Best From The West: Pinjarra/Ascot – New Year’s Eve/Day 2022/23

Well Saturday racing is at Pinjarra this week with Perth Cup day on Sunday at Ascot.

In that Perth Cup, there is a great history in this race and with these colours and so we're going to follow that in again via Truly Inspired.

He is the younger brother of the sadly departed Truly Great who won a Kingston Town and was a half head off winning this very race two years back.

This gelding has been making strides through the lower ratings ranks then stepped up to black type for the first time when coming from last to win the ATA Stakes last week.

Horses peaking at the right time is such a trait of staying racing and when you carry the pink and white cross, it lifts you in a Perth Cup.

We've got W Pike on for good measure. From the gate you'd expect he'll be snagged early, get moving from the half mile tracking other main hopes and will be strong late.

Happy to back him at the price but late on New Year's Day, when the jungle juice has set punters may simply land on a W Pike plunge.

The day before they run at Pinjarra and the Mandurah Cup is the feature. There are a few hopes but happy again to side with the famous colours as Real Danger bounces off a confidence building victory.

She had been very consistent working through the grades before stepping back to the 7 f a week ago.

Sitting on the pace, she began to draw clear late on despite being easy in the betting. The claim makes her well placed once again from a lovely draw.

Also keep an eye on Rockstar Status from the race before chasing back to back wins from a spell. These mares are gold when in form.
