Craig Rail's Preview for Shepparton

Sun, 17 Nov 2019

There are two heats of a National Ratings 52-55 series that highlight the program of seven races at Shepparton. The Steven and Ryan Duffy combination can play a leading role in the series with the consistent pacers Interest Me and Spring Delight both being major chances in their respective heats. Both horses were placed behind the smart pacer Shark Port in handy time at Cobram last Monday.
