Race 7 – Moama Bowling Club Echuca Pacing Cup – A total of $30,000 will be on the line in this Group 3 feature race. Motu Meteor is the short priced and clear favourite here. He’s featured in 21 of his 28 career starts, bagging 10 wins in the process. He’s been running steadily of late without being pushed too hard. Looks set to change up a few gears here and run away with a good win. Is going to take a race to beat him here. Code Black showed great improvement in his last start, finishing third after two months of running well behind the features. Second up here and looks ready to continue improving. Shakahari has finished second in both of her last two runs and is closing in on her peak conditioning here. Will be in the mix.
