Team Hawkes-trained London Lolly will look to keep the good times going for her trainers this weekend in the Kindergarten Stakes 2014 following the success of her fellow two-year-old stablemate Mossfun in the Golden Slipper.

Hall of Famer John Hawkes, who now trains in partnership with his sons Michael and Wayne, celebrated his third win in the world’s richest juveniles’ race on Saturday when Mossfun upset the favourite Earthquake in the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m).

Now attention turns to another young filly in the stables, London Lolly, with the daughter of Charge Forward nominated for the $200,000 Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes (1100m) this weekend.

One of nine Group races on the Doncaster Mile Day program, this year’s Kindergarten Stakes nominations feature 17 hopefuls.

Many are stepping out under race conditions for the first time too with just 10 of the entries having had a previous start.

Of those one of the top picks looks to be London Lolly who comes off back-to-back Black Type wins.

Her first was in the Listed St Albans Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on March 14.

Then a fortnight later she was in Adelaide taking out the Group 2 Breeders’ Stakes (1200m) by and easy one and a half lengths at Morphettville.

Also coming off a win are the likes of I Am Snippety who won by six and a half at Wellington on March 23, the James & Bart Cummings-trained Hallowed Crown who on their debut at Randwick’s Kensington track on March 26 and Nicconi filly Loved Up (Wagga Riverside).

Other runners to have won a race previously are the John Ramsey-trained Unknown Destiny won two on the trot before their last start 10th to subsequent Slipper third placegetter Bring Me The Maid in the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes and Gai Waterhouse’s resuming Stratum filly Echo Gal.

Echo Gal hasn’t raced since her 10th to Unencumbered in the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic at the start of January, but she did win a Randwick trial over 1050m on March 17 by a good margin leading up to her return here.

Waterhouse has also nominated for her Not A Single Doubt filly Donelle who caught the eye when fourth, one and a quarter lengths off the winner in the Magic Night in the wet at Rosehill on March 29.

Last year Safeguard won the Kindergarten for Peter Snowden and this year he’ll look for another win with unraced Medaglia D’Oro filly Shaumari.

Snowden, who leaves his partnership with Darley at the end of the autumn, is also after a consolation prize after losing the Slipper with the short-priced fancy Earthquake.
