Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:15) Lok Wah C4 Handicap (1000m)
#6 – Dublin Star – Bet Now
Manfred Man lines up the son of Savabeel that ran well on debut at Sha Tin. He finished fifth behind Iron Boy as the $1.60 favourite, but punters should stick with him.
He’s a nicely-bred type that gets the services of jockey Joao Moreira. He will need to produce a good ride from barrier 12, but he’s the man for the job.
Race 2. (15:45) Wang Tau Hom C5 Handicap (1800m)
#11 – Sky Gem – Bet Now
Sky Gem is coming off a win at Happy Valley and that form could hold up nicely this Saturday.
The Caspar Fownes-trained four-year-old scored impressively by 2.8 lengths and it was a good way to break through maiden grades.
Punters should get each-way odds.
Race 3. (16:15) Ngau Tau Kok C4 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Confucius Day – Bet Now
Confucius Day is knocking on the door after consecutive second placings. The five-year-old was only a half-length behind the winner last start, which is good form.
The son of Ocean Park has finished in the money in 10 of his 27 starts and the 4.5kg coming off his back is ideal.
Stick with him.
Race 4. (16:45) Sau Mau Ping C4 Handicap (1400m)
#3 – King’s Race – Bet Now
The four-year-old scored its breakthrough win at Sha Tin in October before rising in grade and running well.
He finished fourth when fresh up last start and he’s going to derive a lot of benefit from that effort.
Drawing barrier four is ideal and Matthew Poon takes 1kg off his back.
Race 5. (17:15) Lok Fu C3 Handicap (1800m)
#9 – I Do – Bet Now
I Do looked to have a big future when he first started, but he hasn’t quite lived up to expectations.
However, he’s still a talented type which could return to winning form at any given moment. That could be this Saturday and he ran nicely for fourth last start.
Karis Teetan takes the ride with only 55.5kg on his back.
Race 6. (17:50) Kai Yip C3 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Lone Eagle – Bet Now
Lone Eagle could fly and he has been going through his gears so far this season.
The five-year-old has only one win from 14 starts, but he’s going off a good fifth at Sha Tin and this is an easier field.
Punters have been waiting for a return to form and it could come here.
Race 7. (18:20) Choi Wan C2 Handicap (1600m)
#7 – Preciousship – Bet Now
The five-year-old is in hot form having won three of his last four starts. That included a good win at Sha Tin last start, which continued his fine run of form.
He is a five-time winner from only 18 starts and he deserves to be the favourite for this race.
Most of the early money has come his way and we’re not expecting that to slow down.
Race 8. (18:50) Lei Yue Mun C3 Handicap (1400m)
#8 – Big Fortune – Bet Now
Big Fortune has been in grand form all season and he’s a big chance of going well again.
The five-year-old has won twice this season and hasn’t finished worse than third at his other four starts.
The son of Moshe looks a good chance of keeping his form intact and punters are getting value odds.
Race 9. (19:25) Choi Hung C2 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Voyage Warrior – Bet Now
Coming off a win at Sha Tin, Voyage Warrior is a good chance of going back-to-back. The four-year-old won by three lengths in a commanding fashion.
He’s a four-time winner from only seven starts and we’re confident he’s good enough to take out the feature race.
Getting the inside draw only helps his chances.
Race 10. (20:00) Lei Yue Mun C3 Handicap (1400m)
#3 – Farhh Above – Bet Now
Farhh Above has looked like a promising type of late, which included back-to-back wins. The first win came by 3.3 lengths and he kicked this season off in style.
He scored by just under a length at Sha Tin last start and the form out of that race should hold up nicely.
He goes on top in a tough race.
