Rain among European Vase contendersHeadlines
Dancing Rain

Dancing Rain, trained by William Haggas, is one of a clutch of European raiders with strong claims in the Hong Kong Vase.

The 2011 Oaks heroine has had just one previous run this year, when an honourable third in the British Champions Fillies' And Mares' Stakes at Ascot in October.

Maureen Haggas, wife of the Newmarket handler, said: "She seems to have grown up a bit mentally since last year. She's fresh and should like the ground here a lot better than she did at Ascot on her last start."

She added: "That was her first run in a long time, and all things considered she ran well - hopefully she'll come on for that run."

Canadian International winner Joshua Tree also takes his chance for the Marco Botti team.

Botti said: "He's in good order, despite having had a long season, but he's such a consistent horse. He'll be up on the pace as always but I don't think it's necessary for him to lead."

Dunaden won the Vase 12 months ago, but must respond positively following a disappointing run in his defence of the Melbourne Cup last month.

Trainer Mikel Delzangles said: "The horse is very well. I'm not sure about the pace in the race but he's drawn well and I would have no problem if he was sitting behind the leader with cover. He doesn't have to get too far back."

Red Cadeaux had a busy November, finishing eighth in both the Melbourne and Japan Cup, and again represents Newmarket trainer Ed Dunlop.

Dunlop said: "He's ticking along OK and his form is better than it looks. He was the first European home in the Japan Cup on ground which was too firm for his liking - don't underestimate how good the Japanese horses are."
