Sha Tin Betting Tips and Predictions
When it comes to punting on the Sha Tin Group One Horse Races, you should always keep your eyes peeled and your ears open for the best information out there by doing your research thoroughly. Bet365 is the best betting site for Sha Tin betting.
Tony Cruz is a seasoned trainer, having trained the winner of the Queen Elizabeth II Thoroughbred Horse Race twice in the last five years. This year around, Tony Cruz has trained Exultant, who is a hot favourite going into the race, and Furore, the Winner of the 2019 Hong Kong Derby. Both horses are good bets.
While Exultant comes with odds of 4/7, Furore comes with odds of 9/2. Glorious Forever is a worthy contender as well, with odds of 11/2.
When it comes to punting on the Champions Mile, it is hard to look beyond Beauty Generation (10/11), the Winner of the Champions Mile for the past two years (2018 and 2019). Beauty Generation was the top-ranked miler Race Horse in 2019, and is a Sha Tin betting favourite, going into the race.
Waikuku comes with odds of 5/2, and shouldn't be looked past.
Hadn't it been for a Beat The Clock injury, John Size would have been sizing up a third straight Chairman's Sprint Prize victory with the Champion. Nevertheless, John Size-trained Hot King Prawn (7/4) is a favourite going into the race, having come second in the 2019 edition of the Thoroughbred Horse Race.
Aethero is a hot favourite going into the race as well and comes with odds of 2/1.
