Bet­ter luck hoped for Kropp at Tara Cup

RAC­ING: Dalby trainer Matt Kropp is hop­ing the Tara track will prove to be lucky this week­end.

Kropp will field one horse in the an­nual Tara Cup, when Zip To The Moon files into the bar­ri­ers.

Zip To The Moon has had a patchy 2018, af­ter great suc­cess last year.

He took out the Dalby Cup as well as the Kumbia Cup in 2017.

His re­cent form has been de­scribed as “patchy” by Kropp, but the Dalby trainer said he has be­lief go­ing into this Sat­ur­day’s race.

“He was prob­a­bly an un­lucky se­cond in Rock­hamp­ton last start, so he might find form in Tara,” Kropp said.

“Re­cently his rac­ing has been hit and miss but we are hop­ing for a good bar­rier.”

The cup will be run over 1400m, which Kropp said was on the limit of his horse’s best dis­tance.

“He will prob­a­bly hang back and we would prob­a­bly like a race which is a bit off the pace,” he said.
