Redelva Stakes Ideal for Viddora

Lloyd Kennewell has a big opinion of three-year-old Viddora, and is confident the filly will prove hard to beat in Saturday’s Listed Redelva Stakes (1100m) at Morphettville Racecourse.

Viddora debuted to racing for fifth in the Listed Dequetteville Stakes (1050m) at this race meet last year, but was immediately forced back to the paddock and into surgery to fix a breathing issue.

Kennewell told Racing Ahead he has been thrilled with the daughter of I Am Invincible’s most recent performances and is confident she will line up for the 2016 Redelva Stakes in peak condition.

“She’s a good quality filly,” Kennewell said.

“She had a throat Op early on in her career after her first start and couldn’t breathe, and that has fixed her and she hasn’t had too many problems since.

“She put away a pretty good field the other way.

“Her last two wins have been great. We’ve just found that with these horses that have throat issues, you can’t really hold them up too much.

“She’s a horse that can be forward or back so it’s just a matter of finding her comfort zone and being neutral on her from the start.”

Kennewell has identified the Phillip Stokes-trained Miss Gunpowder as Viddora’s biggest danger in the 2016 Redelva Stakes but believes the conditions of the race should favour his filly.

“It’s a very good quality field, there’s Group winners in their but my filly has raced against eight of them and beaten all eight,” Kennewell said.

“She’s pretty fit and raring to go. She probably had the wood on Miss Gunpowder the other day for fitness, but she was gallant in defeat.

“We’ve got the 54kgs again and hopefully that’s the difference that makes us pretty hard to beat.”

Ending a competitive 2015 campaign seventh in the Group 3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield, Viddora returned this time for third in the Melbourne Signage Concepts BM70 (1000m) on February before a luckless run for sixth in the Seven News Handicap (1200m) a fortnight later.

Returning to winning form with a dominant performance in the Coca Cola BM64 (1050m) at Oakbank, Viddora will be seeking a third-consecutive race win in the Redelva Stakes after taking out the Ubet Handicap (1050m) a fortnight ago.

Ladbrokes.com.au is currently offering the best 2016 Redelva Stakes odds, for which Viddora can be taken at a particularly generous quote of $8 for success.
