Spirit Song has won seven of her 26 race starts and has earned more than $545,000 in prize money.

The Invincible Spirit mare placed sixth in the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes first-up last month and will be out to find her form in the 2013 Schweppervescence Stakes.

Spirit Song is trained by Aaron Purcell at Warnambool and will be having just her second run at Flemington this weekend.

Unfortunately her Flemington record is not ideal, with her only other run resulting in a last placing in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes in November, 2012.

Despite having no Flemington wins to her name, Spirit Song has consistently performed at Group level and will be looking to post her first win of the year in the 2013 Schweppervescence Stakes.

Hi Belle is also nominated for the 2013 Schweppervescence Stakes this Saturday.

The Clangalang mare, who is also nominated for the seemingly tougher 2013 Blamey Stakes on the same day, will be second up in the race.

She placed third in the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes last start and will be looking to go two better in the 2013 Schweppervescence Stakes.
