Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:00) Pak Tin C4 Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Dublin Star – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Manfred Man-trained four-year-old is a one-time winner from 10 starts that has needed both runs back from a spell.
He finished only 2.5 lengths behind the winner last start and his best form would take him close.
Look for each-way odds with bookmakers.
Race 2. (15:30) So Uk C4 Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Beluga – Bet @ Sportsbet
Beluga has yet to run a bad race after three attempts, which includes a win and two placings.
The David Hall-trained four-year-old scored his win at Sha Tin in March and he looked good when resuming for third.
Expect a better run now with that fitness edge.
Race 3. (16:00) Pak Tin C4 Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Mighty Valor – Bet @ Sportsbet
Mighty Valor was a winner fresh up last season and he could kick-start the new season in style.
The four-year-old son of Snitzel scored by 4.5 lengths in June and he followed that up with two solid efforts.
It won’t take him long to win this preparation and Sunday could be his day.
Race 4. (16:30) Un Chau C5 Handicap (1600m)
#5 – Shinealot – Bet @ Sportsbet
Paul O’Sullivan lines up the gelding that has yet to win from 18 starts, but he faces only a moderate field on Sunday.
The son of Siyouni finished fourth last start at Sha Tin and he typically goes best with a run or two under his belt.
He could get off the mark with a win at each-way odds.
Race 5. (17:00) So Uk C4 Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Golden Four – Bet @ Sportsbet
Golden Four is coming off three consecutive placings and punters could get value odds for this race.
The six-year-old son of Denman is a two-time winner that is rarely too far behind them. He should get a nice drag into the race and Jerry Chau takes 4.5kg off his back.
Race 6. (17:35) Tai Hang Tung C4 Handicap (1800m)
#3 – Natural Storm – Bet @ Sportsbet
Natural Storm is coming off a third placing at Sha Tin and the four-year-old gelding could improve on that run.
The son of Pins was only 1.5 lengths behind some nice types on that occasion and it won’t take him long to score his second career win.
Punters could get value odds against this level of opposition.
Race 7. (18:05) Lai Kok C3 Handicap (1200m)
#8 – All For South – Bet @ Sportsbet
All For South is a former Australian that won his last three starts at provincial circuits. The son of Toronado wasn’t racing against top-level opposition, but winning form is good form.
He hasn’t raced since December, so he might need the run, but with only 56kg on his back, he could be worth following.
Race 8. (18:35) Lai Kok C3 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Healthy Happy – Bet @ Sportsbet
Healthy Happy showed his ability last season when scoring a win at Randwick. The former Australian defeated the talented Bandersnatch, so that form is good for this race.
He also finished second behind Funstar, which has gone on to compete at the highest level in Australia.
His form lines read well for this contest, so put him on top.
Race 9. (19:10) Nam Sham C3 Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Star of Yuen Long – Bet @ Sportsbet
Manfred Man lines up the five-year-old gelding that owns three wins and five placings from 18 starts.
He is amounting a good race record and his run for second at Sha Tin fresh up was impressive. Look for him to build on that and produce another tidy effort.
Drawing barrier 11 hurts but Zac Purton takes the ride.
Race 10. (19:45) Chak On C2 Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Band of Brothers – Bet @ Sportsbet
Band of Brothers is a professional winner of six from 15 starts and punters are likely to come for him on race night.
The O’Sullivan-trained gelding is coming off a narrow third placing last start and he will derive plenty of fitness from the run.
He is a quality type that is worth sticking with.
Race 10. (19:50) Chek Lap Kok C2 Handicap (1800m)
#1 – Helene Leadingstar – Bet @ Sportsbet
Helene Leadingstar has looked good throughout his career and he could add to his six-win record.
The Cruz-trained runner is fresh up after running fifth at Sha Tin in July and despite drawing wide, he gets a good rider in the saddle.
It could pay to follow betting moves on the day.
