FIVE heats of the Group 2 Shepparton Cup are set to be run and won today featuring some of the best sprinters in Victoria. We think there are some standout bets for today’s qualifiers, so we have combined them into a multi bet to help our readers get the best return for their investment.
The first heat is race four on the card and is set to jump at 8:12pm AEDT.
Leg 1 – WIN – Shared Equity – Shepparton Race 5 No. 2 @ $2.25
Shared Equity has been one of the most consistent greyhounds in training for quite a while now and she looks poised to race her way into another Group final tonight. She is drawn directly on the outside of a wide runner (Midnight Flynn) but she is armed with dazzling early speed and should have no trouble crossing him before he starts to shift off. She hasn’t raced since finishing down the track in the Group 2 Warragul Cup last month, but expect her to be primed for the mission and winning well.
Leg 2 – WIN – To The Galo’s – Shepparton Race 6 No. 6 @ $4.80
To The Galo’s was a commanding winner of the Group 2 Warragul Cup last start and he will be aiming to go back-to-back in this series. There are a couple of flying machines in this race but he has slow beginners drawn either side of him so he should get every opportunity to wind up and sweep to the lead.
Leg 3 – PLACE – Arby – Shepparton Race 8 No. 2 @ $2.75
Arby scored a scintillating 21.75 victory over the 390 metre sprint at Shepparton last start and if he can repeat that performance he should go very close here. He can take a little while to wind up but has tremendous acceleration once he hits the ground and he should be able to find a forward spot from box two. There are some very smart dogs in this race so he may not be able to win, but he should be good enough to fill a placing.
Combined odds = $29.70 with William Hill
