Happy Valley Racing Tips

Racing returns to Happy Valley in Hong Kong on Wednesday night, where the nine-race card gets underway at 9.45pm AEDT.

Racing is on the C+3 course this week, with the rail in the widest position. Inside barriers are often heavily favoured, especially over the shorter distances.

Tim Geers has highlighted three races he’s keen to bet in, where he’s looking to find horses drawn on the rail.

We kick off with a 1000m event here and we see a few really important factors at play here. Zac Purton goes straight on the class-dropper (2) Winner’s Heart and also comes up with barrier 1, which is a huge advantage with the rail in the C+3 position. The horse has been well beaten at his past handful of starts but he drops into Class 5 for the first time in his career, gets a big jockey change and gets the best draw. Should be very hard to beat.

Tip: (2) Winner's Heart $3.80 Ladbrokes

Betting Strategy: 2 units WIN Winner's Heart

Once again we stick with the barrier 1 theme of the night as (7) Oscar Glory looks to find a nice race at each way odds. He’s been progressing with each of his three runs to date, beaten just 0.8L at Sha Tin last start. He gets barrier 1 tonight which is a big help stepping up to 1650m and with any luck around the turn, he should be right in this.

(4) Wealthy Delight produced a big win over track and distance last start and I think he can win again here. He didn’t get things go all his way on that occasion, having to come widest in the straight before knuckling down to run down a horse which drew barrier 1. He draws 5 again here and hopefully gets an easier run around the bend as he won’t want to come that wide on the C+3 course. He’s progressing well though and the stable is in form, so with Purton sticking with him, I think he can go on with it.

(6) Farshad is another horse in form, coming off a last-start win at the track and distance. He draws barrier 1 tonight which should see him box seat. It’s a big advantage with the rail in this position and with any luck he should find the front early in the straight. It’s just whether he can hold them off.

Tip: (4) Wealthy Delight $3.40 Sportsbet

Also Backing: (6) Farshad $6.50 Bet365

Betting Strategy: 1.5 units WIN Wealthy Delight, 0.5 units WIN Farshad

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.
