Sha Tin horse racing tips

Race 1. (15:00) Suffolk C5 Handicap (1200m)

#4 – Regency Poet – Bet @ Sportsbet

The five-year-old comes off a second placing at Sha Tin and that should be the best form for this race.

It’s not the strongest field and although he’s yet to win from 16 starts, having Joao Moreira in the saddle shouldn’t dent his chances.

Look for value in the first.

Race 2. (15:30) Cornwall C3 Handicap (1000m)

#1 – When You Believe – Bet @ Sportsbet

The Frankie Lor-trained four-year-old is a four-time winner from 11 starts and that’s a fine record.

He comes off a third placing at Sha Tin behind Valiant Dream and there is nothing wrong with that form going forward.

Barrier four is ideal and punters should get each-way odds.

Race 3. (16:00) Dorset C3 Handicap (1650m)

#4 – Tangmere – Bet @ Sportsbet

Tangmere is facing a tough field here but we think he’s the value pick. He is a four-time winner that scored at Happy Valley two back and he went well last time out.

The six-year-old son of Frankel finished third at Sha Tin and although he’s yet to win on the track, he has been close on two occasions.

Barrier two with a light weight should help.

Race 4. (16:30) Somerset C4 Handicap (1800m)

#4 – Ezra – Bet @ Sportsbet

Ezra might not have the best form but he went well when third at Sha Tin last start and Joao Moreira stays in the saddle.

The five-year-old gelding runs his best races on this track and he doesn’t have much in terms of opposition in this race.

Punters could get each-way odds and he only needs luck from the barrier.

Race 5. (17:00) Norfolk C4 Handicap (1650m)

#1 – Double Take – Bet @ Sportsbet

Caspar Fownes lines up the four-year-old gelding that owns three wins from 10 starts at Sha Tin, which bodes well.

The son of Declaration of War scored by a half-length last start and he’s capable of producing consecutive wins on Saturday.

Karis Teetan rides and money should come on race day.

Race 6. (17:35) Cumberland C3 Handicap (1200m)

#3 – Man Star – Bet @ Sportsbet

The four-year-old is always around the mark and he owns four wins from just 12 career starts.

One of those wins came three back and although he hasn’t won since, he looked good when running third at Sha Tin two back.

It’s another good ride for Karis Teetan and he could make it pay.

Race 7. (18:05) Essex C4 Handicap (1200m)

#9 – Little Thunder – Bet @ Sportsbet

Most of the money should come for Little Thunder, which comes off an impressive 2.5-length win on this track.

The five-year-old now owns two wins and three placings at Sha Tin and he looks more than capable of repeating the dose on Saturday.

55.5kg helps and we’re expecting big things.

Race 8. (18:35) Kent C4 Handicap (1400m)

#8 – So Awesome – Bet @ Sportsbet

So Awesome isn’t far off producing his first win after 13 starts for seven placings. The Tsui-trained gelding isn’t in the easiest field as a maiden, but he has been running well enough.

He ran third at Sha Tin last time out and getting the services of Joao Moreira for this run is an ideal situation.

Punters could get value odds on race day.

Race 9. (19:10) Alnwick C2 Handicap (1200m)

#3 – Golden Dash – Bet @ Sportsbet

Golden Dash scored a win at Happy Valley last preparation and although beaten last time out, he should have strengthened after the spell.

The six-year-old son of Snitzel is a five-time winner having his first start at Sha Tin and he looks a strong chance of returning as a winner.

Barrier four is ideal and Zac Purton rides.

Race 10. (19:45) Devon C3 Handicap (1400m)

#1 – Perfect to Great – Bet @ Sportsbet

We wouldn’t call the four-year-old great, but he’s a one-race winner with plenty of upside. He scored his only win in Australia before coming to Hong Kong after running second behind Serious Liaison at Caulfield.

His form since has been only fair, but he comes off a tidy third placing and that form should be a good guide for this contest.

It is another quality ride for Purton.
