Following the impressive victory of Bonneval Horseform in Saturday’s Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes (Gr 2, 1600m) at Moonee Valley, co-trainer Andrew Forsman said the dual Oaks winner could challenge superstar Winx Horseform in the Cox Plate (Gr 1, 2040m) at the same track on 28 October.

"She doesn't have to run in a Caulfield Cup," Forsman said.


"She's going to have a run at Caulfield before then and the only thing I'd say about Caulfield is that it might be a bit of an awkward track for her to get back and get balanced up on.

"She certainly handled The Valley very well.

"There's no disgrace in running second or third in a Cox Plate so if she's goes to Caulfield and she doesn't get around that well, it gives us that option.”
