LOGOTYPE (Tsuyoshi Tanaka/Mirco Demuro) beat odds-on favourite Codino to lift Japan's championship event for juveniles.

Codino was sent-off the red-hot 30-100 favourite and went down fighting, failing by a neck to see off the late surge of the 34-1 winner, with Gottfried, under Christophe Soumillon, taking third. 

Demuro said: "My colt broke well and settled in a good position behind Codino. I have always believed in his ability after he won in record time at Tokyo. Today's distance was perfect."

Tanaka added: "He is very clever. He eats and sleeps well after every training session. He has some growing up to do and there should be more to come."
