GAI Waterhouse has turned to the “Magic Man” Joao Moreira to partner The Galaxy winner Sweet Idea in the Group 1 $2.5 million T.J. Smith Stakes (1200m) at Royal Randwick on Saturday.

Hong Kong-based Moreira takes over from the suspended Blake Shinn on Sweet Idea, who is rated a $8 chance in her showdown with super sprinters Chautauqua, ­Terravista and Lankan Rupee.

Moreira will also ride Waterhouse’s two-year-old Regatta Rebel in the Kindergarten Stakes.

Among the superstar jockey’s other big-race rides on Saturday are the Chris Waller-trained Always Allison in the Sires Produce Stakes and Omeros in the Australian Derby.

Another Hong Kong rider, expatriate Zac Purton, tuned up for Sacred Falls’ bid for a third successive $3 million Doncaster Mile by securing another international Group 1 win on Sunday evening, winning Japan’s Takamatsunomiya Kinen on Aerovelocity.
