Winx draws perfect barrier for tilt at defending Cox Plate crown

Cox Plate favourite Winx has had the first win ahead of Saturday’s much-anticipated clash with Hartnell.

The defending champ has drawn perfectly, securing barrier 3 for Australia’s premier weight-for-age race at Moonee Valley.

Hartnell will start from gate 7.

French raider Vadamos (barrier 2) has also drawn well.

Winx will now almost certainly start favourite in Saturday’s $3 million race.

Meanwhile, hot favourite Chautauqua has drawn awkwardly in Friday night’s Group 1 Manikato Stakes.

The star sprinter will start from barrier 1.
