Shepparton Cup Heats Start Tonight

Tonight’s $50,000 Shepparton Cup meeting looks to be a great event with twelve races scheduled including the four Shepparton Cup heats and Rising Star Sprint Classic Final.

The Cup’s four heats will be attracting some the state’s biggest names as well as plenty of newcomers eager to gain some track experience.

The favourite of heat one is undoubtedly Gardam Prince with 23 wins from 33 starts. Trained by D.N. McDonald, the box one contestant is undefeated on the track from three starts.

The Mark Bell trained Hooky Booky is also a strong contender however he must overcome the awkward six alley this week.

Heat two features the ever improving Go Go Allegro however the Geelong Cup finalist will be contending against the perfect form of Tasmanian Big Moose.

The other dogs to keep an eye on are Din’s Son and box seven starter Hot Price.

As the winner of the Wangaratta and Traralgon Cups, Remo Rubik is a force to be reckoned with as the Group 1 winner battles it out for his third Cup win out of third heat’s box one.

Rising star Winsome Joe is set to shake things up having won nine of his first thirteen starts however Remo Rubik’s strongest rival will be Joshua Allen as he tries to make back-to-back group finals after running in last week’s S.A. Derby.

Heat four is producing yet another box one favourite with True Kiheal as the race’s strongest runner.

The five back-to-back races winner will be up against Kym Hyde which has recently won at Bathurst, Richmond and Dapto.

However True Kiheal will also be up against at least three other possible winners including Lady Gaga, Eagle Eye and Alotto Mojo.

The Shepparton Cup is one of greyhound racing’s calendar highlights and will definitely produce some winners worth discussing in the days to come.
