Happy Valley horse racing tips
Race 1. (20:45) Briar C5 Handicap (1650m)
#4 – Jimmu – Bet @ Sportsbet
Jimmu is only a one-race winner, but the six-year-old comes off a second placing at Sha Tin and that form bodes well.
The son of Dalakhani was only a length behind the winner and he gets the services of Joao Moreira, so he should be right in the mix.
Expect late betting support to come his way.
Race 2. (21:15) Briar C5 Handicap (1650m)
#2 – Seize the Spirit – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Tsui-trained six-year-old comes off some tough races and he should appreciate dropping to this class.
He finished fourth behind Light of Wanshi before running fourth behind Fox Cheunger, which should be a good form guide going forward.
Barrier 11 isn’t ideal but it’s another plum ride for Moreira.
Race 3. (21:45) Broom C4 Handicap (1200m)
#8 – Fire Ball – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old gelding hasn’t been too far away to date, including a win and five minor placings. He comes off back-to-back second placings, so he’s knocking on the door.
The son of Burgundy won at Happy Valley in March and although Moreira has jumped off his back, having Zac Purton riding isn’t a negative.
Expect short odds on race night.
Race 4. (22:15) Green Lane C4 Handicap (1650m)
#4 – Savvy Kingman – Bet @ Sportsbet
Savvy Kingman has finished out of the money in only one of his five career starts at Happy Valley, so we like his chances here.
The son of Kingman scored by one length two back and followed it up with a solid second placing behind Red Majesty. There is a lot to like about that form and Moreira rides.
Punters should expect money to come for him throughout the day.
Race 5. (22:45) The Sauternes C4 Cup (1000m)
#7 – Oversubscribed – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old is a three-time winner from 17 starts and two of those wins have come this preparation.
He scored a narrow win last start and it bodes well for a good performance on Wednesday. The five-year-old is capable of handling this class and punters get value odds.
Blake Shinn rides and he only needs early luck from the barriers.
Race 6. (23:15) Broom C4 Handicap (1200m)
#4 – Management Supreme – Bet @ Sportsbet
Management Supreme loves racing at Happy Valley and with eight starts for a win and three placings, he could add to his record.
The four-year-old comes off a fresh-up second placing where he went down by a nose. There is plenty to like about that effort and the early betting support is there.
Drawing barrier three is a positive and Karis Teetan rides.
Race 7. (23:45) Hawthorn C3 Handicap (1200m)
#8 – The Runner – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Runner got the job done nicely three back and there is plenty of value with bookmakers. He was only 1.8 lengths behind the winner and he only needs luck to go close.
Barrier 12 isn’t going to make it easy but Derek Leung is a capable jockey and this race is there for the taking.
Race 8. (00:15) Hawthorn C3 Handicap (1200m)
#9 – Telecom Smart – Bet @ Sportsbet
Telecom Smart has been in work since December and the four-year-old son of Smart Missile continues to run well.
He is a three-time winner from 19 starts and one of those wins came two starts back at Happy Valley. He won by 1.3 lengths and that form bodes well.
Getting in with only 54kg on his back is ideal.
Race 9. (00:50) Holly C3 Handicap (1650m)
#6 – Everyone’s Delight – Bet @ Sportsbet
Coming off a win at Happy Valley is Everyone’s Delight, which scored impressively by 2.5 lengths.
The four-year-old owns three wins from 10 starts and although rising in class won’t be easy, he jumps off the inside draw with Purton riding.
The Kiwi-bred runner runs at each-way odds and punters should take the value.
