Craig Rail's Preview for Shepparton

Tue, 16 Jul 2019

The JDC Contractors Trotters Handicap appears to be the most competitive race of the night with a large field of trotters and with the class runners commencing from big handicaps, it appears to be a very even affair. Beta Hanoverdakash is a safe beginner and tried to lead throughout when a close second at Ballarat on Wednesday. She will receive every chance from the pole position. Rory McHinson and Enforce The Law are progressive trotters and are sure to make their presence felt. Majestic Time, Gus Or Bust, Levina, Starlight Storm and Daquiri will all be competitive in what should be the race of the night.

The Moral

Race 2 - No.5 Ballterra

He is not in the "moral" category but his effort to get as close as he did to the winner at Cobram last week was very good.


Take On

Race 6 - No.10 Starlight Storm

He is in great form having won three races in succession but he will find it tougher from the big handicap of 50m.
