SAT 02 MAR 2019 – SHA TIN

Welcome to Hong Kong racing at Sha Tin Racecourse featuring the Association of Hong Kong Racing Journalists Challenge Cup and the Singapore Turf Club Trophy. Lucky 8 Racing has selected 6 priority races for your consideration. Good luck for this afternoon.

Race 1 – Nil Priority

Several runners are having only their first or second career starts in Hong Kong. It is not possible to accurately assess a race such as this.

4-8-13-3

Race 2 – Nil Priority

Class 5 races are the lowest class of race. Occasionally they provide good betting value but not in this particular case.

1-7-2-5

Race 3 – Nil Priority

The rating patterns in this race are far too erratic to make any accurate assessments.
