Sha Tin will run an eight-race program on the All-Weather circuit this Wednesday and our preview is included below.

Here are our free Hong Kong racing tips for Sha Tin's meeting today.

Sha Tin Tips on May 29th

Hin Yiu Handicap Tips (Race 3)

Sha Tin Roughie - Race 3 No. 9 Sky Song

Although he was well held in third, this Caspar Fownes-trained galloper recorded a very respectable debut figure over the five furlongs at Happy Valley on March 20.

Sky Song was only fair when following that up with a seventh-of-twelve finish over 1200m, however, he did run into a smart winner in Copartner Prance (won his next two at Class 3 level).

The three-year-old was freshened up after that April 10 outing and with a tick-over trial completed, he finished fifth-of-eleven when resuming at Sha Tin on May 19.

There was more merit to that effort than the sixth-length margin indicates, as Sky Song was easily the pick of the on-speed runners in that race and this looks a little easier.

Hin Yiu Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Sha Tin Best Bet - Race 5 No. 5 Prime Mortar

He appeared to be somewhat at a crossroads with string of mixed performances after recording back-to-back wins early last year, although he's turned it around recently.

Visors have been a recent addition to Prime Mortar and that gear change has provided the necessary spark, as the gelding recorded a big fresh win at Happy Valley.

It was a soft two-length victory, especially given the early work he did from a wide draw via that May 15 outing and he's still well in at Class 4 level after the Angus Chung claim.

Prime Mortar did put the writing on the wall with a slick trial win in good time on the All-Weather circuit prior to that most recent triumph and he finds another winnable race.

Lee On Handicap Tips (Race 6)

Sha Tin Value Bet - Race 6 No. 13 Jubilation

After failing to make any impression in seven runs over his first season in Hong Kong, Jubilation has improved with racing and he's now a four-time winner from 26 starts.

The first two of those victories came at Class 5 level and he made the leap to Class 4 company with relative ease when winning his third attempt in this grade last December.

That Sha Tin event has produced four subsequent winners and while his form mostly tapered off after that, Jubilation performs best early in a prep and he arrives here fresh.

Three of his four career wins have come when either first or second-up and he was a month between runs via the other success, while he carried this same impost via his last win.

Chung On Handicap Tips (Race 7)

Sha Tin Value Bet - Race 7 No. 5 Capital Delight

The son of Capitalist has a good record on the Sha Tin All-Weather circuit and while he has ground to make from a similar affair on May 5, he was only second-up on that occasion.

Capital Delight stuck to the task well in that latest assignment, which followed a decent Happy Valley return when coming from well back in a leader-dominated race.

A galloper who won three of five starts in Australia when campaigning as Capital Tower, the gelding broke through in Hong Kong via this grade first-up at Happy Valley last season.

He made it two Class 3 victories when saluting over this track/trip with 57.5kg on January 7 and after being up in the weights via his last four outings, Capital Delight now carries 56kg.

Fung Wo Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Sha Tin Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 1 Berlin Tango

Despite both having to lump topweights of 61kg in this Class 3, the market appears to have this spot on with Woodfire Bro and Berlin Tango heading the early betting.

While both have strong chances, we're leaning the way of Berlin Tango, a Tony Cruz-trained galloper who is bursting to win and he does have a fitness edge over his main threat.

Woodfire Bro and Berlin Tango clashed on May 11 and while there was merit to both runs, Berlin Tango did make ground from the rear despite speed coming out of the race.

He arguably should've won prior to that at Happy Valley, which followed an All-Weather appearance where he was held-up at key stages and a predicted good tempo here swill suit.
