Star WA jockey William Pike has been booked to ride a former WA galloper in Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup at Flemington.
William Pike who has been flying in WA this season will be aboard the Darren Weir trained Real Love if she is to line-up in the race.
Real Love is currently guaranteed a spot in the Melbourne Cup Field however she will run in Saturday’s Lexus Stakes before a final decision will be made.
Pike rode Real Love to six wins in WA before the mare was transferred to Weir’s Victorian stable earlier this year.
