Jwala drawn wide in Sprint

Robert Cowell was left cursing his luck after his Nunthorpe winner Jwala draw the widest stall of all in the Longines Hong Kong Sprint.

The four-year-old filly, who subsequently finished fourth in the Prix de l'Abbaye after her crowning glory at York, will have to defy stall 14.

Cowell tweeted: "We've come half way round the world and draw gate 14 of 14!"

Eddie Lynam's two runners are next door to each other with Sole Power in nine and Slade Power in 10.

There was better news for the rest of the Europeans with The Fugue faring well in stall three for the Vase.

In the same race Dandino drew five, Mount Athos six, Red Cadeaux 11, Dunaden 12 and Galileo Rock 13.

In the Cup Side Glance is in two, Grandeur drew seven with Cirrus Des Aigles in 10.

Moonlight Cloud is in stall six for the Mile with Sky Lantern in eight and Gordon Lord Byron in four.

Gordon Lord Byron's trainer Tom Hogan said: "He's a much stronger horse than he was last year and the fast pace will suit us, giving us the opportunity to attack late.

"He loves the fast ground and we are very happy. Last year, within two hours of the race he had a high temperature."
