We’ve put our best Hong Kong tips together for the later races on the card and it's worth noting that you can watch every race on Sky Sports Racing or with UNIBET. All you have to do is bet £1 on any of the races and you can watch live on Unibet's website.
GRADE ONE (Sha Tin Race 5, 6f, 8.05am GMT)
May find things tough from stall 13 but top jockey Zac Purton should give every assistance. Has won once in 13 starts at class 3 level since October 2018 and has been dropping in the weights as a result. Finally able to compete in this class 4 level again and is now 4kgs below his last winning mark so looks capable of resuming winning ways.
SAM’S LOVE (Sha Tin Race 6, 7f, 8.40am GMT)
Zac Purton can hopefully strike again aboard Sam’s Love in race 6. He’s been holding his form well of late, winning over this course and distance three starts ago and has retained his consistency. Has plenty of scope off this mark given he's 3kgs below his highest career mark in Hong Kong and a good draw in stall 4 gives Purton plenty of tactical options.
MIG ENERGY (Sha Tin Race 7, 5f, 9.10am GMT)
Put in a decent performance in his first run since moving to Hong Kong when sixth of 12 at Happy Valley a couple of weeks ago. Needs to prove he can handle the course here at Sha Tin but he had enough ability to win a decent sprint handicap in his native Australia and should go well here. Trained by Hong Kong legend Tony Cruz, Mig Energy can run big on his second start in the country.
TOYCOON (Sha Tin Race 8, 7f, 9.40am GMT)
Many GG customers will be familiar with Neil Callan who now rides in Hong Kong. Callan has ridden 15 winners this season and can add to that tally with Toycoon, who makes just his third start in Hong Kong. Toycoon’s fifth-placed finish last time can be upgraded given that he missed the break and jockey Matthew Chadwick dropped his reins when making his challenge late on and we can expect better from Callan here,
COT CAMPBELL (Sha Tin Race 9, 1m, 10.15am GMT)
Saves his best Hong Kong performances for this course and ran a race full of promise last time when ffnishing fourth after being trapped four wide for much of the route, while he was badly baulked turning for home. Has been dropped further in the weights and should be competitive off this mark.
TRANSCENDENT (Sha Tin Race 10, 6f, 10.50am GMT)
This horse was known as Pizzicato when trained in Europe and won on all-weather finals day at Lingfield last year before going on to win at Listed level and finish placed in a Group 3. Produced a strong late finish to come from a long way back to win on his Hong Kong debut and that run suggested plenty of promise given it was his first run for a year. Should go well under Chad Schofield.
