Happy Valley Value Bet - Race 3 No. 3 My My My
Having prepared 26 winners at Happy Valley over the last 12 months at an ROI of nearly 17%, the Frankie Lor stable has been a profitable one for punters and he returns with this gelding on Wednesday night.
My My My was very competitive in his first two Hong Kong outings which included a third behind Harmony Fire and the form is stacking up nicely with that galloper having subsequently won twice since that February 24 clash.
The three-year-old pulled up with genuine excuses in his April 21 flop (heart irregularity), but with a little spell and a nice trial on June 7, he has the barrier two in an event that is no stronger to what he has been competing in.

Happy Valley Best Bet - Race 6 No. 2 Fa Fa
Stepping up to the 1650m on April 28 was the catalyst in bringing about the first victory for this three-year-old and with just a 2kg penalty for a very similar affair, he was well placed to go back-to-back on May 26.
This progressive three-year-old was only a stride off prevailing in that most recent attempt and now finally drawing an inside barrier, if he can land that pair or so closer on settling, then he's more than capable of bouncing back here.
In a race that wasn't necessarily run to suit with many of the on-pace runners sticking on, all of the credit goes to Fa Fa two starts back who sustained a long run and was pulling away comfortably on his rivals in the finish.

Happy Valley Roughie - Race 7 No. 2 Green Aeon
This galloper can be hit or miss, hence the long odds that are available this evening, however, his best figures measure up well in this contest and the step back to 1200m may well be what he's looking for.
Prepared by leading Hong Kong trainer Caspar Fownes, Green Aeon made a decent return at Sha Tin on May 16 before delivering a flatter performance on May 30 albeit the jockey did drop the whip at a key stage on that occasion.
Never in calculations when chasing a long way out on June 9, the son of Snitzel was dropping back to Class 3 level there and was sent out as a $6 chance while he's a much bigger quote tonight, mapping for a midfield sit off a strong speed.
Caine Handicap Tips (Race 9)
Happy Valley Next Best Bet - Race 9 No. 12 Here Comes Ted
With the top three rated runners having combined for just five wins in this grade from more than 50 attempts, this certainly isn't the strongest of Class 3's and all of the above rivals do jump from middle and wider draws.
Here Comes Ted is a galloper that is improving with racing and has handled the step up in grade over quite well, competing at Class 3 level via his last three outings with his last two appearances coming off a four-month spell.
A peak performance doesn't look far away for this four-year-old who gets Hong Kong's leading rider Joao Moreira back in the saddle for this third-up attempt where from a low draw, he shouldn't be far off a peak run in a winnable race.
