Cirrus Des Aigles, Flintshire, Gordon Lord Byron, Sole Power and Red Red Cadeaux are some of the star European names selected for next month's Longines Hong Kong International Races at Sha Tin.

The Ed Dunlop-trained Red Cadeaux is set to line up in the Hong Kong Vase - a race he won in 2012 - after finishing second for a third time in the Melbourne Cup earlier this month.

He has been picked for the mile-and-a-half heat along with Charlie Hills' Canadian Group One winner Just The Judge and the Michael Stoute-trained Snow Sky, who was last sighted finishing third in the St Leger.

Andre Fabre has aimed Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe and Breeders' Cup Turf runner-up Flintshire at the race, while Jim Bolger's Parish Hall is also in the mix.

The Tom Hogan-trained Gordon Lord Byron and Eddie Lynam's Sole Power are both in contention for the Hong Kong Sprint, while Trade Storm is one of three British runners in the Hong Kong Mile.

Roger Charlton's Captain Cat and the Roger Varian-trained Aljamaaheer are also in a race that features a clutch of top horses including Japanese stars Grand Prix Boss, Fiero and Hana's Goal as well as local runners Able Friend, Ambitious Dragon and Gold Fun.

Cirrus Des Aigles is one of the star names in the Hong Kong Cup and he will be having his fifth start at the Sha Tin meeting for trainer Corine Barande-Barbe.

Varian's Faraaj is the only British-trained representative in a race that also stars Australian runner Criterion, former Irish runner Designs On Rome and previous dual winner California Memory.

"The Longines Hong Kong International Races is one of the most lucrative and prestigious days in the horseracing calendar, and, once again, the great talents that comprise the selections for our four Group One races illustrate that point," said William A Nader, the Hong Kong Jockey Club's Executive Director of Racing.

"We have a slew of proven elite level horses coming to Sha Tin for world racing's great end-of-year occasion, making up a total of 22 individual winners of 43 Group One races.

"This is always a great showcase of international racing at the highest level with top horses such as Flintshire and Cirrus Des Aigles heading the overseas line-up against the best of Hong Kong."
