    Winx Stakes Form Guide

    There hasn’t been much betting activity in the Winx Stakes for the last few years, due to Winx winning the race. Her races weren’t overly popular as she typically paid around $1.05 to win. 

    Prior to Winx winning, punters got some good value with some good horses. The likes of Royal Descent, Tiger Tees and Trusting all paid nice prices for well-favoured types. 

    Punters don’t have much form to go on as it’s one of the first spring races in Sydney, but it takes a good horse to win. 

    Look for the runners that performed highly in the autumn and ones that are looking for 1600-2000m later in their preparation. 

    Many past winners have gone on to win the Cox Plate at Moonee Valley.
