Winx Leads Strong Warwick Stakes Nominations

Winx has posted an incredible seventeen-consecutive race wins in the lead-up to her 2017 Spring Carnival campaign and is primed for a typically strong first-up run.

Resuming in autumn for a smart win in the Group 2 Apollo Stakes (1400m), the Street Cry mare comfortably beat a classy field to the line in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) before beating some of the Autumn Carnival’s best horses by close to eight length in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m).

Last seen posting a dominant win in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) on Day 2 of The Championships, Winx has trialled exceedingly well in the lead-up to the Warwick Stakes and should just win the race.

Trainer Chris Waller is set to launch a multi-pronged attack in the race after also including Antonio Giuseppe, Who Shot Thebarman and Foxplay in 2017 Warwick Stakes nominations.

Antonio Giuseppe was a revelation upon debuting for Waller last spring; post four-consecutive race wins before finishing second in the Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m).

Fourth in the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) most notably in autumn, the Shocking gelding will undoubtedly need this run before finding his best form.

A Melbourne Cup prospect once more this season, Who Shot Thebarman has trialled well in the lead-up to the Warwick Stakes, but will improve further into his campaign and over longer distances.

Foxplay broke through for a maiden win at the highest level during her recent Autumn Carnival campaign and is a live chance of a first-three finish in the Warwick Stakes.

Returning to winning form in the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes (1500m) first-up on March 11th, the Foxwedge mare ran a credible fourth in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) before flying home to win the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) on Day 2 of The Championships.

Invincible Gem returned to the races for a smart win in the Group 2 Missile Stakes (1200m) a fortnight ago and is arguably the best chance of any included in 2017 Warwick Stakes nominations of challenging Winx.

Winner of the Group 3 Spring Stakes (1600m) early in February, the I Am Invincible mare ran a close second behind Inference in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) before being sent to the paddock.

Inference has also been included in 2017 Warwick Stakes nominations, but is another horse that will likely need a run before finding his best racing condition.

The 2017 Warwick Stakes field and barrier draw is due to be completed and released by midday, Wednesday.
