Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (14:30) Tourmaline C5 Handicap (1000m)
#12 – Whistle Up – Bet Now
The Ho-trained six-year-old is coming off a tidy performance for fourth at Sha Tin and we’re expecting that form to stack up nicely.
He has yet to win from 27 starts, so punters are getting impatient, but he owns six placings and it’s only a matter of time.
Each-way odds are on offer.
Race 2. (15:00) Garnet C4 Handicap (1200m)
#3 – Winning Brew – Bet Now
Winning Brew didn’t lose any admirers when running second on debut at Sha Tin. He did finish 3.8 lengths behind the winner but it was a nice debut.
Zac Purton takes over the riding duties now and despite drawing barrier 14, we’re expecting a tidy effort.
Race 3. (15:30) The Premier Cup (1400m)
#1 – Thanks Forever – Bet Now
Thanks Forever is coming off a win at Group 3 level and that form stacks up well for this race. The son of Duporth was able to beat Hot King Prawn and this field looks easier.
Prior to that he finished third behind Mr Stunning at the highest level and we are expecting big things from the likely favourite.
Race 4. (16:00) Garnet C4 Handicap (1200m)
#8 – Happy Victory – Bet Now
The Tony Millard-trained gelding ran well for third last start and he should be able to build on that effort.
He finished only 1.9 lengths behind the winner and despite having not win for a long time, that could all change on Sunday.
Look for each-way odds.
Race 5. (16:30) Garnet C4 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Yee Cheong Pegasus – Bet Now
Yee Cheong Pegasus got the job done last start and there’s no reason why he couldn’t win again.
The Millard-trained son of Lonhro has finished in the first two home in eight of his 18 starts, so the consistency is there.
He draws well and that should result in another good effort.
Race 6. (17:00) Opal C4 Handicap (2000m)
#12 – Victorious Seeker – Bet Now
Paul O’Sullivan lines up the four-year-old that is coming off a win at Happy Valley. He won by two lengths in a dominant display and that form bodes well for this.
It capped off some consistent form which resulted in five consecutive placings, so he has the class to win in this grade.
55kg on the back helps and he should go close again.
Race 7. (17:35) Lapis Lazuli C4 Handicap (1600m)
#13 – Wonder Express – Bet Now
Value is with Wonder Express, which scored a win on this track two back and followed that up with a third placing.
He isn’t the most consistent runner but his confidence has built up recently and he could continue with his fine form.
Drawing barrier two with a light weight is ideal.
Race 8. (18:05) The Premier Plate (1800m)
#2 – Furore – Bet Now
Furore will appreciate the drop back in class after competing at Group 1 grade in five of his last six starts.
The former Australian finished third behind Exultant last time out and this field is a considerable drop in class.
He should take advantage and punters might get a value price.
Race 9. (18:35) Alexandrite C3 Handicap (1400m)
#3 – Fantastic Show – Bet Now
Fantastic Show won four consecutive races before running third at Sha Tin last start. His winning streak was a great sign of consistency and he wasn’t beaten far last time out.
Joao Moreira sticks with the son of Not a Single Doubt and we’re confident he can produce another fine effort.
Punters should be expecting short odds.
Race 10. (19:10) Alexandrite C3 Handicap (1400m)
#4 – The Rock – Bet Now
The Rock could improve on his Hong Kong debut where he finished third. He is a European import that showed good form overseas and ran better than expected at Sha Tin.
He is expected to improve with racing and as he gets over longer distances, so staying at 1400m isn’t the worst thing.
Nice odds on offer for a nice type.
Race 11. (19:45) Aquamarine C3 Handicap (1200m)
#5 – Good Luck Friend – Bet Now
Good Luck Friend has made an impressive start to his career with two wins and a placing from four starts.
The three-year-old won at Sha Tin by 2.3 lengths last start and that is form that should be respected in this class.
Look for Moreira to give him a sweet ride throughout.
