Super mare Winx will get every chance to stretch her winning run to nineteen after drawing nicely at barrier three in the Group 2 $250,000 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on Saturday.

Winx was able to overcome a slow getaway last start when she scored her eighteenth win on the trot in the Group 2 $250,000 Warwick Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on August 19 and trainer Chris Waller has responded to her tardiness at the start with the addition of ear muffs for the Chelmsford Stakes.

“She will wear ear muffs and with them on it should ensure she jumps on terms with them,” Waller said.

“I want to run her in the Chelmsford so she does everything 100 per cent and that will give her confidence going into the spring.”

“We had the barrier blanket on her earlier in the week and she was fine but Hugh (Bowman) said ‘that’s her’, she is not a dangerous horse.”

“She wears the ear muffs in her trackwork and she works every day in them and it just helps block out the background noise. She wears them at the races and we take them off as soon as she leaves the parade ring (but) she will wear them in the (Chelmsford). It’s simply like wetsuit material. It blocks out 20 per cent of the sound and she will still hear 80 per cent.”

Leading Group 1 jockey Hugh Bowman will take the mount again in the twelve horse Chelmsford Stakes field and hopes that Winx is on her best behaviour in the starting gates this week.

Waller will saddle up half the field in the Chelmsford Stakes and as well as Winx, has Who Shot Thebarman (Christian Reith, barrier 1), Libran (Glyn Schofield, 8), Antonio Giuseppe (Tye Angland, 10, Sarrasin (Michael Walker, 4) and Life Less Ordinary (Kerrin McEvoy, 11).

The James Cummings trained Allergic has drawn the outside gate in the twelve horse field with Tim Clark taking the mount.
