R7 CLEVELAND HANDICAP

-


Happy Valley (M36) - Wednesday, 9 January 2019

22:15 HK TIME

summary


I expect a decent tempo here with a number of gallopers that could ensure pace. I think there is a good each way outlay here with HAR HAR HEART. Joao Moreira, quite rightly, took off early last time when fifth to Dances With Dragon and peaked on his run on that occasion. He can be ridden a touch more conservatively this time and with more pressure up front I believe he can capitalise. PERFECT GLORY maps nicely, should appreciate the move up to a mile and his overall form is hard to fault. He looks a genuine contender, but is conceding 5kg to Har Har Heart. MY ALLY finished ahead of Har Har Heart the last time they clashed, but I see more pressure applied here and he might have to work a little more through the early stages. We were keen on RACING LUCK when he raced in late November and he returned with ‘blood in the trachea’. He has trialed well since so I’m happy to give him another chance. So I recommend Har Har Heart as an each way outlay for the Best Selections and Strategies. If you can secure more than $8.00 around Racing Luck then I suggest considering a unit on him.
