2016 Chelmsford Stakes Betting: Winx Record Short Odds

Chris Waller’s champion mare Winx has opened her shortest price to date to post her eleventh consecutive victory second-up in the Chelmsford Stakes 2016 this Saturday in Sydney.

The six-time Group 1 winning daughter of Street Cry is the dominant favourite to take out the $250,000 Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick Racecourse on the weekend and continue her gun run of form.

A now five-year-old, Winx hasn’t been defeated since her second to Gust Of Wind in last year’s Group 1 ATC Oaks (2400m).

All ten of her subsequent runs have produced success as the odds on the Cox Plate hero continue to shorten with each win.

First-up on August 20 she blew her rivals away in a canter posting a 3.5 length victory in the Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m) as the $1.28 favourite.

She currently sits at the nearly un-backable Chelmsford Stakes odds of $1.14 through Ladbrokes.com.au to be first past the post again on Saturday with Hugh Bowman continuing his association from barrier eight of eight.

Waller is unconcerned about his mare’s wide alley in a small field that features five of her stablemates.

“It’s not a bad draw in the field of a 1600 metre race,” the master trainer told AAP.

“She showed last start she’s pretty versatile whether she goes back or forward it just depends on the tempo of the race.

“The beauty of Hugh Bowman is that he knows her so well.

“She’s got speed to get herself out of trouble wherever she is.”

The only other runner under double-figures in Chelmsford Stakes betting this Sydney Spring Racing Carnival though is from outside the Waller stable, the James Cummings-trained Prized Icon paying $7.50 for the upset.

Winner of the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) in Sydney last April as a two-year-old, Cummings’ classy More Than Ready colt comes off a first-up fourth against his own age in the Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m) at Randwick a fortnight ago.

History is against him in the Chelmsford as a three-year-old, where he gets in on just 50.5kg with Kathy O’Hara riding, as no horse that age has won the race in the past 30 years.

Nine have attempted in the past three decades producing four placings with the latest being Platinum Scissors who finished second to Lonhro in 2002.

The only other Chelmsford Stakes runner considered any kind of chance of stopping Winx is the John O’Shea-trained Hartnell ($11), the Godolphin galloper coming off a second to her in the Warwick Stakes first-up.

Hartnell also crossed fifth to Winx in the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) last October and chases his maiden win since taking out Rosehill’s Group 1 The BMW (2400m) in March of 2015.

Waller’s other shortest-priced chance meanwhile is Preferment ($34) who Tommy Berry rides first-up from barrier seven.

The Zabeel stallion has never placed first-up in his four previous resuming runs, but is a four-time Group 1 winner who trialled nicely at Rosehill in mid-August.
