Team Pearce will saddle-up three runners at today’s Pinjarra meeting.
Pro Mutual will be the first cab off the rank when he contests the Work Clobber Maiden over 1500m in the first event on the seven-race card.
The Proart four-year-old has mixed his form in four starts so far this preparation, however, had no luck when trapped three-wide without cover at his most recent start on August 3.
The gelding has drawn suitably in barrier three today and rates as an each-way chance if he can replicate his effort two starts back when a three-quarter length second to Amber’s Duke.
Aaron Mitchell retains the ride.
Four-year-old geldings Ragno Rosso and Churches will both race first-up in the fourth event on the card, the Kelly’s Hot Water Maiden, over 1200m.
Ragno Rosso, by Discorsi, was tuned up with a sound Lark Hill trial performance when two-and-a-quarter lengths third to Kreuzer on August 14.
The gelding had the first three starts of his race career when last in work, including a Narrogin second-placing to Head Clash.
He’ll also be partnered by Mitchell and will jump from barrier seven in the capacity 16-horse field.
Scandal Keeper gelding Churches will make his race debut in the same event with William Pike set to take the mount.
His first trial on August 7 was disappointing, however, he improved sharply with the addition of blinkers when one-and-a-quarter lengths third to Riders In The Sky in a second trial a week later.
He’s drawn well in barrier two and should be afforded every opportunity with Pike aboard.
Pearce Racing appear to be well-represented by Watto’s Fury and Pushin’ Shapes at Saturday’s Belmont meeting.
