Who To Follow At Happy Valley On Wednesday - 08/12/21

Happy Valley - December 08 2021
Happy Valley 14:10
Hollie Doyle

Winning Method

Hollie Doyle
C S Shum
Age: 5
Weight: 9-7
OR: 80
Days: 14

The penultimate race of the afternoon is the Class 3 event over six furlongs and we think Hollie Doyle can land another winner at Happy Valley with Winning Method.

Having won at the track last year she will have huge experience round the tight course this term and teaming up with the consistent Winning Method gives her a big chance.

The five year old was a good third over course and distance two starts ago and then backed that up last time out when placing again from stall 11.

In stall two today, he should go closer.


Trainer To Follow - David Hayes

Trainer David Hayes is super handler from Australia that has landed close to 100 Group One events and holds the title of being the youngest member to be admitted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame.

At Happy Valley on Wednesday he has some huge chances to get into the winners enclosure, with his best chance coming from Ai One with Ryan Moore on board.

Another big hopeful for the yard on the day is the Sight Hero who won in first time blinkers two starts ago and has since placed off a higher mark.

Jockey To Follow - Zac Purton

The Happy Valley maestro is looking to have a big day against some of the best British jockeys in the sport and having more experience round the track could be the difference.

Purton's bes chances of the day come from Sight Hero in the Class 4 Handicap over six furlongs and also Shining Gem in another six furlong affair, having the plum draw.

The experienced rider heads into the meeting currently running at a 25% strike rate for the last two weeks having managed nine winners from his last 35 rides.
