Capri and Thundering Blue among contenders for the Japan Cup

Last year's Irish Derby and St Leger winner Capri has been installed as a 12-1 shot with Coral for the Japan Cup after the international runners for the Group 1 contest were announced.

The Aidan O'Brien-trained four-year-old will be joined on Sunday week by the David Menuisier-trained Thundering Blue, who finished second in the Canadian International at Woodbine last month.

Mackinnon Stakes runner-up Latrobe, trained by O'Brien's son Joseph, was under consideration for the Japan Cup but will not travel to Tokyo.
