Champion Winx will start from barrier six when she takes on eight opponents in the Group One Chipping Norton Stakes at Randwick.
Winx is making a belated start to her campaign in Saturday’s 1600m-race after her owners and trainer Chris Waller opted not to start her in the Group Two Apollo Stakes because her jockey Hugh Bowman was suspended.
She will start the odds-on favourite in the Chipping Norton which she has won for the past two years.
Winx will be aiming to win the race for the third time and extending her winning streak to 23.
The horses to take on Winx are Classic Uniform, Jemadar, Lasqueti Spirit, Libran, Prized Icon, Stampede, Vinland and Who Shot Thebarman.
