Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:45) Shan Kwong Road Park C4 Handicap (2000m)
#12 – Sky Gem – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sky Gem is a talented five-year-old that looks ready to win. The Caspar Fownes-trained gelding has placed in three of his four starts this season, which is good form.
Carrying 51.5kg is ideal and most of the early money has come for the favourite.
Race 2. (16:15) Morse Park C4 Handicap (1200m)
#3 – Golden Link – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Yiu-trained four-year-old has two placings from six starts and he looked good when running fourth at Sha Tin.
He is a son of Per Incanto that will need luck from barrier 13, but Matthew Chadwick rides and that is ideal.
Look for each-way odds on race day.
Race 3. (16:45) The Jockey Club Mile (1600m)
#2 – Golden Sixty – Bet @ Sportsbet
Golden Sixty is a champion thoroughbred that owns 12 wins from 13 starts. He is a talented type that has beaten the likes of Beauty Generation and Ka Ying Star.
Drawing the inside barrier is ideal for this race and with the weight of only 56kg, he shouldn’t be getting beaten.
Expect short odds from bookmakers.
Race 4. (17:15) Kowloon Tsai Park C4 Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Hall of Champ – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hall of Champ is a capable four-year-old that is coming off consecutive placings. He finished second at Sha Tin last start and there was plenty to like about that effort.
Jerry Chau takes 3kg off his back and he has drawn to get a sweet run from barrier three. Expect Hall of Champ to lob into a good spot and kick strongly.
Race 5. (18:05) The Jockey Club Sprint (1200m)
#1 – Hot King Prawn – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hot King Prawn needs to start finding his best form, but we’re not giving up on the champion sprinter.
His recent form has been only fair, but he is a 10-time winner from 20 starts and nine of those wins have come at Sha Tin.
Joao Moreira is a key booking and that should give punters confidence.
Race 6. (18:40) Victoria Park C2 Handicap (1800m)
#11 – Winning Delight – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old son of Sebring is a three-time winner that could add to his record on Sunday.
He gets in beautifully on the weights at 52kg and with Joao Moreira in the saddle, that is a big bonus for punters.
He only needs some luck from barrier 12 to go close.
Race 7. (19:10) The Jockey Club Cup (2000m)
#1 – Exultant – Bet @ Sportsbet
Exultant is all class and although beaten by Furore last start, he is only going to improve with racing under his belt.
The Tony Cruz-trained champion is a 13-time winner and rising in distance to 2000m is another positive.
Zac Purton rides and we are confident the son of Teofilo will get back to his best form.
Race 8. (19:40) Hong Kong Park C3 Handicap (1200m)
#7 – Ka Ying Master – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ka Ying Master comes into this race with back-to-back wins and although facing a harder field now, he has upside.
The five-year-old son of Snitzel owns four wins on this track and with his recent wins coming at Sha Tin, that bodes well.
Punters are getting each-way odds and they’re worth taking.
Race 9. (20:15) Kowloon Park C3 Handicap (1400m)
#7 – The Hulk – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Hulk hasn’t smashed them this season but he’s capable and having Moreira in the saddle is ideal.
He is coming off consecutive placings on this track and there has been plenty of money come his way throughout the week.
Drawing barrier two is ideal and punters get good odds.
Race 10. (20:50) Penfold Park C2 Handicap (1200m)
#4 – California Rad – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Cruz-trained runner owns five wins from 15 starts and he has every chance to add to that record on Sunday.
He scored a narrow win on this track last start, which showed he’s not only a Happy Valley course specialist.
Punters get odds worth taking in the last race.
