Collection wins in Hong Kong

Collection, formerly trained by William Haggas, landed the Citibank Hong Kong Gold Cup at Sha Tin.

The five-year-old, now with John Moore, took the 10-furlong Group One in good style in the hands of Darren Beadman by a length and three-quarters from Thumbs Up.

The ex-Kevin Prendergast inmate Mr Medici was two lengths away back in third. Collection, who won the Hampton Court Stakes at Royal Ascot in 2008, had Hong Kong superstar Good Ba Ba back in fourth and Viva Pataca in sixth.
