Kris Lees will give Lucia Valentia the opportunity to perform on the biggest stage during the spring carnival following a sensational win first-up in the Tramway Stakes at Royal Randwick, reports Racing Network.

The Vinery Stud Stakes winner was near last topping the rise before unleashing an unbelievable turn of foot to gun down Tiger Tees with Toydini catching the eye for third.

"She’s nominated for all the big races. It’s a heavy track today so we’ll just see where we end up," Lees said. “She’ll probably go to the George Main (Stakes) in two weeks time.

“If she goes well enough in that we’ll probably go to the Turnbull Stakes and then decide whether we go to a Caulfield Cup or a Cox Plate.

“I thought she’d run very well. It’s good to see her back and hit the line. It’s pretty exciting. I want to see her do it again on dry ground and there’s no reason why she won’t."

Lucia Valentina firmed from $12 to $8 with on course bookmakers while favourite Weary ($3.80) disappointed again.

“Lucky it is raining as she was on fire in the last 400 metres. She flew. She’s shown that she loves the ground. That was a good first-up run after the break," said winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy.

“At the 600 metres or the 500-metre mark she was in between a couple of runners and took a bad step in a bad portion of the track and I was a bit worried after that.

"But she was able to rally and balance and when in clear going she was away and I knew she was going to win then.

"She’s a smart little mare that has come back in good order. She’s going to feature in some good races over further than that."
