Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (14:30) Chairman’s Day Griffin Plate (1000m)
#1 – Chancheng Prince – Bet Now
The three-year-old colt has three placings from three starts and he deserves a win. He finished only 1.5 lengths behind Like That last start and it should be a good form race.
Joao Moreira takes the ride and the early money is on his back.
Race 2. (15:00) Ryrie C5 Handicap (1400m)
#11 – Bundle of Energy – Bet Now
Bundle of Energy is coming off a second placing at Sha Tin and we’re expecting another tidy effort from the gelding.
The son of Reliable Man has yet to win from 22 starts but with five placings and Moreira riding, he should go close soon.
Each-way odds should be available with bookmakers.
Race 3. (15:30) The Macwhinnie Cup (1000m)
#2 – Dublin Star – Bet Now
Dublin Star is a last-start winner that could rise through the grades now. The son of Savabeel is coming off a 1.3-length win at Sha Tin and he only needs luck from the draw.
Receiving barrier 14 isn’t ideal over this distance but he is a capable type that could finish best down the outside.
Race 4. (16:00) The Purves Quaich C2 (1600m)
#6 – Lakeshore Eagle – Bet Now
The son of Master of Design is coming off back-to-back victories and he could have the class edge over this field.
His most recent effort was a half-length win at Sha Tin and it was his fifth win from only 11 starts. That is a nice record to have and he could add to it now.
Race 5. (16:30) The Swaine Cup (1400m)
#7 – Casimiro – Bet Now
Paul O’Sullivan lines up the six-year-old that has been in good form this season. He has a win and a recent placing to boast, which should stack up well in this race.
He has plenty of experience to call upon and although there are some good types in this race, he could run well at an each-way quote.
Race 6. (17:00) The Wong Cup (1200m)
#7 – Little Thunder – Bet Now
The son of Hussonet is having his fourth run this preparation and he already owns a win. He won at Sha Tin in May and although well-beaten last start, he finished third.
There isn’t too much depth to this field and with an in-form jockey in the saddle, he could be very tough to hold out.
Race 7. (17:35) The Li Cup (1800m)
#4 – Defining Moment – Bet Now
The in-form gelding could make it four wins from his last five starts after winning at Sha Tin last month. He enjoyed the slight drop back in distance and staying at 1800m is going to give him a chance to win again.
It is another good ride for Joao Moreira and he is worth following at this meeting.
Race 8. (18:05) The Arculli Trophy (1200m)
#8 – Fantasy – Bet Now
Charlie Shum lines up the four-year-old gelding that has three wins and four second placings from only nine starts.
He is a son of Sizzling that looks to have a bright future and could easily rise through the ranks. He is yet to tackle the all-weather surface but it shouldn’t hold any fears.
Race 9. (18:35) The Chan Trophy (1400m)
#3 – Chevalier Prince – Bet Now
The three-year-old owns two placings from as many starts and there is plenty to like about that form.
He finished second at Sha Tin last start and it is good to see Zac Purton remain in the saddle. He should be able to find cover from the draw and go close.
Expect short odds with bookmakers.
Race 10. (19:10) The Stevenson Cup (1200m)
#4 – Utopia Life – Bet Now
Utopia Life is only a two-win gelding but he is rarely far away from the action. He finished sixth last start but was 2.5 lengths from the winner, so it was a good effort.
He scored a three-length win at Sha Tin in April and anything close to that sees him right in the thick of the finish.
Race 11. (19:45) The IP Jug C3 (1200m)
#7 – President’s Choice – Bet Now
President’s Choice has finished in the first two in four of his five starts to date. The son of Redoute’s Choice scored back-to-back wins on this track before running second last start.
He could be headed for stakes company soon and it is good to see Karis Teetan sticking with him.
Expect another big effort.
