Welcome to our horse racing preview and betting tips for racing at Sha Tin on Wednesday, May 8th.
We've picked out our three best bets from the meeting below!
(4) Coolceleb showed absolutely nothing in his first five career starts, but he's found his niche on the dirt track at Sha Tin. His last two starts have been over this track and distance and he's performed very well in both. Two starts ago, he won easily, before making up good ground when finishing 3rd last time out. His 22.73 final sectional was the third fastest in the race and if he didn't have to swing so wide on the turn, he surely would have finished closer. Drawn barrier 2 tonight, he should get a good rails run and with some luck in the straight, he should be finishing hard between horses. Looks well placed to win again.
There's a bit of value here in the form of (8) Holy Unicorn. He was beaten 15L last start, which was eight weeks ago, but he had excuses given he was trapped four-wide in midfield throughout the race. He started the $2.60 favourite for the race and had won four of his past five starts leading into it. He's been freshened up and been back to the trials to keep him ticking over. He'll carry just 52kg tonight after the claim for the apprentice, which is 3kg less than what he carried when favourite last start. Draws well in barrier 6, should be up on the speed and should run well based on his form prior to last start. Looks an each way play at $7.00/$2.62.
(5) Glorious Artist looks one of Purton's best chances of the night and should take plenty of beating here. He's had six starts on the dirt for two wins and three placings. He drops back to 1650m tonight after being beaten 2.8L by Dark Dream over 2000m last start, which is strong form for a midweek race. Drawn well in barrier 5, should get a great run and Purton jumps off last-start winner (7) Royal Performer to ride Glorious Artist instead. Looks a very strong chance.
