After being beaten six lengths at his last start over 1600m in what appears as though it was a strong form race, Peppi La Few dropped back to a more suitable 1400m class 1 at the Sunshine Coast to record his second win this campaign.

In the small seven horse field Peppi La Few was a little slow away again before mustering good speed to settle in fifth position for jockey Ryan Wiggins around four lengths from the leader.

There were no real changes in running positions for the first 1000 metres until Wiggins moved out four wide on Peppi La Few as they rounded the home turn. 

Although Peppi wanted to lay in Wiggins was aware of Peppi’s habit and rode with the whip in the right hand to assist in keeping him straight.

Even though Peppi La Few took a while to get on top of the opposition in the end he looked to win like a short $2.10 favourite should in setting a new class record.

Congratulations to all the owners, Mr M A McLean, Mr A Stephenson, Mr C J Wessel, Just Fun Racing, Emirates Park, Miss J Brosnan, Mr P J Daniel, Mr I W Weigh, Mr K J Brosnan, Mr S McLean, Mr P Webster, Miss D Aram & Mr R S Heritage.

On this occasion Peppi La Few was strapped by Archer Parks number one strapper Grant Cooper.
