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.

The Glenn Douglas-trained Rogers Passion and the Keith Cotchin-prepared Four Zoe are the other last-start winners in the race, which looks one of the best contests since Shepparton Cup night.

The Blake Jones-trained and driven General Artworthy has the best draw of the fancied runners, coming off the pole.

Earth Angel, who Scott Dyer will drive, has barrier four in the 2190m event for C1-only class pacers.

Rogers Passion has to come from an outside front-row draw, while Four Zoe is an ODM pacer who has the outside of the second row to contend with.

But the race is far from a four-horse affair.

Every runner has each-way claims, but Earth Angels is a talented pacer who looks the testing material again.

Excellent nominations for the meeting have produced a nine-race card, starting at 7pm and finishing at 10.50pm.

In-form Shepparton reinsman David Moran can get punters away to a good start in race one when he drives the Jayne Davies-trained Holdonsu, while last season’s star two-year-old pacing filly Mindarie Priddy looks to have her rivals covered to send punters home on a winning note in the final event.
