Red Excitement will also contest the Colgate Optic White Stakes after throwing down the gauntlet to Winx when attempting to lead throughout in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes a fortnight ago.

He is fourth favourite at $21.

Happy Clapper and Foxplay are considered the main dangers to Winx, quoted at $13 and 15 respectively.

Colgate Optic White Stakes 3U , 1600m
Race Synopsis: Winx put up another phenomenal performance in winning here – her 20th successive win and her 13th Group One victory. She was a bit slow to move, settled back in sixth place, behind a strong tempo (leaders running first 1000m in 58.69). Hugh Bowman asked her to improve nearing the 600m, where she was conceding the leader (Red Excitement) eight lengths. She responded to riding from the 300m, dashed to the front at the 100m and then drew clear for another amazing win - plus in the fast time of 1:33.65. Happy Clapper was back in fifth place at the 600m, some six lengths from the leader. He moved up well to take the lead at the lead at the 200m, and then fought gamely for second, staging a top-class effort against a champion. Foxplay had a good run in fourth place, improved from the 300m, and then kept battling on really well to take a most respectable third.
