(2) Master Albert drops into Class 5 for the first time and comes into tonight fresh from a let up. No surprise if they’ve targeted this race for him as soon as he dropped enough points to be eligible for this class. Comes up with barrier 1 which over the 1200m on the C+3 course is premium (26% strike rate). Each way.

Tip: (2) Master Albert E/W $7.00/$2.75 Bet365

Betting Strategy: 0.5 units WIN/1 unit PLACE Master Albert

(7) Joyful Genius has had plenty of chances, with seven placings from 12 starts, but I think this is his race tonight. Finally they step him up to 1650m and he comes up with a low draw, so should get a charmed run throughout. Purton sticks with him and if he can’t get the job done here, he’ll struggle to win one any time soon.

Main danger looks to be (10) Go For Tea ($6.00) with Moreira riding for Frankie Lor. Draws barrier 2 which is a big plus.

Tip: (7) Joyful Genius $4.00 Moneyball

Saver: (10) Go For Tea $6.00 PlayUp

Betting Strategy: 1.25 units WIN Joyful Genius, 0.25 units WIN Go For Tea

Unfortunately I missed the $7.50 they went up for (3) Happy Forever. Beaten a nose two starts ago and then disappointing when starting $3.20 last start. Sha Tin form normally holds up here so expecting he’ll be very hard to beat at his first start at Happy Valley with Purton sticking with him.

Tip: (3) Happy Forever $4.60 Bet365

Betting Strategy: 1 unit WIN Happy Forever

Thought Nervous Witness might be favourite here but getting to the top of Class 2 with top weight can find him out. He meets (8) Stoltz again who drew inside him down the straight at Sha Tin last start and was brave in defeat. Gets a weight swing for that meeting and if he’s quick enough out of the gates he might force Nervous Witness to box seat?

Tip: (8) Stoltz $2.80 Bet365

Betting Strategy: 1 unit WIN Stoltz

A trip to Hong Kong quickly had Tim hooked to the racing caper, maintaining the best place anywhere in the world on a Wednesday night is Happy Valley. He holds a strong interest in the Hong Kong form, along with the metropolitan racing in Sydney and Melbourne. He’s a fan of dry tracks, Zac Purton and takes particular interest in identifying patterns in the form. Tim wears many hats, juggling the roles of form analyst, jockey manager and racehorse owner.
