Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:15) Lei Muk Shue C4 Handicap (1000m)
#2 – Zero Hedge – Bet Now
The John Size-trained gelding is a four-time winner that has been knocking on the door of late. He finished second behind El Jefe two starts back before running only 1.3 lengths behind the winner last time out.
It won’t take him long to get back in the winners’ enclosure and punters are getting each-way odds.
Race 2. (15:45) Tai Wo Hau C5 Handicap (1600m)
#7 – Liverbird Star – Bet Now
Liverbird Star is fresh up after winning at Sha Tin in December and he could return in fine order. The Paul O’Sullivan-trained gelding has only one win to his name, but he has been around some nice types throughout his career.
Drawing barrier 11 could make it awkward, but Neil Callan takes the ride and he’s riding in good form this season.
Race 3. (16:15) Shek Wai Kok C4 Handicap (1400m)
#11 – Bright Kid – Bet Now
Looking to bounce back after a poor run last start, Bright Kid has the potential to beat a field of this nature. The five-year-old is taken his time to win his third race, but he won’t get a better chance than this.
The son of Show a Heart has yet to show his best form at Sha Tin but there has been good early money placed and that’s a positive sign.
Race 4. (16:45) Shek Lei C4 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Xponential – Bet Now
Douglas Whyte lines up the four-year-old that has mixed form, but has shown glimpses of quality. The son of Equiano won at long odds on debut at Sha Tin, before running 12th at Sha Tin.
He performed much better last time out when fifth and if he can repeat that effort, he might prove too good for them. Punters should be getting each-way odds.
Race 5. (17:15) Shek Yam C4 Handicap (1600m)
#1 – Sonic Fighter – Bet Now
Sonic Fighter is a three-time winner that scored one of those wins two starts back on this track. He won by a narrow margin before running sixth at Happy Valley last start.
His form throughout his career has been good and it could give Paul O’Sullivan another training success on the night. Consider as a win option, and the odds appeal.
Race 6. (17:50) Kwai Fong C3 Handicap (1000m)
#4 – Harmony and Rich – Bet Now
Harmony and Rich is knocking on the door after posting three consecutive third placings. The three-year-old owns two wins from seven starts, with his latest win coming at Rosehill in Australia.
He’s overdue a winning turn in Hong Kong and now that he has settled into life there, he should be able to produce a winning effort.
Race 7. (18:20) Lai King C3 Handicap (1400m)
#2 – Circuit Three – Bet Now
Tony Cruz lines up the talented five-year-old that has won three of his 11 starts. The son of Savabeel also has four placings to his name, but his recent form has been winning form.
He’s coming off an impressive 3.5-length win at Sha Tin and we’re expecting him to kick on with it. His odds won’t be big but they’re worth taking.
Race 8. (18:50) Kwai Shing C3 Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Inner Flame – Bet Now
Looking to remain unbeaten after four runs is Inner Flame, which has looked impressive so far throughout his career. The Whyte-trained son of Zoustar scored narrowly as the $1.50 favourite last start.
He has been rising through the graded nicely and although this is harder, he looks capable of handling the pressure.
Race 9. (19:25) Lai King C3 Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Farhh Above – Bet Now
Douglas Whyte lines up another top chance in Farhh Above. The four-year-old was a winner two starts back, which made it two wins in a row.
His run for fourth last start was fair as the $1.70 favourite and he could bounce back with authority. He won’t need to improve overly much to feature in the finish.
Race 10. (20:00) Cheung Shan C2 Handicap (1400m)
#8 – Super Star – Bet Now
Super Star could be a superstar after winning five of his first 10 races. His record also includes four minor placings, so he’s a gun runner and only the wide draw would stop him here.
Karis Teetan takes the ride and we’re expecting yet another top effort from this promising son of Snitzel.
