Happy Valley horse racing tips
Race 1. (22:15) Tai Wai C5 Handicap (1200m)
#7 – Run Run Good – Bet @ Sportsbet
Punters will be hoping Run Run Good runs good on Wednesday night. The five-year-old owns three placings from 15 starts, including two on this track.
The son of Grand Reward was only a nose behind the winner two back before going well again last start, so he’s knocking on the door.
It’s not a hard field and having Joao Moreira in the saddle is ideal.
Race 2. (22:45) Fo Tan C1 Handicap (1650m)
#5 – Silver Express – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking for back-to-back wins is Silver Express, who was far too good for a nice field at Sha Tin.
The five-year-old son of Canford Cliffs owns five wins from 11 starts, so he’s a classy type and most of the early money has come for him.
The former Australian, who recorded wins at Flemington and Sandown, looks well-placed to continue winning.
Race 3. (23:15) Siu Lek Yuen C4 Handicap (1800m)
#7 – Toycoon – Bet @ Sportsbet
Most of the early money has come for Toycoon, who has finished second twice already this preparation.
The six-year-old gelding doesn’t win all that often with two wins from 27 starts, but he’s not facing an overly tough field.
Running a half-length behind the winner last start is a good form guide and it’s another premium ride for Moreira.
It could pay to watch for late betting moves.
Race 4. (23:45) Tin Sam C5 Handicap (1650m)
#9 – Lucky Victor – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lucky Victor looked good when winning at Sha Tin two starts back by 1.8 lengths, so a repeat of that would be good enough.
The five-year-old son of Champions Gallery followed it up with a fourth behind Speed Force. That form stacks up well here and he owns two wins on the track, so he enjoys Sha Tin.
Drawing barrier two is ideal and punters should expect another top effort at each-way odds.
Race 5. (00:15) Shing Mun River Channel C4 (1650m)
#1 – Solar Power – Bet @ Sportsbet
Solar Power comes off a narrow victory at Sha Tin and we like his chances of repeating the dose.
The five-year-old son of Kingman followed up his win three starts back which came by 2.8 lengths, so the quality performances are there.
Getting a 3kg claimer to ride helps and we expect him to be right in the thick of the action.
Race 6. (00:45) Sha Tin Wai C4 Handicap (1200m)
#3 – Everyone’s Victory – Bet @ Sportsbet
Frankie Lor lines up the son of Deep Field who hasn’t done much wrong in four starts this season.
He scored a 2.3-length win at Sha Tin two back and followed it with a second placing behind Flying Dragon, which is excellent form.
Drawing barrier 12 could make it tough, but punters should get value odds and they’re worth taking.
Race 7. (01:15) Sha Tin Hoi C3 Handicap (1650m)
#3 – Ultra Express – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ultra Express has the form on the board and the son of Power will be heavily backed on race night.
The five-year-old owns four wins and five placings from 12 starts, so he doesn’t know how to run a bad race.
He is always well-supported with bookmakers and with Moreira in the saddle, we don’t expect this to be any different.
Race 8. (01:50) Pai Tau C3 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Czarson – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old isn’t always the most consistent type going around, but he has been well-supported.
He comes off a couple of tidy performances for fourth, including a narrow defeat at Sha Tin in November.
With a win and four placings from 10 starts on the track, he goes well enough to bet on.
