We have a good card of racing from Sha Tin in Hong Kong on Sunday afternoon and we kick off our coverage with Race 2 on the card. Stay tuned as we cover more races of good betting action from Hong Kong across the afternoon and into the evening.
Sha Tin R2 #7 Sweet Bean 21.00 / 5.20 – Sweet Bean is knocking on the door for a win in this class and looks to have found a suitable race here to break through. Two runs back was unlucky when over the 2200m and was unlucky again last start when checked down the straight over 1800m. Stays at 1800m here today which is his favourite distance having won all 5 career wins at this distance. Looks to be way over the odds and can be backed with confidence on an each/way basis, betting up the place.
Sha Tin R3 #2 Silverfield 6.50 / 2.50 – Silverfield has been racing without luck his past couple and will only need a touch of luck here to give this a shake. He had little luck down the straight last start this track and trip when beaten only 3.5l. He had been good prior when up in grade and the form lines through those runs reads very well for this. He has drawn well in gate 5 so can settle closer and with D.Whyte aboard will be given every chance. He ticks all the box’s here and should give this a massive shake at decent each/way odds.
Sha Tin R4 #8 Namjong Invincible 2.70 – Resumed last start with an unlucky 2nd beaten less then a length this track and trip. Will strip fitter and should get the gun run throughout from gate 2 for Zac Purton. Looks to have plenty of upside and in a very winnable race should prove very hard to beat with all the favours expected.
Sha Tin R5 #6 Our Folks 8.50 / 2.70 – The last two runs of Our Folks have him primed for a race like this. He has drawn well here in gate 2 so can enjoy a good run throughout in behind the speed. Las start he didn’t have the best of luck when raced wide but still only beaten 3.3l. That form reads well and with a touch of luck here should go very close.
Sha Tin R6 #4 Amazing Agility 8.50 / 2.60 – Amazing Agility was very good when resuming hitting the line strong from well back over 1600m when didn’t get much luck early. Is already a winner second up and the rise to 1800m here looks ideal. Strips fitter and has the in form Brett Prebble aboard so will be given every chance. Looks over the odds in early betting and warrants each/way backing at nice odds.
Sha Tin R9 #8 Circuit Hassler 7.50 / 2.50 – Circuit Hassler has been freshened for this and drops back to his favoured 1600m. He has been super competitive in G1 and G3 company and last time he raced in a class 2 over 1600m he was only beaten a length. Likely to be forward enough to be winning this fresh and looks an improving type. Looks over the odds back in this company.
