Robert Auber's Preview for Shepparton

Sun, 09 Dec 2018

Shepparton hosts a big Sunday afternoon of harness racing with 10 races and an early morning start of 11.43am.
It looks to be a tough meeting being a restricted meeting and quite often these meetings deliver some upsets throughout the day and punters might need to tread with caution when playing the exotics.
