The Stewards? Cup is the first jewel in the highly prestigious Hong Kong Triple Crown. Raced over a distance of 1600metres on a turf track, this Group 1 race held at the Sha Tin Racecourse in January annually, offers prizemoney of HK$8million. The event is contended by an elite field of thoroughbreds aged three-years and older.

When betting on the Stewards? Cup it is always good to consider the best milers going around as well as the trainers and jockeys who have seen success in the race before. Leading trainer Andreas Schutz?s entries are worth looking out for as he has won the last two Stewards? Cups with Good Ba Ba. Another trainer with an impressive record in Hong Kong is Tony Cruz, so keep an eye on his entries as well.

Many Stewards? Cup runners will continue their campaigns with a run in the next two legs of the Triple Crown, the Gold Cup (2000m) in February and the Champions & Chater Cup (2400m) in May.
