Gregers looked to have victory in the bag but was run down by the pint sized Miracles Of Life who snatched the win on the line. I Love It finished third.

“It is a testament to herself,” co-trainer Paul Snowden said.

“You saw what she did as a two-year-old and now she is doing it again at four.

“She is a really special horse.

“Full credit to the owners because they just said do what you want – if she is up to it and she wants to be there it is all good and well, but if she is not we will pull the pin and she goes to stud and here we are today.

“We will get her home, have a look at her and see what we do from here, but the main thing for her is to keep her fresh and that is how she races the best.”
