Happy Valley Tips January 20

With 28 winners at Happy Valley over last 12 months (54.6% ROI), the Francis Lui stable has been a profitable one for punters to follow and he has placed this veteran well on Wednesday, courtesy of a nice drop in grade.

Although very exposed as a nine-year-old with 65 starts to his name, Winston's Lad hasn't exactly been slowing down with successive victories at the back-end of last season and completed a winning hat-trick fresh on September 6 despite a 3kg rise in the weights.

This gelding has been contesting Class 3 level since that last win and although never disgraced in those most recent five attempts, is just a little outclassed in that company, but back to a modest Class 4 on January 20, he can be in the each-way calculations.

After a plain display via his Hong Kong debut, this superbly bred gelding improved out of sight on Boxing Day over the 1400m at Sha Tin where he was only nabbed in the last stride by Juneau Park, a galloper who he was spotting 5.5kg to and that winner did get the dream split late.

A half-brother to a champion in More Joyous (eight-time Group One Winner), Lewis was a progressive galloper in Australia before being sold, putting together back-to-back wins over the Sydney winter last year, which included a Heavy 9 win over the mile with 60.5kg, so he is a proven weight carrier.

Now third-up for trainer Douglas Whyte, it is a significant booking now going for champion jockey Zac Purton and while Lewis does now lose the claim, this four-year-old will get a soft run on the speed from barrier three and with any further improvement, he can get on the board here.

Loving A BoomSheung Hei Handicap Tips (Race 9)GET 4/1 HERE
New customers only. 18+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.

This son of Acclamation admittedly doesn't win out of turn, but he has been firmly knocking on the door all season and with star hoop Christophe Soumillon remaining in the saddle, he gets his chance in the last from Happy Valley this Wednesday.

After a soft victory over the 1200m back in May 2019, this gelding was on the sidelines for close to a year before resuming at Class 2 level when only edged out late fresh, then following two disappointing efforts, came back to Class 3 level this season where he has been very competitive each time.

With last start winner Kinda Cool up in the weights off a narrow win and two other market fancies in Igniting and Here Comes Ted both unproven in this grade, Loving A Boom looks to find a very winnable assignment here, especially from a kinder gate in six.


Race 6: 1,2,3,6,7,11
Race 7: 1,3
Race 8: 1,2,3,4,6,7,9,10
Race 9: 1,4
