Winx Jockey Decision This Week

Tuesday, 30th January 2018

Chris Waller says a decision about who will replace the suspended Hugh Bowman as the rider of champion mare Winx will be made this week, reports racingnsw.com.au. "Obviously there's a lot of things to think about in replacing Hugh to ride Winx for her next start," Waller said. "We'll probably include Hugh Bowman in the decision as well because obviously there's a lot of pressure involved with the rider of Winx, a lot of expectations." Waller added: "I don't want to put any jockey in that situation that's not comfortable with it. I don't want him or her to think he or she may be the reason she doesn't win...I'm waiting to make a decision in a few days time..." Winx is expected to have the second trial of her preparation at Rosehill on 5 February before kicking off her autumn campaign in the Gr2 Apollo Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on 17 February.
