One of Tasmania's most exciting harness racing  pacers Jaks Teller will line up in a race at Luxbet Park Hobart tomorrow night with bookmakers predicting the Juanita McKenzie-trained gelding will make it six wins in succession.

Early markets have Jaks Teller at the prohibitive price of $1.30 but to some that represents luxury odds.

At the four-year-old's most recent outing in Hobart two weeks ago he recorded a mile rate of 1.58.8 over 2090 metres and ran home his last half (800m) in a slick 56.3 seconds which was one of the fastest times recorded by a class three horse this season.

While his trainer is trying to keep a lid on the son of Washinton VC's potential it is clear the New Zealand-bred entire has the potential to quickly win his way to open class.

Jaks Teller has drawn gate three in a C3-C4 mobile event over 2090 metres and should he find the lead it is hard to see any of his rivals running him down.

Even if the speedy Ebonyallstarzzz beats him to the front, Jaks Telller's driver Ricky Duggan can either race outside of the leader or push on for the lead, which would benefit Ebonyallstarzzz because she would then enjoy the run of the race on the leader's back which would enhance her chances of filling a place.
