Attraction, Mark Johnston's four-times Group One winner, will make her seasonal debut in Hong Kong against Silent Witness in the Champions Mile on 14 May.

Silent Witness chalked up his 17th consecutive victory in the Queen's Silver Jubilee Cup over seven furlongs at Sha Tin last month.

"It's a very exciting trip," Johnston said, "but at this stage we don't want to count any chickens until we see her get on the horsebox tomorrow and see her get away."

The filly completed her preparation with a gallop at Newmarket on Sunday.
