BIG CHANCE: Terror To Love is a strong chance to win what would be an unprecedented fourth New Zealand Trotting Cup next week.

Terror To Love’s chances of an unprecedented fourth New Zealand Trotting Cup on the trot have not been helped or hampered by his draw.

The Graham and Paul Court trained pacer is looking to become the first horse in history to win four consecutive cup’s at Addington on Tuesday.

Terror To Love and driver Ricky May will start from near the outside of the front row from barrier nine for the Group 1 $700,000 stand start pace over 3200m.

It is not the perfect draw but it is not the worst either.

Importantly for the fourth year running the Courts have avoided the second row.

Terror To Love won last year from barrier seven and won from barrier three in 2012 but more importantly from 10 in 2011 so the coming from out wide will not fear him.

That 2011 victory did come in the hands of Jim Curtin but May has won more cup’s than anyone so his credentials can not be questioned.

The all-important draw for Tuesday’s cup has been kind to the visitors. Australians Seel N Print and For A Reason will start from barrier one and two.

There will likely be some concern for the Seel N Print camp about coming from the inside with the danger of getting caught deep on the pegs – but there will no complaints from the connections of For A Reason who could not have wished for a better spot.

Hands Christian’s barrier 4 is a win for trainers Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen but that is where their luck ended. Their other two runners – Arden Rooney (12) and Adore Me (13) will have to come from the second line.

Four Starzzz Flash has been aided by barrier 3 and speedy beginner Jimmy Johnstone will ping away early from barrier five.

Connections of Tiger Tara 6, and Christen Me 7, will be happy with their draw. Franco Nelson has drawn the outside of the front row which could be an issue given his recent temperamental starts.

Pemberton Shard and Pass Them By will both come from the unruly.

At a glance: 1 Seel N Print, 2 For A Reason, 3 Four Starzzz Flash, 4 Hands Christian, 5 Jimmy Johnstone, 6 Tiger Tara, 7 Christen Me, 8 Pembrook Benny, 9 Terror To Love, 10 Franco Nelson, 11 Franco Ledger, 12 Arden Rooney, 13 Adore Me, 14 Lewy Risk (emergency), 15 Pemberton Shard, 16 Pass Them By.
