2015 Sires’ Produce Stakes Field Features Queen Of Wands

Clarry ConnersQueen Of Wands is the only last-start winner in the field and will enjoy the inside jump from barrier one with Damian Lane to ride.

The two-year-old filly has had four career starts, winning her maiden her last time out in handicap race over 1300 metres at Sandown Racecourse on February 25, which she won by two and a quarter lengths.

The filly was originally set on a Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) path but after running unplaced in both the Group 3 Blue Diamond Fillies Preview (1000m) and Group 2 Blue Diamond Fillies Prelude (1100m) those plans were scrapped.

Speaking of the Blue Diamond Stakes, two runners are coming via the $1 million feature race – Manhattan Blues and Sampeah.

The Tony McEvoy-trained Manhattan Blues won her maiden on debut on January 10 and finished runner-up in the 2YO Inglis Premier (1000m) on February 7, earning her place in the Blue Diamond field of 14. She finished fourth in the race, leading the remainder of the unplaced field.

Manhattan Blues will jump from barrier nine with Mark Zahra as jockey.

Sampeah finished third to Of The Brave and Pride Of Duabi in the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude (1100m) for colts and geldings on February 14 but couldn’t deliver the same result in the main event race, finishing midfield in eighth place.

The John O’Shea-trained colt will jump from barrier three with James Doyle to ride.

Ciaron Maher will deliver a dual-pronged attack on the 2015 Sires’ Produce Stakes in the form of Well Sighted and Jameka.

Well Sighted won a handicap over 1205m at Sale on February 8 while Jameka has finished second, third, and fourth in all three of her starts but has yet to win. The filly will have to overcome a wide start from the outside gate with Nicholas Hall.

Matthew Ellerton & Simon Zahra’s Ice Flow has placed in two of his four career starts, the last of which was running third to Queen Of Wands at Sandown on February 25. The colt will jump from the next gate to his rival (two) with Dwayne Dunn.
