Happy Valley Tips - May 22

The Francis Lui-trained RACING LUCK is in good form of late and looks well-placed here to continue that. Three starts back, he put in a great performance where coming from the rear of the field, he got up in the last stride to beat Last Kingdom and Ping Hai Treasure (who has since won at Sha Tin) in a class 3 over 1650m at this track. He followed that up finishing second behind Big Bang Bong over the same track and trip against similar company. Last start, there was little pace on and he gave the front runners too much start. He drew the outside gate that night and finished in his usual blistering style but just missed the placegetters, taking fourth prize home. The scene is set here where again he meets similar company and Vince Ho remains aboard where he has been for the Street Cry gelding’s last three starts. He can beat this field home.

Trainer Frankie Lor has enough confidence in FAT TURTLE to put him up against class 2 company here for the first time. Since arriving in Hong Kong, he has had three starts (all in class 3 grade) and is yet to finish worse than second. He made his debut here and proved too strong Split Of A Second and Sparkling Dragon in a three-way go to the line. He then ran into the very smart Champion’s Way (who until last Saturday was unbeaten in five starts), but still finished second, beaten less than two lengths. Last start, he fought it out with Planet Star from barrier rise but went down by a neck in the end from a determined Planet Star who had to run 1:09.1 to win the 1200m event. Both horses drew very wide that night but still managed to gap the rest of the field. Up in grade here but can still match it with them on form. Karis Teetan will be the fourth rider in as many runs to take the reins but the Smart Missile gelding couldn’t be in better hands. Drawn much better here (in gate 2), he should be up leading or at least on the pace and will be running on at the finish. Despite the class rise, he looks in the mix.
