Winx priced at $1.10 to win her 15th race in a row

Tue, Feb 21, 10:11am by Senior Writer

Winx’s shot at a 15th-straight victory in Saturday’s Chipping Norton Stakes at Randwick will see the champion mare go around at the prohibitive odds of $1.10.

Early markets for Saturday’s $600,000 Group One race have Winx at around the shortest price she has been in her previous 24 starts. She started $1.09 when she won the George Main Stakes in September last year, while she was $1.14 when she won her most recent start in impressive fashion in the Apollo Stakes.

There were 12 rivals nominated for the race, including Hartnell, who she has beaten in all five meetings the pair have had. Hartnell finished second to Winx in the Apollo Stakes as well as the 2016 Cox Plate and the 2016 Warwick Stakes.

Hartnell is currently $8 second favourite, with Endless Drama, the imported galloper who ran third in the Apollo, at $18.

He’s Our Rokkii, a Group One winner over the 1600m in the Toorak Handicap last Spring, is currently $26, but is also entered for the Futurity Stakes at Caulfield.

There are three Group One races at Caulfield on Saturday, the Blue Diamond Stakes, the Oakleigh Plate and the Futurity.

Prior to the barrier draw, Catchy was the favourite for the Blue Diamond but that may change by the end of Tuesday. We’ll have a separate article on that later.

Three-year-old Extreme Choice is $3.60 favourite for the Oakleigh Plate despite his contemporaries Star Turn and Flying Artie failing to beat the older sprinters in last week’s Lightning Stakes.

Fell Swoop is second pick at $6, and Hellbent is $7 with I am a Star at $10.

Black Heart Bart is $1.70 to win yet another Group One in the Futurity Stakes. Turn Me
Loose is currently second pick at $7 along with another Darren Weir pair Palentino and Tosen Stardom. Just seven horses were nominated for the race.
