Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:00) Sau Mau Ping C5 Handicap (1600m)
#4 – Jimmu – Bet @ Sportsbet
Jimmu comes off back-to-back placings and he looks ready to score a breakthrough win on Sunday.
The son of Dalakhani ran a length behind the winner at Sha Tin in June before posting a third placing behind Sure Win Win last start.
It’s strong form and having Joao Moreira riding helps.
Race 2. (15:30) Lam Tin C4 Handicap (1200m)
#8 – Steel Win – Bet @ Sportsbet
Steel Win ended his last campaign with a win at Sha Tin and he could continue that form this season.
The Chang-trained four-year-old might have taken seven starts to win his first race, but with Moreira in the saddle, he could go back-to-back.
We wouldn’t be ruling him out with 55kg on his back.
Race 3. (16:00) Lam Tin C4 Handicap (1200m)
#4 – Infinite Power – Bet @ Sportsbet
Infinite Power owns only one win from nine starts, but the six-year-old is good enough to win again.
The son of Smart Missile wasn’t far behind them last time out at Sha Tin, and that race should be a good form guide.
Matthew Poon takes 1kg off his back, which helps.
Race 4. (16:30) San Po C5 Handicap (1400m)
#2 – Seize the Spirit – Bet @ Sportsbet
The seven-year-old ended his last campaign with a second placing at Happy Valley, so he’s good enough to start this campaign off on the right foot.
He has been in steady form for most of his career, and he deserves more than just two wins from 28 starts.
It’s another good ride for Moreira.
Race 5. (17:00) Ngau Tau Kok C4 Handicap (1400m)
#3 – Speed Fay Fay – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old son of Hinchinbrook owns two wins and five placings from 18 starts, so he’s usually around the mark.
He ended last season with consecutive third placings, so the consistency is there, and punters should get value odds for this race.
Race 6. (17:35) Kowloon Bay C3 Handicap (1200m)
#4 – Speedy Mouse – Bet @ Sportsbet
Speedy Mouse scored by 1.5 lengths two starts back in May, and we expect that form to be tough to beat on Sunday.
The four-year-old son of Slade Power is a two-time winner from nine starts and getting Moreira in the saddle could see him return in style.
Watch for a late market push.
Race 7. (18:05) Ngau Tau Kok C4 Handicap (1400m)
#7 – Land Power – Bet @ Sportsbet
Land Power looked good running second at Happy Valley last start and the five-year-old deserves another win.
The five-year-old hasn’t been the easiest horse to follow, but he is typically well-backed and that is a good sign.
Alfred Chan takes 3kg off his back to help with the weight.
Race 8. (18:35) Diamond Hill C3 Handicap (1200m)
#7 – Able Reign – Bet @ Sportsbet
Able Reign is a former Australian runner that finished fourth on debut before winning at Morphettville at group three level.
The son of Dream Ahead didn’t beat an overly strong field on that occasion, but the form stacks up nicely for this level of racing.
Barrier three is ideal, so expect a big effort.
Race 9. (19:10) Choi Hung C2 Handicap (1000m)
#5 – Lucky More – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lucky More looked good during his first season, which included three wins at Sha Tin. He hasn’t won since, but the son of More Than Ready can’t be discounted.
He ran second fresh up last preparation, so anything like that form would see him going close here.
Look for a betting push.
Race 10. (18:45) Kwun Tong C3 Handicap (1400m)
#3 – The Golden Scenery – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old son of Deep Field scored back-to-back wins in Brisbane before coming to Hong Kong and running second in both starts.
He went close on both occasions, so it won’t take him long to win a race. He gets every chance from barrier three and punters should be confident.
