Reigning Champion Jockey Joao Moreira tells Andrew Le Jeune about his decision to leave Hong Kong at the end of this season and move to Japan.

Moreira currently leads Zac Purton by one winner in the battle to be crowned 2017/18 top jockey.

Purton looks for a Handsome return at Sha Tin

Zac Purton will have the second of two “free hits” at Sha Tin on Sunday, 10 June, when he hopes to take advantage of Joao Moreira’s absence and take pole position in the jockeys’ championship with only one month of the season remaining.
