Punter's Intel Wrap - Randwick 16th September

Any doubts about the dominance of Winx this spring can be well and truly cast aside looking at the Punter’s Intel data from her win in the George Main Stakes.

Just as she did in the Chelmsford, Winx conceded a big head start – this time she was 22m off the leader Red Excitement at the 1000m and still 20.9m astern at the 600m.

But from there she almost broke the clock, running 11.11, 10.99 and 11.45 for her final three splits for a last 600m of 33.55 seconds. Also worth noting she covered 1609.7m!

Kudos to runner-up Happy Clapper who would win most top level mile races with his 34.05 final 600m but Winx is just in another league.

Speaking of breaking the clock, what about the grey flash Chautauqua!

Like Winx, he was 21m from the lead at one point in The Shorts – about the 850m mark of an 1100m dash which was run in track record time.

So for Chautauqua to win was almost impossible from where he sat but he powered down the outside in a 32.09 second last 600m and was the only horse to break 11 seconds for the final 200m (10.84) of the race.

There was plenty of merit in the performances of English (4th) and Fell Swoop (6th), also Everest contenders, as they covered the most ground in the race and still finished off in 32.79 and 32.61 respectively.

A couple of performances from the Bill Ritchie are well worth remembering.

Pajaro was some 18m off the leader at the 800m of the 1400m event but went down by about half a length (1m) after a 33.30 last 600m (easily the best of the race) including 10.84 from the 400m to the 200m.

New Tipperary beat one home in the race but his times suggest he’s come back in good order. His final 600m of 33.42 was second only to Pajaro and he reeled off two sub-11 second 200m splits on end.

Fastest last 200m: 10.84 (Chautauqua)

Most ground covered: Shalmaneser (+12.1m); Antonio Giuseppe (+11.5m)
