Some of the world's best stayers have taken out the Hong Kong Vase, which has largely been dominated by the Europeans, but Pakistan Star is looking to stave off the overseas raiders in 2019.

2018 Hong Kong Vase result

All eyes were on Pakistan Star but the Hong Kong cult-hero was in the shadows of fellow Hong Kong runner Exultant, which enjoyed a perfect trip in transit and that was the difference in the result.

Arguably the best run of the race came from Japanese entrant Lys Gracieux, which was held up, forced wide and bumped in the straight after looming and looking a winning contender. Jockey Joao Moreira didn't have his best ride but Zac Purton aboard Exultant did.

UK-trained Eziyra finished off well to run third at big odds.
