French great Cirrus Des Aigles will try to break a jinx that has left him winless in Hong Kong when he headlines one of the world's richest race meetings on Sunday. The seven-year-old, the world's top racehorse a year ago, will make his fifth attempt at glory at the $9.3 million Hong Kong International Races. Japanese sprint star Lord Kanaloa will make his final appearance before retirement and British trainer Richard Hannon will oversee his last race when Sky Lantern runs the Mile. Cirrus Des Aigles has failed three times in Hong Kong in 2009, 2010 and 2011, and last year he was forced to pull out of the Cup race with a late injury.
