Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:45) Bochk Cross-Border C4 Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Trust Me – Bet @ Sportsbet
Trust Me is a four-time winner at Sha Tin and he could get back to his best after two fair efforts this season.
The son of Guillotine has usually been consistent throughout his career, so with the fitness levels up, he could spark into action.
Race 2. (16:15) Bochk Sme in One C4 Handicap (1400m)
#9 – Peak to Peak – Bet @ Sportsbet
Peak to Peak scored an overdue win at Sha Tin last start and he could start stringing wins together.
The four-year-old son of More than Ready scored by a nose and it was a big turnaround in form. He shouldn’t find this too much harder and carrying 55.5kg helps.
Race 3. (16:45) Boc Life C2 Handicap (1000m)
#4 – Master Eight – Bet @ Sportsbet
Master Eight is unbeaten after three starts and we think his record will remain perfect on Sunday.
The Lor-trained four-year-old paid $1.30 when scoring last time out by 1.8 lengths, and although he’ll find this harder, he’s the testing material.
Punters should expect short odds off the inside draw with Joao Moreira riding.
Race 4. (17:15) Bochk Asset Management C3 Handicap (1400m)
#9 – Dragon Fortune – Bet @ Sportsbet
Dragon Fortune didn’t fire last start when eighth at Sha Tin, but his fresh up performance is a much better form guide.
The four-year-old scored by 1.8 lengths over a tidy field, so if he brings that form to the stable, he should be too good for them.
Barrier three and a light weight is ideal.
Race 5. (18:05) Bochk Wealth Management C3 Handicap (2000m)
#7 – Above – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Tony Millard-trained son of Tavistock comes off a much-improved second placing at Happy Valley and its confidence levels should be up.
He is a four-time winner at Sha Tin and he should get every chance in the run after drawing barrier four.
Punters should expect each-way odds.
Race 6. (18:35) Bochk Private Bank Sprint (1200m)
#9 – Courier Wonder – Bet @ Sportsbet
The speedy four-year-old finished fifth behind Lucky Patch last start, which was his first defeat in six career attempts.
He looked like a potential Group 1 winner during his first campaign and we think he can hit the ground running this time in.
Moreira rides and each-way odds are available.
Race 7. (19:05) Bochk Private Wealth Mile (1600m)
#1 – Golden Sixty – Bet @ Sportsbet
Golden Sixty owns 17 wins from 18 starts and we expect the champion six-year-old to win again.
He is the most impressive runner in Hong Kong and the son of Medaglia D’oro should open his account with another victory.
It’s a tough field but he’s more than up to it.
Race 8. (19:40) The Bochk Jockey Club Cup (2000m)
#1 – Panfield – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking for three consecutive wins is Panfield, who opened his account with a narrow win in the Sha Tin Trophy.
He rises in weight for this contest, which makes it harder, but punters should be confident with the Millard-trained runner.
Most of the early money has come his way.
Race 9. (20:15) Boc Credit Card C2 Handicap (1800m)
#3 – C P Brave – Bet @ Sportsbet
C P Brave has been well-backed to win after posting three wins and four placings from nine career starts.
The four-year-old son of Zoffany scored nicely fresh up, and although only fourth last start, he was just 1.5 lengths behind the winner.
It’s another good ride for Moreira.
Race 10. (20:50) Bochk Boc Pay C3 Handicap (1200m)
#6 – California Spangle – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Tony Cruz-trained three-year-old started his career with consecutive wins before finishing second by a nose at Sha Tin.
He is a smart type in the making, and he will need luck from barrier 13, but he has the pace to overcome the draw.
Expect a good run from the favourite.
