Happy Valley horse racing tips
Race 1. (21:45) Mut Wah C4 Handicap (1200m)
#8 – Wins All – Bet @ Sportsbet
Wins All comes off four consecutive placings and two of those came at Sha Tin, so he has plenty of ability.
The So-trained five-year-old scored a two-length win at Happy Valley earlier this season and his form has been steady since.
Zac Purton rides and he only needs luck from the wide draw.
Race 2. (22:15) Mut Wah C4 Handicap (1200m)
#5 – Everyone’s Victory – Bet @ Sportsbet
Everyone’s Victory enters with some solid trial form and the booking of Zac Purton is a leading guide for punters.
The son of Deep Field is from the powerful Frankie Lor stables and there has been solid betting support since markets opened.
Expect a tidy debut run from the three-year-old.
Race 3. (22:45) Wai Yip C5 Handicap (1000m)
#4 – Ready Conqueror – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old owns a win and a placing from 12 starts, which is good enough form for this contest.
He scored the win two starts back at Happy Valley and he followed it with a 1.5-length fourth in January. That form should be right in the mix and it’s not an overly impressive field.
Barrier two is ideal and he has every chance to win.
Race 4. (23:15) Mut Wah C4 Handicap (1200m)
#11 – Plikclone – Bet @ Sportsbet
Plikclone improved his form significantly last preparation when scoring back-to-back wins at Sha Tin.
The five-year-old son of Burgundy has yet to finish in the first three in all seven attempts at Happy Valley. However, he enjoyed success in some solid races last preparation.
It’s another key booking for Zac Purton and with only 54kg on his back, he has plenty of upside.
Race 5. (23:45) Hoi Yuen C3 Handicap (1650m)
#5 – Looking Great – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking Great is a former Australian that scored wins at Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast before being sold to Hong Kong.
The son of Holy Roman Emperor hasn’t been far away in two starts to date at Sha Tin, so racing at Happy Valley could work the trick.
Punters could get each-way odds and we recommend taking them.
Race 6. (00:15) Hung To C3 Handicap (2200m)
#7 – Charity Fun – Bet @ Sportsbet
Charlie Shum lines up the four-year-old gelding that ran well for fourth at Happy Valley last time out.
The son of War Command looked good in Ireland before being sold, which included a two-length win at Fairyhouse.
He was always going to need the resuming run and rising to 2200m looks ideal for the stayer.
Race 7. (00:45) Tsun Yip C4 Handicap (1650m)
#4 – V Chevaliers – Bet @ Sportsbet
V Chevaliers owns three wins and four placings from 16 starts and all three wins have come at Happy Valley.
The six-year-old son of Ocean Park has figured in the finish in seven of his 10 starts on this track, and getting the inside draw is ideal.
Punters should get each-way odds and they will be worth taking.
Race 8. (01:15) Hip Wo C3 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Scores of Fun – Bet @ Sportsbet
The John Size-trained four-year-old has been around the mark throughout his career and it’s tough to overlook his recent form.
He has yet to miss a win or placing from six attempts at Happy Valley and his 1.5-length win on the track in January is a good betting guide.
Karis Teetan rides and he could get the job done.
Race 9. (01:50) Hip Wo C3 Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Igniting – Bet @ Sportsbet
Igniting scored by two lengths at Happy Valley two starts and a repeat of that performance would be good enough.
He was the beaten $1.57 favourite last start, but he was only 1.3 lengths behind the winner. It was a solid effort and getting the inside draw is ideal this Wednesday.
