English jockey Ryan Moore claimed a big race double at the Hong Kong International Races, winning two Group One contests in Sha Tin.

The 32-year-old triumphed aboard Highland Reel for Irish trainer Aidan O'Brien in the Hong Kong Vase.

Moore, who returned to action in September after two months out with a neck injury, also won the Hong Kong Mile on the Japanese-trained Maurice.

The Hong Kong Cup went to Japan as A Shin Hikari led from start to finish.
