Race 25: Big Six

Following the excitement of the Feature Race last weekend, club members return to Burnie this week for the West Park Grove/Big Six 6 kilometre handicap.

The race takes a circuit course from the Howe St Netball Centre and includes the steep hike up Brickport Road.

With only this and two more races this season, members who have not had a win this year will be keen to break the tape.

Following a top run for third two weeks ago, Kelly Baxter followed up with a great eighth in the Feature Race and looks to be the pick. After being close to winning several times early in the year, she took some time off to freshen up and it has worked a treat.

Evan Brett looks the main danger. He has finished fourth in his last two runs and the tough hill will suit him down to the ground.

Front markers Christine Wright and Mary-Lou Troughton will be hard to catch, while if there is a surprise winner it could be any of Peter Sartori, Lorraine Shepherd or Amie Bramich

Entries close at 9:30 with the race beginning at 10:30. Nominated time events will be held at 9:10.
