Happy Valley horse racing tips
Race 1. (22:15) Jaffe C4 Handicap (2200m)
#1 – Methane – Bet @ Sportsbet
Methane is coming off a quality second placing at Happy Valley and he is capable of going one better on Wednesday.
The five-year-old gelding has figured in the finish in six of his 13 starts and his best efforts have come on this track.
The son of Pierro gets 3kg off his back and that will help.
Race 2. (22:45) O’Brien C5 Handicap (1800m)
#6 – You Have My Word – Bet @ Sportsbet
The nine-year-old isn’t getting any younger but he continues to run well. He finished first past the post fresh up at Sha Tin, before running fourth last start.
The son of Mastercraftsman is a six-time winner that goes well at this distance and punters should get good value with bookmakers.
Race 3. (23:15) Lockhart C5 Handicap (1000m)
#11 – Flying Monkey – Bet @ Sportsbet
Flying Monkey is looking to cap off three consecutive placings with a win and punters should get value odds.
The eight-year-old only has two wins to his name, but with 11 placings, he is rarely too far away from the prize.
Alex Badel takes the ride and carrying 52.5kg helps.
Race 4. (23:45) Gloucester C4 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Pegasus Glory – Bet @ Sportsbet
Form is with Pegasus Glory, which got off the mark with a 1.3-length win at Sha Tin earlier this season.
The Ting-trained four-year-old backed that up with a second placing and we’re expecting that form to hold up nicely.
Early money has come for the son of Wandjina and it could pay to follow the betting moves.
Race 5. (00:15) Gloucester C4 Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Sprint Forward – Bet @ Sportsbet
David Hayes lines up the five-year-old gelding that is capable of producing back-to-back wins.
The son of Lope De Vega scored by a half-length last month and that was with the help of the 3kg apprentice claim. He gets the same claim here and punters get value odds.
He should be able to give punters a good sight throughout the run.
Race 6. (00:45) Fleming C3 Handicap (1000m)
#6 – We The South – Bet @ Sportsbet
We The South has a chance of producing three consecutive wins and we wouldn’t be ruling out his chances on Wednesday.
The Frankie Lor-trained four-year-old owns four wins at Happy Valley and having Joao Moreira in the saddle is a big bonus.
Punters will have to take shorter odds because of it, but he’s the man to have in the saddle.
Race 7. (01:15) Thomson C3 Handicap (1800m)
#1 – Tashidelek – Bet @ Sportsbet
Douglas Whyte lines up the six-year-old gelding has scored two value wins this season and he could add a third.
The son of Street Cry has figured in the finish in eight of his 11 starts at Happy Valley, so he’s a course specialist that should go well again.
Punters should get each-way odds and he only needs a good run throughout to go close.
Race 8. (01:50) Harbour C3 Handicap (1200m)
#6 – Scores Of Fun – Bet @ Sportsbet
Scores Of Fun has shown plenty of potential early in his career, which consists of five starts for two wins and two placings.
The John Size-trained gelding scored back-to-back wins to open his career and although beaten since, he went close at Happy Valley last start.
Joao Moreira takes the ride and we’re confident of a good showing.
