Miracle To Me is aiming for richer honours after pulling off a surprise last-to-first victory at Flemington on Saturday.
Trainer John McArdle will now direct the filly towards the Group Two Thousand Guineas Prelude at Caulfield on September 21 after her win in the Domain 1100m.
He expects the Prelude to tell him if Miracle To Me is good enough to run in the $500,000 Thousand Guineas on October 16.
McArdle thought the 1100m straight sprint may have been too short for his filly but she surprised him.
“Her work during the week was good and we just wanted to see her hit the line which she did,” he said.
Miracle To Me won at her last outing at Sandown on a heavy track and proved to McArdle she is even better on top of the ground.
“We’ll have a crack at something better now,” he said.
“She’ll go to the Guineas Prelude in a couple of weeks time but I would suggest the Thousand Guineas is the aim at this stage.”
In a tight finish, Miracle To Me ($26) found an unimpeded path through the pack to finish to a head in front of Bulbula ($11) and Mezeray Miss ($15) a further three quarters of a length away third.
Jockey Chris Symons said Miracle To Me had the ability to switch off during the run and then reel off solid sectionals.
