Terror To Love - Spot on for the Hunter Cup

Harness racing can be very cruel at times with luck playing its part but leading reinsman Ricky May is still shaking his head after his drive Terror To Love yet again drew a bad marble when the Hunter Cup draw was made on Tuesday night.

Fresh off drawing the outside of the gate in the Victoria Cup, Terror To Love drew barrier thirteen for the 3280 metres Hunter Cup on Saturday but Ricky is confident that the horse can play a part.

"You are dictated to  a certain extent by what happens in front of you when you draw the the second line but we must be due a change of luck," Ricky said.

Restrained off the gate by Ricky last week, Terror To Love settled last and was still there as they turned for home before making ground stylishly late in the piece.

Ricky toyed with the idea of going forward last week before deciding to go back but felt there would be plenty of mid race pressure which of course never eventuated.

This week is a lot more to Terroe To Love's liking with the standing start and the 3280 metres right up his alley and Ricky just hopes to avoid any problems early in the piece.

 Even though he finished ninth last week Ricky was impressed with Terror To Love.

" He felt absolutely super last week, as good as he has ever felt and that has given me a lot of confidence heading into this weeks race."

" Graham  has told me he is as good as he can get him so I give him a huge chance."

" He has already proven this season that he can do a lot of work and still win so the draw is not as bad as it seems," Ricky said.

With his great standing start record coupled with his record over 3200 metres in New Zealand, you take Terror To Love lightly on Saturday night at your peril.

PS: When contacted today for his best drive over the weekend for the weekly ringaround, Ricky quickly nominated Terror To Love as his best drive, draw and all.
