Winx Randwick Barrier Trial was stunning performance as she wins impressively

  • Trainer Chris Waller walked away with a massive smile on his face
  • His horses, not just Winx, look like dominating the Spring
Winx wins her Randwick trial this morning

The caller, Luke Marlow from Sky racing, said it best as wonder mare WINX crossed the line in front of her star-studded rivals at Randwick this morning.

She cruised in her trial, her first ever victory at trial level, which in itself was something of a talking point.

So much so, during the run home, Marlowe said, "Winx wins and that's an ominous warning for opposition first up."

It may well be for her entire campaign this Spring.

To recap the run, she cut through on the inside of the leader STAMPEDE with 150m to go and went under to win, under a hold from PARIAH and HAPPY CLOCKER who worked home gamely and it must be said, impressively, from near the rear after being wide.

Bowman had a lap full of horse when he took Winx to the lead. And still had same when she croissed the line.

 With the red markers out a fair way to preserve the course proper, Winx, after settling 5th two lengths off the pace, accelerated to win and win well.

But while all eyes were on her, nearly everyone missed the trial of her stablemate, ANTONIO GUISEPPE.

He officially ran 8th of the nine runners but Tommy Berry had a stranglehold on the stayer as he crossed the line only 1.5 lengths behind the great mare.

He tracked her all the way and Berry was quite content to sit behind Bowman and allow the mare all the due accolades.

But I want to be on him when he races this time up. His trial was perhaps even more impressive to my eye.

Unless he's up against her of course.

Winx ran 59.98sec coming home her last 600m in 35.50sec and is due to race in a fortnight or so.

Winx won at the Randwick trials, but her stablemate was equally if not more impressive.
