Eight-time Group One winner Verry Elleegant is favoured to defend her Winx Stakes title and will jump from barrier five on Saturday.

She recorded a famous victory in the 2020 edition when racing wide throughout the 1400m journey, but fought hard to prevail late.

Kolding (barrier 10), Imaging (barrier six), Star Of The Seas (barrier nine) and Hungry Heart (barrier three) are the four other Chris Waller-trained runners to have accepted for this feature.

There is also dual representation from Team Hawkes with Master Of Wine (barrier eight) and Mount Popa (barrier one).

A total of 14 runners make up a strong final field for the Winx Stakes, which is the first Group One of the 2021/2022 season.
