In-form Bunbury mare Snow Blossom will try to continue her hot streak when trainer Brent Larsson takes her to Ascot next week.

The five-year-old has won her past three races at Bunbury since Larsson took over her training duties from Gordon Spowart last year.

Under Larsson’s guidance, Snow Blossom has placed in all eight races – with three wins, three seconds and two thirds.

Larsson admitted he did not imagine Snow Blossom could get on this kind of roll.

“She is a really big mare, so I thought we would just give her a go,” he said.

Larsson said there was no longer any races in Bunbury for her.

“I will probably run her in Perth next Wednesday,” he said.

“There is just nothing else left for her here.”

Larsson said 1200m was Snow Blossom’s best distance.

“She has raced over the 1400m and done quite well, but I think the 1200m is her go,” he said.

“Her last three runs she has been running really well, it doesn’t matter where she has been in the race.

“She has always hit the line well.

“It just happens that the last three have been really good.”

Larsson believes Snow Blossom could make it onto a Saturday race card at Ascot in the near future.

“You do not know until you try them,” he said.

“We will just try to win a couple in town with her and take it from there.”
