SHE’S the mighty mare that stops the nation.

And all eyes will be on Moonee Valley at 5pm EDT on Saturday as Winx goes for her 29th straight victory, and fourth consecutive Cox Plate win.

A win in the $5 million weight-for-age event would add only more majesty to Winx’ stature as a living legend. You can watch it live on Racing.com, Sky Racing or Channel 7,

The biggest bet ever laid on Winx has landed, with one punter placing $201,200 at $1.22 to win $44,264 at 10:25am this morning.

It’s the same bettor who has backed Winx in 11 straight races, making $153,637.50 profit from around $1.2 million in bets.

But if Winx was to lose the Cox Plate today suddenly the punter will be in the red overall.

The bet surpasses the previous record, set by the same punter, of $170,000 at $1.16 in the Turnbull Stakes last start.

Winx’ win odds of $1.22 did not move at all following the massive bet.

The weather does not look like being an issue today, with no showers predicted in the inner northwest suburbs of Melbourne.

Playing the role of spoiler could be Benbatl, who while not at the calibre of the best horse in the world, is rated at 123 compared to Winx’s 130 – the highest-rated opponent she has faced this spring.

The five-year-old Godolphin star is joined in the field by Humidor, who last year nearly spoiled Winx’s hat-trick.

The Cox Plate will be the ninth race of the day at Moonee Valley.
