Hi Guys
I just wanted to see what is your guys opinions on winx running in this years melbourne cup.
Do you think she will be in it?.
Or is the distance to far for her and  that will get her.Do you guys think it is important for winx to stay underfeated this season.And they would worry about her not running a place.

If she runs in the Melbourne Cup I'll run 10 laps of Flemington naked on Mackinnon Stakes Day.  And I'm not an attractive man nor much chop past 50 metres so they'll have to call Greenpeace when I beach myself in the straight.

Maybe if they shorten the race for her and makes it WFA over 2000 she'll run it.

Interesting that she's in the betting for the race. I agree with others that she won't run in it. That said, I wish she would run. It would add more interest in the race.

Perhaps if she was not on this wonderful winning streak they would give it some thought.

She's had two runs beyond 2000m. Bolted in with the Qld Oaks and 2nd in ATC Oaks on a terribly biased track when in the worst going.

She would certainly get the weight of Order Of St George down to a level that would encourage him to run.

Weak field this year, rumours circulating she is going to be a late nomination

Let me put it this way Shawy. No.

However having said that judging on the form and runs of the runners nominated for the cup this year, I would think she would be as good a chance as Kingston Town was in his effort in 1982.

The only difference is that he had already won at 3200m and she has not won beyond 2200m.

And that is the reason why the Black Prince is still the better horse, and always will be!

A rumour you've just started presumably Shawy? In case someone naive rushes in to lose his/her money Waller has made it clear what her race distance limits will be.
