Miracles Of Life ($4.80) has experienced notable attention from punters in 2015 Robert Sangster Stakes betting markets and has been backed into favouritism at Ladbrokes.com.au ahead of Vain Queen ($5), Avoid Lightning ($7) and Politeness.

Will Miracles Of Life justify her favouritism and win the 2015 Robert Sangster Stakes or will one of her talented rivals find the line in the clear?

1st

Gregers ($11)

Talented mare Gregers has returned to racing in typically smart form this time, has been confirmed to be partnered by jockey Craig Williams and will leave from barrier 7, and as a result arguably offers punters the best value for money in Robert Sangster betting markets at generous $11. Posting six race wins and as many minors through her 20 competitive starts, the Commands mare is a proven performer over course and distance, and finished third in last year’s edition of the race. Having placed second in the 55 Second Handicap (955m) and third in the Listed Bel Esprit Stakes (1100m) so far this time, all signs seem to point towards a return to the winner’s circle on Saturday.

2nd

Sabatini ($11)

Three-year-old Sabatini has undoubtedly found career-best form to date since returning to racing this time and is weighted particularly well at just 55kgs in the Robert Sangster Stakes. Stamping her claims as one to watch over a debut campaign highlighted by success in the Group 3 Quezette Stakes (1100m) and third in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m), Sabatini returned this time for consecutive wins in the Group 3 Kevin Hayes Stakes (1200m) and Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes (1400m) before a luckless run for second when blocked in the Group 2 Kewney Stakes (1400m). While unable to make up the ground when fifth in the Bel Esprit Stakes last start, Blake Shinn is sure to get the best from the daughter of High Chaparral on Saturday.

3rd

Miracles Of Life ($4.80)

Miracles Of Life began her career in South Australia and is a proven performer on the Morphettville course. Winning the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) for Daniel Clarken most notably in 2013, the Not A Single Doubt mare transferred to the care of Peter and Paul Snowden prior to her spring campaign and has found great form this time in; winning the Group 2 Challenge Stakes (1000m) first-up before boxing on for a commendable third in the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) last time out. Sure to relish the step-up to 1200m, Miracles Of Life will be partnered by leading hoop Hugh Bowman.
