Winx tunes up for fourth Cox Plate

Winx is in great shape ahead of an attempt at a fourth Cox Plate.

Winx has pleased her jockey and trainer in a 1000m-gallop at Moonee Valley ahead of her bid for a fourth Cox Plate.

The mare attracted a large early morning crowd at the track where Hugh Bowman kept her under a tight hold for most of the work-out.

“She was relaxed before her work and was strong,” Bowman said.

“I let her use herself to the corner and it took a while to pick her up after the line which is a good sign.”

Trainer Chris Waller watched her work and said he was pleased with what he saw on Tuesday morning.

He says believes it will take a champion or bad luck to beat her on Saturday.”
