Best From The West: Ascot – 10th December 2022

The final day of the Pinnacles carnival has the newly named Gold Rush as the rich prize at Ascot.

In the big race there is a horse who absolutely flies second up off any type of break. That is Kissonallforcheeks and she is ready to rip over the 1400m.

She was fantastic in the Winterbottom coming from near last and was only nabbed the last 0 by the flying Paulele.

Well supported that day, there was expectation of a top effort and she didn't disappoint.

The mare has run some superb races in these big Perth events (being an old WA horse) but also over East being a G2 winner in Melbourne. That was in the Let's Elope second up at 1400m.

Just looking for her to sit closer from a better gate and then she can let rip around the corner.

Earlier in the day, we're happy to think William Pike can get back on the winning cycle with Alsephina chasing four in a row.

The 4yo has been so strong late in her races and we saw just that three weeks back in Ratings 66+ event.

If anything, she may well be better suited over the mile now and is unbeaten on this track as well.

Can't see Pike letting her flop out and be back near last but midfield would be a lovely position here.
