Screen Hero storms to Japan Cup

Italian jockey Mirco Demuro celebrates after piloting Screen Hero to victory
Demuro and Screen Hero produced a storming finish to win in Tokyo

Italian jockey Mirco Demuro guided Screen Hero to victory in the Japan Cup ahead of pre-race favourite Deep Sky.

But the English contingent of Purple Moon, Sixties Icon and Papal Bull were disappointing, finishing sixth, 11th and 14th respectively in Tokyo.

Screen Hero stormed from fifth to first in the final furlong to win by half a length in the 1.5 mile race, with second favourite Vodka third.

Demuro said: "It was a very competitive race, but he concentrated very well."
