RYAN MOORE will make a frantic 10,700-mile dash across the world for four rides at the Curragh on Sunday.
Moore, who won last weekend's St Leger on Continuous, will rack up the air miles after racing in Sydney on Saturday.
The big ride is on Coolmore's Shinzo in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes at Rosehill racecourse at 7am UK time.
Moore, who partnered Shinzo to a £1.6million victory in March's Golden Slipper, is booked for four rides on Saturday, including on the former Irish Cesarewitch winner Mr Waterville, who was known just as Waterville then.
According to Sky Scanner, Moore can hop on a 9.10pm flight from Sydney – nine hours ahead of Dublin – on Saturday night.
That gets to Dubai at 5.40am on Sunday morning. From there he'll jump on the 7.20am flight for a further seven hours and 55 minutes before landing in Dublin at 12.15pm.
The journey from the airport to the Curragh will take around 50 minutes.

Moore is booked to ride Gasper De Lemos in the 1.50pm contest on Sunday, so it will be tight whether he makes it on time.
Should he have to miss that ride because he doesn't arrive in time then his next race will be in the contest after at 2.25pm.
Moore is down to ride Content in the Group 3 Weld Park Stakes before he hopes on Aesop's Fables in another Group 3 at 3pm.

After that it's the big one where he'll look to land the Irish Cesarewitch on possible Melbourne Cup hopeful Tower Of London.
That horse was a good fourth in the St Leger and is currently 8-1 favourite to scoop the £280,000 prize.
Moore, who has not raced since last Sunday, will then have a couple of days off before he heads to Goodwood for two rides on Wednesday.
It's then onto Newmarket on Thursday before another flight to Paris for the Arc on Sunday, where he is expected to be reunited with Continuous.
