In-form pacers the ones to roll at Shepparton

Last start winners Tezz Khora and Tombstone Eden are set to be the testing material in their respective races at today's Shepparton Harness Racing Club meeting.

Last start winners Tezz Khora and Tombstone Eden look set repeat those successes at today’s Shepparton Harness Racing Club meeting.

The Russell Jack-trained Tezz Khora brained his rivals in returning a career best mile rate time at Charlton last week, while the Wayne Potter-trained Tombstone Eden is coming off a win in a $40000 race at Melton.

Both pacers will again be handled by star local reinsman Nathan Jack.

Tezz Khora has drawn barrier three in his race, the first heat of the Vicbred Platinum Series and, while there are a host of in-form pacers in the field, he still looks the one to toss.

Tombstone Eden possesses a brilliant turn of speed when turned loose and at her last start at Melton beat a classy performer in Press Play.

She has drawn wide in barrier six off the front row and has some talented rivals to content with, but should prove hard to toss if she gets any luck in the run.

The meeting kicks off at 2.10pm with a two-year-old pacers race in which the Wagga-trained Stening has good form to recommend him.

He has three wins in his past four starts and his unplaced run was in the recent Bathurst Gold final when he ran sixth to Artistic Flite. So he should still be the testing material, particularly with Chris Alford taking the drive, but two debutants in the race add more intrigue to the possible outcome.

Narrandera trainer Shaun Snudden usually takes some Victorian prize money home with him whenever he crosses the border and he looks to have top each-way chances in Insanity in the third race and Modern Era in race six, but both pacers will have to overcome second row draws.

In the final event at 6.12pm, the Mark Peace- trained Joelles Dream will be attempting to win his fourth successive race.

He’s returning from a spell and has a back row draw in a race that boasts some talented pacers including the Dean Braun-trained World Famous.
