SUGGESTIONS FOR TONIGHT AT HAPPY VALLEY FROM THE FAST TRACKER

* Have a nap during all the speeches.

LONGINES INTERNATIONAL JOCKEY COMPETITION 18

* Give the suggestions below a go.

R1 FRIENDS OF YAN OI/FIERY RAIDER/TELECOM TOP STAR

Sad to see Tye Angland, who has been riding brilliantly, have only two rides tonight, but maybe Friends Of Yan Oi can salute?

LONGINES INTERNATIONAL JOCKEY COMPETITION 19

With Tommy Berry confirmed for another winter stint and certain to be riding mainly for John Moore, the Hong Kong riding ranks will be the best in the world and where only the strong will survive.

LONGINES INTERNATIONAL JOCKEY COMPETITION 20

R2 BRILLIANT PROPOSAL

Of course Dougie Whyte is keeping a low profile these days while chanting, Akeed Mofeed, but looks like winning this whether he wants to or not.

LONGINES INTERNATIONAL JOCKEY COMPETITION 21

Place chances to D-Day Super and K-Moochie- which sounds like a Japanese poodle.

R3 DOMINEER

Bad barrier draw but Purton can walk on water these days.

LONGINES INTERNATIONAL JOCKEY COMPETITION 22

R4 BOTH SURE/RAINBOW FIGHTER/HAPPY YEAH YEAH

Throw in Cour Valant after showing first signs of form at last start while Swift Shadow is enigmatic- meaning, it might have won its race.

R5 REDWOOD BABY/WINNING MASCOT/YOUNG TALENT

The first leg of the International Jockeys Competition and HUUUGE bets being placed as to whether Ryan Moore will crack a smile if Redwood Baby wins- or crack a shit if he doesn’t. Gawd, he looks miserable. Someone take him to Escape!

LONGINES INTERNATIONAL JOCKEY COMPETITION 23

WARNING: Something to take note of is that David Hall, its new trainer, has removed the blinkers and Norton bit and replaced the ring bit on old-timer Good Luck Win which has done nothing to date. When Hall starts changing gear- beep beep- watch out.

LONGINES INTERNATIONAL JOCKEY COMPETITION 24

R6 SOUTHERN SPRINGS/PERFECT MOMENT/HOLY MAC

Holy crap, Batman, I have no idea how these visitors will ride these horses!

LONGINES INTERNATIONAL JOCKEY COMPETITION 25

R7 CHARITY JOY/ST YAZIN/BUNDLE OF JOY/FUN N GAMES

Another opportunity to possibly see Ryan Moore crack a smile and shatter a few mirrors.

LONGINES INTERNATIONAL JOCKEY COMPETITION 26

This race promises to be a real speed battle but my eyes will be on Dougie Whyte taking riding instructions from Tony Millard, both of whom had a very acrimonious and public spat and banana split over Ambitious Dragon.

LONGINES INTERNATIONAL JOCKEY COMPETITION 27

Grab a chair, get some popcorn and watch the show

R8 MAJESTIC ANTHEM/GREAT CHARM/RIDE WITH THE WIND/FLYING ELITE

The toughest leg of the Jockey Challenge made all the more confusing by Almond Lee making all kinds of changes in gear to First Sight Love to be ridden by Richard Hughes. But does Almond Lee know what he’s doing?

LONGINES INTERNATIONAL JOCKEY COMPETITION 29

R9 ALBICELESTE/BUBBLE CHIC/LUCKY FOREVER/IT HAS TO BE YOU

A great ending to the card with quite a few chances though I think the winner will come out of one of the four above with Brett Prebble riding Bubble Chic for old mate David Hall being of great interest.

LONGINES INTERNATIONAL JOCKEY COMPETITION 30

If there is to be a blowout, it could be Bankster’s Bonus which is much better than recent runs for, er, Benno Yung- not a stable I have much faith in- have shown. It’s run more like a Wanker’s Bonus but just could go KABOOM here.

BEST BET: R2 BRILLIANT PROPOSAL (5)
NEXT BEST: R3 DOMINEER (1)
LONGSHOT: R9 BUBBLE CHIC (12)
