Fresh from their blistering one-two finish in yesterday's Trotting Free For All, Tough Monarch and McLovin have drawn front row starts in Friday's Airpark Canterbury Dominion.

The $300,000 Group 1 - the richest trot race in Australasia - will launch from the standing start at 2.38pm ADST, with Tough Monarch drawing gate six and McLovin gate 10, but with two emergencies on their inside.

McLovin's trainer Andy Gath told Sky Racing they "were really proud of him and he's pulled up really good, so we are looking forward to Friday now".

"You travel this far and you always want your horse to perform well and he performed really well," Gath said. "The standing start over two-mile is completely different to what we had today, so far to us it looks like he's pulled up well, he'll be raring to go on Friday."

Leading local fancies Marcoola (gate one) and Oscar Bonavena (gate 17) emerged at opposite ends of the draw, with the latter off the unruly.

Friday's card at Addington also includes the Woodlands NZ Pacing Free For All, which will feature Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen's trio Cruz Bromac (gate 6), Spankem (gate 7) and Thefixer (gate 9), who are coming off respective first, second and fifth placings in yesterday's New Zealand Trotting Cup.
