Winx

Recommended Posts

I know you blokes get a chance to bet on the WS Cox Plate up there. There are usually UK/Irish representatives engaged.

 

Last year, I backed Winx for around 6 months leading up to the event for 8.00 into 5.00 and she did this:-

She came out yesterday in her pipe opener for a defence of her title and did this:-

Freakish splits. Nowt brave about tipping a even money/5-4 shot but, I note that she is available at better than 7-4/15-8 up there and believe me - that is outstanding value.

 

The race is on October 22nd. All I can do is point these things out.

I hope someone listened. I took all the 7/4 I could on Betfair. Got a little 2.86 and 2.82 here and there as well. Phenomenal performance.

To use an Americanism, I will be backing the 'threepeat' at 3.50 which they have just put up. Trainer has already said he wants to make history being the first to win it 3 times and 3 times on the trot.

Besides taking the early $3.50 for the 2017 Cox Plate, the other news I have for you boys is that it sounds like she is coming to Europe.

 

Details sketchy at present but I'll be updating you and urging you to take any earlies they put up.

Just been trialling leading up to her pipe opener in the Group 2 Warwick Stakes on August 19th which she will absolutely piss in and probably be a 1.07 shot!

 

Strong rumour is that after she completes the unprecedented feat of 3 consecutive W.S. Cox Plate wins in October, she will be put away and readied for Royal Ascot.

 

I hope this is right because we might finally get some odds! Can't complain, I have over a grands worth of free bonus bets on her for the Cox Plate at prices ranging from 3.50 down to evens. Free money.

I remember it happening once with some bookie over there (was it Fred Done?) paying out early on Man United winning the PL.

 

Never happened to me before but Sportsbet down here have paid out early on Winx winning her third consecutive W.S. Cox Plate tomorrow. A few grand straight into the account and it's not even race day yet!

 

I had been backing her since last October at various prices starting at 3.50 and down to evens. She is currently $1.15 to win tomorrow.

 

As I have said previously, if you see black odds about her for whatever they decide to go for at Royal Ascot, don't hold back.

 

This is what she does to Group 1 fields (her warm up race for tomorrow)

nice to be paid out before the race, as you know anything can happen once racing. I'm not sure she'll be backable over here if she does win again in the Cox Plate, the bookies won't be overly generous, no chance of EVS+

Interesting race tomorrow given Folkswood’s presence. You’d expect him to be fit and, while he’d be a fair bit short of top class, he could give us a line to European form.

That's a shame. I suppose it's what she goes for.  Likely to be a big mile race or preferably a mile and a quarter. I have no chance of getting anything other than tomato sauce down here.

 

Evens would be luxurious odds for me.

 

I am sat here 30 minutes out from the Cox Plate and there is a big track bias towards leaders - the pundits rating it a 2-3 length start. This means that Royal Symphony, a 3yo with a feather weight, may have some advantage. I am predicting that Winx may only win by 8-10 lengths now.

Well, she did it but not easily as expected.

 

Beat Humidor by half a length with a big gap back to Folkswood. As I'd already been paid out, it was actually good to see her receive the challenge and fight to maintain the gap and I believe she was just starting to pull away again at the line.

 

Most of her races have been processions so it was pleasing to see her fight.

 

History made now with 3 consecutive Cox Plates. Final decision on Royal Ascot next March.

Bet they don’t run her.

 

 

What odds will you give me? The owners are very keen.

 

Must admit, the temptation to head to the breeding barn must be immense. Telephone numbers.

Not going to ascot, staying in aus

 

Bottled it. Rather race against Aussie nags in virtual walkovers than face the elite.

Nothing to tell, just a train of thought.

 

Rather stay in Aus to run in a race he's already won 3 times.

Traf is right on all counts (apart from the fact that she's a mare).

 

Bottled it indeed but, I suppose when you've banked millions from her, you don't really give a fuck what anyone else thinks.

 

Winning the Cox Plate 3 times consecutively is phenomenal. If she manages it 4 times, it will never be matched.

 

Not sure I am viewing it right but it just may be that they have noticed a very slight drop in her performances? Not absolutely streeting them any more unless my eyes deceive me or I am not making allowances for her best to be seen in her stated 'cup finals'. Maybe there's just an inkling that she may not be at her very best now and the thought or her winning run being ended in 'Pommyland' is just too much to bear?

 

There seems to have been a drop in confidence across the entire Australian sporting scene recently. Can't think why.

Winx would win.

 

 

A wise man speaks. Those 'in the know' know that Moonee Valley is as peculiar as Chester if not more so. Most definitely horses for courses and she has had massive experience there.

Hence the reluctance to try her overseas.
