Top class Australian galloper Universal Prince has arrived in Hong Kong for his first international test.

The Bede Murray trained gelding touched down in Hong Kong yesterday in preparation for the Audemars Piguet QE II Cup on April 21.

A son of Scenic, Universal Prince hasn't started since finished a close second to champion New Zealand mare Ethereal in the million dollar The BMW at Rosehill in Sydney on Golden Slipper day, March 23.

Murray told the Hong Kong Jockey Club the horse's preparation has been going to plan and he is looking forward to the challenge.

"The horse pulled up well from his last run and has done well since," Murray said.

"Everything's in order for Hong Kong and we're really looking forward to it," he added.

Connections are confident Universal Prince will appreciate the track on which the rich race will be run.

"By all reports Sha Tin should be the perfect track for him," Murray added.
