After saddling-up Policiere to her second successive victory at Ascot on Saturday, co-trainers Daniel and Ben Pearce prepared a winning double at Bunbury on Sunday.

Stablemates Hitchinrail and Speedy Miss both saluted in their respective races, with Hitchinrail breaking his maiden status in the opening event of the day, the Welcome 2021 Maiden (1420m).

Ridden by Joseph Azzopardi, the Hinchinbrook four-year-old started on the third line of betting at $6 and settled behind the leader of the four-horse field in running.

The gelding stuck to the inside on straightening and hit the front at the 250m mark before lifting over the final stages to fend off Sprinsure Lad ($1.95) by a neck.

Rank outsider Kaylani ($21) finished a further three lengths away in third place, with Noble Scot ($2.50) whipping them in.

Later in the day, Demerit mare Speedy Miss ($6) scored her first win of her campaign when taking out the Amelia Park Handicap (1420m).

The consistent five-year-old was positioned three-back on the fence by jockey Jade McNaught before navigating a clear passage in the straight and finishing strongly to defeat Living The Dream ($7.50) by a long-neck.

Zetorio ($26) ran a fast-finishing third a further neck away.

Speedy Miss has now recorded five wins, seven placings 18 top-five finishes from her 25 starts to date, taking her total earnings past $100,000.

The Pearce stable’s only other runner on the day, Worth A Risk, finished fourth to Speedy Miss.
