Winning Form share all of their best bets and tips for Wednesday’s racing coming your way from Happy Valley on 22 March 2023.
VALUE BET – ALLGREEKTOME ridden by C. Ho
BEST BET – FLYING ON THE TURF ridden by Z. Purton
12:45 – Race 1 | Class 5 | 1650m
OUR CREED won his last start over this C&D and it is encouraging that Luke Ferraris has kept faith in the ride. JOLLY HONOUR finished 2.5 lengths behind the top selection in his last start. He is 2.5kgs better off at the weights and is a big danger in this opening contest.
13:15 – Race 2 | Class 4 | 1200m
RIGHTEOUS ARION was a beaten favorite when pipped by Snowalot last time. He has cracked a neat draw and will be looking to make amends. HAPPY TRIO brings some decent form lines and has been campaigning well under Karis Teetan. He is nicely handicapped and should be one of the leading contenders.
13:45 – Race 3 | Class 4 | 1000m
ATOMIC ENERGY was narrowly beaten by G One Excellent who has since franked the form. He is coming along nicely and will have plenty of followers. GLORY BO BO returns from a break, shoulders a handy galloping weight and can make his presence felt in this line-up.
14:15 – Race 4 | Class 4 | 1800m
REACH GOAL was beaten just over a length by FLYING SILVER in his penultimate start. The pair meet on the same weight terms and there shouldn’t be too much between them at the wire. CHATER PINS comes in near the bottom of the weights and is likely to take his medicine from barrier 9.
14:45 – Race 5 | Class 4 | 1200m
FLYING ON THE TURF is in a rich vein of form. He is going for four wins on-the-trot and looks one of the better bets on the card. TIMESTORM and WIND SPEEDER produced a good last effort over this C&D and will be looking to give the odds-on favorite a good run for his money.
15:15 – Race 6 | Class 4 | 1650m
V CHEVALIERS was beaten just under two lengths behind PACKING SUCCEEDER last time. He is 2.5kgs better off at the weights and can confirm his recent improvement. VIVA POPCORN is nicely weighted with apprentice Chung aboard and will just need to overcome the wide draw to have a say.
15:45 – Race 7 | Class 3 | 1200m
MAJESTIC KNIGHT was beaten a couple of lengths by the progressive Howdeepisyourlove and the booking of Zac Purton to ride suggests he is ready to win. CALIFONIA CIBLE finished half a length behind the top selection last time and the only concern is that he is 5kgs worse off at the weights.
16:15 – Race 8 | Class 2 | 1650m
GORYTUS managed to get up and defeat Encountered who recently competed in the Hong Kong Derby. He should strip fitter and will be looking to make it quick back-to-back wins. BERLIN TANGO finished three lengths behind EVERYONE’S DELIGHT last time. He is 6kgs better off at the weights and can turn the tables on his recent conqueror.
16:50 – Race 9 | Class 3 | 1200m
ALLGREEKTOME won his last start over this C&D in fine fashion. This Hayes trained inmate has a solid record on this course and definitely represents decent each-way value for Hong Kong racing pundits. ACT OF FAITH finished close-up behind Flying On The Turf and it will be intriguing to see if the form line is done any favors in Race 5. PODIUM makes his Hong Kong debut and is one to keep an eye on in the lucky last!
