Happy Valley horse racing tips
Race 1. (20:45) Ventris C5 Handicap (1800m)
#2 – Hay Run – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hay Run is an experienced five-time winner that could get back to winning form on Wednesday.
The eight-year-old son of Delightful Choice won last November and hasn’t won since, but he ran second three back and that form is good enough.
Expect each-way odds on race day.
Race 2. (21:15) Link C5 Handicap (1000m)
#8 – Chungwa Jingshen – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old son of Rubick owns one win from 18 starts, but he is knocking on the door after finishing second at Happy Valley last start.
He was 2.3 lengths behind the winner and it could be an indication of what’s to come. He’s good enough to figure in the finish of this race and having Karis Teetan in the saddle helps.
Barrier 11 isn’t ideal but he’s worth sticking with.
Race 3. (21:45) Sung Tak C4 Handicap (1200m)
#3 – Ice Legend – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ice Legend comes off back-to-back placings and the four-year-old gelding won’t take long to score his maiden win.
The son of Whittington didn’t fire when finishing six lengths behind the winner on debut, but he turned his form around this campaign with solid efforts.
Racing at Happy Valley has helped and we fancy his chances.
Race 4. (22:15) Sung Tak C4 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Island Shine – Bet @ Sportsbet
Island Shine is getting close to posting his fourth career win after placing at Happy Valley his last two starts.
The five-year-old owns three wins and 10 placings from 28 stars, so he’s consistent enough and it’s not the strongest field we have ever seen.
Karis Teetan rides and punters should get value odds.
Race 5. (22:45) Hau Tak C4 Handicap (1650m)
#3 – Super Fast – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Lui-trained five-year-old comes off an impressive four-length win at Sha Tin and he’s capable of going back-to-back.
He owns two wins from 16 starts and his most recent effort suggests he’s capable of kicking on with it now. He justified his favouritism tag and we expect money to come for him again.
Jerry Chau takes 2.5kg off his back to help with the weight.
Race 6. (23:15) Oi Kwan C3 Handicap (1800m)
#8 – Exceptional Nice – Bet @ Sportsbet
Exceptional Nice is getting close to posting a win after three consecutive second placings, so we’re prepared to follow him.
The son of Tavistock is rarely too far away from the pace and he has pushed some solid types close of late, which is a good sign for this race.
Carrying 55.5kg is ideal and it should see him competitive once again.
Race 7. (23:45) Broadwood C3 Handicap (1000m)
#6 – Brilliant Fortune – Bet @ Sportsbet
Brilliant Fortune has made a nice start to his career and the former Australian is capable of handling this field.
The four-year-old won on debut at Hawkesbury by two lengths before going to Hong Kong and scoring three placings from four starts.
He deserves a win and having Joao Moreira in the saddle doesn’t hurt his chances.
Race 8. (00:15) Wong Nai Chung C2 Handicap (1650m)
#11 – Hall of Champ – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hall of Champ has won twice already this campaign and he is good enough to add another win to the list.
The five-year-old son of Dark Angel owns five wins and six placings overall, so he’s capable and punters should get each-way odds to enjoy on race night.
Race 9. (00:50) Sports Road C2 Handicap (1200m)
#4 – Sparkling Dragon – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Tony Millard-trained six-year-old comes off a narrow win at Happy Valley and we like his chances to score again.
He capped off solid form with the victory and his fitness levels have increased having had two starts this preparation.
Punters get lovely each-way odds to enjoy and we’re happy to take them.
