I know they are much harder to win as they are contested by geldings who keep their form over many years and are by default much more competitive.

27 in a row, in the books, most of the other good horses were in Melbourne to avoid her.

I disagree with iants claims about hurricane fly, only 1 win at cheltenham, which is the pinnacle of jumps racing in that area and most of the G1's were against 5 horse fields. Without going through it in detail, Winx has won Australia's major race 3 times and will possibly win a 4th.

She will also at least equal or surpass Hurricane Fly very soon, also Hurricane Fly was able to race for 10 years, I don't think you will seed winx as a 12yo.

Also that article is tabloid writing, moody was accused of Cobolt in BC, which makes no sense as cobalt helps stayers. ask the americans in this game what there horses are allowed to race on. It makes me wonder if Frankel was on drugs, geez i should write an article. Just remember, BC raced in England, was there any abnormality with the swab? Poor Form

Make that 28. I thought she was gone today. Didn't look the same Winx until the last little bit. She had to work hard and I reckon the Cox Plate will be it unless they go for a soft kill to get 30 in a row.

I'm wondering if there is something that can get her in the plate, especially if they can box her in
