik

A lot of horses here who have struggled to really make an impression since reaching class 2 and many will welcome dropping back in distance to 7 furlongs. Dangchan Miso holds a recent victory over many of those who run here but finished behind probable favourite Yeoui Gold last run. Eutteum Khan, Bukdaepung and January Queen will also have backers.

There are 9 races in total at Seoul on Saturday with the first at 13:00 and the last at 19:40. There is also racing on Jeju Island. On Sunday only Seoul runs with 14 races from 13:00 to 19:40.
