Lisdoonvarna ploughs through W Farm wet

Former New Zealand filly Lisdoonvarna (Super Easy) has continued a promising start to her Australian career with a Warwick Farm win.

Sent out a $6 chance, Lisdoonvarna made the running on a rain-affected track in the TAB Handicap before clearing out to win by 2-3/4 lengths.

Left in her wake to fight out the placings were the runner-up and favourite Savatiano ($3.80) and Star Galaxy ($5) which finished a short neck away third.

After one run in New Zealand for a placing on a wet track in a two-year-old race at Ruakaka last season, Lisdoonvarna started her Australian career with successive wins at Nowra during October before a Hawkesbury defeat.

But she was back on her game at Warwick Farm with Amanda Turner revealing the filly had become too worked up at Hawkesbury.

"She's done a lot in one prep so I hope she can keep doing what she's doing," Turner said.

Jockey Peter Wells, who has ridden Lisdoonvarna in all four runs for Turner and co-trainer Mauro Poletti, says the filly is still learning but progressing well.

"The way she's going, the sky's the limit for her," he said.

Lisdoonvarna was bred by Gordon Cunningham and Hallmark Stud who stand her sire Super Easy. -AAP
