Wonder mare Winx wowed the world with her easy Cox Plate triumph at Moonee Valley late in October.

The man sent to Australia to tend to one of Winx's two European rivals in the Cox Plate said she only has to "go down to the start, turn around and come back" to almost be assured of a historic win at Moonee Valley.

Many leading European stables now rely on locally based riders for their big-race raiders when they come to Australia, but Godolphin is an exception.

16 October 2018 9:00 AM Goodwin out to prove Adelaide was the right call against Sydney FC

Craig Goodwin's time is now. After turning down an offer from Sydney FC in the off-season to return to Adelaide United, the lanky left-footer knows he has to dominate the A-League to cement himself as one of the country's best attacking players and realise his burning Socceroos ambitions. Sky Blues fans will be seeing a lot of Goodwin over the next couple 21

Saturday will, says O'Brien's Werribee-based foreman TJ Comerford, be a fork in the road for the three and will determine whether they are up to competing in group 1 company in races like the Manikato Stakes at The Valley on Cox Plate eve or in the VRC Sprint down the Flemington straight on Stakes Day at the end of the Cup week carnival. The trio were all popped 22
