Adam Durrant is poised to reclaim the outright lead in the Perth Trainer’s premiership at Ascot on Wednesday.

Durrant, tied on 30 wins with Grant Williams, has sound claims with last-start winners Quite Regal and Dark Rhythmn.
Debutant Undeterred, stable newcomer, Hue And Cry, Brackets, who returns from a long spell and Great Odyssey, also have claims.

Brackets, a winner at two of three starts, resumes after a 371 day absence in the Crown Perth Handicap (1000m).

Williams will pin his faith in Dark Love, his lone starter for the meeting, who progresses after winning a Bunbury maiden.

Only injury or bad luck can halt the irrepressible William Pike in claiming an eighth Jockey’s premiership title.
The 29-year-old hoop has booted home 55 winners, more than double his next rival, Lucy Warwick.
Pike, who is on track to surpass a career-high 91 wins, has six rides on Wednesday, headed by Dark Love and Quite Regal.
