Goulburn Valley chances line up for shot at Breeders Crown finals

Goulburn Valley-trained pacers will be looking to advance in the heats of the Breeders Crown Series at the Shepparton Harness Racing Club.

Three heats of the Breeders Crown series will feature on a bumper eight-race program to be staged at the Shepparton Harness Racing Club tonight.

All three heats cater for two-year-old pacing colts and geldings, with the lucrative series climaxing with finals at Melton on August 21.

Leading NSW trainer Belinda McCarthy and her champion reinsman husband, Luke, will make the trip from Menangle with the boom youngster Birdy Watch, who is engaged in the third of three heats.

But the exciting Andy Gath-trained Padrisimo had to be scratched from the second heat tonight with a suspected cold.

Birdy Watch suffered a shock loss in the recent Tatlow feature to Kept Under Wraps at Melton and the pair will clash again tonight.

Kept Under Wraps comes from barrier one and Birdy Watch from barrier four.

Recent Vicbred Super Sires winner Feeling Arty will be looking to bounce back for Euroa horseman Cameron Maggs after failing in the Tatlow and is also engaged in the heat.

Last week’s impressive Cobram debut winner It’s Just Kenny, Show Me The Bling, A Matter Of Course and Dreamtime Spirit are other Goulburn Valley-trained youngsters contesting heats tonight.

Racing is from 5.25pm.
