After his talented horse Tiger Thompson has been sold overseas from his stable, harness racing trainer Brad Mowbray will be looking for a replacement pacer to go through to the top grades. 

Kingmaker might be that horse and he is a leading chance in the third leg of pick six at the New Zealand Metropoliton meeting tonight at Addington.

The son of Mach Three has won his first two races in succession with the last win in 1-58.7 mile rate with a quick last half in better than 57 seconds. 

Driver Matthew Williamson will have plenty of options on Kingmaker from gate two and he looks a good chance to make it a hat trick of wins tonight.

Kingmaker is currently a $2.70 Fixed Odds win favourite with the New Zealand TAB.

Tonight the pick six is on Races 4-9 inclusive guaranteed to $25,000 if struck.


Leg 1     Race 4 [7:10pm]

A big finisher from last week Bettor Getta Lover has drawn badly again in tonights race but has the class to overcome the draw. Chatty Man from the in form Paul Court stable has run two good seconds at his previous two starts and is also a great winning chance. Pocket Call was well supported last start and was a good winner at recent trials and is another worth including in the first leg. A R Rose has also been ok at recent workouts.


Leg 2     Race 5 [7:40pm]

There look to be several winning chances in the second leg of pick six.  Rogie Falls is the top chance and TAB favourite who draws the ace in the mobile 1950m race. He is needed along with Kapai who had good support at his first race day start. The mobile will suit Kapai and also Midnight Memories who was good running home late last start. Zeddie Marit is a bit of an unknown but the TAB bookies have kept him safe and he did win his qualifying trial and is also needed.


Leg 3     Race 6 [8:10pm]

Kingmaker has won his first two races and does look to have a bit of a motor but this is a decent step up so no good thing. De Lancome should get a good run from the ace draw and could swoop late if the pace is on. Spare a thought for Nurburgring who was unlucky last start and draws ok in barrier three. Franco Texas has the gate speed and could lead but has not been finishing off his races like he can but is needed. Sails also ran home well last start and if she got a cart into the race before the turn could upset them.

Leg 4     Race 7 [8:39pm]

A tricky leg of pick six here with a stand start affair over the 2000m stand. Prestonpans gets his chance from the ace if he can begin quickly and keep handy.  You really need as many horses as the budget allows in this leg but we favour Huey lewis, Hit The Sky, Flamboyant and Hercules Morse as the best of the rest in this race.

Leg 5     Race 8 [9:09pm]

An even field of rated 40 to 50 trotters from the mobile. Tehoro Tease is probably the pick of them and she could lead again with Robbie Holmes in the sulky. Amabede needs to be driven with a sit but is dangerous with one run at them and Lady Beatrix Bourbon will appreciate the mobile and has drawn ok in Barrier three.


Leg 6     Race 9 [9:34pm] 

The final leg is an even go and there are many chances. One Direction has been racing well and has drawn to race handy and he looks the pick of them. Others needed are Motoring Major who is racing ok and Just Dance who has been disappointing but can lob up when in the right mood.

Leg 1     3,11,12

Leg 2     1,12

Leg 3     1,2,3,4,10

Leg 4     1,4,7,10,13

Leg 5     3,5
