Happy Valley Tips - January 16

The Tony Cruz-trained WALDORF is in a real purple patch of form of late and lines up here as a real threat. The four-year-old has finished top three in three of his past four starts and seems to do his best over the 1200m trip. Two starts back he was a solid winner at this track and trip in class 4 company, running the 1200m in 1:09.9. Last start, he stepped up to class 3 grade and put in a huge performance to finish third behind Telecom Brothers. Trapped three-deep no cover to the turn he was then pushed even wider, but still finished strongly for a top three finish. Karis Teetan has partnered the gelding at his past four starts and remains aboard here. If he can overcome the wide gate (8) and find a sit closer to the fence, he can save his best for the run home and at the weights, will be hard to hold out.

The barrier draw could decide this with last start winner Happy Dragon drawing the outside gate. The John Moore-trained gelding won in a romp last start but had everything going for him. Here, he may find the going a little tougher, having to cross from that wide gate. My eyes are on the Caspar Frownes-trained GREEN LUCK who has drawn the middle of the field and has no Pakistan Friend to contend with here. The lightly-raced four-year-old has already registered three wins from his seven starts and his last two efforts have been first-class with Zac Purton aboard on both occasions. He remains aboard here and with those two hit-outs behind him, he has the experience with the horse to know how best to ride him. He beat Happy Dragon home two starts back over this track and trip, putting two lengths on him that day. Drawn better here, Green Luck (with Purton aboard) will make their own luck and should enjoy a better run. I see Green Dragon turning ahead of Happy Dragon and should finish that way.
