Only Four Rivals For Lava Man

Thursday, 6th July 2006

As crack former $50,000 claimer Lava Man (Slew City Slew-Li'l Ms. Leonard, by Nostalgia's Star) looks to become just the second repeat winner of Saturday's Gr1 Hollywood Gold Cup, even the large weight assigned to him has not been enough to tempt many rivals to take him on over the 11/4 miles. According to bloodhorse.com, the 5YO gelding is set to carry 124 pounds (56.5kg) as he attempts to add to his 2006 record which is 4 wins from as many starts (two at Gr1 level) and earnings of US$1.8 million. An odds-on favourite, Lava Man will be piloted by his regular rider Corey Nakatani.
