Winx $1.10 in Queen Elizabeth bid

Tue, Apr 4, 1:49pm by Senior Writer

Winx is set to start the shortest price of her career when she contests Saturday’s $4 million Queen Elizabeth Stakes as she looks to stretch her winning streak to 17.

Sportsbet have opened the superstar mare at $1.10 to win the race against eight rivals as she looks to move her prizemoney earned to north of $12 million. She drew barrier three in the nine-horse field

Hartnell, her perennial whipping boy over the past 12 months, is second favourite at $11 for the 2000m weight for age test, having being thrashed by eight lengths when the two last met in this distance range in the Cox Plate last October.

The United States is third favourite at $15, while Happy Clapper, who was runner-up in last week’s Doncaster Mile, is a $21 chance.

Exospheric, who ran third in both the Australian Cup and The BMW his past two runs, is $41 with the horse who ran third in the Doncaster, Sense of Occasion, rated at $101. Harlem ($126), Singing ($126) and No Doubt ($331) round out the market.

Winx started at $1.09 when she won the George Ryder Stakes last Spring, beating subsequent Group 1 winners Hauraki and It’s Somewhat.

Like Day 1 of the Championship, there are four Group 1s on offer on Saturday, with the Sydney Cup, the Australian Oaks and the Coolmore Legacy Queen of the Turf also being run.

Darren Weir’s in-form stayer Big Duke is $2.80 favourite for the Sydney Cup, having come up with barrier five. Lloyd Williams stayer Assign is $7 second pick ahead of veteran Sydney stayer Who Shot Thebarman, who carries top weight of 57kg and is $7.50.

Waller also has Libran ($13) and Kinema ($31) engaged in the event.

The two internationally trained gallopers in the event are the Charlie Appleby pair of Penglai Pavilion and Polarisation, who are $10 and $13 respectively.

The last start Group 1 William Reid Stakes winner Silent Sedition is $4.60 favourite for the Queen Of The Turf. Waller’s filly Foxplay is the main challenger for her favouritism at $5.50, while Dixie Blossoms are at $7.50, while Heavens Above is $8.

The Australian Oaks could be headed the same direction as the Derby, with Kiwi filly Bonneval the $4 favourite.

Victorian fillies Harlow Gold ($5) and Nurse Kitchen ($6) are next in the market along with Crown oaks winner Lasqueti Spirit ($8) and Devise ($8)
