Racing: Luso on the outside

LUSO WAS yesterday given the widest draw of all in Sunday's Japan Cup at Tokyo. The six-year-old, whose trainer Clive Brittain landed the race with Jupiter Island in 1986, will start from stall 15. But he will have the assistance in the saddle of Michael Kinane, who drove Pilsudksi to victory a year ago.

Godolphin's Faithful Son (Frankie Dettori) was drawn in stall four, alongside the US challenger Maxzene (Cash Asmussen). Other overseas contenders are Canada's Chief Bearhart (Jose Santos, stall six) and the German pair, Caitano (Olivier Peslier, eight) and Ungaro (Terence Hellier, 14).
