Winx is one of eight fillies and mares trainer Chris Waller has paid the first acceptance fee for the $1m weight for age race for the females on day two of ‘The Championships’.

Waller’s other first acceptances are the well performed fillies Omei Sword and Foxplay along with Chandana, Elle Lou, French Emotion, Shillelagh and Zumbelina.

While the Group 1 $4m Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) is Winx’s main target of ‘The Championships’, Waller has kept the glamour mare in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes on the same day as insurance in case she suffers a setback during her Autumn Carnival campaign.

Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott might only have two horses in the first acceptances for the Queen Of The Turf Stakes, but they are full of quality with dual Group 1 winning filly Global Glamour and Group 1 All Aged Stakes winner English who resumed for the Autumn with a first up win in the Group 2 $500,000 Hyland Race Colours Challenge Stakes (1000m) at Randwick last Saturday.

Other notable first acceptors for the Queen Of The Turf Stakes are the Lindsay Park trained Harlow Gold and Rising Romance, Ron Quinton’s Dixie Blossoms, Dansih Twist from the Kris Lees stable, John Thompson’s Group 1 winner First Seal, Myer Classic winner I Am A Star and Melbourne mare Silent Sedition.
