Ten horses have stood their ground after acceptances to run in the Group One Winx Stakes at Randwick.
The 1400m Winx Stakes will be the spring starting point for several high-profile spring horses, including Avilius and Verry Elleegant.
Avilius is one of two runners for trainer James Cummings with Best Of Days also set to resume.
The Chris Waller-trained Verry Elleegant also resumes after a hat-trick of autumn wins culminated in her ATC Australian Oaks victory.
Waller will also start Youngstar, Unforgotten and stable newcomer Kings Will Dream.
Nine-year-old Happy Clapper, a $6.8 million earner, will start another campaign as one of the elder statesmen of Australia’s weight-for-age ranks.
