Australian Racing - Racing: Pepper hoping for Dream send-off

Trainer Luke Pepper is hoping to go out a winner at the Sapphire Coast after announcing he will relocate to Scone from Canberra.

The handler has chances to go out on a high, with three-year-old Rebel Dreamer set to contest Race 4, for which she is a 9/2 chance, with Natalie Jarvis' charge Awesome Audrey priced at 19/5 to land the spoils.

Ready to go

The three-year-old filly out of Secrets Sleeping, Rebel Dreamer, has been ready to race for a few weeks now, having initially been aimed at the Wagga Cup carnival five weeks ago only to be scratched from that contest after being drawn wide.

Rebel Dreamer was successful at Canberra in August for her sole career victory so far, seeing off Stratum Pride to secure the purse, while she has trialled since for a second behind All Formidable back in late April.

Pepper remains generally optimistic over Rebel Dreamer's chances but has admitted that the conditions are something of an unknown factor, while ideally she might prefer a longer distance.

"She has been ready to race for a while and I have always had a good opinion of her – the wet tracks is the only unknown," Pepper told Racing NSW.

Draw a favourable factor

"The 1000 metres may be a bit short for her even though she has good speed."

Rebel Dreamer will start from an ideal position, having been drawn to break from three for Louise Day.

The Deepest Secret, Arataki and Black Lavender will also be running on the card for the departing trainer.
