Race 1: Tate's Cairn Handicap 

 #4 Blotting Paper can find the front and run this group along. He won well last start and pairs favourably with Blake Shinn here in his bid for back-to-back wins. #11 Crown Avenue knows what it's all about. He's been consistent this term and was a strong winner two starts ago on the dirt. Expect he carries on with his solid form. #2 Righteous Doctrine mixes his form but, in this grade, has to be a threat. The dirt is of no concern to his chances. #1 Handsome Twelve is racing well. Next best. 

 Race 2: To Fung Shan Handicap 

 #5 Robot Warrior can bounce back after a lacklustre effort last start. He's much better than that and his run prior to that when winning shows this. Expect he returns to form getting out over 10 furlongs again from gate three. #9 Right As Rain has a powerful finish when required. Interesting to see him get out over this distance but it appears as though it will suit. #10 Vukan is after back-to-back wins. He's in form and commands respect. #7 Stimulation is not without his chance. Next best. 

 Race 3: Hung Mui Kuk Handicap 

 #3 Charity Go is chasing back-to-back wins. He's in superb form at the minute and he appears well placed to carry that on with him from Happy Valley to Sha Tin. This is winnable. #2 Turin Redsun was solid in the Hong Kong Derby two runs ago but even better the start prior when second in the Hong Kong Classic Cup. He looks well placed to step up and figure here. #8 Running Glory knows how to win and get the job done. This is a strong chance for Antoine Hamelin. #7 Looking Great is nothing short of consistent. Must respect. 

Race 4: Sha Tin Pass Handicap 

 #2 Millennium Falcon steps back down to Class 4 after a pair of lacklustre efforts in the grade above. This is a more than suitable dip as he chases his third win in Class 4 this term. #4 Beauty Nova mixes his form but is showing a bit of early toe. Joao Moreira hops up here and his booking bears close watching for trainer John Size. #6 Maximize Heart is racing well and gets the services of Alexis Badel. Keep safe. #12 Moeraki mixes his form but does step away favourably from gate two. He's next best. 

Race 5: Piper's Hill Handicap 

#3 So We Joy gets his chance to land another win here from gate one. He's racing well as a winner two starts ago and his pairing with Vincent Ho commands respect. He's a dirt specialist who can capture this one. #7 Romantic Combo is racing well and has claims again from gate four. He's always a threat in these contests. #1 Chancheng Prince can improve back in Class 3 where he is a two-time winner already this term. #10 Amazing Teens is after back-to-back wins. Next best. 

 Race 6: Sha Tin Heights Handicap 

 #2 Phoenix Light is progressing well and should improve with a step down to Class 4. He pairs with Zac Purton who takes over for this contest and with the ability he's showing, a win in this grade is close. #8 Beauty Tycoon has the class but displayed a stack of inexperience on debut. He's a risk but if he puts it together, then expect a big run under Joao Moreira. #9 California Vanes has claims, especially with consistency on his side. #1 Enchanting Ibis won well two starts ago. He's holding his condition. Next best. 

Race 7: G3 Lion Rock Trophy Handicap 

If #4 Excellent Proposal can put it all together then he is the one they all have to beat. He turned an impressive third behind Golden Sixty last start and that form should carry him a long way to winning here for Joao Moreira, who has won this race four times. #7 Cheerful Days is a winning machine this season having prevailed six times. He's always thereabouts with a clean run. #6 Beauty Joy is after back-to-back wins. He draws well and should run this field along in front. #3 Savvy Nine is next best. 

Race 8: Eagle's Nest Handicap 

 #3 Packing Treadmill scored in style last start. He can carry on that form here under Zac Purton as long as he can offset the tricky gate. He's a talent and does appear to have the most upside here. #1 Buzzinga hit the ground running in Hong Kong with two wins from his first three starts. Gate one holds him in good stead. #4 Sakewin is out to remain unbeaten. He's two-for-two and is favoured from gate four. #11 Kai Xin Dragon is better than his record lets on. Expect a big run with no weight on his back from the good gate. He's an each way play. 

Race 9: Kau To Shan Handicap 

#10 Our Lucky Glory has done well since his arrival in Hong Kong and with the right run and dry conditions he does appear well placed to go on with it. #14 Erimo is chasing back-to-back wins. He rise in class but does get a handy dip in weight. Gate one and Joao Moreira suits. #5 Dragon Fortune is in form and only needs to offset the wide gate to be a factor again. #8 Massive Action is well weighted for a last start winner. Strong booking of Zac Purton has him with claims. 

 Race 10: Amah Rock Handicap 

 #3 Fantastic Treasure returns following an extended layoff. He's all class and his trials have been very, very sound. If he can find his best then he could well prove too much for this group. #2 Blaze Warrior won very well two starts ago. He's holding his condition and gets another chance here from the inside draw with Joao Moreira up. #4 Voyage Warrior is returning to his best. He has the class as a Group 2 winner and the inside gate here should give him every opportunity. #7 Packing Victory returns following time off with injury. Keep safe.
