The Moral

Race 7 - No.2 Delightful Mia

Star sprint mare who draws perfectly to shoot to the front and will only get beat if something is amiss.


Take On

Race 6 - No.7 Shadow Reign

Wangaratta Cup winner but has drawn the outside here and might have to do some work.

Best Bet(s) - $25 Win
R3 No.2 - Major Wish$2*
Has been far from disgraced against much superior opposition of late and dropping back to restricted class here is clearly the one to beat from the good draw.
Best Value - $25 Win x $25 Place)
R6 No.3 - Zuberi$3*
Only fifth in the Wangaratta Cup but was first-up there and from the good draw can be very prominent here, if not win.
Best Roughie(s) - $25 Place
R2 No.11 - Joeys Hangover$16*
Has only had the two wins but they were both here at Shepparton and seems to race very well here and can run a drum despite the second row draw.
Money Race(s)
R6 $20 Trio
