Sha Tin Tips July 11
- Latest horses to back at Sha Tin
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 9 - PINGWU SPARK HANDICAP (CLASS 3) 1200M
Nicely drawn and in form, the Manfred Man-trained DUBLIN STAR (best odds $7.50 with Ladbrokes) ticks all the boxes here and looks a genuine threat to our race favourite Drops Of God. Two starts back, the Savabeel gelding pulled off a good win in Class 3 company, here over 1200m where he ran the trip in a smart 1:08.2. Then last start, he was far from disgraced when finishing runner-up to the very talented Killer Bee in similar conditions. That was win number four from five starts for the promising Caspar Fownes-trained three-year-old. Dublin Star ran his last 600m, 8 lengths quicker than benchmark (so he certainly wasn’t loafing in the run home), that was the best effort in this field. He also posted the fastest final 400m and 200m sectionals for the race. He chased ‘the Bee’ all the way home, taking ground off him in the final stages. He lines up here in gate 6, with winning jockey Karis Teetan sticking with him. Let’s run with him today.
Race 10 - THE HONG KONG RACEHORSE OWNERS ASSOCIATION TROPHY HANDICAP (CLASS 1) 1200M
Next Best 🥈No. 2 STRONGER $3.00 Bet Now!
The Douglas Whyte-trained STRONGER (best odds $3 with Neds) has been racing without any luck of late but gets the opportunity to turn that all around here today. Last start, the Not A Single Doubt galloper made it three runner-up finishes from his past four starts when he crossed the line in second place behind Courier Wonder in the Group One Sha Tin Vase, here over 1200m. There’s no shame running second over this distance when they post 1:08.1 for the journey. This is a big drop in grade here and ideally drawn in gate three, Vince Ho will get the gun-run on the four-year-old and he deserves a change of luck today.
Race 11 - CONTENTMENT HANDICAP (CLASS 3) 1400M
Best Bet 🏆No. 6 BLAZE WARRIOR $1.50 Bet Now!
Unbeaten in two starts, the John Size-trained BLAZE WARRIOR (best odds $1.50 with Ladbrokes) is up in grade here but still looks the best of the day and will take a ton of beating. Two starts back, he was on debut when he put away a Class 4 field, here over 1200m where he ran a time of 1:08.5, and that’s moving for a first-timer. Then last start, conditions were identical and the end result was the same only this time, the victory was even more convincing, winning the race by more than three lengths. He ran his last 600m, 5.6 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this line-up and posted the fastest overall sectionals for the race as well. He is shaping up to be a very smart galloper and with Joao Moreira sticking with him here, he will prove hard to beat. Due to the skinny odds on offer, it may pay to use him as an anchor for your multis today.
