The first Happy Valley meeting of the season gets underway tomorrow and Dennis Yip Chor-hung can provide valuable assistance in the opening two legs of the Triple Trio by saddling up the likely bankers in Shogun and French Connection. Shogun was heavily supported on a number of occasions last season due to some positive trackwork and he has carried that through this term with a stylish trial win on the all-weather. In the opening leg, the son of Langfuhr drops back to the minimum distance for the first time and that shorter trip could make all the difference. One that looks a serious threat is King Of Garoupa, who was most impressive in his only start last season when third to Happy Years over the course and distance. His recent trial was good enough to suggest he can figure. Few have a better record over the course and distance than Amity, who has fallen to a competitive mark and could prove hard to catch in front. Easy King is another specialist over the trip and from a low barrier must be respected, while both Manifest and Back Seat Driver will need luck in running from poor alleys. However, both have displayed enough quality to fill a minor placing. Yip has the safest option in the middle leg with city specialist French Connection, who comes into this event very well handicapped. He shaped nicely in a recent turf trial without being pressured and given his consistent record over the Valley mile, he should have every chance to hit the frame once again. Divine Feeling is a multiple winner over the course and distance and comes into this race competitively weighted so he warrants respect. Equus Zephyrus won first-up last year and was most impressive in winning a dirt barrier trial last month. Caspar Fownes has his yard in fine fettle and a top run is expected. Good Boy was an unlucky fourth to Smart Win over the course and trip last term and both have place claims. Likely leader Chariot Of Wei Hai has managed to make the frame in five of his eight starts at the distance and must be respected also. The best option for a banker in the final leg has to be Dashing Champion, who has two wins and a second placing from four attempts over the 1,200 metres. He was first past the post first-up last season before losing the race in the stewards room and looks on target for a bold showing once again with Douglas Whyte on board. The recent trial of My Chief indicated he was primed for a top run over his pet trip and with a solid pace he should be able to make the frame. There are few in this grade more consistent than Sir Octavius, who must be included, while Songs Of The Sun may prove hard to run down if there is not too much pressure in front. Amo lost his way toward the end of last term but has a decent course-and-distance record and makes enough appeal to warrant inclusion. Tiramisu won his only start over Valley mile last season when notching his first win and looks the logical banker option in Race Three. Show Bravely looks better than this grade and has solid claims, while Chater Lane will need some luck from a wide alley but is one for the shortlist. Both Quick Step and Mehboob The Third are good enough to feature in their best form.
