Pikey wants to come east and ride in the big pond.
Best he stay over there after yesterday's Display.
Diabolically bad

He's always said he's happy in the west, pottering around his farm with the kids  :chin:

Outside of Royal Star, I can't see what else would even remotely qualify as 'diabolical'?

Sometimes I reckon you'd only be happy Wily when he rides 8/8 even if he only has 6 rides on the day!   :lol:

You're probably right gin  :lol:

I thought his rides on Bold Success, Fairtrusive, Penalty Point & State Solicitor were his typical "formula" rides. He was insipid and showed no incentive to put the horses into the races when they needed to

In saying that, I think he lifted the River to a win, that's his strength in my mind, not his tactical nous

I heard his say it a fair bit lately. Seems to be changing his mind

" the 31-year-old, who grew up 558km east of Perth in the small town of Coolgardie, admits he does harbour ambitions to boot home a winner in Melbourne before he one day hangs up the saddle.

“Before my career is done I want to get over there [to Melbourne] and make sure I at least ride one metro winner,” Pike said.

“I’ve been over there a couple of times and haven’t really done that well.

“[But] I’m just happy riding as many winners as I can and enjoying the opportunities that I’m getting … I’m just enjoying being on top because I know it doesn’t last forever.”

If the day ever comes that Pike does ride a winner in Melbourne, it’s sure to be a popular one as his reputation for helping battling eastern-state punters “get out” at the end of a tough day has become widespread.

D Oliver & D Lane have both moved to Melbourne and achieved success, whereas C Parnham, who is second on the Perth premiership behind Pike with 44% of Pike's wins, tried and went back West with his tail between his legs. Pike is a much better rider than Parnham, but whether he is as good as the other two I am unsure, as both made the move East before being top dogs in the West.
Could be Pike is a big fish in a small pool.

Put any other top 5 jock in Perth on the Peters horses and they would win more races.

When he was out injured they certainly didn't.

Widely reported it's how Peters likes his horses ridden. Plenty of times I don't agree with it but you pretty much know what you are going to get before backing them. Remember the bloke with the gold makes the rules.

I think he's been exposed already. Peters runners are batting at 100% win rate since Pikes slaughter jobs and suspension last week

You need to get another maths teacher I think wily.

As far as I know 3 runners yesterday for 1 win is not 100%

Welcome back Pikey. Glad to see you've learnt from Parnham whilst you were on the sidelines. Sailing down the outside and no moronic "formula" rides
Mind you it's early days  :lol:

First three winners.

His mount in the 4th race is the $4.60 fixed price second favourite - $1.50 on the NSW TAB at the moment, $1.40 on Tatts   :lol:

I took a system 4 on the first 5 races. The big win eludes me given he just got rolled. Hope the 5th race salutes to give me some return :x:

If it wasn't for his slaughter job on Regal Moon I'd be alive with 1,5 & 7 in the quaddy :mad:

Thankfully his ride on Press the Petal helped me win on Prying Tom :shutup:

The good news is I'll forgive Maddy Brown for getting beat. She's very cute :love:
