The Luke Pepper-trained Appoint Percy will fly the Canberra flag in tomorrow’s Provincial Championships Qualifier at Newcastle.
Appoint Percy had a FU hit-out at Wagga and then ran a creditable fourth in the Qualifier at Rosehill on Golden Slipper day.
“It was the heaviest track I have ever seen”, Pepper says. “He’d come off a long layoff and I couldn’t have him any better order for Newcastle.
“Tommy Berry was impressed with the Rosehill run and asked to stick with him and the horse will appreciate a better surface.”
