Six meetings remain on mainland Tasmania, and many premierships are going down to the line with the battles continuing in Hobart on Friday night.

Kardesler will be out to extend the lead of trainer Juanita McKenzie for the states female trainers title in race four.

The American Ideal gelding is building up an impressive record on the Hobart track, winning four of his 11 starts and has been placed on a further four occasions.

His most recent effort was on Sunday where he chased home Hez The One after racing three-wide over the final 1100 metres, and he finished off well out wide for second to record the quickest individual last half mile of the race in 57.01s.

Kardesler will be driven by Hannah Van Dongen who is locked in a battle for the female driver’s title. Ford is suspended from driving until 27 December.

McKenzie has a one-win lead over Taylor Ford on the female trainer’s title, and she has some chances to add to her title in Hobart.

Ford prepares Say A Prayer who is having her first start in the state after winning one of 16 Victorian starts and Big Bang Raj who was a Hobart winner three starts ago and draws the second row in Friday’s race.

The Drivers title is also a tightly contested affair.

Gareth Rattray leads with 68 wins from Rohan Hillier and Conor Crook on 66.

Ricky Duggan sits in fourth place on 64 wins with Mark Yole rounding out the top five on 62.

Ben Yole has the trainers title in the bag with 176 wins while Taylor Ford leads the Junior Drivers premiership on 31 wins.

Friday night’s Hobart card commences at 18:28 and will be shown on Sky Racing 2 and TasracingTV.
