Happy Valley horse racing tips
Race 1. (21:15) Big Wave Bay C5 Handicap (1000m)
#6 – Chunghwa Jingsen – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old gelding is only a one-time winner from 19 starts, but he is knocking on the door after back-to-back placings.
He is a son of Rubick that finished a short margin behind the winner at Happy Valley last start, which should be a good form guide.
Punters often get each-way odds for Chunghwa Jingsen, and having Karis Teetan riding is ideal.
Race 2. (21:45) Chung Hom Kok C4 Handicap (1200m)
#3 – Management Supreme – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old looked good winning three starts back at Happy Valley, and his form last preparation was solid.
He ran second behind a nose in June before running fourth at Happy Valley last July. He typically finds form quickly and he should use the inside draw to his advantage.
Punters should get value odds on race day.
Race 3. (22:15) Deep Water Bay C4 Handicap (1650m)
#7 – Zhan Jiang Rocks – Bet @ Sportsbet
Zhan Jiang Rocks ended last season with consecutive third placings and starting this season with Joao Moreira in the saddle is ideal.
The six-year-old is rarely too far away at Happy Valley, which includes a win and nine placings. His best form takes him close in what is an even field.
Barrier three and 55.5kg should see him run close.
Race 4. (22:45) Chung Hom Kok C4 Handicap (1200m)
#8 – Red Majesty – Bet @ Sportsbet
Red Majesty took 11 starts to break maidens, but he rattled off three consecutive wins to end last season.
The five-year-old son of Ferlax defeated some nice types when winning all three starts at Happy Valley, so that form bodes well for this level of racing.
Karis Teetan rides off the inside draw, so expect a top effort.
Race 5. (23:15) Middle Bay C4 Handicap (1000m)
#4 – Infinity Win – Bet @ Sportsbet
Infinity Win finished second on debut at Sha Tin and he won’t take long to get off the mark this season.
The David Hayes-trained four-year-old was the $2.10 favourite when running behind Summit Cheers, but there’s little wrong with that form.
Zac Purton rides and punters should be confident of his chances.
Race 6. (23:50) The Community Chest Cup C3 (1650m)
#4 – Indicative Vote – Bet @ Sportsbet
Charlie Shum lines up the former European who should enjoy kicking off his campaign over this distance.
The son of Elzaam hasn’t shown his best form since arriving in Hong Kong, but his last-start third placing at Happy Valley was a step in the right direction.
He’s another runner that gets the inside draw with Moreira in the saddle.
Race 7. (00:20) Repulse Bay C3 Handicap (1000m)
#9 – Telecom Smart – Bet @ Sportsbet
Expectations are high for Telecom Smart this season, so we’re expecting a good fresh up effort. He owns two fresh wins from three starts, so he hits the ground running.
The son of Smart Missile is a three-time winner overall who defeated a quality field Happy Valley in June, and that form stacks up well.
Barrier 11 makes it awkward, but he should show good barrier speed and push forward.
Race 8. (00:55) Shek O C3 Handicap (1200m)
#8 – Rhapsody – Bet @ Sportsbet
The John Size-trained son of Hinchinbrook finished second by a nose at his most recent start, so that form should bode well for this race.
He scored one win and three placings from six starts last preparation. Dropping to 53.5kg with Moreira in the saddle helps, so we’re expecting a big effort.
It could pay to watch for late betting moves.
