Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (14:45) Tsz Wan Shan C5 Handicap (1800m)
#5 – Amazing Agility – Bet @ Sportsbet
Amazing Agility is a professional five-time winner that comes off back-to-back placings and he’s ready to win again.
The nine-year-old hasn’t won this year, but he has gone close on multiple occasions. That form bodes well and Karis Teetan sticks with him.
Punters should get each-way odds on race day.
Race 2. (15:15) Tate’s Cairn C4 Handicap (1400m)
#11 – Sam’s Love – Bet @ Sportsbet
The seven-year-old is only a two-time winner from 42 starts, but he hasn’t been too far away this season.
He ran second on this track in January and his subsequent runs have been solid. It’s good enough form for this race and having Zac Purton in the saddle is a bonus.
53.5kg on his back is ideal, so consider.
Race 3. (15:45) The Lion Rock Trophy (1600m)
#1 – Ka Ying Star – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ka Ying Star was too good for them two back and take nothing away from his effort behind Golden Sixty in the Champions Mile.
This is an easier contest and although the field is still packed with nice types, he looks the hardest to beat with Purton in the saddle.
Expect a nice effort from barrier two.
Race 4. (16:15) Tate’s Cairn C4 Handicap (1400m)
#3 – Seasons Bliss – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to improve on a second placing is Seasons Bliss, which was under a length from the winner at Sha Tin.
The three-year-old son of Charm Spirit was the short-priced favorite to win, and although beaten, he should be tough to beat here.
Punters should expect short odds.
Race 5. (17:05) Sha Tin Heights C4 Handicap (1200m)
#12 – Smart Wongchoy – Bet @ Sportsbet
Smart Wongchoy is a consistent type that owns five placings from 13 starts, so he’s good enough to break through.
The four-year-old son of Smart Missile comes off consecutive placings and those came behind some smart types, including Jade Phoenix.
Expect another tidy effort at the weights.
Race 6. (17:40) Piper’s Hill C3 Handicap (2000m)
#6 – So We Joy – Bet @ Sportsbet
So We Joy owns two wins from his last four starts and that form is tough to overlook. He won by 4.3 lengths two back and he’s good enough to handle this field.
His most recent run was a solid effort for fifth and getting Purton in the saddle is only going to boost his chances.
Punters should expect each-way odds.
Race 7. (18:10) Eagle’s Nest C3 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Royal Pride – Bet @ Sportsbet
Royal Pride is a former Australian that owns two wins and two placings. He scored a win at Caulfield in October before running third behind Crosshaven.
It’s a good form guide for this level of racing and he gets the inside barrier to his advantage, which should see him land on the speed.
Each-way odds are available so consider.
Race 8. (18:40) Hung Mui Kuk C3 Handicap (1400m)
#4 – Lucky Fun – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lucky Fun owns three wins from seven starts, including a last-start win at Sha Tin over a quality field.
The son of Proisir has been an excellent bet for punters so far and he’s good enough to handle this level of racing.
It’s another good ride for Purton and he could make it count.
Race 9. (19:15) Eagle’s Nest C3 Handicap (1200m)
#9 – Eligere – Bet @ Sportsbet
Eligere comes off a 1.8-length win at Sha Tin and he’s capable of going back-to-back on the track.
The five-year-old took a long time to get back in a winning mode, but the confidence should do him plenty of good.
The light weight helps and he should give punters a good sight.
Race 10. (19:50) Amah Rock C2 Handicap (1200m)
#5 – The Crown – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old is a former New Zealand runner that comes off a second placing in March. It was a tidy effort, but he is getting no respect with bookmakers.
He won both starts in New Zealand by seven and nine lengths, so the talent is there. We wouldn’t be ruling him out and the odds are generous.
