Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (16:00) Chung On C5 Handicap (1200m)
#5 – Chungwa Jingshen – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old gelding is getting close to a win after three consecutive second placings. Those placings came at Happy Valley, but the confidence would have done him plenty of good.
He doesn’t meet an overly tough field here and punters get value odds in early betting markets.
Put Chungwa Jingshen on top in the first.
Race 2. (16:30) Hoi Pa C4 Handicap (1000m)
#1 – Amazing Rocky – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old gelding has shown good pace to date after winning by a length at Happy Valley two starts back.
He then finished 1.8 lengths behind the winner before spelling and returning this season, so he should be ready to fire fresh up.
2.5kg comes off his back to help with the weight.
Race 3. (17:00) Sha Tsui C4 Handicap (1400m)
#3 – The Anomaly – Bet @ Sportsbet
There is little wrong with the form of The Anomaly, who scored on debut and has since added two third placings.
The Ting-trained son of Real Impact ran well fresh up this season when finishing third at Sha Tin, so that experience holds him in good stead.
Punters should watch market moves.
Race 4. (17:30) Tai Ho C5 Handicap (1400m)
#12 – One Step Ahead – Bet @ Sportsbet
One Step Ahead has yet to win from 22 starts, but the six-year-old gelding has been getting close.
The son of Tavistock ran 1.4 lengths behind the winner fresh up, and it’s good to see Joao Moreira sticking with him.
Barrier one with only 53kg makes him tough to beat.
Race 5. (18:00) Tak Wah C4 Handicap (1650m)
#9 – Fairy Floss – Bet @ Sportsbet
The six-year-old might have needed the run last start, so we’re prepared to give him another chance.
He is a four-time winner at Sha Tin, including back-to-back wins to close last season, which bodes well.
It’s another good ride for Joao Moreira, so punters should expect a top effort.
Race 6. (18:35) The Yan Chai Trophy C4 Handicap (1400m)
#8 – Solar Power – Bet @ Sportsbet
Solar Power took 13 starts to score his maiden win at Sha Tin, but he could go back-to-back on Sunday.
The son of Kingman scored easily by 2.8 lengths, so the ability is there, and he meets only a moderate Class 4 field.
Punters should get each-way odds on race night.
Race 7. (19:05) Tsuen Fu C3 Handicap (1650m)
#3 – Ultra Express – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ultra Express is running for three consecutive wins after scoring by 1.8 lengths at Sha Tin last season.
The five-year-old gelding by Power doesn’t know how to run a bad race, and having Moreira riding only strengthens his chances of winning.
Most of the early money has come his way.
Race 8. (19:35) Tsuen Lok C2 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Hongkong Great – Bet @ Sportsbet
Charlie Shum lines up the six-year-old comes off a win at Sha Tin by 5.5 lengths, so he could return in similar fashion.
The son of Looking at Lucky has beaten some smart types throughout his career, and although he meets a tough field, he has upside.
Drawing barrier one is a big bonus over this distance.
Race 9. (20:10) Yeung Uk C3 Handicap (1200m)
#3 – High Rise Soldier – Bet @ Sportsbet
High Rise Soldier didn’t do too much wrong when running fifth fresh up at Happy Valley, so include here.
The son of Snitzel owns only one win from 10 starts, but he looks good enough to compete against this level of opposition.
It’s another top ride for Moreira, so include.
Race 10. (20:45) Wo Tik C3 Handicap (1400m)
#5 – Star Performance – Bet @ Sportsbet
Star Performance has had the benefit of two runs this season, including a fresh up win at Sha Tin.
He was only 3.5 lengths behind the winner last start, and the fitness will only do his chances good here.
Barrier four is ideal and we’re expecting a bounce back.
