Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (14:30) The Argonaut Griffin Plate (1000m)
#1 – Turbo Power – Bet @ Sportsbet
Turbo Power got the job done on debut at Sha Tin and he could remain unbeaten following this run.
The three-year-old colt won by a length and we’re expecting that form to hold up strongly at this level.
Punters should get a good price on race day.
Race 2. (15:00) Isle of Man C4 Handicap (1000m)
#3 – Seven Heavens – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Caspar Fownes-trained seven-year-old gets the services of Joao Moreira, which will help.
He is only a three-time winner from 49 starts but the son of Frankel still has plenty to offer each-way punters.
Barrier 12 makes it tough but expect them to go hard early.
Race 3. (15:30) Special Cargo C5 Handicap (2000m)
#5 – Amazing Agility – Bet @ Sportsbet
Punters should stick with Amazing Agility after he finished third at Happy Valley last time out.
The nine-year-old gelding is well past his best, but this isn’t a strong Class 5 race and he has the class edge over the field.
Karis Teetan rides and jumping from barrier three should see him tough to hold out.
Race 4. (16:00) Manicou C4 Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Jade Phoenix – Bet @ Sportsbet
Jade Phoenix looks set to break through after 12 starts. He has rattled off three consecutive placings and he has been running against strong fields.
The Frankie Lor-trained four-year-old should rise through the grades, but he just needs to get his maiden win out of the way.
Expect short odds from bookmakers.
Race 5. (16:30) Norman Conqueror C4 Handicap (1600m)
#3 – Ultra Express – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Tony Millard-trained gelding owns a win and three placings from seven starts, which is a good record to date.
He comes off a second placing at Sha Tin behind Shanghai Dragon and it followed a win and placing on this track.
Joao Moreira rides off the inside draw and he should be right in the mix.
Race 6. (17:00) Monaveen C4 Handicap (1400m)
#7 – Green Envy – Bet @ Sportsbet
Punters should get each-way odds for Green Envy, which owns only one win but he has been close numerous times.
The five-year-old finished second by a half-length at Sha Tin last start and it came behind Everyone’s Delight, which is tidy form.
Moreira adds to his quality book of rides.
Race 7. (17:35) The Queen Mother Memorial Cup (2400m)
#2 – Russian Emperor – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Douglas Whyte-trained four-year-old hasn’t done too much wrong since arriving in Hong Kong, including back-to-back placings.
The former European is a Group 3 winner at Ascot and he has Group 1 experience, which counts for plenty in this race.
Karis Teetan rides and he should be tough to hold out.
Race 8. (18:05) Game Spirit C3 Handicap (1200m)
#4 – Hurry Hurry Gain – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Lor-trained three-year-old comes off consecutive wins and it’s tough to look past that form.
He is a son of Press Statement that scored by 1.8 lengths two back and followed it up with a half-length win at Sha Tin.
He could have a bright future and this is the next stepping stone.
Race 9. (18:35) Insular C3 Handicap (1800m)
#3 – Looking Great – Bet @ Sportsbet
Frankie Lor and Joao Moreira combine with Looking Great, which lived up to his name at Sha Tin last start.
The four-year-old gelding is a three-time winner from 11 starts and he also has five placings to his name.
Barrier 10 hurts but we wouldn’t be overlooking his chances.
Race 10. (19:10) Game Spirit C3 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Trillion Win – Bet @ Sportsbet
He is a three-time winner from 10 starts and he could add a fourth on Sunday. The four-year-old comes off a second placing at Sha Tin and he does his best racing here.
Manfred Man lines up the son of Proisir and he has already won at Sha Tin this prep, so another win wouldn’t surprise.
Punters should come for the favourite.
Race 11. (19:45) Inch Arran C3 Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Fantastic Treasure – Bet @ Sportsbet
Fantastic Treasure is unbeaten after three starts and we expect him to be competitive in this grade.
The son of Written Tycoon scored by four lengths two starts back before winning narrowly last time out.
It was a good outing and it should strengthen him up for Sunday’s race.
