Worth $750,000 and run over 1400 metres, this event was given Group One status in 2018 along with a name change (ex Warwick Stakes) with the superstar mare Winx appropriately taking out the 2018 edition by two lengths.

At $2.80 with RealBookie, Anamoe heads the betting for the 2022 Winx Stakes.

Winx Stakes 2022 Tips

Winx Stakes 2022 Best Bet - Anamoe

This star Godolphin entire won first-up last spring, en route to an unlucky Golden Rose bid and it was a savage on-pace bias that cost him fresh in Jan.

Resuming at 1400m with two trials under his belt, as opposed to one in prior campaigns, Anamoe has a much stronger grounding for this return.

There still isn't an open age Group 1 win on his stallion's resume, so despite there being later targets, there's certainly an incentive to win this.

The early speed influences (Forbidden Love, Hinged and Profondo) all draw middle/outside lanes, which allows J-Mac to use gate one early.

Winx Stakes 2022 Value Bet - Profondo

While he was disappointing in a short autumn campaign, I'm happy to forgive that for now and it's a positive that he was put away after the Rosehill Guineas.

Profondo was on the back foot to start that prep, contesting an Australian Guineas first-up in early March, where he covered ground as a beaten fav.

Following his brilliant first prep, which culminated in a Spring Champion triumph at start three, he was expected to be Anamoe's main autumn threat.

Both trials leading into this return have been strong and suited by a middle draw with no speed to his inside, he looks the forgotten horse here.

Winx Stakes 2022 Roughie - Hilal

As seemingly one of the more progressive runners in the Missile Stakes, there was early money for this four-year-old prior to that Aug 6 resumption.

Despite looking quite forward in a lead-up trial, it was a bizarre performance from Hilal, who was beaten for early speed and chasing a long way out.

Once he finally balanced up, the last 100m was easily the best part of that effort and simply, he may have just found the six-furlongs too slick.

It wasn't a dissimilar run to the Feb return and he followed that with a second to Anamoe over this track/trip, where he was in the worst going.
