Trainer Chris Waller has revealed that Winx will head towards the 2015 Epsom Handicap after she returns to the races in the Group 2 Theo Marks Stakes (1300m) at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday.

Winx stamped herself as a stayer to watch when she finished second in the Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m) at Royal Randwick on April 11 and scored a dominant victory in the Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) at Doomben on May 30, but Waller made the surprise decision not to include her in the first acceptances for the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) that were released earlier in the week.

Waller said that Winx have proven that she can run out a strong 2400 metres, but he is happy to keep her to shorter trips during the 2015 Spring Racing Carnival and he indicated that she will be an excellent chance in the Epsom Handicap.

“She is a better horse than (in the autumn) she was then,” Waller said.

“She gets 2400, but I reckon she will get a mile in the Epsom.”

Winx stamped herself as a horse to watch when she scored an upset win over Earthquake in the Group 2 Furious Stakes (1200m) at Royal Randwick on September 6 last year and she was only denied by First Seal in both the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) at Royal Randwick on September 20 and the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) at the same venue on October 4.

Waller is confident that she is a much better horse than she was 12 months ago and he believes that the daughter of Street Cry can start her 2015 Spring Racing Carnival campaign with a win in the 2015 Theo Marks Stakes this weekend.

“She has come back terrific and she is a good horse,” Waller said.

“I know that she only beat Queensland horses, but I just think that she has a bit more than that.

“She was a length off First Seal, who I thought was one of the best horses in Australia in the first part of last year and I reckon Winx has got to that level now herself.

“We will see that this preparation and she is a fair dinkum horse.”

Winx is currently available at 2015 Theo Marks Stakes odds of $4 with Ladbrokes and she is favourite from the well-backed Vashka ($4.80), Team Hawkes-trained Messene ($6), the resuming Strawberry Boy ($9), Queen Of The Turf Stakes winner Amanpour ($12) and the consistent Ninth Legion ($12).

    First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a
    quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your
    mind before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts
    out there. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Many thanks!

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism
    or copyright violation? My website has a lot of unique
    content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot
    of it is popping it up all over the web without my
    agreement. Do you know any methods to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    At this time it sounds like WordPress is the top blogging platform out there right now.

    using on your blog?

    I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for
    me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made
    good content as you did, the internet will be much more
    useful than ever before.
