Humidor out-rated Winx despite running 2nd in the Cox Plate

Winx once again stole the show on Saturday, winning her third successive Cox Plate and holding off the fast finishing Humidor to win by a long neck.

However to the surprise of many, Winx failed to rate on top in the race with the runner up trumping the mighty mare in the Cox Plate ratings.

Racing Victoria’s chief handicapper Greg Carpenter explained that Humidor out-rated Winx due to the margin and weight difference between the two runners.

“Everyone continues to be focused and intrigued by the ratings,” Carpenter told

“To explain it, Humidor gave Winx 2kg on Saturday, and the margin was only half a length, which – at 2000m – is one rating point.

“So really, Humidor comes out of this Cox Plate with a higher rating on the day than Winx did.

“For me, he ran 122 when he won the Makybe Diva. He’s back to that sort of form.

“So if he’s run to 122, she had 2kg less – I think you can call the margin two lengths in the end, because Hughie (Hugh Bowman) was soft on her – so she’s mathematically run to 120, so it hasn’t surpassed her previous best of 132.”

Humidor’s run in the Cox Plate has seen him firm to become the $7.50 second favourite in Melbourne Cup betting.
