Solid Tatura card

February 17, 2017

Jockey Jason Benbow will be aboard Carlistos.

Action returns to Tatura and Shepparton Racing Club today.

The Friday race day at Tatura has eight races on the program, with the first at 1.30pm.

There have been four scratchings in Tatura Pine Shavings and Sawdust Maiden Plate, cutting the field down to only five runners.

Trainer Tim Grace should like his chances of a victory, having two out of the five with New Zealand gelding Langkasuka, along with Rain Or Shine.

Renowned trainer Darren Weir has Autonomous and Effleurer in the XXXX Gold Super VOBIS 3YO Maiden Plate.

There will be some local eyes focused on the fourth race of the program, the Escape Travel Shepparton Maiden Plate.

Jockey Jason Benbow will be aboard Carlistos, which has a number of Shepparton East Football Club members among his ownership group.

After a less-than-ideal start to his career, Carlistos ran well in his last start at Benalla last month, but faded late.

The Revenant, Haunted Stream and Northern Charm look to be ones to beat in that race.

The last is at 5pm, with Superstar Rockstar out to make it three wins in a row in the Ladbrokes Odds Boost Benchmark 58 Handicap.

The Lindsay Park stable has a runner in this one, with All I Am looking to cause an upset for David Hayes and Tom Dabernig.

The track is rated a Good 4, with a forecast of mostly sunny and 29°C.
