LX front derailleur on 26-36-48?

I'm gearing down my Cross Check for touring, and just purchased a Sugino XD600 set with 26-36-48 rings. I have an LX front derailleur left over from a different build. Will it shift okay with a 48t ring? Or would it be better to get a road triple derailleur designed to handle a 53t ring?

I've heard the LX is really only intended to work with 44t outer rings.

Thanks!
