Tsun Yip Handicap Tips (Race 3)

Happy Valley Value Bet - Race 3 No. 1 Villa Fionn

This veteran has a decent record over this track/trip and after competitive showings all season at Class 3 level, he's well placed back to a Class 4.

Villa Fionn won his last try in this grade just over 11 months ago and with the Angus Chum claim, he's carrying 3kg less for this attempt.

The son of Sebring generally settles off speed, but with a good tempo predicted and even luck in transit, he should go close off current form.

Mut Wah Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Happy Valley Value Bet - Race 5 No. 5 June Planet

Given how weak this Class 4 is and with a tricky map for the fav, it's not surprising that they're keeping this first starter safe in the early markets.

A four-year-old that's prepared by Caspar Fownes, June Planet has had six trials ahead of this debut, with his latest coming at Happy Valley.

Without necessarily working the house down, he's shown versatility and has responded well when coming off the bridle over his last few heats.

Mut Wah Handicap Tips (Race 6)

Happy Valley Roughie - Race 6 No. 2 Above All

After recording back-to-back victories over this track/trip last May, not much has gone the way of Above All in five subsequent performances.

Wide barriers and covering ground have been the trend over his last three outings this season, but he now finally draws well in gate three.

Although he's got to turn around a string of poor runs, this gelding should get favours here, while he has one of the strongest peak figures in this field.

Hung To Handicap Tips (Race 7)

Happy Valley Best Bet - Race 7 No. 4 Juneau Flash

This four-year-old is improving with every start and he'll be looking to atone for a runner-up finish on Dec 21, a race he arguably should've won.

Along with a 2kg weight swing on the winner (Faribault) from that clash, Zac Purton jumps off that key threat to ride Juneau Flash this evening.

With the benefit of barrier five here, look for the champion hoop to settle a pair or so closer this time around, which could prove the difference.

Hip Wo Handicap Tips (Race 9)

Happy Valley Next Best Bet - Race 9 No. 3 Heroic Master

Coming out of a handy form race on Nov 30 is Heroic Master, who was spotting 5kg and a much softer run to the eventual winner, California Spangle.

That galloper franked the form with another win on Dec 14, whereas this Frankie Lor-trained gelding completed a solid trial off a little freshen-up.

He gets Zac Purton back on, who steered him to victory the start prior after an unlucky Hong Kong debut, while he did win over 1200m in Australia.
