Oceana Blue ran home really well first up in a good form race over 1800m at Sandown. Unsuited back in trip second up at Caulfield but still ran well and was strong late. Finds the right set up here third up out to the mile and a quarter. Hard to beat.
Informed galloper who was well backed at this track & distance last start and won well thanks to a crafty ride from Matthew Cartwright. Better suited drawn out here and gets a big drop in weight. He will be up on speed making his own luck.
Currently rated a $5.50 chance in the 2500m race on the program. He ran on well last start but he has a habit of doing that and not winning. He is going to need some luck from barrier one and might be half a run short here against some fit horses.

Expect an aggressive ride early and it will be hard to run down. $4.80 Each Way Hettinger (Eagle Farm Race 5 No. 5) Hettinger presents good value at the $12.00 mark. It put in a solid run

Platinum Class | (Belmont Race 2 No.9) This is a very thin maiden race and I reckon this unraced War Chant filly is worth the bet. Her trials have been good and they have been patient with her, so I think she is ready to put her best foot forward in her debut. She has drawn nicely, and has Chris Parnham aboard, so all going well,
Best Bet Our Happy Valley Horse Racing Tips for Tuesday's meeting. You can find all of Josh Reed's articles by clicking here. Dragon Kingdom | (Happy Valley Race 4 No.8) Happy to side with this Holy Roman Emperor gelding who has had a consistent preparation thus far.

He has drawn ideally in
