Odds Last Updated: December 22, 2021, 9:47pm (AEDT)

Small bet to start the night on (1) Daily Beauty, who draws the inside pole and drops into Class 5 for the first time in his career. He’s a three-time winner in Class 4 so if he’s anywhere near his best, he’ll be giving this a mighty shake. Ran the fastest final 400m of the race last start so he appears to be going OK. The jockey doesn’t fill me with huge amounts of confidence but hopefully the draw makes it slightly easier for him.

Tip: (1) Daily Beauty $6.00/$2.25 Sportsbet

(9) Lucky Archangel is another that looks suited tonight from the inside draw. He’s drawn wide his past two starts but has finished off well. He ran 3rd at Sha Tin two starts ago before a midfield finish last start, but did run sub-23sec final 400m, the second quickest of the race. Now draws the inside gate and with a decent ride he should go close.

Tip: (9) Lucky Archangel $5.00/$2.00 Ladbrokes

Confident that this is (10) Here Comes Ted‘s race tonight. He’s been knocking on the door in recent starts with consecutive placings in Class 4. Now steps up to Class 3 but gets in with 52kg and gets Joao Moreira taking over from Luke Ferraris. On top of all that he draws the inside gate which is a huge plus. Really think this is his race to lose.

Tip: (10) Here Comes Ted $3.10 Neds

Final bet of the night will be (5) Kurpany who is yet another horse that comes up with barrier 1 in a very suitable race. He goes very well at this track and distance, with two wins and two placings from five starts. Has run well in both starts this prep, gets things to suit here and should go close.

Tip: (5) Kurpany $5.00/$1.95 Bet365

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.
