Sha Tin Tips Sunday May 14
Looking for the latest Sha Tin horse racing tips? Our tipsters bring you the best bets and horses to back from all Hong Kong races and find you winners at Sha Tin Racecourse.
Sha Tin is one of two racecourses staging feature horse racing in Hong Kong with the other being Happy Valley racecourse.
Race 2 - NORFOLK HANDICAP CLASS 4 (1600M)
In outstanding form this time in, the Benno Yung-trained DRAGON PRIDE (best odds currently $3.40 with bet365) lines up here winning four of his past six and with Zac Purton back in the saddle, looks the one to beat today. Last start, the Sebring gelding came off a hat-trick of wins when the run came to an end. He finished fifth that day, in a Class 4 on the Happy Valley track. He still ran his last 600m, 5.9 lengths quicker than benchmark, second-best here behind Cheery who is the rookie of the field with just three race starts to his name, drawn wide today and is still a maiden. Already a winner at the track and distance, Purton has a 100% strike-rate with the five-year-old, scoring two from two to date and nicely drawn in gate six, he should taking here.
Race 3 - ALNWICK HANDICAP CLASS 2 (1600M)
Stepping up in grade today, the Danny Chum-trained CHARITY GRACE (best odds currently $5 with bet365) has recorded all four career wins on the Sha Tin track and looks a sound each-way chance of scoring another one here. Last start, the Per Incanto gelding bounced back from consecutive unplaced efforts and took out a Class 3, here over the mile. He ran that out, 5.5 lengths quicker than benchmark, third-best behind The Rock (who is second-up here and a likely danger). Coming in on the limit here (53.5kgs), the drop in weight will be appreciated and the small field will also make life easier in this contest. He recorded the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals last start and with the drop in weight, could manage that again. Matt Chadwick is in charge here and with a solid pace up front, looks to get the last crack at them in the run home. Well worth an each-way ticket in this event.
Race 8 - CUMBERLAND HANDICAP CLASS 3 (1200M)
Boasting a strong all-weather track history, the Frankie Lor-trained EVERYONE’S VICTORY (best odds currently $3.20 with Unibet) comes off a let-up here and on fresh legs will take beating today. Last start, the Deep Field gelding ended his last campaign by finishing second in a Class 3 Hcp, here over 1200m. He ran that trip, 7.1 lengths quicker than benchmark, a new personal best for him and the best effort in this field by more than 3 lengths. Harry Bentley is yet to miss a podium finish with the galloper from seven previous rides. On the all-weather track again, he is two-time winner on the surface over the 1200m and will take catching here again.
