Winning Form brings us their best bets and tips for Wednesday’s racing from Happy Valley.
VALUE BET – TELECOM MISSILE ridden by A. Chan
BEST BET –SUPER WINNER ridden by J. Moreira
Bi-Pot (Start Race 1): 8,9/7,10,11/3,11/4,7/7,8/8,9 (R96)
12.45 Race 1 | Class 5 Handicap 1800m
SUCCESSALLSTARS followed up his most recent win with a fair effort at Sha Tin. He gets Teetan in the saddle and may be able to coax a little bit extra out of him where it matters most. RIGHTEOUS WIN produced a fair last effort despite racing three-wide. He has cracked a better draw and should give a good account of himself.
13.15 Race 2 | Class 5 Handicap 1000m
TELECOM MISSILE won his penultimate run shouldering this weight. He looks fairly handicapped and definitely represents decent each-way value for Hong Kong racing pundits. FLYING MONKEY finished well last time despite receiving a bump at the start. Leung takes the ride and he should be right there at the business end.
13.45 Race 3 | Class 4 Handicap 1200m
ICE LEGEND has placed in his last two outings. He is a horse that has plenty of scope for improvement and Moreira should give him all the necessary assistance from the saddle. HAPPILY FRIENDS is better than his below-par last effort when drawn wide. He has cracked pole position and has the ability to challenge the top selection.
14.15 Race 4 | Class 4 Handicap 1200m
HAPPY PROFIT was an unlucky loser last time as he was cramped for galloping room at the 250m mark. He will be looking to make amends in this contest. ARES finished runner-up last time and is a likely frontrunner in this contest. He may have his own way in front this time and can go one better.
14.45 Race 5 | Class 4 Handicap 1650m
SUN OF MAKFI was an impressive winner in his last start. The manner in which he drew away from the opposition in the final furlong suggests there is another win in the tank. CHARIZARD should have finished closer to the winner last time as he was cramped for galloping room at the 100m mark. Piccone retains the ride and the pair merit healthy respect.
15.15 Race 6 | Class 3 Handicap 1800m
EXCEPTIONAL NICE has finished runner-up in his last three starts. He is likely to race on the speed and his next career win looks overdue. LEAP OF FAITH has also found one better in his last three outings. He is a horse that is loaded with ability and if putting his mind on the task at hand, can challenge the top selection.
15.45 Race 7 | Class 3 Handicap 1000m
HEART CONQUERED brings decent recent form into this contest. He looks fairly handicapped and should be very competitive. RESOLUTE looked like a winner on the All-Weather Track last time. He is back on turf and if confirming that form, will have a say.
16.15 Race 8 | Class 2 Handicap 1650m
BEAUTY FIT was a comfortable winner in his last start over a mile at Sha Tin. The manner in which he cruised to victory suggests there is plenty more to come from this individual. FLAGSHIP GLORY is the class in the race. He has a wide draw to overcome but if bringing his A game, can challenge for top honours.
16.50 Race 9 | Class 2 Handicap 1200m
SUPER WINNER is the best bet on the card. He finished well up the rail last time when narrowly beaten at the wire. He reeled off a hat-trick prior to that and will be looking to get back to winning ways. IGNITING should have finished closer to the winner last time as he was cramped for galloping room at the 200m mark. He is definitely capable of earning a cheque in the lucky last.
