Happy Valley Tips January 13

Osmanthus Handicap Tips (Race 4)

King DragonHappy Valley Best Bet - Race 4GET 16/5 HERE
18+ only. Ts and Cs apply. Gamble responsibly.

Although this four-year-old is admittedly getting a little costly for his supporters, now finally drawing a gate and stepping back up to 1650m, he should get every chance in what's quite a weak Class 4 field.

The "Magic Man" Joao Moreira is the leading jockey in Hong Kong this season and he jumps aboard the son Savabeel this evening, who has drawn out in his last two outings and despite still being competitive, hasn't had a winning chance in either of them runs when back and wide off muddling speeds.

With a more positive ride from gate three this evening and settling handier to what doesn't look to be a strong speed, King Dragon should get more favours and an opportunity to breakthrough.

Dianthus Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Tom's StyleHappy Valley Value Bet - Race 5GET 15/1 HERE
New customers only. 18+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.

A seven length Maiden winner when racing as 'Hinchrider' in Australia prior to being sold, Tom's Style was mostly uncompetitive throughout his first campaign in Hong Kong but coming back to Class 4 level second-up this preparation, we saw a much-improved effort from this gelding.

After settling back under Neil Callan and pinching ground along the inside, this five-year-old was hard to miss over the concluding stages when balancing up strongly over the last 100m and whilst he is drawn out again, the speed should be solid up front if they elect to ride him cold once more.

The big price is reflective in the luck he will likely need on the map, but with a repeat of that last start or even a little improvement now third-up, this galloper from the Francis Lui stable has each-way claims this evening.

Begonia Handicap Tips (Race 9)

Capital StarHappy Valley Next Best Bet - Race 9GET 4/1 HERE
New customers only. 18+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.

Going by the name 'Classy Jaybee' when campaigning in Australia, this son of Danerich showed plenty of potential over two campaigns down under and was seemingly improving with every outing, leaving off the back a strong victory in Adelaide over 1200m.

Leading Hong Kong trainer Caspar Fownes prepares this gelding and it's well worth respecting the engagement of Joao Moreira for this stable debut of Capital Star, who hasn't been knocked around in three good lead-up trials (one in slick time when hard held for second) and with the benefit of barrier one, they should be able to land straight on the speed.

Capital Star was quite a straight forward galloper via those prior performances where he can settle handy and sprint off any tempo, which is always advantageous around Happy Valley and overall, this isn't the strongest of Class 3 fields with plenty of well exposed opposition.
