Bairnsdale & Sha Tin Racing Tips for Saturday, October 8th

Sun, 08/10/2017 - 1:44pm, tim_tips

Racing this Sunday, October 8th takes us to Bairnsdale in Victoria for Cup Day, while Sha Tin in Hong Kong also hosts a 10-race card.

We have horse racing betting tips for every race at both venues, along with our best bets for the day below.


R1 – Asset Rich

R2 – Persian Empire / Toorak Warrior EW

R3 – Morning Turf EW / Lord Reset EW

R4 – Senor Alf

R5 – Seven Year Reward

R6 – Deja Blue / Seattle Boom EW

R7 – Dodging Bullets (Best Bet)

R8 – Hazard Ahead / Battles End EW (Best Value)

Best Bet: Race 7 Dodging Bullets

Looks very hard to beat in the Cup. Comes into this third up from a spell and has never finished outside the top two at the distance. Last start was beaten 3L by Theanswermyfriend and Mr Sneaky, which has subsequently turned out to be Group 1 form. Main rival Strong Hand has never won from 12 starts on Good tracks.

Best Value: Race 8 Battles End

Getting back onto a Good track today should help this horse return to its best form. Has run on wet ground in his past four starts but all his best form has been on firm ground. Last time he struck a Good track he ran 2nd in BM70 grade, so from the good draw with the 2kg claim and conditions to suit, he should go well at $8.




R1 – Amazing Star

R2 – Fun Manager

R3 – E Master

R4 – Enchanted Feeling EW / Treasure And Gold EW

R5 – Endearing / PresidentParamount EW

R6 – Home Run (Best Bet) / Imperial Gallantry EW

R7 – Namjong Invincible EW (Best Value)

R8 – Fantastic Eight

R9 – Willie Way / Gonna Run EW

R10 – Fifty Fifty / Super Lifeline EW

Best Bet: Race 6 Home Run

This horse has had two runs back from a spell now, where on both occasions he has been snagged back from wide barriers and run home strongly. He’s come from last in both runs to finish 4th and then 3rd, and from barrier 5 today he will sit much closer to the speed. Joao Moreira takes over now that he’s ready to win and expecting him to go very close today.

Best Value: Race 7 Namjong Invincible

Thought $26 was a ridiculous price. This horse ran 2nd over this track and distance first up last prep, and then won his next start easily. Failed last time we saw him, but resumes today with two trials under the belt and he’s got a good record on the All-Weather Track. Drawn well and can run a nice race.
