Robert Auber's Preview for Shepparton

Thu, 20 Oct 2016

An excellent program at Shepparton with 8 strong races and most races having capacity fields. There is plenty of depth in most races tonight and it won't be a surprise to see some value saluting the judge throughout the night. Shepparton has an outstanding track and all horses will get every chance if they are good enough.

Track information

Circumference: 1000m, Sprint Lane: Yes, Leader's win: , Leading Trainer: Wayne Potter, Leading Driver: Nathan Jack

The Moral

Race 6 - No 12 Ace Duigan

Some important scratchings have changed the complexion of this race and Ace Duigan will strip fitter and will be hard to hold out.


Take On

Race 8 - No 8 Blazing Brax

This might take a very brave person to take on this short priced favourite who bolted in during his heat win however the draw might be worthy of taking him on.

Best Bet(s) - $50 Win and $50 Place
R6 No.12 - Ace Duigan$3*
He should strip fitter after his run last weekend and gets a nice trailing draw. He can make amends in this.
Best Value - $50 Win an $50 Place
R1 No.9 - Blackbetty Shannon$3*
She's still a maiden but her effort two starts ago was excellent. The bigger track should suit and expect her to be finishing hard.
Best Roughie(s) - $25 Win and $25 Place
R8 No.12 - Phirey Philtra$7*
She's still a maiden but her efforts have been solid. I think she will appreciate the second row draw and will be running on strongly.
Money Race(s)
R7 $84 Worth of Trifectas
