Superstar mare Winx could be the catalyst for Hugh Bowman to score an unlikely win in the battle for the Nathan Berry Medal.
Kerrin McEvoy leads the Medal race on four points and Sportsbet.com.au has him as the $1.75 favourite.
Bowman missed day one and has zero points, but is second favourite at $2.80 with the online bookmaker.
Bowman, of course, partners Winx ($1.16 favourite) in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes.
His other Group 1 rides include Unforgotten ($3.95 favourite) in the Oaks and Zanbagh ($81) in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes.
“Winx will give Hughie three points for sure and Unforgotten looks a super chance in the Oaks. It’s a big ask for the jockey, but he’s one of the best in the world and only a fool would write him off,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
