John Moore got that monkey off his back along with his safari suit by winning on foreign soil with one of his runners. And what a win it was, too with Zac Purton launching a brilliant Zac Attack on Military Attack in the Krisflyer International Cup which practically jogged home- not that this was a sit and street job.

This was Zac Purton, a truly world class jockey, in the zone, the best jockey riding in Hong Kong and totally in sync with a brilliant horse.

Where to next for Military Attack? Anywhere really and let’s not forget that John Moore quinella-d the race with the very consistent Dan Excel. That’s the good news.

What isn’t good news is that many in Hong Kong never watched the win of Lucky Nine and the launching of another Zac Attack on Raziyya Sydney for Michael Freedman.

When advertising or reporting that these ‘live’ simulcasts will be shown on ATV, specify which ATV and if it’s this mysterious ATV Digital, tell us where it is. Don’t turn it into Where In The World Is Santiago.

As a terrestrial station, ATV is not exactly a station that attracts a great audience. And to watch its programming on ATV World from 5.30pm as reported and to finally see JoJo McKinnon and Michael Cox appear on screens and tell us what we missed seeing- especially the win of Lucky Nine and Caspar Fownes and Brett Prebble also flying the Hong Kong flag in the Krisflyer International Sprint- is short-changing local racing fans and quite loony.

Days like this don’t happen every day for Hong Kong racing and to miss out on one of its two great successes is sloppy promotion and amateurish communications.
