Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:00) Racing Goes On C5 Handicap (1200m)
#10 – Exponents – Bet Now
Exponents gets the services of Joao Moreira and that could make all the difference. The six-year-old goes well at Sha Tin and he has been getting close to a win.
Carrying 54kg on his back is going to help and there are no superstars in this field. He could take advantage and go close.
Race 2. (15:30) World-Class Leadership C5 Handicap (1400m)
#13 – Red Brick Fighter – Bet Now
David Hall lines up the four-year-old gelding that is getting close to a win. The son of Artie Schiller finished third to start this campaign and he has been close since.
He only owns one placing from 14 career starts but it is another good ride for Moreira and that will shorten the odds considerably.
Race 3. (16:00) Uncompromising Integrity C4 (1400m)
#3 – Pearl Champion – Bet Now
Pearl Champion is looking to go one better than he did last time out at Sha Tin. The Tony Millard-trained gelding ran a head behind the winner and he typically goes well second-up.
His form has steadily improved for some time now and with luck from the draw, he should figure in the finish.
Race 4. (16:30) Serving The Community C4 Handicap (1800m)
#7 – Eptiwins – Bet Now
Eptiwins has placed in four of his 14 starts and he’s overdue a win. The Hall-trained runner finished second by a nose two starts back and he wasn’t far away last start.
Most of his best racing has come at Sha Tin and with Zac Purton in the saddle, punters should be expecting a top effort.
Race 5. (17:00) Continuous Development C4 Handicap (1200m)
#4 – Monkey Jewellery – Bet Now
We are sticking with Monkey Jewelley despite the five-year-old finishing seventh last time out.
The John Size-trained gelding showed good form when running third in three consecutive starts, which were all good efforts.
Drawing barrier three is ideal and Moreira rides.
Race 6. (17:30) Riding High Together C4 Handicap (1200m)
#3 – Thou Shall Sing – Bet Now
The five-year-old is coming off a win at Sha Tin and he is good enough to go back-to-back. He scored by a short margin last start and it should give him confidence.
He was able to beat Pearl Champion and that form could stack up earlier on the card. It has his second win from his last four starts and there is nothing wrong with that form.
Race 7. (18:05) The Guangdong Hong Kong Cup C3 (1200m)
#1 – Excellent Proposal – Bet Now
The John Size-trained gelding has won three of his four starts and they all came in Australia. His only defeat came behind Embracer and that form looks good for this race.
He won at Rosehill last start in December and although off the scene for six months, he could make a winning debut in Hong Kong.
Race 8. (18:40) The H.K. Reunification C2 Cup (1800m)
#7 – Righteous Doctrine – Bet Now
The five-year-old is a six-time winner and punters could get value odds this time around. He scored a win on this track two starts back and he is tough to beat on his day.
Having Joao Moreira in the saddle helps and given his recent form of three wins from his last five starts, he should go close again.
Race 9. (19:15) Sportsmanship C3 Handicap (1600m)
#3 – Delightful Laos – Bet Now
Tony Cruz lines up the three-year-old colt that found immediate form in Hong Kong. The son of Baltic King has gone close in two starts since that win, so his form stacks up well here.
Karis Teetan rides and he was in the saddle last start, which bodes well for another good run here.
Look for each-way odds.
Race 10. (19:50) Better Future C3 Handicap (1000m)
#4 – War of Courage – Bet Now
War of Courage is a consistent runner that has finished in the money in all eight starts. He has scored two wins and six placings, so he is a runner on the rise.
Punters won’t be getting big odds for this runner but anything above $2.50 would be a fantastic price.
