Luke Pepper Has Viceroy On Target For Canterbury

Canberra trainer Luke Pepper says sprinter Viceroy is right on his game for Friday night’s BM 70 at Canterbury.

Viceroy will be peaking off a couple of unlucky Saturday city runs with Tye Angland riding off a low draw.

Viceroy relishes Canterbury having won 2/3 at the venue including first up three runs back.

Pepper says Viceroy goes into the race mentally and physically on-song thanks to a mixture of swimming, jumping and regular track work at Thoroughbred Park.

Pepper says the horse is good natured, a pleasure to train and enjoys racing.

Viceroy will likely spell after the Canterbury race and then be readied for the Wagga Town Plate in May.

Meanwhile, Canberra trainer Nick Olive was delighted with Single Gaze's workout at Caulfield on Wednesday.

Olive believes the Caulfield Cup runner up is going better than this stage in the spring but says she will need her first-up run in the CF Orr Stakes.
