Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:15) Orchid C4 Handicap (1200m)
#12 – Supreme Witness – Bet Now
The six-year-old gelding is coming off a win at Sha Tin and he’s capable of going back-to-back here.
Trained by Tony Cruz, the son of Stryker scored narrowly last month and he drops in weight from 58.5kg to 52.5kg for this.
It’s not the strongest field and having Joao Moreira in the saddle helps.
Race 2. (15:45) Orchid C4 Handicap (1650m)
#1 – Power King – Bet Now
Another Cruz-trained runner, Power King could give the stable and early double. The four-year-old gelding ran within a nose of breaking through at Sha Tin last start.
He had to navigate a wide draw and that didn’t help his chances. Drawing barrier six with Zac Purton riding will help his chances, so keep him safe.
Early money has been placed on Power King to win.
Race 3. (16:15) Rose C5 Handicap (1400m)
#2 – Victorious Leader – Bet Now
Victorious Leader is looking to go back-to-back after scoring impressive in December.
The five-year-old Kiwi-bred runner won by 2.3 lengths on this track and the form in behind him has stacked up nicely.
He will need to carry a big weight for this run, but Zac Purton sticks with him and that’s always a good sign.
Race 4. (16:45) Peach Blossom C4 Handicap (1400m)
#3 – Joyful Heart – Bet Now
We’re going with another Purton ride in Joyful Heart. The four-year-old son of Smart Missile scored a gutsy nose victory last start and he should strengthen from that effort.
Prior to that run he placed at Sha Tin when a length behind the winner. However, his form is much better than what he showed during his first campaign.
He will need luck from barrier 12 but he’s worth following.
Race 5. (17:15) Daisy C3 Handicap (1600m)
#4 – Monica – Bet Now
Monica is knocking on the door of a win after three consecutive second placings. The six-year-old gelding is a five-time winner, so he has plenty of winning ability.
His placings have come behind some fairly smart types and given his 17 starts worth of experience at Sha Tin, he should be able to go well.
Moreira rides and that will drive the odds down.
Race 6. (17:50) Peony C4 Handicap (1650m)
#1 – Dragon Commander – Bet Now
Dragon Commander is finding it tough to win a race but he has upside and could win at nice odds.
The five-year-old has yet to win from 13 starts, but he showed a good turn-of-foot when running second on this track on January 11.
There isn’t much between the majority of this field, so include him in your selections.
Race 7. (18:20) Lily C3 Handicap (1650m)
#8 – Righteous Doctrine – Bet Now
Righteous Doctrine is searching for a win after back-to-back placings and it has found the right race.
The five-year-old ran only 1.3 lengths behind Bear Slam on this track last start and there’s nothing wrong with that form.
He gets a good run from barrier four and the Magic Man rides.
Race 8. (18:50) Cineraria C3 Handicap (1000m)
#12 – Ka Ying Master- Bet Now
Ka Ying Master is capable of winning at this level and he’s coming off a good placing at Sha Tin.
The son of Snitzel wasn’t far behind a good field and he has already showed his winning form when scoring fresh up.
Drawing barrier two is ideal and punters should be able to lock in good value odds.
Race 9. (19:25) Daffodil C3 Handicap (1200m)
#8 – Inner Flame – Bet Now
Inner Flame is unbeaten after two runs and he hasn’t been asked to do much so far.
The four-year-old son of Zoustar won by two lengths in December before scoring by 1.5 lengths on January 11.
Most of the early money has come his way and we’re expecting that to continue. He could start odds on come race day.
Race 10. (20:00) Azalea C2 Handicap (1800m)
#4 – Nicconi Express – Bet Now
Nicconi Express was a good winner three back at Sha Tin and he hasn’t been far away in two runs since.
He drops in weight for this run and carrying 56.5kg with Blake Shinn in the saddle makes him a winning threat.
Value odds will be on offer from bookmakers.
