Peppijack is Scott Embry's Crown Perth Opening Day best bet

Punting Form race reports: Saturday 12 October

Peppijack is TABtouch blog columnist Scott Embry's best bet at Ascot Racecourse on Crown Perth Opening Day and, according to the Punting Form race report on Saturday's Crown Sports Bar Handicap, the James Grieve-trained, Troy Turner-ridden gelding boasts the best two-year performance rating of the capacity field.

Belmont Park is Peppijack's favourite hunting ground and it was at Perth Racing's secondary venue he posted not only his best recent display but also his excellent first-up effort. Peppijack resumed without a trial but Grieve had him ready to go in what was a higher graded 1,400 metres event three weeks ago. Down in class, Peppijack maps as getting the run of Saturday's race and Embry thinks he can win at Ascot Racecourse for the first time on his 10th appearance at the facility.
