Viddora will need plenty of luck from inside barrier in 2018 Robert Sangster Stakes

Local hope Viddora will need plenty of luck from the inside barrier in the Group 1 $1m Robert Sangster Stakes 2018 (1200m) at Morphettville on Saturday.

Viddora’s pattern of racing is to settle in the second half of the field and trainer Lloyd Kennewell said that the mare would need her fair share of luck no matter where she had drawn in the eighteen horse field.

“I’d rather draw one than eighteen,’’ Kennewell told The Advertiser.

“You don’t choose barriers, they choose you. I don’t really read to much into them.

“At the end of the day it’s a number; one, eighteen, six or twelve, she’s still going to need her share of luck.’’

Regular rider Joe Bowditch knows the mare well and has ridden for in most of her twenty-five starts including a come from behind win in the Group 1 $1m Crown Perth-Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) at Ascot during the 2017 Perth Summer Carnival and a near last to first win in the $1m Magic Millions Snippets (1200m) at the Gold Coast in January.

Bowditch rode for luck again last start when Viddora had to weave her way through the field for a first up second to Robert Sangster Stakes rival Dainty Tess in the Group 3 $120,000 Hughes Limousines R N Irwin Stakes (1100m) at Morphettville on April 21.

Viddora has been installed the early favourite for the Robert Sangster Stakes at $4.40 with Ladbrokes.com.au ahead of the Darren Weir trained Quilista at $6 and Andrew Noblet’s Super Cash at $7.50.

The front running Quilista has drawn perfectly at barrier two and Damian Lane will have no trouble bouncing the mare straight to the front and give the rest of the field plenty to chase.
