Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:00) The Griffin Challenge (1200m)
#1 – California Spangle – Bet @ Sportsbet
California Spangle looked the goods when beating a similar field on debut at Sha Tin. The Tony Cruz-trained three-year-old won by a length, so it was a professional outing.
He paid only $2 to win, so the hype has been there from the outset and punters should feel confident with California Spangle on Sunday.
Race 2. (15:30) The Purves Quaich C5 Handicap (2200m)
#4 – Amazing Agility – Bet @ Sportsbet
Amazing Agility is a nine-year-old that continues to run good races and he can’t be overlooked.
The five-time winner has scored four placings in his last five starts and his best racing has come at Sha Tin.
Punters should get value odds in an even betting field.
Race 3. (16:00) The Swaine Cup C5 Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Breeze of Spring – Bet @ Sportsbet
Breeze of Spring owns only one win from 27 starts, but his recent efforts have been solid and punters should stick with him.
The five-year-old gelding finished fourth last time out and dropping in grade helps. It also helps to have Joao Moreira in the saddle, so punters should be confident.
Watch for late betting moves.
Race 4. (16:30) The Wong Cup C4 Handicap (1200m)
#11 – Steel Win – Bet @ Sportsbet
Steel Win hasn’t shown his best form to date, but the three-year-old gets Moreira in the saddle and that’s a bonus.
The son of Press Statement comes off a career-best finish for fourth and that’s a good sign, so he could rise to the next level.
Carrying 53kg is ideal, so put on top.
Race 5. (17:00) The Li Cup C4 Handicap (1200m)
#3 – Untold Riches – Bet @ Sportsbet
Untold Riches finished third on debut at Sha Tin and although well beaten last time out, punters shouldn’t rule him out.
The son of Swiss Ace gets every chance from barrier two and having Zac Purton in the saddle boosts his chances of success.
Early money has come and it could pay to follow further betting moves.
Race 6. (17:35) The Arculli Trophy C4 (1600m)
#1 – Ever Laugh – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ever Laugh wasn’t too far behind them last start and his form prior was solid. He won four starts back at Happy Valley and he rarely runs a bad race.
The son of Savabeel has finished in the money in three of his last 10 starts and that form could be good enough to score.
Jerry Chau takes 2kg off his back to help with the weight.
Race 7. (18:05) The Chan Trophy C4 (1400m)
#9 – Galaxy Emperor – Bet @ Sportsbet
The son of Verrazano scored a win three back at Sha Tin and his subsequent runs have been solid efforts.
He was only 1.8 lengths behind the winner last time out and he gets an inside draw with a light weight on his back, which helps.
Karis Teetan rides and that is another positive.
Race 8. (18:35) The Stevenson Cup C3 (1200m)
#2 – Sight Success – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sight Success scored three consecutive wins to start his career and he’s getting back to that form this season.
The four-year-old son of Magnus won at odds of $1.80, $1.10 and $1.80, but hasn’t won since January. However, his most recent start was a placing and he’s worth sticking with.
Race 9. (19:10) The Ip Jug C2 Handicap (1400m)
#6 – Wind N Grass – Bet @ Sportsbet
Wind N Grass was under a length from the winner last time out and he’s getting closer to a win.
The son of Lawman was good enough to score back-to-back wins earlier this year and punters have been getting juicy odds lately.
Expect a similar price on Sunday.
Race 10. (19:45) The Chow Silver Plate C3 (1600m)
#2 – C P Brave – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Tony Millard-trained runner hasn’t done much wrong since arriving in Hong Kong and he shouldn’t take long to win.
He is a former European that scored wins at Great Yarmouth and Ascot, so he has ability and he’s worth sticking with over the mile.
Punters should get each-way odds.
