Top Perth jockey Peter Hall is set to take on the hot pot Delicacy when he teams up with Real Love in the Group 2 $250,000 C.B. Cox Stakes (2100m) at Ascot on Saturday.

The two Bob Peters owned mares are set to clash again after Delicacy with Hall in the saddle was beaten a whisker by stablemate Perfect Reflection who was ridden by Perth’s leading jockey William Pike in the Group 1 $1m Kingston Town Classic (1800m) at Ascot on December 5.

Real Love came in eighth in the Kingston Town Classic with Chris Parhnam in the saddle, beaten ten and a quarter lengths.

Pike is the number one rider for Peters and was always going to choose the ride on Delicacy in the C.B. Cox Stakes and Hall is content to take over the reins in Real Love for the first time.

“It was always going to happen,” Hall told The West Australian.

“He (Pike) would have been mad if he didn’t choose Delicacy.

“It’s exciting to be riding Real Love in a race for the first time.”

The Adam Durrant trained Real Love took out the 2015 Group 2 $500,000 Golden River Developments Perth Cup (2400m) at Ascot on January 1 and the step up the 2100m of the C. B. Cox Stakes will suit her at this stage of her preparation as she heads towards another Perth Cup in just over a fortnight’s time.

But the 2100m this week will also suit the Grant Williams trained Delicacy who has five wins at 2000m and beyond, including two wins at Group 1 level in the $400,000 Schweppes Oaks (registered as Australasian Oaks) (2000m) and in the $500,000 South Australian Derby (2500m) at Morphettville during the Adelaide Autumn Carnival.

“She looks like she needs 2000m-plus to show her best,” Hall said.

“Danielle Conroy rides her in all her work, but I galloped her this morning and she’s going along really well.”

Hall is giving Real Love a great chance of causing an upset over the short priced favourite but naturally thinks that Delicacy will be hard to beat.

“She’s got such a brilliant turn of foot,” Hall said.

“We nearly pinched a Group 1 (Kingston Town Classic) rom barrier 16.”

Both mares will be wearing Peters’ cerise and white crossed sashes and will jump from adjacent barriers with Real Love drawing gate five and Delicacy to jump from gate six.

In early markets for the C.B. Cox Stakes, Delicacy is the odds on favourite at $1.75 ahead of Real Love at $4.60, Black Hart Bart at $11 and Balmont Girl at $12.

    Howdy, I do think your blog could possibly be having browser compatibility problems.
    Whenever I look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however,
    if opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues.
    I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Apart
    from that, great site!
