Demuro added to his victories in the Japanese 2,000 Guineas race in 2003 and 2004.

Logotype, who was the favourite in a field of 18, broke the Group One race record with a time of 1min 58secs on firm going at Nakayama Racecourse.

The colt took half a second off the old Satsuki-sho mark held by No Reason.

Epiphaneia came in second, a half-length of the pace, with Codino in third, a further length and a quarter back.
