Brett Prebble begins his abbreviated season Wednesday night with two rides at Happy Valley and Bundle Of Joy looms as a strong winning chance for the Aussie in the middle leg of the Triple Trio, reports Racing Post HK. Prebble was allowed to skip the first six weeks of the season to attend to business matters in his homeland, but kept in shape riding regularly through the busy Melbourne spring carnival.

He returns and reclaims the ride on well-built sprinter Bundle Of Joy, with whom he has formed a strong association. Both of Bundle of Joy's wins have been with Prebble in the saddle and both have been over 1,000m - one at Happy Valley and the other up the Sha Tin straight.

Trainer David Hall now steps the son of underrated sire Magic Albert up to the Valley 1,200m for the first time. Bundle Of Joy has a tricky draw in six, but should get to a one-off position, and the distance remains the biggest query.

Two starts back the four-year-old didn't run out a hard 1,200m on the all-weather track, but was pushed to lead from gate seven and worked in the run. He was then third in what looks a strong form race over 1,000m at Sha Tin, disadvantaged somewhat by sitting more than three horses off the outside rail and beaten 3-1/2 lengths by Access Years.

Bundle Of Joy carries 131 pounds but seems to have a class edge on most of these, and others are badly hindered by poor draws on the B course.

Richard Gibson's Jazzy Feeling (Olivier Doleuze) would be right in this had he not drawn horrendously in 10. He has done all of his racing at the course and distance, has come back in rock solid form with two thirds and should be peaking third run in.

The other danger is the Ricky Yiu Poon-fai-trained Atacx (Neil Callan), who has drawn three and would benefit from gaining some cover.

Atacx's last start seventh over 1,400m at Sha Tin was a total forgive when pushed at the start and then trapped three-deep with no cover. Two starts back he was again clicked up out of the gates and overdid it when sitting outside dominant winner Super Jockey, finishing fifth.
