Cox Plate results: Winx is the victor for the 4th time

But, when asked how she pulled up, Chris Waller tells Alan Jones his horse is doing just fine.

Therefore it was not unreasonable to wonder about the quality of competition Winx had faced in her Cox Plate hat-trick.

Waller has said all week that "only bad luck or an absolute champion" can prevent Winx from claiming a fourth victory in the race.

"Going past the straight the first time I was a little concerned she might get caught three wide but it all just unfolded very well", Waller said.

That might be the case, but this time around she beat a high-quality European challenger who was at the top of his game, who was racing over his ideal distance and had been given every chance by his rider, Oisin Murphy.

Fresh from a record fourth Cox Plate triumph, the mare will head for a spell with no decision on her future to be made until next year.

"We're just making sure she's still as good as the year before, or even six months". On Thursday I rang a few close mates to have a bit of a chat, I just try to do things to keep my mind occupied.

Winx is washed down by stablehands at Moonee Valley after a workout.

"He's been a lovely sound horse and never had a problem so it wasn't a great race for the stable".

She is a champion, still gracing the turf at an age when many comparable racemares have had one or two foals and are long consigned to the breeding barn.

"If Winx was an entire then they are so valuable from a stud perspective they wouldn't still be a racehorse, they would be at stud, " Bowman said.

"There you go Matt, they came, we conquered, bring on everything you want to bring".

"Also, Chris's management and his discipline in not over-racing her is why she is still racing at the peak of her form".
