Hugh Bowman riding Winx wins the Chipping Norton Stakes at Royal Randwick

Champion mare Winx is set to return on Saturday and has featured among 13 nominations for the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick.

Having missed her intended first-up run in the Apollo Stakes (1400m) on February 17, the daughter of Street Cry lined up for a 1200m exhibition gallop on the same day where she finished over the top of her rivals under simulated race conditions.

Winx will be aiming for her third successive victory in the Chipping Norton Stakes, a race trainer Chris Waller has dominated in recent time having won six of the past seven renewals.

Waller has also nominated five others with Apollo Stakes winner Endless Drama rating highly, while Comin’ Through, Libran, McCreery and Who Shot Thebarman make up the remainder of the stable’s entries. 

John O’Shea broke Waller’s dominance of the Chipping Norton when Contributer scored in 2015, and he has nominated French-import Berdibek for the $600,000 feature.

The in-form Jemadar has been nominated by trainer David Pfieffer, while Classic Uniform, Lasqueti Spirit, Prized Icon, Stampede and Vinland have also been entered.

1. BERDIBEK (FR) John O'Shea
2. CLASSIC UNIFORM Gary Moore
3. COMIN’ THROUGH Chris Waller
4. ENDLESS DRAMA (IRE) Chris Waller
