Punters Intel Wrap - Randwick 17th February

It might have been a trial but Winx had all her powers on display in a rousing 1200m gallop captured by Punters Intel for dissection.

And there’s plenty to look at.

Much has been made of the overall time in the trial (1:10.30) compared to the main open class sprint won by Kaepernick (1:10.53) but it has to be remembered that Winx’s ‘race’ was run under ideal conditions.

The Southern Cross Stakes, on the other hand, was not. There was little to no speed and plenty of traffic jams, we’ll get to that race later.

Winx clocked easily the fastest sectionals from the 600m when Hugh Bowman asked her to move and she sailed home in 33.50 which was many lengths better than anything else on the day under race conditions. The official last 600m (leader to winner) was 34.31.

She broke 11 seconds from the 400m-200m (10.95) and didn’t really let up to the finish running 11.43 home.

It must be remembered that Mackintosh burned early on, his first three sectionals to the 600m were significantly faster than his five companions.

Away from Winx, and the stayer Libran suggested he’s in for a nice autumn campaign by running the second fastest last 600m of 34.62 and last 200m in 11.88.

Brad Gray and Brad Davidson will discuss Winx’s performance in detail on Punters Intel on Sky Thoroughbred Central this Tuesday at 7pm.

The one horse to come out of the Southern Cross Stakes with flashing lights was the luckless Clearly Innocent.

But his last 600m is no guide to his performance, he ran 34.65 but was going backwards for much of it. He was the only horse to break 12 seconds for the last 200m slipping home in 11.88.

The first 400m of the Apollo Stakes (1400m) was crucial in deciding the outcome, that’s because Global Glamour had to work overtime to find the lead.

Her 1200m-1000m was a burning 10.40 so she was entitled to knock up in the concluding stages, but in true fashion kept fighting.

Third placed Comin’ Through clocked the fastest last 200m of the race in 12.41 with Prized Icon finishing in tandem running 12.42.

One more to highlight is Frolic, who ran out of her skin first-up for almost a year in the Light Fingers Stakes (1200m).

She conceded plenty of start but ran the fastest last 600m of the race in 35 seconds, an 11.33 from 600m-400m and 11.31 400m-200m were also the quickest before she just tired late running 12.36 home.

It’ll be interesting to see what improvement she can take out of that performance.

Fastest last 600m: Zestful 33.86

Most ground covered: Quick Defence +10.4m
