Winx Impressive, Chautauqua Doesn't Jump

Hugh Bowman declares  "I would suggest that's as good as she's ever trialled" post the Winx trial today to Sky Racing and it was hard to disagree with the assessment as the great mare warms nicely to her return via the newly named Winx Stakes at Randwick on Saturday August 18.

Winx settled at the rear and picked up beautifully in the straight under no riding from Bowman to finish third beaten 1.2 behind the winner Alizee. In that first heat of the morning the connections of the first five runners home in Alizee, Ace High, Winx, D'Argento and Hartnell would all have to be very pleased with their respective runners.

Unfortunately it was another case of staying in gates for Chautauqua in the fifth heat of the morning with a racing future of the 'Grey Flash' appearing unlikely. Trapeze Artist went around in the same trial and eased down under a strong hold to only be 0.7 lengths from the winner.

A few of the lesser known black-bookers could very well come out of heat 9, with the winner Happy Bubbles having his first ever competitive and public hit-out. He and the runner-up Debate ran the fastest 900m trial of the morning and Happy Bubbles especially lengthened very nicely and comfortably under his own steam. He is un-raced 3yo gelding by Snitzel and this Gerald Ryan trained youngster looks one to follow.
