Happy Valley Tips September 13

Tung Chung Handicap Tips (Race 2)

Happy Valley Roughie - Race 2 No. 1 Kasa Papa

Although he wasn't a perennial winner when racing as 'High Supremacy' in Australia, the son of Savabeel was consistent Down Under, recording two wins and five placings from 11 starts.

The gelding was stakes-placed three times when prepared by Richard & Michael Freedman, with the last of those a Group 3 second behind Senor Toba, who is Group class in Hong Kong.

While he hasn't been able to salute in 10 Hong Kong appearances, Kasa Papa was very unlucky not to have prevailed first-up last season when badly held-up over the 1400m at Sha Tin.

After only contesting Class 3's in Hong Kong, he now finds himself at Class 4 level for the first time and while there's extra weight to carry as a result, a soft draw can offset that over the 1650m.

Tai O Handicap Tips (Race 3)

Happy Valley Best Bet - Race 3 No. 1 Denfield

This sprinter improved out of sight in his second Hong Kong prep and he also very unlucky over that April/May period before recording a much-deserved breakthrough win in June.

That was a high-rating victory over the Happy Valley 1200m and especially given he's less exposed than most of his rivals, already having the best peak figure in a field is a big advantage for Denfield.

He receives a 4kg penalty for that June 28 triumph, but the gelding is staying at Class 4 level and as we so often see with progressive runners in this grade, they're able to handle the weight.

The Danny Shum-trained galloper was forced to overcome wide draws on multiple occasions last season and off an excellent lead-up trial on August 30, Karis Teetan has gate three at his disposal.

Tai O Handicap Tips (Race 4)

Happy Valley Next Best Bet - Race 4 No. 5 High Percentage

While he'll continue to improve with racing as this season wears on, there's was enough to like about the first three Hong Kong outings from High Percentage, who returns off a solid trial.

He was very green over the Sha Tin 1000m dash on debut, yet was far from disgraced and the four-year-old improved off that with a second behind Solar Partner over this track/trip on May 31.

That winner franked the form when going back-to-back on June 28, whereas High Percentage had come to the end of that campaign when contesting 1400m affair at Sha tin in July.

Prepared by Benno Yung, who sailed past 300 career winners in Hong Kong late last season, this son Maurice has plenty of upside and he's well placed back to six-furlongs here fresh.

Ngong Ping Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Happy Valley Value Bet - Race 5 No. 1 California Voce

The market is playing it safe as he was just fair via a September 5 trial; however, he wasn't knocked about after a slow getaway and those All-Weather heats can be a tad misleading.

Also, Hugh Bowman sticks from that hit-out and the Australian hoop had a decent record aboard Tony Cruz runners last season, with the pair recording four wins and 10 placings from 25 starters.

A winner of two starts when prepared by Joseph O'Brien, there was subsequent European stakes form out of his last victory, which includes Matilda Picotte (three-times Group placed this year).

He showed enough over four runs last season, with solid chasing efforts in three of those outings and now with a strong rider, who has barrier one to use, he's right in the mix.

Mui Wo Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Happy Valley Value Bet - Race 8 No. 4 Excellent Peers

This six-year-old ticks plenty of boxes via a competitive Class 3 sprint to round out the card and although safely held in a September 4 lead-up trial, he was hard to miss when rattling home late.

Excellent Peers has been a useful campaigner for the Frankie Lor stable and most notably, he thrives over the Happy Valley 1200m, with all four Hong Kong wins coming at this track/trip.

The most recent of those victories came last November and although the gelding wasn't able to prevail again is seven subsequent starts, he was very competitive in all of those efforts.

Drawn to land in a midfield stalking position off what looks a good tempo, Excellent Peers retains the services of jockey Matthew Chadwick, who has been aboard for his last two wins.
