* In 2016 Winx became the first horse since Kingston Town (1981/82) to go on and win the Cox Plate

WHAT THE KEY PLAYERS ARE SAYING:

“I’m very happy with how things have gone and she is in good health and is in picture perfect condition,” – Winx’s trainer Chris Waller

“Unforgotten is a very talented horse but she can’t beat Winx unless she has an off day and she hasn’t done that for 26 starts,” – Waller

“It’s Somewhat is probably going to need another run over the mile here. I think that will set him up nicely for the remainder of his campaign,” – It’s Somewhat’s trainer James Cummings
