International Racing: Wednesday 06 May 2020 – Happy Valley

International Racing: Tuesday 05 May 2020 – Bundaberg

There are nine races at the Valley course this Wednesday 6th May. With a few favourites going missing in recent times, punters could be looking for value and there appears to be a few nice opportunities to find them on this card. FANTASTIC FABIO could be one of the better ‘risk’ bets on the card, when he goes to post in the 3rd race. He finds a decent draw and looks well handicapped to go right into contention. The best bet however, comes in the 7th race when REEL BIZZY will be looking to convert his good recent form, since going over a bit more ground, into a win. See more here.

Race 1 – 12:45 – 1200m – Class 4 Handicap
Selections: 3 – 4 – 2 – 1 – 6
MONKEY JEWELLERY has dropped another point in the ratings after that good last run over this course and distance, when overcoming barrier 10 last time. That was his first run since dropping into this class and he looks very competitive off his current mark of 59. From a much-improved draw, Joao Moreira retains the ride and he looks perfectly placed to win this. GOKO has also been dropping in the ratings and he gave a good account when returning to this course, for his second outing since dropping to this level. The 1kg claiming So regains the ride and the son of O’Reilly should be a major contender here. LORIZ returns to a course and distance where we have seen his best form and he picks a plum draw to aid his chances even further here. Zac Purton picks up the ride and he’ll be a prominent contender throughout. SUPER LUCKY has been in good consistent form over this course and distance in recent times. The wide draw won’t help, but he has a big finish and with luck he should be involved.

Race 2 – 13:15 – 1650m – Class 4 Handicap
Selections: 3 – 1 – 11 – 5 – 10
RICH AND LUCKY has his Happy Valley debut after a decent start to his career consisting of 6 outings at Sha Tin, where he has picked up a win and two seconds. The son of Kingman had an interrupted trip last time out, when stepping up to the mile and he will be looking to capitalize on the plum draw he has found first up at the Valley course. Purton regains the mount and they should be tough to beat. BIG BANG BONG drops into this class on the back a decent effort in stronger company last time out. He has had three tough draws to deal with in his last three outings, but his luck has improved here, and he will benefit from gate 2 this time. His best form has come over this course and distance, so the step up in trip will suit and he looks a threat. ROYAL RACER has been knocking on the door of late and he will be hoping for a much-smoother passage this time, after finding traffic at a crucial point approaching the straight in his latest effort. From another plum draw, Joao Moreira should be able to guide him into a prominent position and they have the credentials to feature in the finish. FLAME LILLY is a consistent performer over this course and distance and despite the draw, he finds conditions to suit and he should finish in the money.

Race 3 – 13:45 – 1200m – Class 4 Handicap
Selections: 6 – 4 – 3 – 9 – 10
FANTASTIC FABIO has been dropping in the ratings for a while now and despite not featuring prominently of late, it is worth looking back to the last time he found a decent draw. From the same gate he finds himself jumping from today, he went close to winning from a prominent position on that occasion. With Alfred Chan back up today, claiming 3,5kg, he should be difficult to catch from a handy position. YEE CHEONG PEGASUS beat the top selection last time out, when almost winning. That was a continuation of a smart run of form he has enjoyed lately, and Joao Moreira makes for a confidence boosting jockey engagement. The son of Lonhro lines up 5,5kg worse off with the former and that could make things tougher this time around. With that said, he should be a leading contender. COMPASSION STAR and BULLISH BROTHER both arrive with decent credentials and they must have reasonable chances if overcoming draws 9 and 8 respectively.

Race 4 – 14:15 – 1650m – Class 4 Handicap
Selections: 1 – 4 – 10 – 6 – 2
METHANE has rallied well from difficult barriers in his last three starts and the draw he has picked up here isn’t much better. The blinkers seemed to assist in his last two starts and they will be fitted once again. Karis Teetan takes the mount and with his recent form in mind, he should be the one to beat. LIGHTNING STEED endured a tough trip on the All-Weather last time out, when overcoming a very wide draw. On his penultimate run over this course and distance he rates a bit threat from gate 2, with Moreira up. PERFECT HARMONY finished behind the top selection last time out and he lines up 3,5kg better off at the weights this time. with just four starts to his name, he has plenty of scope for improvement and must be considered a danger. MISSION SMART has his fourth career outing here and he will be hoping for a much smoother passage if his first three runs are anything to go on. Gate 3 will allow for him to pick a position much closer to the lead and he should be involved in the finish, with the expected improvement to come.

