Winx was slow out of the gates in the George Ryder Stakes, but jockey Hugh Bowman did not panic and he allowed her to cruise into the race three wide.

Leebaz took up the running, but within a couple of strides Winx was in front at the top of the straight without even being asked for an extra effort by Bowman.

Le Romain did his best to go with her, but the champion mare was simply phenomenal and she put a seven lengths gap on her George Ryder Stakes rivals to record one of the most impressive wins of her career to date.

Chris Waller was his usual emotional self following the George Ryder Stakes and he was delighted to see his star mare get through the race safely, while continuing to marvel at another peerless performance.

“There was a lot of pressure to bring her and it was good to see her win like that,” Waller said.

“I didn’t expect her to win like that and she is just an amazing horse.

“His only instructions were to keep her safe and that is holding her together.

“Fortunately she races well like that and that is how it is.

“Running them on heavy tracks is a lot harder than good tracks and we have to be mindful of that.

“She doesn’t owe us anything, but Queen Elizabeth is what we want next.

“It is amazing to have a horse that is so well-received.”

Bowman said after the race that he expected there to be more speed in the early stages of the George Ryder Stakes, but he was always confident that Winx had her rivals covered and he believes that the five-year-old is going even better than she did when she won the Cox Plate in empathic fashion last October.

“I feel that she is in the prime of her career and it is just so special to be a part of it,” Bowman said.

“I’ve said a lot of times that being a part of her career brings a great level of responsibility, moreso there any other horse I have experienced.

“With that responsibly comes a great deal of confidence as well and she is just an exceptional mare.

“She has taken all before her and let’s just hope that we still have plenty of time with her.”

Le Romain produced another tough effort to finish second, while Chautauqua made up ground in the concluding stages of the race for third.
