19/04/02 Prince Primed for QE II Cup at Sha Tin
0419draw.jpg (14104 bytes)Australia's representative in Sunday's Audemars Piguet QE II Cup at Sha Tin in Hong Kong, Universal Prince, is in great shape and ready to run the race of his life.

At yesterday's barrier draw the gelding drew barrier three and his in form trainer Bede Murray is looking forward to the big race on the weekend.

Murray said he was more than pleased with the condition of his son of Scenic after travelling from Australia recently.

"His weight is 481 kgs (1058 lbs), exactly the same as when he won the AJC Australian Derby last year," Murray said from Hong Kong yesterday.

"That makes me more hopeful. He's looking great too," he added.

Universal Prince was due to have his final gallop for the rich international race this morning. His regular race rider Justin Sheehan will be riding the gelding on Sunday. Sheehan has been with Universal Prince since the galloper arrived in Hong Kong.

Leading British bookmaker William Hill has Universal Prince marked at 9/2 and the fourth favourite for the Cup. Not surprisingly the Godolphin galloper Grandera is the favourite.
