R4 LAMBETH HANDICAP

Happy Valley (M42) - Wednesday, 30 January 2019

summary


SUPER LUCKY will probably come up a relatively short-priced favourite in this event and on face value he was impressive when winning his last start (Race 324). He was suited by the race shape however and got a lovely ride. The issue once again is that he will have to go back from a wide barrier and I am not convinced he will get all favours. Consequently, the newcomer from John Size’s yard CHAMPION’S WAY makes some appeal. He performed well in barrier trials in Australia prior to arriving in Hong Kong and his Happy Valley trial was sound. Champion’s Way maps nicely and has had a solid enough preparation to suggest he can win this Class 4 on debut. THE CREATETH comes through some solid form lines but once again, he will need his share of luck from a wide alley. GOUTEN OF GARO is rather weak and has had plenty of opportunities to win but maps to get a soft run and shouldn’t be far away in the finish. I’m happy to speculate on Champion’s Way however on debut.
