On Saturday Winx will be chasing her 22nd straight win when she heads to the Valley for a chance at a third win in a row in the Cox Plate.

Winx trainer, Chris Waller reckons the champion mare is at her peak in form and fitness as she prepares for the Cox Plate. But as usual Waller is guarding against complacency as she gets set to equal Kingston Town's Cox Plate hat-trick.
Waller said Winx could not be in better shape for the Cox Plate after watching her go through her final workout at Flemington on Thursday morning.
"Before the Cox Plate last year, we said there needed to be a champion to beat her because she was as good as we could have her," Waller said.
"Nothing has changed going into this year's Cox Plate. Her 'semi-final' run in the Turnbull Stakes was very impressive and although it will be a stronger field (Saturday), her work, the perfect three-week gap between races, it couldn't have been better.
"That to me would suggest she is very well."
Last year Winx won the Cox Plate by an impressive eight lengths. And this year the field for the Cox Plate doesn't seem to have the same level of quality as it did 12 months ago. It would only take bad luck to bring her winning streak to an end.
"With horseracing you never get too far ahead of yourself, we have all seen what can happen in horseracing and in any sport for that matter," Waller said.
"With any animal or any sportsperson you are always a little cautious of what may go wrong, but we know we have got the right horse, great jockey and right race."
