Winx the magnificent mare makes it 22 on the bounce

Winx relaxes before today’s big race

Off at 1-9 in the United States wagering pool, Winx became the all-time Australian leader in Group 1 wins and money earned while joining Kingston Town as the Group 1 Cox plate's only three-time victor.

He watched the race in the quiet of the weighing room and with no perceptible change to his demeanour.

While Waller admits there is pressure associated with a horse like no other, her jockey Hugh Bowman is ever cool even if he is churning inside. She's now delivered me with my only other two. It's been such a build-up and I'm lost for words. She has won nine races this year.

McEvoy, who was striving to win his first Cox Plate, said Folkswood was fearless.

It has been such a build up and they said when we won last year nothing can prepare you for what you are in for next year.

"It's important to note Chris has had her at peak condition both times she's raced here and (today) will be the third". But trying to compare one horse to another, they're all different. Seven horses signed up to race her with Humidor, the 13-1 shot domestically, her toughest challenger.

"To be a part of her career, I can't explain how much that means".

Khloe Kardashian: showing off her baby bump
According to a Daily Mail report , Khloe Kardashian is five months pregnant with Tristan Thompson's child. The 20-year-old reality star has also remained tight-lipped on the issue.

Humidor's trainer Darren Weir has grown his stable over the past five years to be a serious challenger and already has a Melbourne Cup win with Prince Of Penzance in 2015.

Oliver said he thought Yendall was headed to the fence in the early stages of the race.

Any queries about the track favouring leaders was put to bed, with the class of Winx shining through ahead of a very-game Humidor in second position, who got within a half-length of the champion, with Folkswood a space away in third.

"It's a Cox Plate, there's a lot of adrenaline rushing", Oliver told stewards.

"The question is whether he can run the 3200m but we will ride him the same way as today to give him every chance to run it right out".

Weir praised the ride of Blake Shinn saying Damian Lane made the wrong decision in riding the gelding closer to the speed in last week's Caulfield Cup.

Plenty are glad he did not.
