Bank on Basil Marcus in the opening leg of tomorrow night's Happy Valley Triple Trio. The five-time champion jockey has few peers round the idiosyncratic city circuit and few peers when it comes to getting one to run into the placings. And that's all the bankers have to do when it comes to the Triple Trio, which operates on races three, four and six and requires punters to find the first three, in any order, in all of these events. Marcus looks a significant booking for the Derek Cruz-trained Tea For You, who goes very well at the Valley and has put in two good runs over a mile there on his past two outings. The five-year-old New Zealand-bred gelding battled on gamely when fifth to Merry Maple on his final start of last season over a mile, when wide for much of the way against better company than he faces tomorrow night. And on his seasonal reappearance he put in another game and creditable effort when third to Most Delighted and Invincible. Tea For You was ridden by the inexperienced apprentice Angus Au when third to Most Delighted and made up good ground from the rear during a meeting which appeared to favour the front-runners. He was also wide but it was a funny kind of meeting as plenty of horses got home from out wide so being out there was not necessarily against him, despite commonsense dictating otherwise. Outside of Tea For You, this Class Five, 1,800-metre contest is a difficult affair. Magic Dreams, from the Bruce Hutchison stable, ran well enough on his reappearance and is now down to an attractive handicap mark. The brilliant Australian jockey, Patrick Payne, rides and that is a big plus factor. Eric Saint-Martin has a happy knack of giving just about all his mounts a copybook ride at the Valley. He did so last time on Invincible and he's likely to do so again from barrier six. Rich In Faith is nothing special but he is open to improvement. Fay Fay could be the best banker in the fourth and don't be put off by the booking of Danny Lee for David Hayes with stable rider Marcus on the bottomweight, Sumotori, for his old guv'nor, dual champion trainer Ivan Allan. Fay Fay has been showing even more speed than ever in his work and looks to be going great guns for Hayes, who has his team very forward in condition. Lee is excellent on these front-runners and could well make all on Fay Fay. The topweight, Perfect Smile, worked very sweetly on Saturday morning and the Tony Cruz-Douglas Whyte combination from barrier two makes him hard to leave out of Triple Trio consideration. Clear Classic habitually races well fresh and looks like getting the fast-run race that he needs and that is a pace which should also assist Shaxi Treasure. Thatsaknownfact is another who has been working along better than ever and he most certainly comes into the reckoning, while Star Of Marble caught the eye first time out this season and is perhaps the best outsider in the field. Plenty Success is undoubtedly the best horse in the sixth event, hence the topweight and the fact that he's the only Class Three performer taking a voluntary demotion into this Class Four, 1,800-metre event. He is worth close attention on that 'class' factor alone but is making his seasonal debut and is likely to progress a pound or two for the outing. Nansen should now be rippling fit after two runs and the 1,800-metre distance suits him well. Furioso finds it hard to win but he ran creditably on his reappearance when placed behind Braveheart. Golden Bullet put in a promising effort first up and should be suited by tomorrow night's extra distance. While down at the bottom of the handicap scale, Super Lord, Healthy Star, and Sound Gallop all have strong claims.
