Winx has drawn the outside barrier in the 10-horse Queen Elizabeth Stakes, but of course she is still a red-hot favourite to be the star of the show at The Championships.
aWinx is poised to equal Black Caviar’s run of 25 consecutive wins. Sportsbet.com.au has priced the superstar mare at $1.15 to achieve the feat in Saturday’s Randwick Group 1.
The online bookmaker has Doncaster winner Happy Clapper as the $10 second favourite.
Melbourne Cup winner Almandin also has a stranglehold on favouritism for the Sydney Cup.
Almandin ($3.80) heads Sir Charles Road ($10 into $7.50) and Aloft ($8.00) is the only other runner under double figures.
“Winx could start in the carpark and still win, but the outside barrier is probably a bonus. Jockey Hugh Bowman will be able to keep her out of trouble and let her unleash that powerful run she produces every time she races,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
