Happy Valley horse racing tips
Race 1. (20:45) Tai Hang C4 Handicap (2200m)
#4 – Gala Night – Bet Now
The John Moore-trained three-year-old scored back-to-back wins earlier this preparation, including a win at Happy Valley.
He’s a son of Dissident that returned to form when running third at Sha Tin and drawing barrier two should see him land on the speed.
Punters should be getting each-way odds.
Race 2. (21:15) Wan Chai C5 Handicap (1800m)
#2 – Victorious Seeker – Bet Now
The Paul O’Sullivan-trained gelding is knocking on the door after placing at his last five starts. He ran second at Sha Tin last start and prior to that he showed good form on this track.
Joao Moreira takes the ride for the third consecutive race and that’s only going to help his chances. He draws well in barrier two and we’re expecting a tidy effort.
Race 3. (21:45) Quarry Bay C4 Handicap (1650m)
#6 – Everyone’s Elite – Bet Now
Everyone’s Elite keeps finding one better but we’re prepared to give him another chance. The Manfred Man-trained gelding has rattled off six consecutive second placings, which isn’t easy to do.
It’s good to see Moreira sticking with the son of Dalakhani and although punters have been burned this season, a win shouldn’t be too far away.
Back him to win and have a saver on the place.
Race 4. (22:15) North Point C4 Handicap (1200m)
#7 – Simply Fluke – Bet Now
Coming off a win at Happy Valley, Simply Fluke has every chance to double down on that effort. The Douglas Whyte-trained gelding rises in weight here, but he’s able to handle it.
He has been in the money in four of his 10 starts and it’s another cracking ride for Joao Moreira, who could end the night with a big tally.
Watch for any late betting moves for this runner.
Race 5. (22:45) North Point C4 Handicap (1200m)
#7 – Wood on Fire – Bet Now
Wood on Fire has been going close this season and he could finally get over the line. The four-year-old has scored three consecutive placings, which have all come at this track.
The son of Per Incanto was within a length of the winner in two of those three placings and drawing barrier three helps his chances.
Bookmakers should be offering nice odds.
Race 6. (23:15) Fortress Hill C3 Handicap (1650m)
#6 – Flash Famous – Bet Now
Frankie Lor lines up the five-year-old gelding that scored consecutive wins before finishing second at Happy Valley last start.
The son of Ilovethiscity scored by 1.5 lengths two starts back and although beaten last start, he wasn’t all that far away.
It’s another terrific ride for Moreira and he can make the difference.
Race 7. (23:45) Causeway Bay C3 Handicap (1200m)
#5 – Victoram – Bet Now
Victoram has made a nice start to his career, which includes three wins and three placings from 10 starts.
The Lui-trained runner is coming off a one-length win at Sha Tin and that form is going to hold up very nicely for this race.
Joao Moreira jumps off his back, which is surprising, but Victoram looks tough to hold out.
Race 8. (00:15) Fortress Hill C3 Handicap (1650m)
#1 – Cinquante Cinq – Bet Now
Cinquante Cinq didn’t fire when seventh last start but he’s better than that and improvement should be on the cards this Wednesday.
The five-year-old son of Tavistock has finished in the money in seven of his 10 starts, which includes three wins. His most recent win came on this track in January when he scored by two lengths.
A repeat of that effort would take him close.
Race 9. (00:50) Causeway Bay C3 Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Super Commander – Bet Now
Super Commander is having his first run in Hong Kong after showing good form in South Africa. The Tony Millard-trained colt hasn’t raced for nearly a year, so betting will hold the key.
However, the in-form Karis Teetan takes the ride and from barrier two he should be able to settle handy and show a good kick.
