Sha Tin is one of two racecourses staging feature horse racing in Hong Kong with the other being Happy Valley racecourse.
Race 6 - CUMBERLAND HANDICAP (CLASS 3) 1200M
Thereabouts at his past few, the Caspar Fownes-trained SKY SHOW looks right in the mix here. Last start, the Showcasing gelding drew the outside gate (11) making things difficult for Joao Moreira as he took on a Class 3, here over 1200m. Moreira was forced to push forward on the galloper and using up a lot of early fuel, eventually gained the front running. Leading by three on straightening, he hit the line strongly but was nabbed on the post by a smart one in Hurry Hurry Gain who looks a promising type. Shy Show still ran a new personal best, covering the trip 5 lengths quicker than benchmark the best I this line up. He’ll need to repeat all of that good work here as he comes up with gate 10 in this event. Moreira remains aboard and after six previous rides on the four-year-old, is still looking for his first win on him. Maybe this time.
Race 7 - ESSEX HANDICAP (CLASS 4) 1200M
Next Best 🥈No. 9 LITTLE THUNDER Best Price Coming Soon Bet Now!
In great touch of late, the Tony Millard-trained LITTLE THUNDER looks well placed enough in this field to make it back-to-back wins here. Last start, the Hussonet gelding destroyed a Class 5 field, here over 1200m where he carried 60.5kgs while putting 2.5 lengths on them in the run home. He ran his last 600m 3 lengths quicker than benchmark, just 3 lengths behind Seven Heavens who draws wide here. He also ran the fastest final 800m, 600m and 400m sectionals in the contest. Karis Teetan sticks with him after holding the reins in his past four appearances. Drawn better here in gate six, he should enjoy a sit just behind the pace and despite the rise in class, he carries 5kgs less here which should see him hard to hold out.
Race 9 - ALNWICK HANDICAP (CLASS 2) 1200M
Best Value 💰No. 2 RED DESERT Best Price Coming Soon Bet Now!
Yet to enjoy victory this preparation, the John Size-trained RED DESERT gets his chance here from a slightly better draw. Last start, the Oasis Dream gelding drew gate 10 (of 11) and was trapped four wide going out of the straight (the first time). Overracing slightly, he finally found the fence for Chad Schofield but up a lot of juice to get there. The pace was a cracker and he never stopped chasing, winding up in sixth place over the line. Drawn better here, he should enjoy an easier run from gate seven and has a new rider with Antoine Hamelin taking the reins for the first time. Fitter for six starts now, he looks right in the mix here.
