LAMPEDUSA will carry the top weight of 63 kilograms in Saturday’s $12,000 Tumbarumba Cup (1400m).
Experienced Wagga jockey Brad Clark will team up with leading Albury trainer Brett Cavanough on Lampedusa in the Tumbarumba Bowling Club & Aristocrat Tumbarumba Cup Benchmark 70 Handicap.
Lampedusa has not raced since finishing down the track in the $55,000 Snake Gully Cup (1400m) at Gundagai last November.
The Cup has attracted a full field of eight plus two emergencies.
Lampedusa is drawn in gate six, one inside of stablemate Via Torrone.
Wagga apprentice Nick Heywood will ride the Brian Cox-trained Wilscot, who will carry 59.5kg.
