Viddora can pay her way in Perth

After a problem-free passage from start to finish, smart sprinter Viddora is settling into life in Perth ahead of the Winterbottom Stakes on Saturday week.

ViddoraWe thought she was brilliant last year when winning this and according to her trainer Lloyd Kennewell she is in the right shape for her attempt to go back-to-back.

“She enjoys her travelling and she knows when she’s going on a holiday,” Kennewell said. “She got on the plane, did everything right and she got there and licked the bin clean. I couldn’t be happier with her.”

“There’s not much change. She was set for it last year and she’s been set for it this year,” he said. “She’s ticked every box that we want so far.

You’re just crossing the days off the calendar to make sure she’s sound every day before she gets to the races and nothing goes wrong.

“Everything is fine at the moment. She will have a good hit-out next week and she’s raring to go.”

Viddora was sorely tested on a heavy track in the $13 million Everest at Randwick last month finishing way down the field but we aren't preparing to be disapointed again and neither is Kennewell.

“I think the form has been really solid out of it since,” he said. “Most of the horses have been pretty resilient out of the race that didn’t handle the track because the track was absolutely bottomless. “I would expect that she would be pretty resilient herself and she showed at the (Cranbourne) trials the other day that she was in good order.

Winner of the Moir Stakes, Viddora has been installed as the $3.20 favourite for the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes which runs at Ascot on Saturday 1st December.
