    Waller getting worried at how track is racing. Gonna send D’Argentino to the front to rattle Benbatl.

    Getting worried now. Hopefully we see a bit of change over longer distances like normal.

    The Autumn Sun going straight to the front would have made this interesting. I wonder what price it would have been now with the current state of the track.

    Without getting carried away imagine being track manager that’s perceived to get Winx beat in #4. Irrelevant if it that’s the actual reason or not, would need security escort off the track.

    Would expect the last 3 would have been leaderish as well. If she gets beat it’s because she’s clearly not going as well in the last 12 months. On current form she doesn’t have much on Benbatl and Humidor at their best. If she does get beaten I’d feel sick but would fall down if she puts lengths on them.

    The reply really says a lot doesn't it? Bowman should have opened her up to put the exclamation point on it.

    Gun ride, big day ride by Hughie.

    Did it easy. Panels batter than Benbatl who gapped the rest minus Humidor.

    Not greatly suited by day/conditions and not at her best at 7yo but clearly best horse in world.

    If you're a horse person you will take note that she blew up over the back in her last 2 runs & still gave them a lesson.

    She is a 7yo mare, just won her 4th Cox Plate, which is arguably our best WFA race.

    That doesn't happen, she is the best horse we've had in 30 years.

    If that's what you think, I'm sorry for your ignorance.

    The connections put the welfare of this exceptional mare b4 any other considerations.

    Who was proven right.? No other horse in history has won 4 Cox Plates.

    Maybe, I've been around racehorses for most of my life, my previous best horse was Kingston Town.

    This girl just went above & beyond. 7yo mares do not race, and win, at this level.

    Bloody Matt Hill torching another Cox Plate with his trash pre planned call. Obviously came up with too many cliches over a brandy last night and just tried to spit them all out inside the last 300m
