Well-bred Cambridge Stud filly Lvazou has plenty of ability as seen with her classy victory at Ballarat on Wednesday, however the daughter of Zoustar is not a fan of the gates, which makes training her a challenge. 

She wasn't on her best behaviour at Ballarat, as the stewards require her to head back to the trials for more practice, however when she finally loaded she produced an excellent winning performance with Carleen Hefel aboard. 

"I have done a heap of with her at Julien Welsh's and I am grateful that Danny and the owners allowed me to stay on her for raceday. She has plenty of ability, but she isn't a great fan of the gates," Hefel said post race. 

After taking a time to load, the three-year-old always travelled sweetly for Hefel out deep on the course with cover in the 1200m Class 1 event. 

"She always felt the winner and when we got to the outside she let down strongly to win with a bit in hand. She is a class horse we just need to get her to behave," Hefel added.  

Group 3 placed on debut, the blueblood now has two wins from six starts and O'Brien will be looking to improve on that record, once he is able to get her barrier certificate reinstated.
