Todays harness racing Pick Six at Winton looks to have a couple of easier legs with some classy Canterbury horses heading down to try to pick up the spoils at Central Southland Raceway.

Canterbury trainer Paul Court again has several horses entered for todays meeting with the two win pacer Stickman a top chance in the fourth leg of Pick Six after an unlucky run last start in Southland last start.

His first starter Mongolian Warrior also has winning claims in the first leg of Pick Six, after some good trial performances in the Canterbury region.

Woodend beach trainer Regan Todd has two horses engaged at the meeting, with Vulcans Star and Ready To Bloom both making the trip South.

Ready To Bloom looks to be one of the bets of the day in the last leg of Pick Six. The Bettor's Delight 4yo warmed up with a sharp trial at Ashburton two weeks ago where he ran second and closed strongly with a sub 27 second quarter. Drawn handily at barrier two he looks to be the early leader and a good anchor in the last leg of the $25,000 Pick Six.

This afternoon the pick six is on Races 3-8 inclusive and guaranteed to $25,000 if struck.

Leg 1     Race 4 [3:51pm]

Some good horses who have trialed well have their first starts today. Vulcan Star, Mongolian Warrior and Charlton Reactor all have shown promise at their trials and workouts and all are good chances in the first leg of Pick Six. Our top chance however is Paddyproudfoot who ran a stunning last half in 54.5 when running second at the recent workouts on this track behind Mighty Flying Art who is also running in this race. Paddyproudfoot still looks green but he might be too fast for this field if he is handy to the leaders on the turn.


Leg 2     Race 5 [4:17pm]

This leg is a very open field of R40 to 55 trotters and take as many as your budget allows. Brian is the TAB favourite and would be a good chance if he steps but he has been making errors in his races. King Cassidy is another who shows ability and also always has support on the tote but is prone to making mistakes.


Leg 3     Race 6 [4:48pm]

Another even field here but we have narrowed it down to four horses in this leg. Double Rainbow gets a better draw to work with and is needed along with Bridesdale Robyn, Iwanadancewitsumbody and Zenola's Art.

Leg 4     Race 7 [5:16pm]

Stickman stands out in this leg after an unlucky run at his previous start. The Croupier ran second to Stickman at his first ever start and he would be a good backup along with Robyns Playboy who ran third to Stickman and The Croupier in the same race.

Leg 5     Race 8 [5:43pm]

An even field of rated R56 and faster pacers made even trickier with the race being from the stand. Ossessione is a quick beginner who could lead here for a long way and he would be our top pick here. Also needed are Bettor Enforce who trialed well recently, Jabali,Benio Ben and Tiziano. 


Leg 6     Race 9 [6:15pm] 

The final leg looks an ideal race for Ready To Bloom and quite happy to make him our Pick Six anchor today.
