Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (16:00) Chung On C5 Handicap (1600m)
#3 – Savvy Seven – Bet Now
Savvy Seven has had two runs this campaign for a sixth and a last-start third. The third came at Sha Tin where he finished behind Smart Patch.
That looks to be a good form guide for this run and he’s going to enjoy the 4.5kg apprentice claim coming off his back.
Has been well-backed in early markets.
Race 2. (16:30) Hoi Pa C4 Handicap (1000m)
#6 – Victory Power – Bet Now
Douglas Whyte lines up the smart type which finished second at Sha Tin last start and could go one better here.
He has been around the mark throughout his career and securing the inside draw will make him tough to beat.
Zac Purton has been booked to ride and that’s a big positive. It’s also a reason why his odds have been trimmed throughout the week.
Race 3. (17:00) Sha Tsui C3 (1200m)
#2 – Silver Fig – Bet Now
Tony Millard lines up Silver Fig, which made an impact when winning by three lengths on this track last start.
That was a nice fresh-up run and it bodes well for this rest of this season. He has shown form good enough to win consistently throughout his career and the penny might have dropped now.
Drawn wide but there has been a strong betting push.
Race 4. (17:30) Tak Wah C4 Handicap (1400m)
#12 – Vital Spring – Bet Now
Vital Spring continued his improvement when scoring nicely at Sha Tin last start and that form looks good for this.
The Lui-trained runner finished second to end his previous season and it’s good to see him get firing early on this campaign.
He’s a New Zealand-bred runner which secured a good draw and with only 54kg on the back, he should prove tough to beat again.
Race 5. (18:00) The Yan Chai C4 Trophy (1400m)
#13 – Above – Bet Now
John Moore lines up Above, which ended his last campaign with a win at Sha Tin.
That came by 2.5 lengths over 1800m and although this is short of his best, he has the ability to sprint in a fresh state.
Karis Teetan takes the ride and his confidence is sky high.
Race 6. (18:35) Tai Ho C4 Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Gunnar – Bet Now
Gunnar is a consistent runner for Caspar Fownes which was slightly disappointing last start, but we’re prepared to forgive that run.
He was much better when second fresh up and he might have suffered from second-up syndrome.
Fitness is up now and he should run an improved race.
Race 7. (19:05) Tsuen Fu C2 Handicap (1800m)
#3 – Harmony Victory – Bet Now
The Shum-trained runner rarely runs a bad race and he comes into this with a win and two placings from his last four starts.
He looked good running fourth fresh up and he was always going to need the fitness under his belt.
Having Zac Purton in the saddle is going to help his chances and he’ll get every chance from barrier four.
Top chance in a tough field.
Race 8. (19:35) Tsuen Lok C3 Handicap (1600m)
#11 – Beauty Day – Bet Now
Beauty Day is getting close to a win after posting three placings from his last four starts.
The Yung-trained runner finished only 1.3 lengths behind the winner at Sha Tin last start and the form should stack up nicely.
There isn’t much covering this field top to bottom, but having Joao Moreira in the saddle could swing the race to Beauty Day.
Race 9. (20:10) Wo Tik C2 Handicap (1000m)
#7 – Aethero – Bet Now
Quality resides with Aethero, which scored wins at his first three starts before running third last start.
The slick customer for John Moore ran on nicely in defeat last start so there was plenty of credit to take from that run.
He looked well above average before that and punters won’t be getting big odds for this run.
Race 10. (20:45) Yeung Uk C3 Handicap (1400m)
#6 – Craig’s Star – Bet Now
Craig’s Star has been sparingly raced throughout his career but he does have talent.
Trained by Danny Shum, the nice type finished fourth when fresh up this season and he was only 2.25 lengths behind the winner.
That form should be good for this and he should represent each-way value.
