Recap by phillip woo

Momentum Galaxy quickened nicely through a gap 100m out to take control 30m out following a one-off run in midfield. He's very well suited at this level and goes very well first up. Well-backed Fabulous Eight found one too good in the end after getting his own way in front. He relished a return to the Valley after an even 1,000m effort on opening day. Ka Ying Spirit kept on gamely for third after slotting one-out, one-back passing the 800m. It was a solid effort trying the Valley for the first time after a debut win at Sha Tin. Favourite Party Warrior got going late to finish a non-threatening fourth after travelling deep with cover worse than midfield. He had to cover ground but is crying out for a longer trip. Noir Rider was only plodding when hampered close to home following a prominent run. He's not far off a bottom after two positive efforts this season. Regency Star ran on without menacing settling second last from a wide draw. He's still learning the rope but has shown improvement in his two starts this term. Super Commander faded over the final 150m after settling box-seat. He's disappointed in both starts this term.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (50) - HENDERSON HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000Meters

SIMPLE DOCTRINE began only fairly and shifted out towards the heels of SUPER COMMANDER, resulting in SIMPLE DOCTRINE losing ground.

MOMENTUM GALAXY shifted out at the start and bumped NOIR RIDER.

REGENCY STAR shifted in at the start and bumped KA YING SPIRIT which became unbalanced.

After this, from a wide barrier, REGENCY STAR was shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

From the outside barrier, TRAVEL DATUK was also steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners to obtain a position closer to the rail.

Passing the 700 Metres, EUROMISSILE got its head up on a number of occasions when racing keenly and awkwardly placed close to the heels of NOIR RIDER.

Then making the turn after the 600 Metres, EUROMISSILE became unbalanced and stumbled when crowded for room between PARTY WARRIOR and SIMPLE DOCTRINE which got its head on the side and made the turn awkwardly.

Approaching the 600 Metres, PARTY WARRIOR was left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the 300 Metres, MOMENTUM GALAXY was awkwardly placed behind CHEVAL VALIANT.

Z Purton (KA YING SPIRIT) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that over the concluding stages he failed to take sufficient measures to prevent his mount from shifting out, resulting in NOIR RIDER being unnecessarily crowded for room and losing the running to which it was rightfully entitled after being crowded for room between KA YING SPIRIT and PARTY WARRIOR which was bumped by NOIR RIDER.

Z Purton was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Sunday, 10 October 2021 and to expire on Thursday, 14 October 2021 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays.

In assessing penalty, the Stewards took into account Jockey Purton's good race riding record.

When NOIR RIDER was hampered, REGENCY STAR, which was following and held up for clear running, was shifted in away from the heels of that horse and then was not able to obtain clear running close to the finishing line.

Because of this, REGENCY STAR was unable to be tested over the final 50 Metres.
