2018 George Main Stakes betting: Winx still short priced favourite

Bookies at Ladbrokes.com.au have the Chris Waller trained Winx at the unbackable odds of $1.10 to win her third George Main Stakes with her nearest rival in the betting her stablemate Unforgotten at $12.

The Kris Lees trained Le Romain is the only other runner under the $20 mark at $13.

Waller can’t fault Winx in either looks or condition as she lines up for her thirty-seventh race start and as well as going for twenty-seven consecutive wins, will be chasing her twentieth Group 1 trophy and her third straight win in the George Main Stakes.

“She has come back stronger again this prep,” Waller told AAP.

“I don’t get confused anymore because she has still been growing and developing up until now. She doesn’t show the signs of slowing down.

“She just holds her condition right through.”

“Now you will send her to the races and she will drop a couple of kilos and then you put her on the scales on a Monday and she is back within a kilo or two of her racing weight

“Almost horses at the start of the prep lose 10 kilos and put most of it back on but not all of it.

“She will stay the same weight.

“She doesn’t eat any more than other horses. It’s almost like she keeps an eye on her weight. It is quite weird.

“She is just a unique horse. Maybe it is because she is not under pressure to win her races. That’s why she wins because she is actually doing it with a bit in hand.

“She is great and I can’t see any reason why she can’t continue on a bit longer.”

Winx kicked off her 2018 Spring Carnival campaign with another dominant win in the Group 1 $500,000 Winx Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on August 18 and she is on track to claim an historic fourth straight win in the Group 1 $5m Ladbrokes Cox Plate (2040m) at The Valley on October 27.

Winx has drawn barrier three in the eight horse George Main Stakes field with regular rider Hugh Bowman in the saddle again while Unforgotten will be loaded next to her in gate four with Glyn Schofield on top.

Unforgotten will also go into the George Main Stakes as a last start winner and looked very impressive with her stunning victory in the Group 2 $250,000 Bisley Workwear Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on September 1.
