See below for last year’s nominations:



Last year’s 4th placegetter Avilius heads the list of nominations and returns as a seven-year-old following two soft barrier trials where he finished 4th of four and 10th of 10.

Leading trainer Chris Waller has nominated six of his stable stars including Funstar, Imaging, Kolding, Mister Sea Wolf, Star Of The Seas and Verry Elleegant.

15 of the 20 entries are yet to race this spring, while the James Cummings-trained Flit and Chris Waller’s Imaging come of 2nd and 3rd placings respectively in the Group 2 Missile Stakes (1200m).

The Steve Tregea-prepared Niccanova also comes off back-to-back runner-up efforts at Doomben and Eagle Farm.

The final field and barrier draw for the 2020 Winx Stakes will be declared after 9:00am on Wednesday, August 19.
