Happy Valley Tips January 27

Ice House Handicap Tips (Race 3)

Happy Valley Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 7 My Ecstatic

Following a forgivable debut when well fancied and then a midfield finish when only fair at Sha Tin, we saw a much-improved effort here on January 6 with this gelding appreciating the more positive tactics that were adopted.

Trainer Frankie Lor and Joao Moreira have combined for nine winners at an excellent strike rate of 28.1% this season and they team up again on Wednesday night with My Ecstatic, who should be able find the front from barrier six.

After working early in that last attempt, the effort from this five-year-old was very brave when continuing to whack away for second to hold a safe margin on the rest of the field and with any improvement along with a little more luck early, he will take catching.

Ice House Handicap Tips (Race 4)

Happy Valley Best Bet - Race 4 No. 4 Ever Force

By the boom up and coming stallion Toronado is this galloper from the Danny Chum stable who is set to have his third Hong Kong start and now with champion jockey Zac Purton taking the reins, this does look a prime opportunity to breakthrough.

He had had displayed good early toe in all three trials prior to an honest December 16 debut and followed that up with a fourth-place finish in a fast run 1200m event on January 6, sticking on gamely in a race that was eventually set up for the closers.

With his main threats in this field having drawn out, barrier one is a big advantage for Purton who can obtain the run of the race in the box-seat aboard Ever Force who should get every chance in a rather weak race.

Connaught Handicap Tips (Race 7)

Happy Valley Roughie - Race 7 No. 2 Saul's Special

This seven-year-old can be a little hot and cold, hence the big odds that are available but is certainly capable enough in a race of this nature where his peak figures match up very well in this contest.

Although he was safely held behind the very impressive Kurpany on January 6, the handicapper hasn't missed that winner with a big 5.5kg increase as a result of that victory and two starts back, these two gallopers have practically finished next to each other.

Saul's Special is drawn out but was likely settling off the speed irrespective and if Tony Piccone can get a tow into it late, perhaps with cover off a three-wide line, then he can be very competitive at a long price.

Des Voeux Handicap Tips (Race 9)

Happy Valley Value Bet - Race 9 No. 3 World Famous

After a third-place finish over the Happy Valley 1650m second-up, this galloper from the Ricky Yiu yard put in an absolute shocker on the Sha-Tin All Weather track but there were genuine excuses in the post-race.

The son of Reliable Man has been back to the trials and both work-outs been solid where he firstly went to the line under a good hold for third on December 29 before a 1700m heat on January 16, where he paired off with California Rad to put a big space on the rest of the field.

That opponent was coming off a Class 2 victory on New Year's Day and while there definitely is a take on trust element attached to World Famous, he maps for a perfect run in the lead under Derek Leung from barrier one.


Race 6: 2,3,4,7,8
Race 7: 1,2,3,4,6
Race 8: 4,9
Race 9: 1,3,4
