TAB has opened Winx as the $1.15 favorite for Saturday’s Caulfield Stakes where the super mare will have only two challengers as she bids for her 12th consecutive victory.

Black Heart Bart ($5.50) and He Or She ($21) round out the field.

“Winx is expected to win her final race before she attempts to defend her Cox Plate crown, she was popular earlier in the week at $1.20 and is now $1.15,” says TAB’s Nick Quinn.

The Caulfield Guineas looks to be a battle of two between Impending ($4.40) and Divine Prophet ($4.80) despite Sacred Elixir ($6.50) being the best backed, while Foxplay is the clear favorite for the Thousand Guineas, in from $2.70 to $2.60.

Missrock has been well supported in the Thousand Guineas with 24% of the invested money while there has also been support for outsiders Leotie and Sebring Dream.

“Chris Waller looks to have a mortgage on the Caulfield Stakes with Winx in action, but his emerging star filly Foxplay is attracting just as much money and has been backed from $2.70 into $2.60 since the barrier draw as she looks to maintain her unbeaten record this campaign,” says Quinn.

In Saturday’s other Grp 1 races, Prized Icon ($3.50) is favorite for the Spring Champion Stakes while $4.00 favourite He’s Our Rokkii has attracted the most money for the Toorak Handicap. prices
