Miracles Of Life has returned to competitive form for trainers Peter and Paul Snowden this year and is offered a great chance of a second Group 1 crown on Saturday after being allocated the central barrier 7 and confirmed to be partnered by leading hoop Hugh Bowman.

Beginning her career under the guidance of Daniel Clarken, in which she won the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) most notably as a two-year-old in 2013, Miracles Of Life tied the Group 2 Caulfield Sprint (1100m) with Bel Sprinter upon resuming in the 2014 spring but failed to figure when seventh in the Group 3 Mumm Stakes (1100m).

Returning this time for success in the Group 2 Challenge Stakes (1000m) on March 7th, the Not A Single Doubt mare boxed on for a credible third in the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) on March 21st and is sure to relish a step-up in distance and step-back to fillies and mares company this weekend.

Vain Queen has performed well in two Group 1 feature races this time in but will need some luck in running if to return to the winner’s circle in the 2015 Robert Sangster Stakes after drawing the wide and awkward barrier 13.

Finishing outside the first three only a handful of times through her fourteen start career, the Artie Schiller mare ran on for fourth in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) first-up and was unlucky to finish second to Lucky Hussler in the Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) most recently on March 27th.

Surprisingly, trainer Peter Moody has elected not to run classy filly Bring Me The Maid in the 2015 Robert Sangster Stakes however the three-year-old ranks will be represented by talented pair Sabatini and Wawail; who have each tasted stakes success this season.

Returning for consecutive wins in the Group 3 Kevin Hayes Stakes (1200m) and Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes (1400m), Sabatini ran a gallant second despite being blocked for a run in the Group 2 Kewney Stakes (1400m).

While unable to finish in the places when fifth in the Listed Bel Esprit Stakes (1100m) last time out, the Street Cry filly is sure to be boosted by jockey Blake Shinn from gate 10 this weekend.

Wawail is yet to finish outside the first three over her seven career starts and may very well receive the run of the race in the Robert Sangster Stakes from barrier 6.

Running third in her return to black type company in the Group 3 The Vanity (1400m) on February 2st, the Lonhro filly pipped Sabatini on the line in the Kewney Stakes before finishing third in the Listed Alexandra Stakes (1600m) most recently on March 27th.

2013 champion and two-time Group 1 winner Platelet will leave from the rails draw in the 2015 Robert Sangster Stakes while Miss Steele has been charged with overcoming the outside barrier 17.
