Apollo Stakes hovers into view for Winx

After a pleasing barrier trial at Rosehill on Tuesday morning the great mare Winx get's the green light from trainer Chris Waller for what is likely to be her final campaign.

Under regular jockey Hugh Bowman, Winx produced a fine effort to finish third in the 1000m heat behind Spright and Cool Passion and the Group 2 Apollo Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on 16th February now hovers into view.

"We've allowed an extra week, so we've got it up our sleeve if we need it," Waller said after the trial  "I was very happy with that. She's the ultimate professional and this morning's trial was perfect to my eye.

"We know that retirement is getting close, but we are fully focused on each race as it comes and looking for signs of her slowing down, which haven't been evident yet."

Winx is $3.00 to win the Cox Plate at Australian online bookmaker Bet365 with The Autumn Sun $6.00 and Arcadia Queen $15.00.
