Petite One winning at Addington

Petite One is a good chance tonight at Addington to give Colin DeFilippi the win he needs to notch up his 2000 harness racing winning drives. 

The Greg and Nina Hope trained trotting mare goes around in the fifth leg of pick six against some handy opposition and starts from the back mark of 30m along with last start winner Zachary Binx. 

It is not easy to win at Addington from a long handicap but the small field will aid her chances and she looks to be one of the leading hopes in that leg of pick six.

Colin has several other chances to get to his 2000 wins tonight as he has a drive in most of the races on the nine race card.

Trainer Michael House has a big team in tonight and Colin is driving the majority of them.

Cuddly Jess would be the best of his drives on paper, as she is a five race winner and the highest rated trotter in the second leg of pick six. Three of her five wins have been from behind the mobile and the seven year old Sundon mare will appreciate the mobile start tonight.

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


Leg 1     Race 5 [6:44pm]

Upset winner Leigh Major has drawn badly again in tonights race but has the class to overcome the draw. TAB favourite Hayley Nicole is in good form and is also a great winning chance. Missinmemate was good last start and is another worth including in the first leg.

Leg 2     Race 6 [7:16pm]

There look to be four clear winning chances in the second leg of pick six.  Cuddly Jess is the top chance along with Medusa who was good running home late last start. Idle Moose has been freshened for this and is also needed and Rum In The Sun is also racing well.


Leg 3     Race 7 [7:45pm]

Amazon Lily does not have a great record from a stand but looks to be almost an anchor if she can step away and get handy. 

Leg 4     Race 8 [8:15pm]

The first starters hold the key in this race, with all three first starters showing good form at the trials and workouts. Zion Bromac has drawn wide but comes out of the powerful Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen stable so has to the top chance here. Karmic Way was also good at his last workout runing home well. Rockaball is the other first starter that has shown promise at the trials.

Leg 5     Race 9 [8:44pm]

A tricky field of rated 60 and faster trotters. The two back markers Petite One and Zachary Binx look to be the main chances along with Sundons Flyer and Donegal Bettergretch


Leg 6     Race 10 [9:14pm] 

The final leg is an even go and there are many chances. Gunpowder has been racing well and has drawn to race handy. Others needed are smart 3yo Alta Shelby, Franco Saxon, For The Corz, Martin John and Admiral.
