Recap by phillip woo

Plunged late, Harmony And Rich took control passing the 180m after settling one off in second behind the leader Super Axiom for a second win from his past three starts. It was a strong effort carrying top weight but expect him to find things harder next start in Class Two. Larson just held on for second after a box-seat run. He ran another honest race but has trouble winning. Heart Conquered closed well after a rail run in midfield to nearly take second. It was a good performance at his second start back following a head injury in November. Favourite Brilliant Fortune stayed on all right without ever looking a winning chance following a one-off run in midfield. A switch in course failed to pan out after two eye-catching seconds over the straight 1,000m. Harrier Jet ran on steadily from behind midfield to pick up a minor cheque. It wasn't a bad effort returning to Class Three over a shorter trip. Momentum Galaxy made good headway late near the inside after spotting them a huge lead from a wide draw. He had an excuse.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (631) - BABINGTON HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000Meters



FALCON TURBO was slow to begin.

ELON began only fairly and shifted in on jumping, resulting in ELON being awkwardly placed close to the heels of HEART CONQUERED.

NORDIC WELLSTAR began awkwardly.

FABULOUS EIGHT stumbled at the start.

When being steadied from the outside barrier to obtain cover shortly after the start, MOMENTUM GALAXY was checked away from the heels of EIGHT TRIGRAMS which shifted out.

Approaching the 800 Metres, EIGHT TRIGRAMS was bumped and taken wider by NORDIC WELLSTAR which was taken out by ELON.

H T Mo (EIGHT TRIGRAMS) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that approaching and passing the 600 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in, resulting in NORDIC WELLSTAR and ELON racing unnecessarily tight inside EIGHT TRIGRAMS and outside FALCON TURBO and then approaching the 500 Metres he failed to make sufficient endeavours to prevent his mount from shifting in which resulted in EIGHT TRIGRAMS bumping NORDIC WELLSTAR, causing NORDIC WELLSTAR to be taken across the rightful running of ELON which was checked.

In the circumstances, H T Mo was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Wednesday, 5 May 2021 and to expire on Sunday, 9 May 2021 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

Approaching the 50 Metres, HARRIER JET was shifted out away from the heels of SUPER AXIOM to continue improving.

Passing the 50 Metres, BRILLIANT FORTUNE commenced to shift in under pressure, resulting in its rider having to stop riding and correct his mount.

Over the final 50 Metres, FALCON TURBO had difficulty obtaining clear running and close to the finishing line was awkwardly placed behind HEART CONQUERED.

Consequently FALCON TURBO was not able to be ridden out all the way to the end of the race.

A veterinary inspection of ELON immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of NORDIC WELLSTAR immediately following the race found that horse to be lame in its right front leg.
