Lucky Lago Capable of 2015 Hawkesbury Gold Cup Success

April 30th, 2015

Lucky Lago is yet to be confirmed for Saturday’s Group 3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m) however co-trainer Paul Snowden is thrilled with the mare’s condition and is confident she will lay a great account for herself should she be required as first emergency.

Posting three wins and a further four minors through her 16 career starts so far, Lucky Lago has had just three starts for the Snowdens since transferring from the care of John O’Shea following the 2014 Autumn Carnival.

Thrilled with the form and class displayed by the five-year-old over recent weeks, Snowden told Racing Ahead the Encosta De Lago mare relishes the damp conditions that will likely come to being for the 2015 Hawkesbury Gold Cup and is confident of a competitive performance should she gain entry to the feature race.

“She really likes it,” Snowden said.

“Her runs have been pretty good considering she’s had no luck at all her first two runs back.

“A really improved performance would not surprise me at all.”

Stamping her claims as one to watch through her maiden campaign during the 2013 autumn, Lucky Lago ran a close second in the White Balloon Boutique Maiden (1300m) at Hawkesbury before posting commendable victories in the Dunkirk Maiden Plate (1400m) and TAB Iphone App Plate (1600m); the latter by more than seven lengths over classy competition.

Unable to make much of an impact over a 2013 spring campaign geared towards black type features, the mare out of Dizelle returned in the 2014 autumn for credible third place finishes in each of the Group 2 Millie Fox Stakes (1300m) and Group 3 Neville Sellwood Handicap (2000m) most notably over four starts.

Having placed eighth in the TAB Rewards Royal Randwick BM100 (1400m) last time out on April 18th, Lucky Lago is currently available at a quote of $13 for success in 2015 Hawkesbury Gold Cup betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.
