Winx Stakes Form Guide & Tips


1. Mo’unga (Best Each Way – $6) Bet @ Bet365

The son of Savabeel is a two-time winner fresh up and he has the class to beat this field fresh up. Drawing barrier two is ideal and with five wins from 16 starts, he can’t be overlooked at the each-way quote.

2. Stockman ($101) Bet @ Bet365

We don’t expect Stockman to be competitive against this level of opposition. The son of Tavistock is a past winner at Randwick but he has yet to win over this distance.

Bookmakers have huge odds available but he was specked after opening at $201. He should win a nice race in the spring but he’s unlikely to be competitive here.

3. Anamoe (Best Bet – $2.80) Bet @ Bet365

Anamoe has drifted a touch since opening at $2.60, but the four-year-old is the class act of the field and he demands attention.

The son of Street Boss is a two-time winner at Randwick and he appreciates these conditions, so he’s likely to sit off the pace and hit his straps late.

Having James McDonald in the saddle only adds to his appeal.

4. Profondo ($14) Bet @ Bet365

Profondo disappointed in two runs during the autumn and he’s likely looking for something longer.

He won his only start at Randwick and at the distance, but he matured into a staying type and this will likely be too short.

It could pay to watch late betting moves.

5. Hilal (Best Roughie – $18) Bet @ Bet365

The has had the benefit of a race day start this preparation and that could give him an advantage.

It is tough for punters to know when he’ll show his best form but he has won almost $1.3 million, so he can’t be overlooked.

He loves Randwick and the firming conditions help, so include at odds.

6. Benaud ($67) Bet @ Bet365

Looked the winner at Randwick last start over 2400m, but dropping in distance isn’t ideal and he’s an outright stayer.

That form also came against his own age, so he could struggle against the older horses.

7. Duais ($15) Bet @ Bet365

A lovely type getting ready for the middle-distance races later in the spring. A good run would be her settling back and hitting the line nicely.

If they go quickly up front, we wouldn’t be surprised to see her finishing over the top at a genuine price.

8. Forbidden Love ($5) Bet @ Bet365

We were disappointed with Forbidden Love’s effort at Randwick last start but she can’t be left out.

She has been backed in from an opening quote of $7 and that’s a good sign. However, despite her best form coming on wet tracks, she’s too good to leave out.

Watch late moves as they could be telling.

9. Icebath ($27) Bet @ Bet365

Icebath is only a four-time winner from 32 starts but she has won $4.2 million. It’s hard to believe, but she’s a tough type to work out.

She is often beaten when favoured to win and she wins when the odds are long, just like for Saturday’s Winx Stakes. However, we’re prepared to leave her out of our calculations.

10. Fangirl ($8) Bet @ Bet365

Fangirl could be in for a big spring and the Chris Waller-trained mare goes into our selections.

She is a two-time winner at the course and distance, and her best form comes on drier tracks, so any sunshine helps her chances.

Having Hugh Bowman riding helps and she could be the forgotten type.

11. Hinged ($13) Bet @ Bet365

Fresh up form reads well but she might be a touch below some of these. She will likely push forward and give them something to catch.
