AN ideal front-row draw could be the key to Paint The Wind making it back-to-back harness racing  wins at the Luxbet Racing Centre in Launceston on Sunday night.

Paint The Wind has been a model of consistency this time in with the Rohan Hadley-trained gelding having been placed four times before his last-start victory in a C1-C2 event over 2200 metres.

The lightly raced four-year-old has won four and been placed five times from only 17 outings and while there appears to be plenty of natural speed in the race and all of it on the front line he should be able to land in a top spot soon after the start.

These Days (5) and Ebonyallstarzzz (6) have speed to burn, especially Ebonyallstarzzz, so if her driver Mark Yole decides to push for the lead and These Days goes forward it could leave Paint The Wind to get a perfect sit in the one-out line.

Our Percius (1) was placed two starts back and wasn't far away last time so from gate one he also could get a charmed run but he will need to show some early speed to retain a spot behind the leader, otherwise he will be buried back in the field.

The most logical trifecta is to take 3,5,6 for first and second and include Our Percius (1) for third.
