Happy Valley horse racing tips
Race 1. (20:45) Pok Fu Lam C5 Handicap (1650m)
#9 – Virtus Star – Bet Now
Frankie Lor lines up the four-year-old gelding that has yet to win from 18 starts, but he meets an average field here.
The son of Sebring finished third at Happy Valley two back before running sixth at Sha Tin last start. It is the best form of any runner in this field and he could score an overdue win.
Race 2. (21:15) Kotewall C4 Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Fearless Fire – Bet Now
Fearless Fire produced a good effort to run third at Happy Valley last start and he could build on that effort.
The six-year-old is a three-time winner and eight-time placegetter that could add to his record. He should have his confidence back after the placing and having Zac Purton in the saddle helps.
It could be a winning combination on Wednesday night.
Race 3. (21:45) Kotewall C4 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Xponential – Bet Now
Douglas Whyte lines up Xponential, which isn’t the most consistent but is capable on his day. The son of Equiano ran second fresh up this campaign before finishing ninth as a $5 chance.
He was a winner on debut at Sha Tin and has yet to be tried at Happy Valley, but the easier opposition looks right up his alley.
Expect him to be competitive in this grade.
Race 4. (22:15) Po Shan C5 Handicap (1200m)
#4 – Yee Cheong Lucky – Bet Now
Yee Cheong Lucky was too good last week when scoring by 3.3 lengths and he could go back-to-back.
The five-year-old was miles too good for the opposition on the all-weather surface last start and he looks a good chance to win again.
Matthew Poon takes 1kg off his back and that helps.
Race 5. (22:45) Hatton C4 Handicap (1000m)
#1 – We The South – Bet Now
We The South has done most of his racing at Happy Valley, which includes five starts for two wins and placing.
The three-year-old son of Your Song is coming off a solid performance for fifth where he was only 1.3 lengths behind the winner.
Alfred Chan takes 3kg off his back and that should take him close.
Race 6. (23:15) Lyttelton C4 Handicap (1650m)
#9 – Murray’s Partners – Bet Now
The four-year-old resumed from a spell with a narrow win last start and the break clearly did him some good.
He finished 11th at his most recent start prior to the win, so he needed the break and he scored an upset win at odds last month.
55kg is ideal and he could win again.
Race 7. (23:45) Breezy C3 Handicap (1200m)
#9 – Victory Power – Bet Now
Victory Power is fresh up having finished ninth at his most recent outing in April and he could improve with the time off.
The five-year-old has finished in the money in 14 of his 28 starts and he runs his best races at Happy Valley.
It bodes well for a good run this week.
Race 8. (00:15) Babington C3 Handicap (1000m)
#4 – Aerozoom – Bet Now
Aerozoom is an Australian export that won his last two starts before being sold. The son of Deep Field won his maiden at Seymour before winning at Bendigo.
The wins came in September, so he may need some time to adjust to his new life, but he looks like a nice type in the making.
Getting the inside draw is ideal and that could see him go close.
Race 9. (00:50) Conduit C3 Handicap (1800m)
#3 – Blastoise – Bet Now
The four-year-old has been around the mark for most of his career and he could add to his win tally.
He owns two wins and six placings from 14 starts, so he is consistent and he looks ready to win another race.
Karis Teetan is a good jockey to have in the saddle and punters should get each-way odds.
