Trainer Steve Wolfe is keen to avoid a clash between stable stars Kalahaar and Tiger Pete as they continue their rise to prominence.

Kalahaar atoned for an unlucky first-up run to score his sixth win from nine starts when he beat top filly Darlington Abbey over 1200m at Ascot on Saturday.

Tiger Pete also boasts an imposing record of seven wins from 12 starts and is unbeaten from two starts this campaign.

Wolfe has no big plans for the pair, but is confident they can be major players in Ascot feature races next spring and summer.

His preference to separate the duo could lead to a tilt at the $100,000 Bunbury Stakes (1400m) on March 10 for Kalahaar and Tiger Pete taking aim at the $80,000 Pinjarra Classic (1500m) on March 20.

"I'd like to keep them apart," Wolfe said.

"Kalahaar would be a better Bunbury Stakes horse than Tiger. He'd go better on the softer track.

"We could look at the Cyril Flower for Tiger. He's a good fresh horse, so he could go without a run between that and the Pinjarra Classic.

"Kalahaar pulled up like he hadn't gone around on Saturday.

"He'll be in a similar race in a fortnight and hopefully next spring he measures up to the next level.

"We have no ambitious plans for him right now, but he's a serious horse."

Tiger Pete will start in a 1200m race for 80-plus rated horses at Ascot on Saturday. It is a likely stepping stone to the $80,000 Cyril Flower Stakes (1200m), run on February 23.

A half-sister to Kalahaar, by Medaglia D'Oro, will be offered by Dawson Stud at next month's Magic Millions Perth yearling sale.

Wolfe also has autumn plans for his smart two-year-old Trichologist and three-year-old Sooky Lala.

Trichologist, an impressive 1100m winner at Ascot last month, has been back in work for about three weeks, ahead of a possible crack at the $500,000 Karrakatta Plate (1200m) on April 6.

Sooky Lala, a solid debut winner in a recent Mt Barker maiden, is being considered for the $250,000 WA Oaks (2400m) on April 6.

Her dam, Moodometer, won the Oaks for Wolfe in 2006.

·Eagle Regiment, bred and sold by Sovereign Thoroughbreds, won the Group 1 Centenary Sprint (1000m) at Sha Tin yesterday for the second year in a row.

The son of El Moxie was a $100,000 purchase at the 2009 Magic Millions Perth yearling sale.

·Craig Williams has racked up another big win, steering Ruud Awakening to a comprehensive victory in the Karaka Million at Ellerslie.

Williams piloted the Bernadini filly, prepared by Stephen Marsh, to a slashing three-length victory in yesterday's race, restricted to graduates of the 2012 Karaka sale.
