It could be a Pikey Christmas with a number of strong chances tomorrow

Good chances on Galaxy Star, Celebrity Dream, Nordic King & I don't mind Bon Voyage @ $9.5 too  :chin:

Bon Voyage has struck a good field. Pike has got it beat at his last 2 rides on it but with the smaller field and fast pace, he should, surely, be able to navigate a clear path to victory. The toppy is a talent

He also has the resuming Asdserto who goes bloody well. Just hope he doesnt win the last 8-)

I haven't dug that far in yet Wily, just skimmed over the fields.

Bon Voyage gets a weight turn around from last time. Granted the toppy is good but if he gets clear air he'll be close at the finish, $9.50 is worth a shot  :chin:

A few things there Wily, the horse has 19 starts for 1 win, I couldn't take odds on it and in his defense the gap looked like it was there as they swung into the home straight but slammed shut not long after causing him to check.  :shrug:

Gin, He had no need to put the horse in that position in such a small field.
Canít agree that itís win record has anything to do with it. It was odds on because itís last 2 runs have been rippers.
It should have won both and it wasnít the horses fault that it hadnít.
The way it hit the line when clear highlights that it should have won. Even the commentator cried ďstrike me pinkĒ

Surely he knew the despised outsider who was leading would collapse but he still changed direction and drove right up behind it

Simply, he hooked it and provided enough grey to pass master.
If a 4kg Claimer rode it th3 would be hauled before the stewards

Pike rode to his ego and it wasnít necessary  :shutup:

TYCOON LEGEND ĖImpeded from on straightening until being steadied and being taken outwards near the 100m. Rider was questioned in relation to his mount being blocked in the straight and he advised that he was reluctant to shift the gelding outwards prior to the 600m to improve behind a runner that was racing erratically and consequently he elected to attempt to improve through the field but shortly after straightening became impeded when a runner secured a passage in advance of his him causing his mount to become impeded and he was then further held upwhen the runner he was following commenced to tire before eventually getting clear near the 100m. He further added that the gelding is best suited by being ridden in a patient manner and due to circumstances in the race, the gelding had been unable to improve at vital stages when becoming held up. Trainer advised the gelding is best suited when not having to work hard through the early and middle stages andis able to be saved for a late finishing sprint. After considering all of these comments, Stewards took no further action.

Thanks Sobig

Arthur, the point is a 2s on fave should never have been put in that position for it to happen. Very small field and had chances to get in the clear.

Go figure, stewards told me theres no further questions to be asked
2's on and driven up behind bums in an 8 horse field. Today, clear air all the way in a 13 field and wins. Nothing to see :sleep:

I know im bleeting a bit but go and look at the book of rides that day and see the difference in how they were ridden.....if you can be bothered  :lol:

If not, just blackbook Touch of Silver from the last race that day, watch the replay and bear in mind that the trainer said before the race that he didnt think he had the horse was ready and it wasnt a chance. The jock made sure it wasn't. Followed instruction to a T. Well done Pikey ;)

If the bloke rode in Victoria I could reopen the " Sal Perna, I smell a rat" thread  :lol:

you could also look at the facts ?

every horse he rides is unders ?

he is by far the best jockey in WA ?

he rides the horses of the biggest and most high profile stable in WA ?

my advice is to bet around him , ie find the horse that he is not on and therefore overs ?

your choice mate

Itís not the way I bet or do the form rats. Itís not a pure % based approach.
I just wish heíd stop hooking them. Iíd be a lot richer  :lol:
