Perth's Peters Pike Pairing Popular Punters' Picks
Prominent Perth owner and breeder Bob Peters will go to bed tonight with a warranted sense of anticpation. The presence of his pink silks with white cross bands in any race held in WA often mean the opposition is running for place prizemoney only. While State Solicitor (see below) is the chalk for tomorrow's Gr1 Winterbottom Stakes, Peters has another three runners on the card, and each of them has genuine winning prospects. Royal Star and La Mouline justifiably dominate the market for Race 2, with gun jockey William Pike opting to ride the former despite being aboard the latter for each of his last three wins. Pike also has the ride on odds-on Race 3 favourite Bold Success before the owner and jockey combine again in the day's feature event. The trio of runners is prepared by trainers Grant and Alana Williams.
