Happy Valley (M18) - Wednesday, 7 November 2018

21:45 HK TIME

summary


At his last start I felt that PLANET STAR ran an enormous race after setting a suicidal tempo. He was beaten a nose into second and he should be able to go one better this evening. He maps to either lead with less pressure or to follow SICHUAN BOSS through out and a repeat of his rating from last time will have him win. Sichuan Boss himself is a decent chance. The step up in class with a light weight is a good combo for him to win again. LET’S TAKE IT EASY should be as close to being as fit as he needs to be to run to his best. He might slot into the right position shortly after the start and if Planet Star and Sichuan Boss soften each other up then he could roll past them. TOP LAURELS might not get favours from his draw but he hit the line strongly following a good speed last start. I’m happy to back Planet Star primarily here though with a smaller outlay on Sichuan Boss.

SICHUAN BOSS and PLANET STAR can contest the lead here and in the initial stages the pace should be at least GOOD. DRAGON LIPS may well be ridden positively and LET’S TAKE IT EASY looks likely to get a decent run.
