A star-studded trial field topped by the world’s best racehorse Winx has been compiled for Rosehill on Monday.

The superstar is down to trial ahead of her first-up bid in the Group 1 Winx Stakes (1400m) on August 18, and she’s surrounded by quality on Monday too.

Chautauqua still needs to get his barrier ticket after passing the first hurdle with a successful Flemington jump-out last week, and the Hawkes Racing-trained star is in the 900-metre trial to be conducted on Rosehill’s course proper.

The Group and Listed Trial field, set to jump at 8:15am Monday:

Ace High (David Payne)
Chautauqua (Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes)
Classic Uniform (Gary Moore)
D’Argento (Chris Waller)
Dothraki (Peter & Paul Snowden)
Kementari (James Cummings)
She Will Reign (Gary Portelli)
Takedown (Gary Moore)
Unforgotten (Chris Waller)
Winx (Chris Waller)

In the field are eight Group 1 winners with 32 victories at the top level among them – Winx’s 18 and Chautauqua’s six the major contributors to that statistic. She Will Reign and Ace High are the other multiple G1 winners going around with two each.

Ahead of her resuming trial ahead of the spring, trainer Chris Waller posted some vision of the heroine of world racing undergoing some physio this week.
