Wolf’s Racing Guide – Happy Valley 6 September


Wolf’s Best

Fox Sunter (Happy Valley Race 5, No. 8)

Lightly raced gelding who strung together two solid placings late in the 2016/17 season.

The Wolf is confident that he’s ready to score his maiden Hong Kong victory here and his recent trial win over debut winner Household King, only backs this claim up.

He cruised past Household King late in that trial and if he repeats that performance here, he’ll be awfully hard to beat.

Double Down: Expect him to settle on the speed.

Confidence Level: 

Circuit Bets

Powermax (Happy Valley Race 6, No. 3)

A winner of three from nine last season; this consistent son of Magnus looks very hard to beat.

Along with his three wins from nine, he placed on four other occasions suggesting he very rarely runs a bad race.

Umberto Rispoli takes the reins here and if he is able to settle him on the speed early, The Wolf expects he’ll take a power of beating from there.

Double Down: Want him settled on the speed.

Confidence Level: 

Thunder Stomp (Happy Valley Race 7, No. 6)

Consistent gelding who rarely runs a bad race; having placed in four of his last five.

He gets his chance here dropping back from 1800m to 1650m and getting Moreira aboard is always a positive.

Last start he placed behind Dr Listening and if that’s any form reference to go by, it appears to be his race to lose.

Double Down: Want him settled on the speed.

Confidence Level: 

Convincible (Happy Valley Race 8, No. 3)

Very talented gelding from the Francis Lui Stable who was able to string two wins together at the tail end of the 2016/17 season.

His last start win over this course and distance was full of merit against a relatively strong field of Class 2 horses.

He’s since trialled in preparation for the new season; where he finished second behind Blizzard; who has resumed with a placing in the Class 1 HKSAR Chief Executive’s Cup at Sha Tin on opening day.

His trial form suggests he is ready to fire first up and with Karis Teetan remaining aboard, he’ll be hard to beat.

Double Down: Want him settled worse than midfield.

Confidence Level: 

Bolter

Beauty Connection (Happy Valley Race 4, No. 7)

His form of late has been very patchy, but his best has seen him place twice in a row over this course and distance.

He doesn’t meet an overly strong field to kick off his 2017/18 season, so if he can settle himself on the speed he could give this race a shake.

Purton is the key factor here, he’s ridden him four times and only missed the placings once.

The Wolf is confident that if he finds his best, aided by a positive ride from Purton, he could take beating.

Double Down: Expect he’ll sit on the speed.

Confidence Level:
