Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (14:00) Wong Shek C5 Handicap (1200m)
#10 – Golden Mission – Bet @ Sportsbet
Golden Mission comes off consecutive third placings and he has been best backed in early markets.
The six-year-old has yet to win from 30 starts, which isn’t ideal, but he owns nine placings. It’s not an overly good field, so he could finally score a breakthrough win.
Carrying 52kg is ideal, so it brings him into contention.
Race 2. (14:30) Long Ke C3 Handicap (1000m)
#5 – Alcari – Bet @ Sportsbet
The seven-year-old son of All Too Hard has been in solid form recently with a win and a placing.
He is a four-time winner at Sha Tin, so he has the experience edge and punters should be confident of a big effort.
Having Joao Moreira in the saddle helps and barrier three should give him every chance in the run.
Race 3. (15:00) Luk Wu C3 Handicap (1200m)
#4 – Armour Eagle – Bet @ Sportsbet
Armour Eagle is a former Australian who won his first two starts at Doomben before running second at Ipswich.
His two runs since moving to Hong Kong have been solid, including a last-start second placing behind Romantic Warrior.
It won’t take him long to win again and it’s another good ride for Moreira.
Race 4. (15:30) Wong Yi Chau C5 Handicap (1400m)
#6 – Brave Power – Bet @ Sportsbet
Brave Power took 17 starts to break maidens but he has now produced consecutive winning performances.
The five-year-old son of Declaration of War broke maidens by 1.3 lengths at Sha Tin and he fought gamely to hold them off last start.
He should get every chance from barrier four and be in the thick of the action.
Race 5. (16:00) Pak Tam Chung C4 Handicap (1000m)
#2 – Whizz Kid – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old colt has been around the mark from five career starts and he’s not far off a winning effort.
He owns three second placings and he has been well-backed in every start, so there is stable confidence. His most recent effort for fourth was solid and he hasn’t been facing easy fields.
Moreira rides from a good draw, so punters shouldn’t expect big odds.
Race 6. (16:35) Tai Long Tsui C4 Handicap (1200m)
#10 – Smart Wongchoy – Bet @ Sportsbet
Smart Wongchoy is knocking on the door of an overdue win after 19 fruitless attempts.
The five-year-old son of Smart Missile owns nine placings from those 19 starts, including consecutive second placings this time in.
He finished only a short margin behind Pins Price and we think he can turn the tables at a slightly better price.
Race 7. (17:05) Chek Keng C2 Handicap (1600m)
#4 – Master of Delight – Bet @ Sportsbet
Master of Delight has been a consistent type since arriving in Hong Kong from Australia, so he goes on top.
The John Size-trained son of Rubick showed his best form when running third in the Stan Fox Stakes before finishing seventh in the Australian Guineas.
He owns a win and two placings since arriving in Hong Kong, so he’s a runner worth following.
Race 8. (17:35) Tai Tan C4 Handicap (1400m)
#5 – Super Mission – Bet @ Sportsbet
Super Mission owns a win and six placings from 14 starts, so he’s never too far away from the prize.
The five-year-old son of Super Easy went close at Sha Tin last start behind Good Runner, which should be an excellent form guide.
Karis Teetan rides and punters get each-way odds.
Race 9. (18:10) Tai Tan C4 Handicap (1400m)
#5 – Happy Daily – Bet @ Sportsbet
Happy Daily comes off a win at Sha Tin and he looks good enough to kick on with it.
The son of Pins will need to do some work off a wide draw, but Karis Teetan rides and he only needs luck to get it done.
Punters should get each-way odds on race night.
Race 10. (18:45) Pak Tam Au C3 Handicap (1400m)
#3 – Beauty Champ – Bet @ Sportsbet
Beauty Champ looked good in his Hong Kong debut when running fourth behind Prime Minister.
The Charlie Shum-trained five-year-old was only two lengths behind the winner, so it was a nice effort fresh up.
There has been a solid betting push, so keep it safe.
