Shepparton reinsman David Moran will be hoping his recent successful partnership with Riverina trainer Kim Hillier continues at today’s Shepparton Harness Racing Club meeting.
The competent driver, who has three drives for the Leeton-based trainer, believes all three pacers can acquit themselves well and are each-way chances in their respective races.
Moran will partner the Hillier-trained Alittle Bit Frosty in race two, a C0 Only class race, Barley Shaker in the third race for three-year-old C0 Only pacers and Mean Courage in race five for C3-C4 pacers.
Moran has won previously on Alittle Bit Frosty and Mean Courage on NSW tracks and has also driven Barley Shaker, so he is familiar with all three pacers.
He believes Alittle Bit Frosty could be the pick of his drives, but he also has a good opinion of the well-drawn Mean Courage who he won on at Leeton on August 8.
‘‘He (Mean Courage) goes pretty well and should be right in it although it’s a handy field,’’ Moran said.
Alittle Bit Frosty and Mean Courage have drawn well in barriers four and three respectively.
Milo High is racing in good form for Mark Buckingham and may be hardest for Alittle Bit Frosty to beat, while Mean Courage has some talented rivals including the well-drawn Royal Deviate, Shes A Killer, Ruby Slippers and My Mums A Star and Donoson who are resuming.
