The 6TYO Free For All is the feature of tonight’s exciting eight event Launceston Pacing Club harness racing card.

Stagger Lee has performed in sensational fashion at its two Tasmanian runs at the track, a first-up second to Isaac in its heat of the Maxfield Drilling Easter Cup after doing all the work and kicking clear at the top of the stretch.

In the Cup Final the Maree Caldow-trained Major In Art–Let’s Go Cullen six-year-old gelding ran a gallant third behind the brilliant Harjet and although beaten by 24.3-metres was still putting in strongly on the line.

John Caldow has the advantage of drawing four on the front line tonight with Stagger Lee and will no doubt be looking for a softer run than its punishing Easter Cup Series assignments.

Isaac (pictured), which ran down Stagger Lee on heat night, has drawn in six and will have the services of Rodney Ashwood.

The Juanita McKenzie-trained American Ideal–Twice as Sly eight-year-old gelding put up an unbelievable Heat performance but was disappointing on face-value in the Cup final running eleventh but is more than capable of bouncing back tonight.

The Steve Lukac-trained No Spring Secrets is in search of a winning hat-trick but faces a rise in class and a tricky outside front-line draw.

The Tell All–Spring Ball six-year-old gelding has claimed some massive scalps of late, defeating Scooterwillrev and 2016 Easter Cup winner Riverboat Jasper with paralysing finishing sprints.

The ever consistent Black Centurian, trained by Steven Davis, chased Harjeet home in its Cup Heat before finishing fourth in the Final after being involved in a titanic battle for the placings.

Gareth Rattray will have every chance to position the Jr Mint-Mon Poppy Mary eight-year-old gelding precisely where he wants him after the scratching of Scooterwillrev brings him into gate two behind the Tasracing mobile over the 2200-metre journey.

Michael Smith's All Style Sammy has drawn the pole and will be handled by Rohan Hillier but takes on the silk department while the grand old campaigner Destreos has his sights set on notching up the magical 1ooth career win for Ken Rattray.

Destreos will start from outside the second line from behind the tasracing.com.au mobile but is rated as one of the outsiders in the field of nine at around $33.00 in early markets.

Tonights Launceston Pacing Club meeting commences at 17.38 and can be viewed on live stream service at tasracing.com.au.

Watch Harjeet demoralise the top hopes in tonight's 6TYO Free-For-All in the Maxfield Drilling Easter Cup.
