Randwick Race 7: The Star 150th Epsom 1600m

2/10/2015: Winx is a top class mare with a powerhouse finish and given a level playing field here should have her combatants measure and add another Group 1 trophy to Chris Waller's already burgeoning trophy cabinet. Winx is proven at this level and has a good record this distance. This 4yo mare produced her customary barnstorming finish to grab a first up victory in the Group 2 Theo Marks 3 weeks back at Rosehill. Goes well 2nd up and only needs clear sailing down the outside to win this. Waller looks a big chance to quinella the event with the very much in form Sadler's Lake who despite rising in class will be looking 3 on the trot and remain unbeaten since returning from spell. This gelding has a strong record over the mile and equally strong record here at Randwick. Entirely Platinum ran a superb 3rd last time out at this level in the Makybe Diva at Flemington and should be nearing peak fitness at 3rd run back. Has to overcome awkward draw but with any luck should play a hand. Lucia Valentina needs wet ground to produce best and hasn't won since this weekend last year, but that win at Flemington was in fact on good ground. Should be running on as usual. Rudy is another whose best is on affected ground but is still capable on firm ground. Has strong record this distance and shouldn't be too far off them.

PACE COMMENTS Unlike the previous event there's an abundance of top end pressure in this event with the 3 nominated front runners and the 3 nominated on pace runners. Dominant favourite Winx is a backmarker but should be not be disadvantaged by what looks to be genuine and may even turn out to be a fast overall tempo, particularly if Entirely Platinum pushes strongly from wide out, with other pair trying to maintain the rails running which will further enhance Winx's chances. Sadler's Lake is well in market contention and should end up getting a charmed passage from gate 3.
