The 'boy' Pike 

......... rides horses ......mainly good horses ....... does not own or train horses ......... does not agree on the fields he rides against.

The 'boy' rides well.

Surely with your lack of regard for him you should be backing against him or at the very least abstaining from those races.

Don't talk sense JWH, it's easier to bitch and moan about the bloke who rides the most winners with the best striker rate  :bulb:

Pike Market up

3+ @ $1.60
4+ @ $3.50
5+ @ $10.00

He has a full book of rides today -

Race 1: #1 The Front Bar currently $1.75
Race 2: #4 Utgard Loki $11
Race 3: #9 Secret Plan $2.1
Race 4: #12 Dais $5
Race 5: #3 God Has Chosen $1.75
Race 6: #7 Scandolo $5.10
Race 7 #4 Midnight Blue $2.1
Race 8 #15 Graceful Girl $8.50
Race 9 #4 Bogart $7

Races 1,5&7 look locks, races 3&4 he's on 1 of 2 chances in each race, The Winterbottom with an ounce of luck and clean air he can knock off the fav getting up to 1200m, you can't rely on Bogart although he did win first up last time and race 6 is a country qualified type of race, race 2 is a raffle for those who take turns  :dry:

Evan luck you'd have him winning 3 with possibilities up to 6 :chin:

I agree. Should have followed the winner to the outside for an uninterrupted run.

And he backs it up with that insipid effort.
Let’s see the rush to defend that  :lol:

There’s a rule in the book about “giving a horse every chance” :whistle:

All is forgiven and a great price too.  :clap2:

If he had ridden the other two Wily was talking about in same way, he would be in 5 winners.   :lol:

And the great Graceful Girl just showed you why you can’t take that approach

Know there will be plenty who disagree : but I don't think there is a better rider in Australia.  No one  pushes a
horse out to the line quite like Pike. Check out the first race at  Ascot Today. He is the modern day equivalent of Mick Dittman without the stick.

Totally agree mate. I’ve said it numerous times here but doesn’t change 5he fact he’s the master of the slaughter job as well

I totally acknowledge that through my pocket as well . Yes he can slaughter one ; but even Bradman made ducks. However gee I know I would rather be with him , than against him at the business end. I was in Brisbane when Dittman was so dominant and everyone queried why he didn't move to Sydney or Melbourne. Eventually he did and history reflects how good he was. I think the same applies to this bloke. He is also totally dominant in a smaller jurisdiction. Yet I have no doubt he would be top of the tree wherever he plied his trade.

What a lot of you fail to consistently acknowledge is it is Ascot. it's a tight turning track that can see horses stuck inside.

No one here has mentioned Carbery on Cup Night in the Winterbottom, I'd suggest a little watch of the replay  :shutup:

I agree. Should have followed the winner to the outside for an uninterrupted run.

I'm honestly interested to see what you wanted him to do? There was no room under Triple Missile, he would have had to wait, go across it's heels then try and come past it  :shrug:  All Day Session rolled away from the rail pretty much making the decision for him to stay inside, Brooklyn Pier then wobbled out which gave him the rail to head for before it darted back to the fence causing him onto heels. Again we know what we're going to get when we bet & I prefer to be with him than against him as the number of winners he rides and the strike rate he produces backs that up  :yes:

Midnight Blue is a grinding type who really needs to be wound up. He simply needed the gap instead wonder boy Parnham decided to try and smash him back in, probably ruined both their chances by focusing on Pike and not the leader who was off  :wacko:

I’ve heard it all now  :lol:
It was Parnhams,on a $25 chance, at fault because he didn’t let pike out of aa dumb hole he put himself in and Pike didn’t get a clear run  :lol:

I suppose it was Parhams & Peters fault Pike got hopelessly out of his ground. Didn’t improve when every other jock would before the turn and  their fault Pike went in instead of out and got blocked  :lol:

The horse was a lock, as you said, and Pike alone got it beaten :bulb:

And yes a 6 horse  field he should have had Triple Missiles back the whole way, peeled wide and bolted in. Instead of playing the hero and looking for god given runs
He slaughtered it. No ifs no butts

3rd start in a row

Where did I say Parnham should have given him the run  :what: It was pretty clear in the run and on replay that he was focused more on shutting the gap then riding his race   :yes:

As for the 1st one, you're just making stuff up, he was inside Triple Missile the whole race, would you have preferred him to drop back at the 600 so he could get behind him to follow wide  :shrug:

Below from just horse racing.com.

SLAUGHTER OF THE WEEK:

The gap between ‘Good Pike’ and ‘Bad Pike’ is still far too great. He produced a couple of peaches at Ascot on Saturday, but he produced a couple of really ordinary rides with little initiative, namely Secret Plan and Midnight Blue. Can forgive the latter given there is a Perth Cup on the agenda, but the Secret Plan ride, it was all about riding to beat Triple Missile and not winning the race. Nightmare watch.

Yes, he was at its rump and could easily have eased and come wide and won. Instead he lost due to decisions he made
