Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (16:00) Yuen Shin C5 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Anonyma – Bet @ Sportsbet
Anonyma doesn’t have the best form coming into this race but the six-year-old gelding is a five-time winner overall.
The son of Silvano was only 1.8 lengths behind the winner last start, so that run was better than form indicates.
Getting Joao Moreira in the saddle is a big bonus.
Race 2. (16:30) Tai Po Market C4 Handicap (1000m)
#12 – Bella Baby – Bet @ Sportsbet
The six-year-old owns two wins and three placings at Sha Tin and he is much better than his performance last time out.
He finished eight lengths behind the winner but he scored two wins and two placings prior to that. Both wins came at Sha Tin, so he had been in great form.
Punters should expect a bounce-back effort.
Race 3. (17:00) Lam Tsuen C2 Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Beauty Smile – Bet @ Sportsbet
Beauty Smile comes off back-to-back wins at Sha Tin and his latest was an impressive 1.3-length victory.
The four-year-old son of Free Eagle is set to rise through the grades and he showed his class when placing at Group 3 level on debut in Ireland.
Barrier two is ideal and three consecutive wins is on the cards.
Race 4. (17:30) Wu Kau Tang C4 Handicap (1400m)
#2 – Fortune Master – Bet @ Sportsbet
Fortune Master scored a maiden win two starts back at Sha Tin and he was close enough last start to warrant attention.
The son of Brazen Beau was only 1.5 lengths behind the winner and he only needs good ride from barrier 14 to go close.
Having Joao Moreira in the saddle helps, so consider.
Race 5. (18:00) Ting Kok C4 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Enchanting Start – Bet @ Sportsbet
Enchanting Start ran third as an $81 chance on debut and he was only a nose behind the winner last time out.
The four-year-old gelding was much shorter in the betting and we’re expecting plenty of betting support on Sunday.
Zac Purton rides and barrier two is ideal.
Race 6. (18:35) Yuen Chau Tsai C4 Handicap (1600m)
#7 – Ultra Express – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ultra Express comes off a win at Sha Tin and he could make his way through the grades this season.
The four-year-old son of Power was specked at each-way odds when scoring and it capped off improved form to start his career.
He is still learning the ropes and punters get value odds.
Race 7. (19:05) Tai Po Kau C3 Handicap (1800m)
#2 – Charity Fun – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Charlie Shum-trained gelding has made a positive start to this career, which includes wins at Fairyhouse and at Happy Valley.
He didn’t take long to adjust to life in Hong Kong. His debut effort was a fourth before scoring emphatically by four lengths last time out.
Barrier 11 hurts but he should be right in the mix.
Race 8. (19:35) Pat Sin Leng C3 Handicap (1200m)
#12 – Fantastic Way – Bet @ Sportsbet
Fantastic Way was fantastic on debut when scoring by just under a length. The three-year-old son of Swiss Ace was heavily backed at $1.40 and he didn’t let punters down.
The John Size-trained runner faces a steep rise in class but he gets in with only 52kg and Joao Moreira on his back.
Expect plenty of money to come for him again.
Race 9. (20:10) Nam Wan C3 Handicap (1000m)
#3 – Valiant Dream – Bet @ Sportsbet
Valiant Dream is knocking on the door after four consecutive placings. The five-year-old son of Magnus has been close behind some smart types and this field is there for the taking.
Punters get each-way odds in early betting markets and we expect that price to shorten on race day.
Barrier two is ideal and Zac Purton takes the ride.
Race 10. (20:45) Tai Mei Tuk C3 Handicap (1400m)
#14 – New Future – Bet @ Sportsbet
Coming off a win and a placing is New Future, which scored by 1.8 lengths to break maiden status in January.
The son of The Factor followed it up with a second placing at Sha Tin and he gets into this race with only 52kg on his back.
Punters get each-way odds and he’s a winning contender.
