Hoping (11) Plikclone can be the first of a Zac Purton double tonight. He won back-to-back Class 5 races at Sha Tin before tackling a Class 4 last start where he ran 2nd. He goes up in weight a bit tonight as he returns to Happy Valley, but that means he gets the services of Purton. He’s drawn midfield in barrier 7 and I think he has to be a bet tonight with all things considered.

The obvious danger looks to be (5) Peak To Peak who went close last start an draws ideally in barrier 4.

Tip: (11) Plikclone $4.40 Ladbrokes

Betting Strategy: 1 unit WIN Plikclone

The other leg of the Zac Purton double is (3) Maldives who had the race shot to bits last start before ducking in and nearly throwing Purton off half way down the straight. He still managed to run 3rd but had he run straight he would have won, no doubt in my mind. Happy to back him again tonight with an ideal draw in barrier 2, which is the most successful draw over this track and distance.

Tip: (3) Maldives $3.70 Sportsbet

Betting Strategy: 1.5 units WIN Maldives

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.
