Winx Stakes Preview
13 October, 2023
Group 1 racing returns to Randwick in a race that has produced some champion horses and provided some real key insights as to how the spring will play out. Here’s my on top hopes for the Winx Stakes.
Fangirl returns again this season and with no Anamoe in sight it looks a prime opportunity for her to have a very successful spring campaign. Had trialed well and has a good first up record. Loves the trip only missing the placings once at the 7 furlongs. She will drop back and get cover and will be flashing home late. The services of James McDonald are also a massive plus for this mare. She’s the one to beat.
Think It Over has trialed up in good order. Goes super first up winning on four occasions and does appreciate soft going. Draws well for a cosy midfield run and at the odds is a good each way play.
Zaaki loves the track and trip and boasts a near perfect first up record. Was impressive in a Rosehill trial and reunited with Jamie Kah who will be hungry for success after a long stint on the sidelines. Will make his own luck on the speed and is a genuine chance.
Golden Mile was a forget and forgive first up in what was a messy encounter. Draws to map well here and prior to that trialed up super. Steps up to 1400 metres which is a trip he’s won over in the past. Loves a soft track and can see him bouncing back and redeeming himself.
On top hope is Fangirl as it finally looks like the stars are aligning for this bridesmaid. The main dangers are Zaaki and Think It Over and looking at Golden Mile to bounce back and challenge for the minors.
