Happy Valley December 23rd

Divine Boy goes whooooshka........

What a win by Divine Boy! Up in class he looked too far back to reel in the metronomic front runner Romantic Cash. Divine Boy was a little too short for our liking @$1.60, so we had a bet on Berlini who flew for 3rd. In retrospect an each way play on Berlini should have been the play at $18 the win and $4.60 the place.

Race 4
Race 4

1st - Vara Pearl

2nd - Silver Dragon

3rd - System Overload

Race Note: Vara Pearl was well ridden by Moreira rated to its form not its jockey at $12, it won at an SP of $6. We backed System Overload and he ran a mighty race close up in third. Rated a $10 chance, as much as $34 was available (mostly $26) at the jump. Never Better our other bet was advised early was backed from $34 into $13 and had a torrid run, racing wide and getting buffeted. In the book and will pay to follow

Race Note:  A good race for us. Forever Red was $9 at advice and firmed right into $6.50. Top rater Energetic Class was unders and ran 4th. A glowing yard report for Forever Red and an average one for the fave saw confidence rise.
