Hong Kong Sprint Betting Odds Comparison - Sha Tin

13/12/2020 06:00:00

We’re counting down to the 2020 Hong Kong Sprint on Sunday 13 December, with Sha Tin Racecourse hosting this spectacular event and this is one of the four Hong Kong International Races, with this also being the final leg in the Global Sprint Challenge.

Bet On 2020 Hong Kong Sprint

The Hong Kong Sprint is run over 1,200 metres and Classique Legend is trading around the even money mark to become the latest champion and follow in the footsteps of recent winners Beat The Clock and the famous Mr Stunning who landed a double in 2017 and 2018.

Can Classique Legend Win the Hong Kong Sprint?

Classique Legend is the talking horse going into the big sprint race at Sha Tin Racecourse, with bookmakers such as bet365 and Unibet going odds-on about the runner, although William Hill are prepared to be more aggressive with their prices and they currently offer odds of 7/4.

The horse is clearly highly notable in international racing after winning The Everest and trainer Les Bridge will have the runner primed to run a big race after previously winning The Shorts, with Kerrin McEvoy on board the charge that beat Bivouac Gytrash in that mega money race held at Randwick Racecourse.

Hot King Prawn Bidding to Win in Hong Kong

If Classique Legend is relatively untested when it comes to running at Sha Tin Racecourse, the same can’t be said of Hot King Prawn who has virtually ran exclusively at this track over the past few years, with the six-year-old trading as second favourite in the betting market to land the spoils.

Interestingly, the Size-trained charge went on a run of races without landing a victory, although there was everything to like about the Jockey Club Sprint on 22 November 2020 and this victory in a Group 2 race suggests that the horse can find the sort of improvement to win this encounter.

Computer Patch is a young and talented Australian-bred horse who could run a big race over six furlongs and his sprinting credentials have been on display for all to see when winning a Group 3 Handicap on 1 October 2020, while his recent effort when finishing second behind Hot King Prawn gives him a shot of victory here.
