Winx races today for the first time since saluting in her third consecutive Ladbrokes Cox Plate at Moonee Valley last October and she is fast approaching the 25 straight wins of undefeated sprint star Black Caviar.
Black Caviar and Winx also currently co-hold the Group 1 racing record in Australia of 15 elite level victories.
Winx racing in the Chipping Norton Stakes as the odds-on $1.08 favourite this afternoon though is sure to see the six-year-old eclipse Black Caviar and make history as a 16-time Group 1 champion.
Jockey Hugh Bowman reunites with Winx and she jumps from barrier six in the nine-horse field.
Bowman is back from a dual careless riding suspension that saw the autumn return of Winx delayed by two weeks.
She may be first-up over a mile without a lead-up run in the Apollo Stakes as was originally intended, but Winx is simply too good for any of the rivals she faces today and the Chipping Norton Stakes 2018 Form Guide Facts support a win by the superlative daughter of Street Cry.
Winx Form for Today
Winx resumes after an 18 week spell and gave the punters a bit of a scare first-up last preparation.
She also gives the fitness edge away to a few of her rivals including those coming out of the Apollo Stakes, which has produced six of the past seven Chipping Norton Stakes winners.
Still, the Winx odds for today are $1.08 at Ladbrokes.com.au and that seems juicy considering the calibre of this champion.
Back her now!
