Happy Valley horse racing tips
Race 1. (20:15) Wan Chai Gap C5 Handicap (1650m)
#1 – Ka Ying Brilliance – Bet Now
The five-year-old is only a one-race winner but he is coming off a handy second placing at Sha Tin last start. He was only a head away from the winner, which is a good form guide for the son of Canford Cliffs.
It had been a tough run of outs for Ka Ying Brilliance, but with that run under his belt, the confidence levels should be high.
Race 2. (20:45) Tai Yuen C4 Handicap (1200m)
#11 – General Trump – Bet Now
The four-year-old gets the services of Joao Moreira and that’s going to help his chances. He is a son of Rothesay which was too good for them two starts back at Sha Tin.
That performance was backed up with a second placing at Sha Tin, and although four lengths behind the winner, he ran well with 60.5kg on his back. He drops to 51.5kg here.
Race 3. (21:15) Thomson C4 Handicap (1650m)
#1 – Dor Dor – Bet Now
Dor Dor is always worth backing and despite running seventh last start, he was only 1.7 lengths behind the winner. The John Size-trained runner was a half-length winner three back, before running second at Happy Valley two back.
He draws barrier three for this run and he’s going to get every chance with Moreira in the saddle. The last time the pair combined, Dor Dor scored a win on this track.
It bodes well for a big effort on Wednesday night.
Race 4. (21:45) Tai Yuen C4 Handicap (1200m)
#4 – Compassion Star – Bet Now
Compassion Star is in good form this season, which includes a recent win and three minor placings. The Manfred Man-trained gelding scored at Happy Valley two back by 2.5 lengths, which was a very good effort.
The six-year-old backed that up with a second placing last month, which bodes well for a good run this time in.
Zac Purton rides and he only needs a touch of luck from barrier 10.
Race 5. (22:15) Johnston C3 Handicap (1200m)
#7 – Street Scream – Bet Now
David Hall trains the three-year-old that is having his first Hong Kong start. The former Australian won on debut at Wyong by three lengths before placing at Gosford behind Sneaky Fella.
That came in August of last year, so he has been off the scene for a while now. However, he looked fit in work and this race is there for the taking.
Matthew Poon takes the ride and takes 1kg off his back.
Race 6. (22:45) Thomson C4 Handicap (1650m)
#9 – Everyone’s Elite – Bet Now
Everyone’s Elite is getting close to a win after rattling off five consecutive placings. The son of Dalakhani finished a head behind the winner at Happy Valley last start, which bodes well this time around.
He deserves a win and he gets conditions to suit, with barrier five and only 54kg on his back. It’s another good ride for Joao Moreira, and he could have a big night.
Race 7. (23:15) Johnson C3 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Massive Pocket – Bet Now
Massive Pocket is coming off a 1.5-length win at Happy Valley and he could go back-to-back with any luck. The six-year-old is a professional four-time winner from 24 starts, with another seven placings to his name.
Securing the inside barrier is ideal and the more he races at Happy Valley, the better he’s going to get. He should be tough to beat against a field that doesn’t have much winning form.
Race 8. (23:50) Queensway C3 Handicap (1800m)
#6 – Naboo Star – Bet Now
With two wins from his last three starts, Naboo Star is every chance of winning again. The five-year-old scored by 1.3 lengths three starts back before winning by 1.5 lengths last start.
He has turned his form around brilliantly this season, and from barrier two, he should go close to winning once again.