Race 5 – 14:45 – 1200m – Class 4 Handicap
Selections: 2 – 3 – 7 – 1 – 5
MOMENTUM GALAXY has started to show promising signs with the drop in ratings and he could’ve gone a lot closer in his latest effort had it not been for late traffic. That was when dropping into this class over the same course and distance. The form line of that run has been confirmed with the winner, Simply Fluke, following up and winning again as well as Destine Jewellery who lines up here. Zac Purton takes the ride this time and they’ll be one of the better bets on the card. THE RUNNER enjoyed the return to this course over the same trip last time out, when Antoine Hamelin jumped aboard. The removal of the blinkers seemed to work, coupled with his competitive current rating, he should be the biggest threat to the top one. MILLENIUM FALCON gave a good impression on debut a month ago and the 3-year old son of Charm Spirit will have a tricky draw to overcome in his attempt to build on that effort. However, he produced a powerful finish on that occasion, and he will be doing his best work late once again. HARMONY N HOME gets the services of Joao Moreira this time after finding no luck in running last time out, in his effort to follow up on that good penultimate run. With just four runs to his name, he will have plenty of scope for improvement and gate 1 brings him into the equation.

Race 6 – 1000m – Class 3 Handicap
Selections: 8 – 3 – 10 – 9 – 7
FLYING GENIUS returns to a course and distance where he has picked up two wins from three attempts and he lands a plum draw to build on that record here. Karis Teetan jumps back aboard having won on him prior to this and the son of All Too Hard should be good value to win this, with plenty more improvement to come. BE READY finds a much-improved draw and lines up 4kg’s better off with Larson this time around, after a length beating by the latter in his last start. That was his second start at this course, his first over the track and trip, and with Purton retaining he should be a big contender. VICTORY IN HAND has continued his good recent form over the 1200m into this class. He finds a very good draw for this drop in trip which should suit his early speed and with the 2,5kg claimer up, he must be considered. SPECIAL STARS is improving as he continues to drop in the ratings and with Moreira jumping back aboard from a good draw, he must be included.

Race 7 – 15:45 – 1650m – Class 3 Handicap
Selections: 3 – 1 – 7 – 6 – 2
REEL BIZZY did well to overcome a tricky draw last time out. He endured a tough trip throughout and became baulked for running in the closing stages, to finish just 1,75-lengths behind the winner. He now lines up 3,5kg’s better off with the latter. The recent rise to this sort of trip has suited and he clearly enjoys the Valley course. Zac Purton takes the mount from barrier 4 and he should be very tough to beat here. SUNSHINE WARRIOR is unbeaten in two starts since stepping up to this course and distance. Despite the penalty received for those two recent wins, he finds a useful draw once again and must have a reasonable chance of going into contention for the hattrick of wins. SUCH A HAPPINESS has only had one start at this course from his 24 career outings. He returns for his follow up effort after showing good improvement since being fitted with the blinkers two starts back. Karis Teetan jumps back aboard the son of Savabeel and he should be one of the leading contenders here. ENFOLDING finished right in front the top selection in his last start when returning to the Turf after an All-Weather campaign. That was his second start over this course and distance, and he must have a decent chance of improving on that record here.

Race 8 – 16:15 – 1200m – Class 3 Handicap
Selections: 12 – 6 – 7 – 2 – 3
SUPERB DADDY rallied wide from a tough position in his last start, to finish just 2,5-lengths behind the winner. That was the second of two wide draws he has been dealt in his last two outings. He lands draw 2 this time and lines up 5,5kg better off the latter. Off his mark of 60, he could just cause the upset. WHISKEY NEAT has slipped 10-points in the ratings in his last six starts and he is starting to show signs of a big performance in this class, despite being drawn wide in his last two. The blinkers come off this time and with Moreira up, he should be right there at the business end. WINNING FEELING has been right there in his last two starts since rising back into this class. Both runs were all the way back in January this year, as a result of the vet finding blood in his trachea after his last run. Drawn well, he can bounce back first up. GOLDEN DASH followed up that good recent win over this this course and distance with a well deserved second last time out. He is a three-time winner in just ten starts and he is yet to miss the first four. If overcoming the draw, he can feature.

Race 9 – 16:50 – 1650m – Class 2 Handicap
Selections: 2 – 1 – 11 – 8 – 7
A tricky race to end off proceedings and the narrow first selection goes to an outsider in the form of INSAYSHABLE. He has slipped to a competitive looking mark of 95 now and he will be looking to build on that gutsy trip last time out, when boxing on well over a tough trip. He finds a decent draw and conditions to suit, and he should be one of the leading contenders at the business end. DANCES WITH DRAGON won his last start from a tricky draw, when being asked the question a long way out and quickening to win narrowly. The drop in trip will suit similar tactics and with Purton retaining the ride, he must be considered. SOLAR WAI WAI steps up in class on the back three solid performances in Class 3 company, when picking up two wins and going down narrowly in his penultimate start. He should have the gate speed to negate the wide draw and find his customary handy position, and with two wins from his five attempts over this course and distance he could go close in this company. ENRICHMENT finished right behind the top weight last time. He lines up 1,5kg’s better off with the latter for just a head beating and with Moreira retaining the ride, he looks a natural inclusion.
