Champion pacer Smoken Up is among the nominations for Saturday night’s Group Two $50 000 Neatline Homes Shepparton Pacing Cup.
But a decision was to be made last night whether connections were prepared to start the star in the time-honoured event after being given a 40
The pacer’s trainer-driver, Melton horseman Lance Justice, said he would carefully study the nominations before discussing with Smoken Up’s owners yesterday whether he would line up on Saturday night.
Justice said personally he would have entertained the idea with a 20
‘‘It’s a pretty cruel handicap, but I’ll talk to the owners,’’ Justice said.
Smoken Up collected his fourth South Australian Pacers Cup with an epic, two-horse duel with fellow Victorian Caribbean Blaster on Saturday night and would be a huge drawcard for Shepparton Harness Racing Club’s premier event if he is to line-up in the race.
The only other handicapped runner in the race is Cobram Cup winner Choise Achiever.
Sunday’s Hamilton Cup winner Our Arlington and runner-up Our Blackbird, recent Yarra Valley Cup winner Mustang Mach, Cobram Cup placegetter Washmepockets and Nyah Cup winner Saint Flash are also among the nominations.
Avenel trainer David Aiken has nominated last Friday night’s Melton winner Smudge Bromac and recent Cobram Cup runner-up Composed for the race.
