Four last-start winners are in a talented field to contest the third heat of the Victorian Harness Racing Sports Club Provincial Cup at tonight’s Shepparton Harness Racing Club meeting.
One of the winners, the David Aiken-trained Earth Angle, will be shooting for four successive wins, while another, the NSW-trained General Artworthy, will be shooting for the hat-trick.
