Godson to prolific owner Lloyd Williams, Hall’s biggest achievement to date is partnering the Robert Hickmott-trained Fawkner to victory in the 2013 Caulfield Cup.

He’ll be looking to add some prized Sydney Group 1s to his record this year including aboard two genuine hopes from Japan in To The World and World Ace.

To The World is the big name Japanese visit down under this season, the King Kamehameha stallion last seen running second to champion mare Gentildonna in the Group 1 Arima Kinen (2514m) on December 28.

Also lining-up in that star-studded race were the world’s highest-rated racehorse Just A Way and Japan Cup winner Epiphaneia who ran fourth and fifth respectively.

That was his second Group 1 second place following the Japanese 2000 Guineas last April.

The lightly-raced four-year-old has had just six starts to date for the one win which was on debut in March last year in the Group 2 Hochi Hai Yayoi Sho (2011m) at Nakaya Racecourse.

His major targets are both weight-for-age classics during The Championships this autumn with the $1.5 million Group 1 The BMW (2400m) at Rosehill Gardens on March 28 and the season’s richest race, the $4 million Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Royal Randwick on April 11.

World Ace meanwhile is a six-year-old Deep Impact entire who, like To The World, is only lightly-raced win seven starts for a single win at Group 2 level.

That was first-up over the Kyoto mile in April in the Yomiuri Milers Cup (1609m).

Five of his starts have been in Group 1 company to date including most recently at Hong Kong’s Sha Tin Racecourse on December 14 when Aussie expat Zac Purton rode him to a fourth behind Able Friend, also Australian-bound this season, in the Hong Kong Cup.

Down under his two Group 1 targets will be in the $1 million George Ryder Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill on Golden Slipper Day, March 21, and the $3 million Doncaster Mile (1600m) at Randwick on April 12.

In the 2015 Doncaster Mile World Ace could come up against Hong Kong Cup winner Able Friend again with the latter also set to target the race on Sydney soil this season.

Able Friend leads futures Doncaster Mile betting at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $6 just ahead of current second fancy World Ace at $8.

For the Queen Elizabeth Stakes meanwhile To The World leads the all-in odds at $5 before Cox Plate winner Adelaide occupies the second line of betting at $6.50.
