Fans of racing in the harbour city also have plenty to look forward to this weekend with the country’s best horse Winx making a welcome return to the track in the Apollo Stakes (Race 6) over 1400m at Randwick.
In the process, she’ll resume hostilities with Hartnell, who went to another level last preparation with dominant victories in both the Chelmsford and Turnbull Stakes before having to settle for minor place money in both the Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup.
While the Godolphin star is frequently built up in racing circles as a challenger to Winx’s reign, it’s hard to get away from the fact that the career ledger reads 4-0 in favour of the mare and we fully expect that to become 5-zip on Saturday.
Indeed, punters were keen to snap up the 1.20 dangled in front of them when our market was released on Wednesday afternoon and Winx is currently trading at half of that quote in a clear sign that she is expected to romp it in.
Unibet.com.au clients are encouraged to ‘multi-up’ Winx with some of their other favoured selections in order to generate a greater return on investment.
