Rain To Help Lucia Valentina

Wednesday, 19th October 2016

Meanwhile, Lucia Valentina had her final Cox Plate hit-out when galloping at Sandown yesterday morning. The three-time Gr1 winner, who is coming off a third place finish behind Black Heart Bart in the Gr1 Underwood Stakes (1800m), has drawn barrier 9 in the field of 10 for Saturday's $3 million weight-for-age feature. "It doesn't make much of a difference for her, we will be going back anyway, hoping there is speed on and she can finish off strongly," trainer Kris Lees told racing.com. Lees said any rain would enhance Lucia Valentina's prospects on Saturday. "She worked on a wet track at Sandown this morning and she was very sharp," he said. "It would be nice if the Cox Plate was on that type of ground."
