2014 G.H. Mumm Stakes Attracts Full Field

The Group 3 G.H. Mumm Stakes (1100m) is one of three black type races on at Flemington Racecourse on Thursday, as part of Crown Oaks Day – or Ladies Day as it’s commonly called.

The sprint race for four-years-old and up mares has attracted a maximum capacity field of 16 runners plus four emergencies.

Headlining the race is the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Miracles Of Life, who will jump from barrier five with Hugh Bowman as hoop. The one-time racetrack darling ran her first race under the care of her new trainers on October 18, when she finished a dead-heat winner of the Group 2 Caulfield Sprint (1100m) alongside Bel Sprinter.

The mare has come through the tough race remarkably well and Paul Snowden is confident she’ll be a contender in the 2014 G.H. Mumm Stakes on Thursday.

“I really like the way she has bounced back from that (first-up run)” Snowden told Racing Network on Wednesday.

“She had a very good grounding going into that race though.

“When we bought her at the Gold Coast she was pretty-much spent, so we gave her a long spell, as long as she wanted, then we gave her a long, slow prep with a couple of good trials and she went into the Caulfield race pretty fit having done a lot of work.

“It’s a good field but she has the quality and the ability to be highly competitive again.”

The four-year-old is one of five single figure hopefuls for the race, offering odds of $7.50 in the betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Leading the odds is the John Sadler-trained Vain Queen, who will jump middle from barrier eight with Damien Oliver as jockey.

The five-year-old has won six of her eleven career starts including the Dominant Handicap (1200m) but has finished just outside the placings in fourth her last three times out.

Bounding, the Ken & Bev Kelso-trained mare, will jump from barrier 14 with Mark Du Plessis as hoop. She had impressively finished in the top two for all 12 of her career starts before coming last in the Group 1 Manikato Stakes (1200m) last time out. Despite this she was hardly any margin away from the winner, just 2½ lengths off Lankan Rupee in a very fast race. She is second favourite for the race at $6.50.

The other single figure hopefuls are Shamal Wind and The Messina Nymph (both $7), who will start next to each other from barriers 12 and 13.

The Robert Smerdon-trained Shamal Wind has finished third her last three times out – in the Group 3 How Now Stakes (1200m), Group 3 Northwood Plume (1200m), and Group 2 Caulfield Sprint (1100m).

The Messina Nymph has won her last two starts, including the Listed Alingh Stakes.

Miss Steele ($18) will enjoy the inside run after drawing barrier one with James McDonald as a late alteration jockey.
