Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (14:45) Yi O C5 Handicap (1800m)
#3 – Joy Master – Bet @ Sportsbet
Joy Master scored a quality win at Sha Tin two starts back before finishing fourth at Happy Valley last month.
The son of Rogano is a three-time winner from 38 starts and he doesn’t have much of a field to beat on Sunday.
Race 2. (15:15) Tong Fuk C4 Handicap (1200m)
#6 – My Sugar – Bet @ Sportsbet
My Sugar ran fourth on debut at Sha Tin and he was only beaten by two lengths. The four-year-old was heavily backed at $2, but punters should expect longer odds this time around.
Zac Purton retains the ride and that should give punters confidence. Drawing barrier five is ideal and it looks the best bet of the race.
Race 3. (15:45) Sui Ho Wan C4 Handicap (1400m)
#2 – Leading Fortune – Bet @ Sportsbet
Leading Fortune is our leading fancy, despite running well down the track fresh up at Sha Tin.
The John Size-trained looked better towards the end of last season, which included a win at Sha Tin, followed by a second placing.
He should represent value in the market on race day.
Race 4. (16:15) Tung Chung C5 Handicap (1400m)
#4 – Vital Spring – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Lui-trained eight-year-old isn’t getting any younger but that was a good sign when finishing second at Happy Valley last start.
The son of Per Incanto has finished in the money in nine of his 36 starts, so he has amounted a good record throughout his career.
Race 5. (17:05) Shan Lo Wan C4 Handicap (1000m)
#3 – United We Stand – Bet @ Sportsbet
United We Stand is coming off back-to-back placings and he is helped by the 4.5kg apprentice claim.
The Charlie Shum-trained four-year-old has found his best form of late, which includes a win and two placings.
Expect another good effort with the lighter weight.
Race 6. (17:40) Ngong Ping C3 Handicap (1650m)
#3 – Elite Patch – Bet @ Sportsbet
Elite Patch has been sparingly raced of late but he has class and comes into this race with consecutive placings.
The son of Hard Spun is a four-time winner and he also has six placings to his name. Two of those wins have come on this track and that bodes well for this race.
Punters should expect each-way odds.
Race 7. (18:10) Tai O C4 Handicap (1650m)
#1 – Party Everyday – Bet @ Sportsbet
Tony Cruz lines up the five-year-old gelding which rarely runs a bad race. He is a son of Snitzel that has two wins and five placings from 14 starts, which is a tidy effort.
He has yet to finish worse than second from four starts at Sha Tin and he gets the inside draw with Karis Teetan.
Race 8. (18:40) Mui Wo C3 Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Temple of Heaven – Bet @ Sportsbet
Douglas Whyte lines up the talented three-year-old which should appreciate the fitness of his most recent effort.
The son of Iffraaj is a former European that was always going to need time to mature in Hong Kong. He could be ready to strike now against an even field.
Race 9. (19:15) Fan Lau C3 Handicap (1000m)
#7 – Lucky Maryknoll – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lucky Maryknoll is a former Australian that ended her career with three wins and three placings from 10 starts.
The mare by Nicconi is a rare female thoroughbred in Hong Kong and she could show the boys a thing or two.
She should have every chance to beat this field.
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.
