Happy Valley Tips - November 20

The John Size stable is on the boil lately with Waikuku the latest resident to taste success on big scale by winning last Sunday’s Group Two Jockey Club Mile, beating home Beauty Generation for the second time in succession. Size has PICKEN lined up here and after two runs this preparation, he should be ready to strike. Resuming from a 13-week break, he took on a Class 3 over 1400m at Sha Tin and was caught wide for most of the trip. He did well to finish (4th) within a length of then winner. Then last start, the Duporth gelding challenged similar company and turning for home, Moreira tried to thread his way through a gap, however Regency Bo Bo shifted in, checking him severely and costing him any chance of victory. Again, he did well to finish (5th) within two lengths of the winner. With Moreira unavailable (due to suspension), Umberto Rispoli takes the reins for the first time and from an ideal draw (in gate 5), he should be sitting right behind the pace (possibly box-seating). Avoiding any home straight interference this time, he will be mighty hard to hold out in this company.

Caspar Fownes has a very promising gelding here with AURORA PEGASUS representing the stable and despite the class rise here, he looks primed to handle the challenge. Impeccably bred, by Iffraaj out of a Zeditave mare, the lightly-raced five-year-old has come to hand nicely, winning the last two of his five career starts. Coming off a barrier trial win, he lined up in a Class 4 here over 1200m and finished best, winning the event in 1:09.9. Then last start, he carried 2.5kgs more (58.5kgs), and drew wide in gate 10, but overcame the drawbacks to win even more impressively, putting more than a length on the field over the line. He shapes up as a real improver and has looked impressive at his last two starts. The issues here are the rise in class and a new rider Alexis Badel, with regular rider Zac Purton choosing to go with topweight Lone Eagle in the event. The big positive is he will carry 6kgs less than his last start win. Taken on trust, this fellow could give this a real shake and may possibly start near double-figure odds. He looks the value runner here.
