Winx, as a surprise to nobody, is the overwhelming favourite with Sportsbet.com.au to take the Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) this Saturday at Randwick.
The Chris Waller mare is looking to join Black caviar on 25 straight wins and is also looking to win her second straight QEll after bolting up last year. She is at $1.16. She opened $1.15 and after the barrier draw, she touched $1.18 but the big boys and girls thought that price was too good and have stepped in.
Humidor is the only horse during the winning sequence of Winx that has sat behind the mare, given her a start and took ground off her. He is $13 to $12 and did touch $11. He’s been the best backed, largely for the place.
In terms of the big guns behind the mare, the notable drifter is Happy Clapper ($10-$15) despite bolting up in the Doncaster last Saturday.
