Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (22:15) Tseung Kwan O Handicap (1200m)
#7 – Encore Boy – Bet Now
The six-year-old is a five-time winner from 29 starts that also boasts 10 minor placings. He comes into this race having won at Sha Tin by 1.3 lengths.
It was a solid effort last start and he carried 59.5kg to victory. He drops in weight for this race and he should be well-backed come race night.
Race 2. (22:45) Yau Tong C5 Handicap (1650m)
#8 – Will Power – Bet Now
Will Power is unbeaten from two starts and he’s going to attract a lot of attention with bookmakers.
The Douglas Whyte-trained son of Power won by 1.5 lengths on debut before winning by 2.3 lengths last time out. It was a win of a runner going places and he could remain unbeaten.
Expect to see some big bets come his way.
Race 3. (23:15) Po Lam C4 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Holy Heart – Bet Now
Five-year-old gelding Holy Heart hasn’t done much wrong throughout his career with two wins and seven placings.
The son of Holy Roman Emperor was only a half-length behind the winner last start and that form stacks up well for this race.
He hasn’t won for over a year but that could change on Wednesday night.
Race 4. (23:45) Po Lam C4 Handicap (1200m)
#3 – Undefeated – Bet Now
The son of Shamus Award isn’t undefeated but he does enter this race with a last-start win at Sha Tin.
He scored by a nose over Power King and we’re expecting that form to hold up well for the rest of the season.
Staying at the 1200m distance is ideal and with the right run in transit, he could double down and win again.
Race 5. (00:15) Tiu Keng Leng C4 Handicap (1650m)
#6 – Wonder Brahma – Bet Now
Wonder Brahma was running on nicely when third at Happy Valley last start and he could score an overdue win.
He’s trained by David Hall and he owns experience at Sha Tin when running third on debut in December.
That’s going to help his chances and the New Zealand-bred could go close at generous odds.
Race 6. (00:45) Hang Hau C3 Handicap (1200m)
#12 – Megatron – Bet Now
Megatron has been a solid play for punters this season and he could continue his run of good. The eight-year-old won in December and hasn’t done too much wrong since.
He is coming off consecutive placings and he was only a half-length behind Foodie King earlier this month. That form looks solid enough to be considered against an even field.
Race 7. (01:15) Lam Tin C3 Handicap (1800m)
#5 – Royal Chocolate – Bet Now
It’s taking Royal Chocolate a long time to break his maiden status but it could come here. He has had 24 starts for eight placings and no wins.
The son of So You Think was under a length behind the winner last start and he should be able to reproduce that effort.
Muster the will to back him again.
Race 8. (01:50) Cha Kwo Ling C2 Handicap (1200m)
#9 – Master Bernini – Bet Now
Master Bernini is another runner looking to score his maiden win after 25 attempts. The son of Bernardini hasn’t been far away from the prize this season, so stick with him.
Two of his last four starts have been second placings and punters should be able to get double-figure odds.
