Happy Valley will run a nine-race program on June 12 and our preview for Wednesday night is available below.

Here are our free Hong Kong horse racing tips for Happy Valley today.

Happy Valley Tips on June 12th

Camellia Handicap Tips (Race 3)

Happy Valley Roughie - Race 3 No. 5 Holy Power

He recorded an upset win on Hong Kong debut back in December 2022 and while the gelding hasn't saluted again in 11 subsequent outings, he's been mostly consistent.

Despite recording that initial triumph over 1200m, Holy Power quickly stepped up in distance in three subsequent runs via that first campaign before an eight-month break.

The Jamie Richard-trained galloper has a solid fitness base now, with five runs completed this time in and he's completed a solid tick-over trial since his last run on May 15.

His form has improved since stepping up in trip via his last two attempts, where he's stuck on each time but lacked a turn-of-foot, so the rise to 1800m should suit here.

The Ewo Challenge Trophy Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Happy Valley Feature Bet - Race 5 No. 7 Chill Chibi

After catching the eye on Hong Kong debut in January last year, the four-year-old quickly progressed with a two-length Class 4 victory at start two before a hat-trick at Class 3 level.

Chill Chibi didn't seem to appreciate a warmer ride when on Class 2 debut on December 20, although he picked up again late to grab third and he was spelled after that run.

The son of Wrote was aimed at the Hong Kong Derby and while safely held in fourth, he found the line well in that 2000m feature before an even performance when last seen on April 20.

A lightly raced four-year-old who still has upside, Chill Chibi returns to Happy Valley off a freshen-up and while drawn out, a cold ride off a good tempo is when he's at his best.

Heather Handicap Tips (Race 6)

Happy Valley Value Bet - Race 6 No. 7 Sight Happy

This David Hayes-trained galloper should take plenty from his Hong Kong debut run on May 15, where he was in the market but could only manage an eighth-of-twelve finish.

He looked very green in that first race day appearance and barrier nine didn't help him in that attempt, as Sight Happy couldn't get into an early rhythm with a back to follow.

It was still a pass mark for the three-year-old, who has looked slick via a tick-over trial win and Karis Teetan can give him a much more economical time of things from gate one.

Prior to his debut, Sight Happy had won a trial over this track/trip, where he led throughout and went to the line under a hold, while natural improvement is predicted tonight.

Violet Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Happy Valley Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 2 Magic Control

Arguably the most interesting runner on the entire Happy Valley program is Magic Control, a gelding who makes his Hong Kong debut following some slick work at the trials.

When campaigning as 'Archo Nacho', Magic Control was one of Australia's most promising three-year-old sprinters this season, with three wins recorded from five starts.

His last outing Australian run came on Cox Plate Day when taking out the Group 3 Red Anchor Stakes and Moonee Valley success should him in good stead for this tight-turning track.

A short and compact type who has completed four trials leading into this first-up assignment, Magic Control has drawn well here and he shouldn't long take to come to hand.

Chamomile Handicap Tips (Race 9)

Happy Valley Best Bet - Race 9 No. 11 Jumbo Legend

There may be some opposition given his overall record in this grade, however, Jumbo Legend would've gone close in a similar affair last time out had he drawn kinder.

The Caspar Fownes-trained galloper was forced to settle at the rear from barrier 10 on May 22 and while he was left with too much to do, it was hard to miss his late work.

He arrived to that latest attempt off a Class 4 win over the track/trip, where he sustained a wide run with 59kg to salute and Jumbo Legend was unlucky in two prior appearances.

They couldn't have him going much better and now mapping for more favours against some key rivals who are getting up in the weights, this is his best chance to land a Class 3.
