Champion mare Winx has given punters a fright in a couple of runs, but the freakish mare is set to blow them away in Saturday’s Turnbull Stakes.
Winx has won her last three Sydney starts by a combined total of 2.5 lengths, but sportsbet is tipping the mighty mare to better that in the Flemington Group 1.
The online bookmaker has Winx at $1.60 to win the Turnbull Stakes by two or more lengths, $3.00 for the margin to be less than two lengths and heaven forbid $5.00 not to win.
Jockey Hugh Bowman, who has ridden the mare in 17 consecutive wins, is $1.33 not to give his familiar ‘she’s apples’ salute before the mare crosses the line and $3.30 to use the salute.
Winx is $1.18 to win the race and $9.00 to break the track record.
“Winx loves the big stage and there’s no bigger stage than Flemington. Her winning margins in Sydney haven’t been what we’re accustomed to seeing, but she has the Turnbull Stakes at her mercy and more than two lengths seems likely,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
