Happy Valley Tips September 8

Chung Hom Kok Handicap Tips (Race 2)

Happy Valley Value Bet - Race 2 No. 2 Wood On Fire

Karis Teetan kicked off the new Hong Kong season in style, riding three winners on last Sunday's Sha Tin program and he jumps aboard this Peter Ho-trained gelding in the second from Happy Valley on Wednesday.

With a get back and run-on racing pattern, Wood On Fire always needs that bit of luck, although to be fair his overall record over this track/trip is quite good and for the Happy Valley 1200m, he has the best figures in this field.

Winning a similar affair back in March before a string of competitive efforts at Class 3 level, he's much better placed back to Class 4 grade and off a good trial on August 31, can figure late here if they overdo it up front.

Deep Water Bay Handicap Tips (Race 3)

Happy Valley Value Bet - Race 3 No. 1 Meaningful Star

This is a competitive Class 4, albeit one that sees many of the market elects at their ceiling whereas this four-year-old is coming down in grade for the first time, having campaigned at Class 3 level over his first six outings for Francis Lui.

He was hardly disgraced throughout that initial Hong Kong preparation, finding the Class 3's at Sha Tin over 1200m-1400m a little slick early before finishing off quite well on April 25 when stepping up to the mile.

Although up in the weights, Meaningful Star has a soft gate in four to help offset a 60.5kg impost and in easily the weakest assignment he's faced since the move, the son of Pivotal is well placed resuming over the 1650m.

Chung Hom Kok Handicap Tips (Race 4)

Happy Valley Next Best Bet - Race 4 No. 9 Fortune Carrier

Having combined for 30 winners at a strike rate of nearly 23% over the last 12 months, the Zac Purton and Danny Shum partnership should always be well respected, with the champion Australian hoop back aboard this gelding first-up.

After being a little disappointing in his first four Hong Kong appearances, Fortune Carrier hit his straps off the back of a let-up, boxing on well for second on May 19 and looked to have his June 2 event shot to bits, before veteran Harrier Jet fought back.

Now with the blinkers on, a gear change that was in effect via an August 24 trial where he was only reeled in late by Hall Of Champ (Class 2/3 galloper), this Class 4 does look very winnable on return where he'll settle handy from gate five.

Repulse Bay Handicap Tips (Race 7)

Happy Valley Best Bet - Race 7 No. 3 Resolute

With seven winners at a strike rate of 29.2% over the last 12 months, the Joao Moreira and Tony Millard combination has been a profitable one for punters, with a positive ROI (9.6%) despite teaming up on many market fancies.

After numerous showings at Sha Tin, the return to Happy Valley on July 14 was the catalyst for bringing about win number three for the five-year-old, where he pulled away late in the piece despite racing three-wide without cover on the speed.

That's certainly not something you see often on this turning circuit and treated well considering with just a 2kg penalty off that performance, there's no reason he can't go back-to-back, with barrier three at the 'Magic Man's' disposal.
