Military Attack ran out an ultra-impressive winner of the Singapore Airlines International Cup at Kranji.

Raced under the name of Rave for John Hills in Britain, Military Attack has developed a new lease of life as a five-year-old in Hong Kong and put this race to bed within a matter of strides.

Ed Dunlop's globetrotter Red Cadeaux was forced to concede plenty of ground by making his move wide down the back straight and he could never land a blow, while Godolphin's Hunter's Light looked to be travelling well but found little.

Mull Of Killough was always in a decent position under George Baker but was run out of the places close home.

Jockey Zac Purton was allowed the luxury of easing right down on the John Moore-trained winner, with Dan Exel, formerly Dunboyne Express during his racing days in Ireland, finishing second.

Winning trainer Moore said: "There is Royal Ascot and the Prince Of Wales's Stakes but I would love to win a Group One in Australia.

"I shall talk to the owner and consider giving him a break and then getting him ready for the Cox Plate."
