Happy Valley horse racing tips
Race 1. (20:45) Wing Lok C5 Handicap (1000m)
#1 – Valiant Elegance – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old gelding has rattled off four consecutive third placings and he deserves a winning turn.
He comes off a 1.1-length third at Sha Tin and he has finished under a length from the winner in two of his last three starts.
Jerry Chau takes 2.5kg off his back and that should see him run close.
Race 2. (21:15) Jervois C4 Handicap (1000m)
#2 – Amazing Rocky – Bet @ Sportsbet
The son of Bel Esprit owns three placings from six career starts and he should get close to this field.
He finished second by a half-length at Happy Valley last start and that was his best career finish. Getting experience on this track is ideal and Zac Purton takes the ride.
Barrier one is ideal and he looks the goods.
Race 3. (21:45) Morrison C4 Handicap (1200m)
#6 – Beauty Cheers – Bet @ Sportsbet
Beauty Cheers comes off some tough races and there has been solid betting support throughout the week.
The John Size-trained four-year-old finished third two starts back at Sha Tin and although beaten last start, he’s better than that.
Getting Joao Moreira in the saddle is ideal and he could make the difference.
Race 4. (22:15) Rumsey C4 Handicap (1650m)
#10 – Sun of Makfi – Bet @ Sportsbet
Getting into this race with 51.5kg on his back is ideal and that could make the difference on Wednesday night.
The Hall-trained four-year-old has been close to winning this preparation, including a third placing at Happy Valley two starts back.
Barrier three is ideal and he should start as one of the favorites.
Race 5. (22:45) Morrison C4 Handicap (1200m)
#4 – Noble Desire – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to go back-to-back is Noble Desire, which took 20 starts to break maidens and he could kick on with it now.
The five-year-old gelding scored a narrow win at each-way odds and it capped off solid efforts over the course of the season.
He has been in work for a long time and his fitness edge could make the difference.
Race 6. (23:15) Wellington C4 Handicap (1800m)
#5 – Bright Vision – Bet @ Sportsbet
Bright Vision is knocking on the door after three consecutive placings and we wouldn’t leave him off our ticket.
The five-year-old son of O’Reilly finished only a nose behind the winner last start and his best form comes at Happy Valley.
Punters should expect value odds.
Race 7. (23:45) Cleverly C3 Handicap (1200m)
#7 – Ever Force – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ever Force was good enough to win back-to-back races at Happy Valley this preparation before running third last time out.
The three-year-old has been heavily backed in his last three runs and he should be tough to beat with only 54kg on his back.
Karis Teetan rides and that should make a difference.
Race 8. (00:15) Cleverly C3 Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Kinda Cool – Bet @ Sportsbet
Kinda Cool owns three wins and two placings from nine starts at Happy Valley, so he’s always around the mark.
The four-year-old son of Per Incanto finished 1.5 lengths behind the winner last start and he’s capable of turning that result around.
It’s another good ride for Zac Purton and punters get value odds.
Race 9. (00:50) Hillier C3 Handicap (1650m)
#1 – Beauty Fit – Bet @ Sportsbet
Beauty Fit owns three wins from seven starts and he’s capable of improving that record. He comes off a win at Sha Tin and the four-year-old is a talented type.
The son of Ilovethiscity is a former Australian that was unbeaten in two starts. He looked like a world beater in Australia, but has taken time to mature in Hong Kong.
He could rise through the grades and be tough to beat here.
