Sha Tin Horse Racing Selections from Hong Kong

Race 1: Sha Tin Hoi Handicap (1.00am PDT, 4.00am EDT)

#2 Turtle Again is much, much better in the bottom grade. Expecting big things this weekend from him with Hugh Bowman engaged, even from the wide draw. One to beat. #7 Happy Hero is suited over these distances. His recent form has been sound and the inside gate should see him save a stack of ground throughout. Gets his chance. #6 Go Go Go is closing in on a first win. He’s aiming to snap consecutive runner-up efforts. #9 Arthur’s Kingdom recorded an overdue first win in Hong Kong last time out. Next best.

Race 2: Penfold Park Handicap (1.30am PDT, 4.30am EDT)

#1 Mr Ascendancy has the class edge over rivals this weekend. He meets a small field, although he is a winner in the grade above. He’s won twice this term and can easily do so again. #2 Wonder Kit has been nothing short of consistent all season, even though he’s only recorded the one win this term. He deserves another here. #3 Supreme Lucky has more improvement to come. His last two starts have been superb and he’s a major threat. #5 Superb Boy is next in line. He can bounce back.

Race 3: Ma Liu Shui Handicap (2.00am PDT, 5.00am EDT)

#13 Happihood slots in light and he’s making steady improvement. His most recent effort was very good when second at Happy Valley. He’s worth taking a chance on. #3 Tactical Command is racing well and gets another shot here. He should get a sweet run throughout from barrier one. #10 Casa Legend tends to mix his form, although his most recent effort was one of his better performances. #12 General Winner is in solid form and his latest two outings were strong. He’ll make his presence felt this weekend.

Race 4: Shing Mun River Channel Handicap (2nd Section) (2.30am PDT, 5.30am EDT)

#5 Grand Nova can improve after an inconclusive debut at Happy Valley. He’s since been trialling well and Hugh Bowman’s retention is worth keeping a close watch on. One to beat, especially from the right stable. #10 Silver Destiny has been disappointing of late, although his form prior was strong. He only needs to recapture that level of racing to be a factor this weekend. #1 Awesome Treasure is after back-to-back wins. He remains in Class 4. #13 Super Bonus draws well and may roll forward to lead. Next best.

Race 5: Tolo Harbour Handicap (1st Section) (3.00am PDT, 6.00am EDT)

#1 King Miles continues to impress. He was a tidy winner two runs back and does appear to be holding his condition well. One they all must beat. #2 Leedox was unlucky last start and he can easily improve from that run. Hugh Bowman hops up and his biggest challenge will be navigating the wide gate. #7 Currahee closed into fourth last time out. He’s made swift progression and gets his chance this weekend. #10 Fast As Rocket is better than his record suggests. Expecting another forward showing on Sunday.

Race 6: Fo Tan Handicap (3.30am PDT, 6.30am EDT)

#2 James Tak has a super record with three wins from seven starts. He’s never finished worse than fourth and can improve out of sight back on dry ground. Clear top pick. #4 Stellar Express is lightly raced but has shown that he’s a winner in waiting. He goes about his racing well and receives another chance this weekend. #1 Hasten Delight can turn his form around after finishing down the track on rain affected ground. His win two starts ago was very good. #10 Thriving Brothers makes his debut. Next best.

Race 7: Shing Mun River Channel Handicap (1st Section) (4.05am PDT, 7.05am EDT)

#5 Steps Ahead caught the eye with a superb second on debut. He’ll improve after that effort and gate one affords him a great chance. Take beating. #1 Lucy In The Sky has held his condition after breaking through two starts ago. He has a few more rating points in hand. #3 Prince Of Porty is steadily returning to his best. He has the gate to overcome, although deep down he does have the class to defeat this group. #2 Coming Patch is after back-to-back wins. He’s an in-form horse with claims.

Race 8: G3 Lion Rock Trophy Handicap (4.35am PDT, 7.35am EDT)

#4 Galaxy Patch is a serious talent and he should be able to defeat this group. He’s placed at the top-level in the past and it appears as though we are still yet to see his very best. One to beat, as long it’s a dry track. #1 Beauty Joy is hard to catch, however, his win at Group 2 level recently was superb. #3 Taj Dragon is seeking back-to-back wins. He’s consistent and gets his chance here. #8 Chancheng Glory is favoured with no weight on his back. He can find the right spot from gate three under a familiar set of hands.

Race 9: G3 Sha Tin Vase Handicap (5.10am PDT, 8.10am EDT)

#9 Ka Ying Rising was super impressive in Class 2 last start. This is a decent step up, however, he comes into this race under the right circumstances with a featherweight against a string of classy opponents. Worth taking a chance on. #7 Mugen falls into a similar category with the light weight. He’s untapped and his ceiling hasn’t been reached. #1 Victor The Winner can fire forward and lead this group. He’s a Group 1 winner with a stack of class. #2 Invincible Sage has a hefty weight. He won at Group 1 level last start.

Race 10: Tolo Harbour Handicap (2nd Section) (5.45am PDT, 8.45am EDT)

#1 My Flying Angel has the wide draw to overcome, although his form prior to last start was very good. He’s clearly got ability and does get a super chance this weekend, especially back on dry ground. #3 Top Scorer is consistent without winning. He’s finished second four times from five starts in Hong Kong. #2 Let’s Do It has a powerful finish and will be chasing hard. Gets his chance in a suitable grade. #5 Handsome Bomb is lightly raced. He’s talented and deserves respect.

Race 11: Kau To Shan Handicap (6.20am PDT, 9.20am EDT)

#6 Second To None is yet to disappoint with two wins from six starts. He’s swiftly climbing the handicap and this contest is suitable. He’s the in-form horse who is more than capable of recording another win. #14 Lost Child slots in light and comes into this test following a pair of placings. The inside gate is a plus. #4 Storm Rider needs to recapture his best. He’s slipped a touch, although his latest trial was sound. #10 Capital Legend is in the right vein of form. He’ll make his presence felt.
