The Hong Kong Jockey Club has granted Whyte permission to partner the Chris Waller-trained Boban in the 1400m weight-for-age feature.

Boban will be first-up in the Orr Stakes and has had two barrier trials last month in Sydney. The six-year-old last raced when finishing last of nine in the Group I Darley Classic over 1200m at Flemington on November 7.

Whyte is expected back in Hong Kong on Sunday for the Sha Tin meeting.
