Daily Mail: Early start for Koblenz at Shepparton

Greyhound fans are in for a treat with G1 Melbourne Cup champion Koblenz lining up at Shepparton before midday.

Three-time G2 country cup winner Ferdinand Boy faces G2 finalist Oriental Amber and the in-form Kepal, while G1 finalist Mr. Speaker and G3 finalist Zigzag Cabang are also in action.

G1 Maturity Classic finalist Hill Top Jack v G2 Geelong Gold Cup winner Weblec Jet v G1 Harrison-Dawson placegetter Carry On Angel v dual G2 country cup winner Yozo Bale should be a terrific battle at Geelong this afternoon.

👀 Must Watch Race 👀

Mixed 3/4

📍 Shepparton 🏁 Race 4
📏 450m ⏱ 11:40am

The Watchdog says 🎤: KOBLENZ (5) should be leading throughout, while his kennelmate KING OF GLORY (1) should be able to land in second spot and secure the quinella finish. RIO BASKIN (2) is flying at present and can round out the minor money.

‘Must Watch Race’ Preview 🎤:

Greyhound fans are in for a treat this morning as one of the best sprinters in KOBLENZ (5) goes to work. He recently captured the Group 1 Melbourne Cup and he followed that up with a terrific third in the inaugural TAB Phoenix. He is two-of-two over this track/distance with a smart 25.12sec PB here, however, a lot has happened since the last time he raced over this track/distance. If he spears the lids today, I’m expecting a sub 24.90sec run from the champ. He is going to be unbackable odds, so it might be worthwhile anchoring him up front in your exotics ahead of his kennelmate KING OF GLORY (1) and the in-form RIO BASKIN (2).

The Watchdog says
🎤 : It should be a big day for the Geall kennel with KOBLENZ (5) and FERDINAND BOY (8) expected to lead throughout in their respective races. ZIGZAG CABANG (7) has some electric wins to his credit, and he is armed with blistering early speed. If he can step on terms, he should be able to cross and break them up through the bend.

💰 $5 Win – TEDDY LOGAN
📍 Shepparton 🏁 Race 5 🔲 Box 5 📏 450m ⏱ 11:57am
TAB fixed odds: $2.60 Win
Form 👉 https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666540536/race/5


The Watchdog says
🎤 : ‘Teddy’ has a big engine, and the smaller line-up will definitely suit him today. If he can step evenly, he should be able to sit outside BERETTA BOY (1) early and then work past him in the middle stages. ‘Teddy’ has the ability to run around the 25.20sec mark and they will have a hard time reeling him in.
