Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:00) Tung Wan Shan C5 Handicap (1650m)
#9 – Aerosonic – Bet @ Sportsbet
Aerosonic doesn’t have much form to write home about, but having Joao Moreira in the saddle is a bonus.
The John Size-trained four-year-old was 13.8 lengths behind the winner last start, but it’s not often Moreira rides and finishes down the track.
Look for a betting push on race day.
Race 2. (15:30) Sai Wan C4 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Blaze Warrior – Bet @ Sportsbet
Blaze Warrior scored by 1.3 lengths on debut and it won’t be his last win. The son of Sebring was too classy for the opposition and Moreira sticks like glue.
The three-year-old looks like a type that could rise through the grades and he only needs luck from barrier eight to go close.
Punters should expect a solid betting move.
Race 3. (16:00) Shouson Hill C5 Handicap (1400m)
#5 – Speedy Dragon – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Manfred Man-trained six-year-old comes off a second-place finish at Sha Tin and that form stacks up well.
He is only a two-time winner from 30 starts, but he is experienced at Sha Tin and that’s a positive for this race.
It’s not a strong field and he could take advantage.
Race 4. (16:30) Sheung Yeung Shan C4 Handicap (1650m)
#13 – Dragon Commander – Bet @ Sportsbet
The six-year-old only owns one win from 31 starts, but his recent form has been good and that’s what matters most.
He scored his win four back at Sha Tin before running three consecutive second placings. There is plenty to like about that form and carrying only 51.5kg helps.
Karis Teetan rides and that is a bonus.
Race 5. (17:00) Needle Hill C3 Handicap (2000m)
#2 – Vincy – Bet @ Sportsbet
Vincy is a four-time winner from 36 starts that scored an overdue win at Happy Valley three starts back.
He didn’t follow it up with much at Sha Tin two back, but his effort for third last time out behind Enzemble was solid enough.
Punters should get value odds and he could make his presence known.
Race 6. (17:35) Shek Nga Shan C4 Handicap (1400m)
#2 – Victory Scholars – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old gelding owns three placings from four starts and although yet to win, he won’t take long to get off the mark.
He is a son of Per Incanto that hasn’t been far off the pace and with the help of Zac Purton in the saddle, he should be right around the mark again.
Expec money to come for him.
Race 7. (18:05) Nam Long Shan C3 Handicap (1650m)
#8 – Gold Comet – Bet @ Sportsbet
Gold Comet comes off a nine-length win at Sha Tin and we’re not going to overlook that effort.
The four-year-old took six starts to break through, but he did so in style. It was an emphatic performance and he could go on with it.
Joao Moreira sticks with him and that’s hardly surprising.
Race 8. (18:35) Mount Nicholson C3 Handicap (1400m)
#10 – Leap of Faith – Bet @ Sportsbet
Leap of Faith comes off back-to-back second placings and he’s easily good enough to handle this field.
The four-year-old son of Sebring owns two wins and five placings from 15 starts, so he’s always around the mark and carrying 55kg is ideal.
It’s another good ride for Moreira and he can make the difference.
Race 9. (19:10) Mount Cameron C3 Handicap (1200m)
#5 – Storm Warnings – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old is capable of handling this field and he has been going close after consecutive placings.
He is a son of Zoustar that was only 1.8 lengths behind the winner last start and with Jerry Chau taking 2.5kg off his back, he is well-weighted.
Each-way odds will be available on race day.
Race 10. (19:45) Lai Pek Shan C2 Handicap (1200m)
#3 – Naboo Attack – Bet @ Sportsbet
Naboo Attack is a former Australian that owns six wins from eight starts, including a last-start win at Sha Tin.
He won by 1.3 lengths, which carried on from his form in Brisbane. He got the better of some quality Australian types, including Vanna Girl, Maozi and Gee Tee Tee.
It’s good form for Hong Kong and he should go well again.
