Lees Lands Randwick Treble

By Brad Gray

Le Romain looks set for a lucrative autumn campaign after carrying 61kg to victory in the Group Two Southern Cross Stakes while Invincible Gem and Zestful rounded out a treble for Kris Lees.

Le Romain will next tackle the Group One Canterbury Stakes before a likely meeting with Winx awaits him in the Chipping Norton and then onto the Doncaster Mile.

“He's just a really good horse,” Lees said.

“He’s possibly still a touch underrated but I doubt that's going to be the case by the end of the autumn."

Le Romain resumes a winner

Meanwhile, Invincible Gem claimed a valuable stakes win in the Group Three Spring Stakes and although it was a somewhat of a shock to Lees, it was expected by the punters who confidently supported her in betting.

“I was surprised she come up favourite but they are better judges than me,” said Lees.

“She’s a plain little filly but she’s just gone to a whole new level this preparation.

“I said to the owners after the last win I was looking for a reason to give her a break but she just thrived so I said we’ve got to have a throw at the stumps in a stakes race with her. She should be going for a break but it’s hard to spell a filly when they are winning like that.”

Invincible Gem makes it three straight

Zestful completed the hattrick for the Lees stable producing a sharp turn of foot in the Group Three Triscay Stakes, with Jason Collett weaving a path to beat Nancy and Dixie Blossoms.

“I wasn’t confident at the 200m,” Collet confided after the race.

Zestful always sprints well fresh
