Viddora set to recover in time for 2018 The Goodwood

Group 1 winning mare Viddora is expected to recover in time from a minor injury scare to be fit to take her place in the 2018 Group 1 $1m Darley Goodwood (1200m) at Morphettville on Saturday.

Trainer Lloyd Kennewell was forced to scratch Viddora from the Group 1 $1m Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville on May 5 on race morning after discovering swelling in one of the mare’s hind tendons.

But the prominent Morphettville trainer is happy with the mare’s recovery rate and expects her to line up in the $1m sprint on the weekend after scans of the injured tendon on Friday morning came up clean and enabled Viddora to return to the training tracks on Saturday morning.

“I think we’re back on track,’’ Kennewell told The Advertiser.

“She’s had a really good week on the training track,’’ he said.

“She galloped really well on the grass.’’

“She hasn’t really missed a lot of work and is best a month between runs.

“She’ll have her final piece of work on Tuesday morning, it will be a solid gallop.

“It’s something we always do on a Tuesday leading in.’’

Viddora claimed her first Group 1 trophy with a win in the Group 1 $1m Crown Perth-Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) at Ascot during the 2017 Perth Summer Carnival and then went to the Good Coast in Queensland to win the $1m Magic Millions Snippets (1200m) at in January.

The I Am Invincible mare then resumed from a break for a first up second to Dainty Tess in the Group 3 $120,000 Hughes Limousines R N Irwin Stakes (1100m) at Morphettville on April 21.

The final field for the 2018 Goodwood will be released Tuesday, May 15.

Betting for The Goodwood at Ladbrokes.com.au has Vega Magic as the dominant $2.40 favourite ahead of the Anthony Freedman trained Santa Ana Lane and Viddora who share the second line of betting at $11 while Secret Agenda is marked at $13 alongside of Darren Weir’s Voodoo Lad.
