RACE 2

This really should be a stroll in the park for Joao Moreira and the John Size trained IVICTORY (2). If really needing to have a bet, take it as the first leg of the third Double where you might get some value. Keyser would prefer to watch. Who doesn’t like to watch?

RACE 3

The first leg of the Six Up and with a sizeable jackpot up for grabs the worst thing would be to be stumble at the first hurdle. Many have. Though Garlic Yeah is a pretty hot and spicy favourite, there’s a very tricky look to the race with an outsider or third or fourth favourite winning without surprising.

Making the race even tougher is that it’s over 2200 metres where tactics come into play and the best laid plans come undone. One would have to be Rommel, The Desert Fox, to map out the various strategies employed by the riders here- and still get it wrong. Might be because there will be no real strategies.

For Keyser Soze, he’ll be taking the entire field. Better safe than sorry than dumb and dumber.

GOOD DAYS (4)
GARLIC YEAH (6)
SMART BABY (9)
HAPPY CONTENDER (7)

RACE 4

The first leg of the Triple Trio and where one might be able to focus on four winning chances. Could there be any surprises? Doubt it. But don’t bet on it.

NÚMERO UNO (3)
HAPPY SURVEYS (2)
CLEAR CHOICE (9)
HERO TIME (7)

RACE 5

This SHOULD be another stroll in the park for Joao Moreira on another John Size runner in Har Har Heart (2) which looks too good for this field.

One that could upset is Hero Look (5) with Douglas Whyte up and who has a new spring in his step days and looking like the cat who’s swallowed the canary. Does one really have to look into a crystal ball to know why? The future looks so bright one might need to wear shades!

RACE 6

Should be another relatively easy race to win.

ALCARI (11)
FORTUNE BOOTH (1)
GAMECHANGERS (3)
HARD PROMISE (4)

RACE 7

Possibly the most open race of the night and where anything can jump out of the ground and gobble up those that look home and hosed.

NAVAS (9)
SMART BOY (5)
MOST BEAUTIFUL (12)
EXTREMELY FUN (1)

RACE 8

Winning Faith loves Happy Valley, it’s trialled well here recently, and despite quite a bit of time between races, keep the faith with this one.
