TONIGHT'S opening Happy Valley race should set punters up for a tremendous evening's sport which is the last time Mick Kinane will be riding in the territory until next October. He is strongly fancied to go out on at least one winner. I know he has big chances according to the form students later on in the programme but my stopwatch tells me his best chance is on Holy Terror (Nap) in the first. Holy Terror has lived up to his name on a good few occasions in the past as he works like a nailed on certainty in the mornings but has not relented to put his best foot forward come his races. That all changed last time out when trainer David Oughton sent him out over tonight's course and distance of 975 metres. There was plenty of speed on throughout as Winning Vic set his usual cracking pace at the head of affairs. Holy Terror chased him genuinely enough and then really went through with his effort to win going away. That was the best time figure Holy Terror has produced and it looks good enough to see him home from a modest field with the exception of Winning Vic and Bounty. Winning Vic also returned his best Topspeed figure in the last couple of seasons when chasinghome Holy Terror and he must be strongly fancied to run the quinella. There is a suggestion that he could have needed the run behind Holy Terror last time out and will be that much fitter tonight. Bounty is basically stepping out over the wrong distance but this is his first run after being off the track for a couple of months. He will do better over farther later in the season and is one to note in running as he could well be winning before the curtain falls on June 5. But he is fresh and the clock says that he can still run the tierce. and may even give Winning Vic something to think about for the quinella spot. The ever-consistent Saint Dragon Hill looks the night's next best bet in the seventh event. His trainer Lam Hung-fie has his horses in excellent form and this looks a bit easier than most of the races Saint Dragon Hill has been contesting of late.
