IT was an advantage to be drawn at 6am as the first two riders on Wednesday scored 91 to take the equal lead in the Black Toyota Warwick Gold Cup campdraft.

Later in the morning, Goondiwindi rider Terry Hall scored 92 on his stallion Hazelwood Conman to become outright leader.

After the first 466 runs, he was one ahead of five riders.

Hall said it was surprising to see two high scores early in the morning.

"It was cool at 6am, cattle don't always work well early," he said.

The early bird stars with 91 were Heyfield (Victoria) rider Peter Boulton riding Inprint and Katherine (NT) rider Ben Tapp on Cool Dust.
