Winx works at The Valley

Champion mare Winx galloped at Moonee Valley under Hugh Bowman on Tuesday morning as the Waller stable continue her build up for her WS Cox Plate defence at The Valley on October 27th.

Trainer Chris Waller reported the 'routine gallop' went well.

"Winx worked over 1200m at ¾ pace and then breezed up over the final 400m where she went through her gears nicely and was full of running at the completion of her work," he said.

"Hugh was very complimentary of how she felt and he was extremely pleased with where she is at leading into the Cox Plate.

"Winx has come through her win in the Turnbull Stakes without any issues and is progressing well towards the Ladbrokes Cox Plate.

"It is our intention to take her to the Breakfast with the Best at Moonee Valley next Tuesday as we have prior to each of her Cox Plate victories to date," he said.
