KEY QUOTES

“She hasn’t got the world’s best rating for nothing but we just need to make sure that she stays the same and she’ll hold that rating” – trainer Chris Waller on Winx

“It will give me a good guide as to what to expect in the Caulfield Cup in two weeks’ time” – Chris Waller again, this time on Winx’s stablemate Youngstar

“After Saturday he’ll have a couple of goes around Moonee Valley. He’ll probably do Breakfast with the Stars and I’d say he might have another look” – trainer Mick Price on Grunt heading towards towards a Cox Plate start
