I think (8) Master Eight is the horse to beat from the inside draw today, but I’m having a throw at the stumps with (4) Super Wealthy who went huge last start. He ran a faster final 400m and 800m than Master Eight, finished ahead of him and meets him 4kg better at the weights. He also meets (7) Sight Success, who won that race, 3kg better for a 0.3L defeat.

Master Eight beat Super Wealthy three starts ago by 0.6L and meets him 6kg worse at the weights today, yet Master Eight is favourite and Super Wealthy is twice his price. The map is the big negative but worth an each way play in an open group of sprinters.

Tip: (4) Super Wealthy E/W $7.00/$2.40 Bet365

Betting Strategy: 0.5 units E/W Super Wealthy

Obvious concern taking even money here about (1) Golden Sixty given he’s been defeated in his past two starts, but you can make excuses for those. He gave them an almighty headstart two starts back and then Vincent Ho reported he didn’t handle the rain-affected ground last time out.

Back to the mile today, draws the inside gate, I’d be surprised if they gave them as big a headstart as they did when he ran over this trip two starts ago when he tasted defeat for the first time in a very long time. If he brings his best the $2.00 will look like a gift.

Tip: (1) Golden Sixty $2.00 Bet365

Betting Strategy: 1.5 units WIN Golden Sixty

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.
