Looking for tips for the latest race meeting at Sha Tin racecourse? Our tipsters bring you the best bets and horses to back from all Hong Kong races and find you winners at Sha Tin.

Sha Tin is one of two racecourses staging feature horse racing in Hong Kong with the other being Happy Valley racecourse. 

See below for the horses to follow from the upcoming race meetings at Sha Tin.

Sha Tin Tips - July 14

The Tony Cruz-trained KA YING STAR has proven to be a very consistent galloper, missing a top-three finish just twice from his 11 career starts and he looks well placed here to continue with that form. Two starts back he convincingly beat home a Class 2 field here over the mile, putting two lengths on Harmony Victory and Right Choice. Last start, he ran an honest race and beat home all but the outstanding Champion’s Way (who has now won six of his seven career starts), beaten just half a length on the line. That is outstanding form coming into this event. The four-year-old ticks every box here and is already a two-time winner at the track and trip. He is my on top selection.

What better way to finish the Hong Kong season off than with jockey of the year, Zac Purton riding the last winner of the night. The John Moore-trained THANKS FOREVER kicked off his racing career with a hat-trick of victories, only to that run end with an unplaced finish last start. Nicely bred by Duporth out of an Exceed And Excel mare, he won his first two races by more than three lengths, then made it three in a row when putting 2.5 lengths on Multimillion in a Class 3 over the 1000m sprint. Stewards questioned his poor performance last start where he finished sixth, beaten nearly four lengths at his first attempt in Class 2 company but no abnormalities were found. Take him on trust here. This could be the race that sees John Moore take the Trainer’s Premiership crown and could see Zac Purton break Joao Moreira’s record of 170 winners in a season. 

Sha Tin Tips - July 7

In the money at his past two starts, SKY TREASURE has the runs on the board and the fitness to give this a real shake. Two starts back, he easily won a Class 4 over 1200m on this track and last start he wasn’t disgraced finishing third against similar company over the same trip. He draws ideally here in gate two and Derek Leung remains aboard after partnering the Stravinsky gelding to three wins and four minor placings from eight rides. He should be on the speed and prominent throughout. Could surprise at big odds. 


Race 10 - LEVADE HANDICAP (CLASS 3) 1200M 
Coming off a poor run at Happy Valley, the Frankie Lor-trained COBY OPPA looks much more at home at Sha Tin and is ideally placed in this company. After finishing second behind Just Not Listening in a Class 3 over 1200m three starts back, the three-year-old then turned it around next start, winning in similar company over the same track and trip. Last start, he missed the jump and was ridden hard early to pick up the pieces which took its toll in the end as he finished down the track. He has since run a very good second behind Winner Supreme in a barrier trial. Drawn the fence here, he should have little trouble finding a forward sit and will prove hard to run down after dictating terms early. A two-winner at the track and trip already, Karis Teetan will be looking for his third win on the gelding.

RESULT : WON ($4.80)

Sha Tin Tips - July 1

Frankie Lor’s grey gelding BIG PARTY looks ideally placed here and he will have to do a lot wrong to lose this one. All five of his Hing Kong starts have been on the Sha Tin track and his latest effort was super impressive. Jumping well, he sat outside the leader and under the guidance of leading jockey Zac Purton, took over passing the 300m mark and left them all in his wake, going on to win by three lengths, running the 1200m in 1:08.4. He has trialled since and won that by more than two lengths. Purton remains aboard and despite rising to Class 2 grade here, a repeat of that last run will see him as the benchmark in this.


Race 10 - BETTER FUTURE 1400M HCP (CLASS 3) 1400M
Putting in his worst performance to date, SOLAR WAI WAI disappointed last start finishing mid-field here behind Happy Fun but he had excuses. He began awkwardly and overraced for the first half of the race. From that point on, he continually ran into the back of the leading group and turning for home, lost all momentum and did well to finish where he did. Umberto Rispoli sticks with him here and if he can jump with them, he should be on the pace from gate two. Both career wins have been on this track and he gets his chance here to make amends.

RESULT : 3RD ($3.60)
