2017 Crown Perth-Winterbottom Stks Group 1 December 2 - Ascot

Viddora wins 2017 Crown Perth-Winterbottom Stks Group 1 $1,000,000 at Ascot (WA), 1200m.

Runner-up twice previously at Group One, the Lloyd Kennewell-trained mare Viddora Horseform broke through for a deserved win at the elite level here. She was ridden quietly by Joe Bowditch and settled back in ninth place on the rails before nicely along the inner from the 600m. She switched across heels at the home turn, sprinted quickly to take the lead at the 100m and then went on to score comfortably in an impressive effort. It was also a very good ride by Bowditch.

The Lindsay Park-trained mare Fuhryk Horseform missed the start badly and was last in the 12-horse field on settling. She got along the inner (behind Viddora) from the 700m, stuck to the rails at the home turn and went through to third at the 100m before fighting on well for second in a good performance.


Durendal Horseform had a good trip in third place on the rails, behind the leader (Caipirinha). He moved up to challenge at the 200m and then battled on well for third after seeming to have had every chance.

Profit Street Horseform was fifth on the rails and held on well for (2.8 lengths) fourth.

Favourite Rock Magic Horseform was caught deep and eased to settle in tenth place. He went deep at the home turn and made ground for (3 lengths) fifth without threatening.

Santa Ana Lane Horseform was last nearing the home turn, went widest of all at the home turn and kept running on well for (3.1 lengths) sixth just in advance of Dainty Tess Horseform who battled on well for (3.2 lengths) seventh.

State Solicitor Horseform raced in eighth place and did not look a winning chance at any stage, failing to make any ground to finish in that position, beaten four and a half lengths.
