Jakkalberry is poised to take out the 2012 Japan Cup this Sunday according to his trainer, Marco Botti.
The six-year-old placed an impressive third in the $6.2 million Melbourne Cup last start and will be hoping to go two better when he runs in the 2012 Japan Cup this weekend.
“We’re very pleased with his condition,” said Botti.
“According to the lads this morning, they have got to Tokyo and he seems well and fresh and ready to go again.
“It was obviously a good performance in the Melbourne Cup. He finished well and we were very pleased.
“It was a wonderful experience and a great atmosphere (in Australia).”
Botti is now looking towards their Japan goal, which will see Jakkalberry come back to 2,400 metres in the Japan Cup.
“He’s a tough horse and we are looking forward to the Japan Cup on Sunday,” said the trainer.
“The opposition is very tough and the Japanese horses are top-class.
“It’s going to be very competitive but coming back to a mile and a half I don’t think is going to be a problem and the ground will be fine.
“He owes us nothing whatever he does. After this we want to give him a nice break and prepare him to campaign in Dubai.”
