Sha Tin horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:00) Wah Fu C5 Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Shanghai Power – Bet @ Sportsbet
Shanghai Power is gunning for three consecutive victories after scoring at Happy Valley by two lengths fresh up.
Having race experience this season is ideal as he’s facing a lot of fresh up runners. We expect his fitness to be a major factor here.
Punter should get each-way odds.
Race 2. (15:30) Fuk Loi C3 Handicap (1200m)
#10 – Super Axiom – Bet @ Sportsbet
Super Axiom has been well-backed with the services of Joao Moreira in the saddle. The four-year-old owns one win from five starts, but he should add more this season.
The son of Exceed and Excel won by two lengths to kick off his career before struggling in subsequent runs, but he should be better suited to this grade.
54kg on his back is ideal.
Race 3. (16:00) Shun Lee C4 Handicap (1400m)
#4 – Loyal Baby – Bet @ Sportsbet
Loyal Baby is fresh up after running fourth at Sha Tin in July. He is only a one-win type from 10 starts, but he doesn’t meet an overly tough field here.
He is a son of War Command who gets the services of Karis Teetan, and he’s in good hands. His only win came in Ireland, so it’s about time he showed something in Hong Kong.
Race 4. (16:30) Oi Man C4 Handicap (1200m)
#9 – The Best Hero – Bet @ Sportsbet
Consistency is with The Best Hero, who has finished third in three of his last four starts.
The four-year-old son of Siyouni has yet to win from 11 starts, but his fresh up effort for second behind Steel Win is a good betting guide.
55.5kg on his back helps and barrier three is ideal.
Race 5. (17:00) Kwong Fuk C4 Handicap (1200m)
#4 – Infinity Win – Bet @ Sportsbet
Infinity Win owns two placings from two starts and there is little wrong with that form going forward.
The Hayes-trained son of Proisir ran 1.5 lengths behind the winner on debut before closing that gap to under a length last start.
Zac Purton rides and punters should expect a tidy effort.
Race 6. (17:35) Shun Lee C4 Handicap (1400m)
#10 – Breeze of Spring – Bet @ Sportsbet
Breeze of Spring ended his last preparation with a 1.3-length win at Sha Tin, which is good enough form for this race.
The six-year-old son of Pins likes racing at Sha Tin, and having Moreira riding is only going to strengthen his chances.
Most of the early money has come for the favourite.
Race 7. (18:05) The Celebration Cup (1400m)
#3 – Sky Darci – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sky Darci is one of the better types going around in Hong Kong, so we’re expecting a nice return to racing.
The seven-time winner owns two fresh up wins, so finding form early in his campaign isn’t a problem for the five-year-old.
It’s another good ride for Moreira and the weight of 54.5kg is a steal.
Race 8. (18:35) Fu Tai C3 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Ima Single Man – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ima Single Man owns three wins and three placings from 15 starts, including a win at Sha Tin.
The four-year-old ended his last campaign with some excellent performances before returning to run second at Sha Tin.
Having the race fitness only helps his chances here.
Race 9. (19:10) Hing Man C3 Handicap (1400m)
#4 – Maldives – Bet @ Sportsbet
Maldives scored two wins from his last three starts, and with both wins coming at Sha Tin, it bodes well on Sunday.
The five-year-old son of Burgundy doesn’t know how to run a bad race, and he only needs luck from a wide barrier to go close.
Having Purton in the saddle should help with that.
Race 10. (19:45) Cheung Hong C2 Handicap (1200m)
#5 – Killer Bee – Bet @ Sportsbet
Killer Bee is shooting for his fourth consecutive win after scoring three on the bounce last season.
The Caspar Fownes-trained four-year-old has missed only one of his five starts, so there are big expectations this season.
Punters will likely have to take short odds.
