Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:15) Chevalier Aluminium C4 (1200m)
#3 – Good Shot – Bet Now
David Hall lines up the talented son of Swiss Ace which could make a good impact here.
Seeing Zac Purton take the ride is a good sign and despite drawing barrier 12, he could work into the race late and kick clear at the top of the straight.
Could pay to follow the odds with this runner.
Race 2. (15:45) Chevalier Car Dealership C5 (1400m)
#9 – Victorious Leader – Bet Now
Victorious Leader returned to good form when running second at Sha Tin last start. He was only a long neck behind Blazing Partners and that form bodes well for this.
He wasn’t able to show his best form last season but the break might have worked the trick.
Zac Purton takes the ride and this isn’t an overly hard field to beat.
Race 3. (16:15) Chevalier Construction C4 Handicap (1000m)
#4 – Lucky More – Bet Now
We’re going with another Purton-ridden runner but he’s not a bad jockey to follow.
The Charlie Shum-trained colt has had one run for a second placing at Sha Tin and he’s only going to get better with the run.
He’s a son of More Than Ready which is bred to be better than most here and he should be tough to beat.
Race 4. (16:45) Chevalier Engineering C4 (1600m)
#1 – London Hall – Bet Now
London Hall looked good winning back-to-back races last campaign and wasn’t all that far away fresh up.
The David Hall-trained five-year-old owns two wins from nine starts and both of those came at this track.
Australian rider Blake Shinn is in the saddle and he should be able to produce a good ride and go close.
Race 5. (17:15) Chevalier Environment C3 (1200m)
#3 – Champ Patrol – Bet Now
Richard Gibson lines up the four-year-old by Tavistock which comes into this race with consecutive wins.
He comes over from New Zealand having won at Te Rapa over some nice types and that form should stack up nicely in Hong Kong.
Betting will be a good guide but expect plenty of bets to be placed.
Race 6. (17:50) Chevalier Healthcare C4 (1400m)
#5 – Destin – Bet Now
Destin might be a six-year-old but he still has good pace in his legs. He’s coming off consecutive second placings and a win to open this season.
The son of Duporth has finished in the money in 15 of his 31 starts and the majority of those have some at Sha Tin.
Drawn a touch wide but having Purton in the saddle helps.
Race 7. (16:20) The Chevalier Cup (1600m)
#12 – Green Luck – Bet Now
Caspar Fownes lines up the five-year-old which owns a good record of five wins and five placings from 17 starts.
He’s a well-bred son of Street Cry which ran only 2.5 lengths behind the winner last start and Matthew Poon takes some weight off his back.
Every chance of causing a minor upset in this.
Race 8. (16:50) Chevalier Lifts C3 (1200m)
#9 – Aquila – Bet Now
Aquila hit the line nicely when running second at Sha Tin last start and that form should stack up nicely for this.
He has shown good form throughout his five-start career and he still has plenty of maturing to do.
Bred to show some speed and the rise in weight won’t hurt his chances.
Race 9. (17:25) Chevalier Property Development C3 (1600m)
#1 – Band of Brothers – Bet Now
Owns four wins from seven starts and it’s tough to disagree with that form.
He finished three lengths behind the winner last start but put that down to second-up syndrome. He’ll be a much better chance in this.
Needs to navigate the wide barrier draw but with some luck, he’ll be fighting out the finish once again.
Race 10. (18:00) Chevalier Property Investment C2 (1400m)
#1 – Golden Sixty – Bet Now
The winner of five of his six starts and although his only defeat was a shocker, he rebounded with consecutive victories.
He has been beating good fields along the way and staying at 1400m looks ideal, after winning over this distance last start.
Far too good to overlook.
