One of the world's most lucrative flat races takes place at Tokyo racecourse on Sunday, as a classy field enters the stalls ahead of the Japan Cup. This one-and-a-half-mile Grade One was created in 1981 and has been won by many of Japan's greatest race horses, including Deep Impact and two-time winner, Almond Eye.

Here are the latest odds for this year's Japan Cup and a look through the entries.

Japan's Triple Crown winner of 2020, Contrail will carry a short price into Sunday's main event. Yoshito Yahagi's four-year-old finished second to Almond Eye in last year's renewal, and will be retired to stud following Sunday's Japan Cup.

This year's Japanese Derby winner, Shahryar sits second in the market, despite only finishing fourth in his prep race in September. Dual-Grade Two winner, Authority can also be found sitting on a single-figure price.

Japanese Oaks winner, Uberleben will take on the colts for the first time. Aristoteles could line up against Contrail again, having lost out by just a next to his rival in the Japanese version of the St Leger last season.

Aidan O'Brien could be represented by both Breeders' Cup Turf runner-up, Broome and the aptly named Japan. Japanese stars like Kiseki and Grand Glory also feature in the Tokyo entries.
