The Winx Stakes is the first Group 1 of the new season, a 1400m Standard WFA feature run at Royal Randwick.

This feature received Group 1 status and a name change in 2018 (formely run as the Warwick Stakes), with that first edition taken out by Winx.

Looking to defend his Winx Stakes title from 2021 is two-time Group 1 winner Mo'unga (barrier two), who hasn't won since prevailing in this race 12 months ago.

Early favourite Anamoe (barrier one) resumes off two strong lead-up trials, with champion hoop James McDonald sticking from those.

A now four-year-old entire, Godolphin will be eager to get a open age Group 1 on the resume and he gets a perfect opportunity to achieve that here.

Forbidden Love (barrier 10) didn't have a winning set-up first-up in the Missile Stakes, where she drew wide against out-and-out sprinters, but Rachel King should be able to cross over 1400m against this line-up.

Will it be wet enough for the Freedman mare?

Chris Waller has accepted with both Fangirl (barrier nine) and Hinged (barrier 11), with this pair having filled the quinella of the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes over autumn.

Duais (barrier five) resumes in the Winx Stakes, with the exciting Ed Cummings mare an early favourite for the Caulfield Cup.
