Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (16:00) Fay Fay Handicap (1200m)
#4 – Evan Almighty – Bet Now
Evan Almighty has the services of Joao Moreira, and that’s going to help his cause. His first start was a fourth at Sha Tin last month, which was a solid effort.
The son of Kuroshio is only going to get better with time and we’re expecting plenty of money to come his way on race night.
Race 2. (16:30) Helene Mascot C4 Handicap (1600m)
#7 – Full Power – Bet Now
Full Power owns only one placing from seven starts, but it’s overdue a winning performance. The Richard Gibson-trained gelding is better than advertised.
He ran third at Happy Valley three back and it doesn’t usually take the progeny of Frankel too long to break maiden grades.
He’ll run at each-way odds, so consider.
Race 3. (17:00) Super Satin C4 Handicap (1200m)
#10 – Yee Cheong Pegasus – Bet Now
Tony Millard lines up the five-year-old that owns a win and three second placings. His recent form has been solid, with the win coming last time out at Sha Tin.
It came by two lengths in a one-sided display, and having Chad Schofield in the saddle is ideal. He carries only 55.5kg on his back, making us confident in a good run.
Race 4. (17:30) Ping Hai Star C4 Handicap (1400m)
#5 – Hinyuen Swiftness – Bet Now
The Yip-trained seven-year-old has the experience needed to win this race, with 42 starts. From those 42 starts, he has five wins and 10 placings.
In two starts this campaign he has placed in both, which bodes well for another good run. It’s a wide-open field and punters should get good odds.
Race 5. (18:00) Designs on Rome C3 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Stanley Park – Bet Now
Form is with Stanley Park, which comes from Australia with five wins under his belt. The five-year-old won at Sunshine Coast in 2018, and although it’s been over a year since its last run, it could fire up.
The son of Duke of Marmalade should be paying juicy odds with bookmakers, and stranger things have happened on the track.
Watch for any late betting moves.
Race 6. (18:35) Akeed Mofeed C3 Handicap (2000m)
#13 – London Hall – Bet Now
London Hall enters this race having scored well at Sha Tin last time out. The five-year-old is a three-time winner that has great ability at times.
Drawing barrier one and having only 51.5kg on his back bodes well. He should be able to find a good spot in running and Matthew Chadwick takes the ride.
He’s another runner that should be well-backed on race night.
Race 7. (19:05) Luger C3 Handicap (1200m)
#5 – Wellington – Bet Now
Wellington is unbeaten after two starts, and his win on debut came by three lengths. He followed that up with a narrow win last start and he can handle the rise in class.
He scored that win at odds of $1.60 and although he’ll likely be well-backed to win again, his odds should be slightly longer.
Race 8. (19:35) The BMW Hong Kong Derby (2000m)
#1 – Golden Sixty – Bet Now
Golden Sixty has won nine of his 10 starts and that form is very tough to get past.
The Lui-trained four-year-old has missed a win in only one race to date, but since that loss, he has been one of the best horses in Hong Kong.
He defeated a good field by a half-length last time out, so look for that to be a good form guide. Expect bookmakers to have him short in the market.
Race 9. (20:15) Collection C3 Handicap (1400m)
#3 – La Yakfi – Bet Now
Charlie Shum lines up the son of Makfi, which comes to Hong Kong with good form. The four-year-old won by two lengths at Longchamp and he’s capable of winning this race.
He’s a bit of an unknown quantity, so the betting markets will give punters a good guide. However, he looks to have a good amount of ability.
Race 10. (20:50) Rapper Dragon C2 Handicap (1400m)
#10 – Seattle Choice – Bet Now
Seattle Choice was too good for them at Sha Tin last start. He won by 3.5 lengths in a dominant display, and he could repeat the effort.
The son of Sail From Seattle came from South Africa last year and has performed well since. He could kick on with it now that he has broken through.
Punters should expect each-way odds.
