World Ace and Real Impact are both set to make their Australian debuts in the $1 million Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens on March 21.

A third horse from Japan here for the autumn also runs on the day with Tosen Stardom, to be ridden by Sydney’s Tommy Berry, earmarked for the $500,000 Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m).

Deep Impact six-year-old World Ace currently sits top of the early markets at Ladbrokes.com.au for his major target this campaign, the $3 million Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) at Royal Randwick on Day 1 of The Championships, April 4.

The 2015 Doncaster Mile is also on the agenda for another progeny of Deep Impact, seven-year-old Real Impact an $11 chance to win the classic.

World Ace was last seen crossing fourth to Able Friend in the Group 1 Hong Kong Mile (1600m) at Sha Tin on December 14 while Real Impact comes off a win in the Group 2 Hanshin Cup (1400m) from December 27 back home in Japan.

Four-year-old entire Tosen Stardom meanwhile targets the autumn’s richest race, the $4 million Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Randwick on Day 2 of The Championships, April 11.

Futures Queen Elizabeth Stakes betting markets are led by the fourth Japanese raider out to make an impact in the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival, Japan’s top rated three-year-old in 2014 To The World ($5).

The King Kamehameha four-year-old was last seen running second in the Group 1 Arima Kinen (2500m) on December 28 and is down to run first-up in Australia a week after the other three in the $1.5 million Group 1 The BMW (2400m) at Rosehill Gardens on March 28.

Nick Hall has been booked to ride To The World in The BMW and Queen Elizabeth Stakes as well as World Ace throughout his campaign.

James McDonald meanwhile has the ride on Real Impact.

On Tuesday morning at Canterbury all four of the high-profile visitors stepped up their campaigns with some light work at the Sydney track, more strenuous activity to take place from next week according to the quartet’s connections.

“They have settled in nicely and are handling everything as well as we could hope at this stage,” Sydney-based Japanese hoop Yusuke Ichikawa, the connections down under for the four horses, said of the quartet.
