Nervous Witness | (Happy Valley Race 9 No.1) / Stoltz | (Happy Valley Race 9 No.8)

Blink and you will miss this race. Nervous Witness has drawn ideally to storm to the lead and hold the rail. He was massive once again last start, albeit with a scare late in the race by Stoltz, who he will again face in this contest. He will look the winner for a long way. Stoltz will meet Nervous Witness 1kg better off at the weights and he is drawn to get a gorgeous run right behind him. Zac Purton stated that if you swapped the gates last start, he beats Nervous Witness, well this time I reckon he gets an even better chance to knock him off. Hopefully one of these two machines is saluting to end the night on a high.

Suggested bet: 1.2 units @ $3.40 / 1.4 units @ $2.90

Next Best

Rewarding Together | (Happy Valley Race 7 No.1) / Sky Forever | (Happy Valley Race 7 No.8) / California Redwood | (Happy Valley Race 7 No.6)

Gone with a three-pronged attack here and I am confident we can get the chocolates. Rewarding Together has had a nice 60-day break since going down 1.25 lengths to Armour Eagle at this track and distance and has trialled well two times since. He generally goes well first-up, has an ideal draw, and his regular jockey aboard. He goes on top for me. Sky Forever goes into the numbers on the back of a tremendous draw out of barrier four. This will enable him to sit closer in the run and the last two times he got a draw like this he finished under a length in second both times. He is always thereabouts with decent draws, so I expect it to be no different tonight. California Redwood is an improving horse and gets a solid jockey booking here which indicates to me he should be ready to rock and roll. The draw is okay and should get adequate cover and he will be coming late. It does scare me that I have left out Star Brite with Purton aboard, but that’s the risk I am taking.

Suggested bet: 1.3 units @ $3.30 / 0.7 unit @ $6.00 / 0.5 unit @ $8.00

The Rest of the Card

Other Bets

Xponential | (Happy Valley Race 6 No.1)

This bloke has been knocking on the door for some time this preparation and he finally gets a highly winnable race and the draw to boot. His run last time out was good despite copping bumps from Peak to Peak at the 250m and again at the 100m mark, which proved vital in my opinion. He is something to marvel at this horse, who has had seven starts this preparation and finished within a length and no further back than fourth. I think he is well weighted despite lumping the 60kg (based on handicap ratings) and the booking of Hewitson is good as he rides Happy Valley well and also is a good front riding jockey.

Suggested bet: 1.1 units @ $3.80

Viva Hunter | (Happy Valley Race 8 No.8)

I have been hanging for this guy to come back since his defeat to Packing Award. I loved his recent trial where he was well held throughout and I think he is ready for something big, it’s just a shame he has drawn the outside barrier, though in saying that the speed isn’t that great so he should get across no worries. Joao sticks and he remains down in weight.

Suggested bet: 0.8 unit @ $5.00

Our Swan Hill Horse Racing Tips for Sunday's meeting. Best Bets Joe's Giggle (Swan Hill Race 4 No. 3) Joe's Giggle ran really well for the new stable and wouldn't have to improve much to be taking this out.
