What Sha Tin Races
Where Sha Tin Racecourse – Tai Po Rd, Sha Tin District, Hong Kong
When Wednesday, April 3, 2024
First Race 7:15pm HKT (10:15pm AEDT)

Hong Kong racing returns to Sha Tin on Wednesday evening for a rare all-weather meeting. The rail is in the true position throughout the circuit, and with consistent rain forecast, watch for jockeys to swing their mounts wider off the inside rail when turning for home to avoid kick-back. The first of eight races is set to get underway at 7:15pm HKT time.

Best Bet: Gummy Gummy

Gummy Gummy should relish the opportunity to get back to his favoured all-weather circuit. The son of Snitzel has been far from disgraced in his two most recent attempts on the Sha Tin and Happy Valley turf tracks; however, his latest placing came at this course and distance on February 4 when beaten less than a half-length by Bundle Of Charm. He boasts two wins at the track and trip, and with Zac Purton back in the saddle, expect him to claim career win number four.

Next Best: Hinokami Kagura

Hinokami Kagura was awful in his first two Hong Kong starts before being tried on the all-weather circuit. It has seemingly unlocked the best of this Jamie Richards-trained gelding, who went close to claiming victory on February 18. He gets the services of Zac Purton for the first time, and with a genuine tempo expected throughout this 1200m contest, watch for Hinokami Kagura to be careering down the centre of the course late.

Next Best Again: Victory Moments

Victory Moments won two starts back at this course and distance, and although he then suffered defeat at the hands of Sing Dragon, he can turn the tables in this 1200m affair. He gets a significant swing in the weights this time, and with a stronger tempo likely to be generated by the likes of Campione and Self Improvement, the son of Speith should get the last look at his rivals when the whips are cracking.
