PRINCESS ZESTA and FEDERAL MORGAN will provide the early speed here with SEASIDE SHUFFLE and DEFY sitting behind them. With a clean getaway, DEFY looks the winner here. He has a great win strike rate (18 from 37) and has won from box 3 at Wenty at his only attempt. Expect him to finish over the top of his rivals.
Tip: DEFY @ $2.50
This race is set up for BIT FLASH to win well. From box 1 he should have no problem leading he has a great record at track and distance (5:2-2-1). He is the best dog in the race with the best draw! He wins. ROUSED from box 4 is the only danger if any.
Tip: BIT FLASH @ $1.70
An outstanding field of chasers will run in this year’s Shepparton Cup. HARD STYLE RICO sizzled around the track last week in 24.77 but will need to contend with WHISKEY RIOT next to him at box rise. WHISKEY RIOT was an impressive winner last week and has an impressive strike rate and must be respected. With blistering early speed and the rails draw, JEBRYNAH looks the one to beat. He broke the 25 second barrier here last week and can go quicker tonight.
