Sha Tin Tips Sunday October 17
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 5 - FRANCK MULLER EXCELLENT HANDICAP CLASS 3 (1800M)
Second-up today, the Chris So-trained ENTRUSTED (best odds $6.50 with Sportsbet) looks ideally-placed to go back-to-back here. Last start, the Nathaniel gelding was first-up off a 12-week spell where he drew wide (gate 10 of 10) in a Class 3, here over the mile and proved too strong for them, winning by more than a length on the line with Alex Badel in the saddle. He ran the trip, 5.9 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this field. He also posted the fastest final 800m-200m sectionals for the event. Facing similar company today, he steps up to the 1800m trip here and from an ideal draw in gate three, looks a solid chance, currently at great each-way odds.
Race 7 - PARMIGIANI FLEURIER EXCELLENT HANDICAP CLASS 2 (1800M)
Tony Millard saddles-up C P BRAVE here (best odds $2.70 with Sportsbet) and after a big first-up performance, looks the testing material here and is our Best Bet 🏆 for Sha Tin today. Last start, the Zoffany gelding was fresh off the season break when he contested a Class 2 Hcp, here over the mile. A 10 out of 10 ride from reigning champion Joao Moreira saw the galloper box-seat to the turn, then gain a split along the fence to race home for victory, putting 1.5 lengths on them over the line. He ran the trip, 5.9 lengths quicker than benchmark, a new personal best and the best in this line-up. He also recorded the fastest final 200m sectional in the contest. He comes up with gate four here and maps to box-seat again. Already a winner when second-up, with Moreira staying aboard here, he looks the testing material again and will be hard to hold out today.
Race 8 - THE ORIENTAL WATCH 60TH ANNIVERSARY SHA TIN TROPHY GROUP 2 (1600M)
To the feature race on the card and it could turn out to be a big day for Joao Moreira as he is legged aboard the Caspar Fownes- trained SKY DARCI here (best odds $3.20 with Unibet), as the Darci Brahma gelding shoots for his fifth win at the track. Last start, the galloper was fresh off a 14-week spell when he lined-up in The Celebration Cup, here over 1400m. He sat third-last, eight off the pace to the turn. In the run home, he made many lengths (along the fence) but just peaked on his run inside the final 100m and had to settle for third prize that day. He ran his last 600m, 5.5 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this event and posted the fastest final 800m and 600m sectionals as well. Moreira has been in the saddle for six of the gelding’s seven career wins and gets the opportunity here to make it seven. With three second-up wins from four previous attempts, the five-year-old looks in the mix here to bring up his fifth Sha Tin victory today.
