Winx set to trial ahead of George Main Stakes

Champion mare Winx is likely to run in a barrier trial at Warwick Farm to sharpen her fitness ahead of the Group One George Main Stakes.

Trainer Chris Waller opted to avoid the heavy Randwick track and scratch Winx from the Chelmsford Stakes on Saturday.

Winx’s next start is to be the George Main Stakes at Randwick on September 17 before she travels to Melbourne for the Caulfield Stakes, her final lead-up race to her Cox Plate defence.

Waller said he would rather see her trial at Warwick Farm on Friday than have an exhibition gallop during Saturday’s Golden Rose meeting on her home track at Rosehill.

“She galloped well on Monday,” Waller said.

“The back-up plan would be to gallop on Saturday at Rosehill.

“I’d prefer the trial, it would just bring her on a little bit more.”
