GROUPIES Spring 2020 round 1


GROUPIES - Spring 2020 round 1 - Winx Stakes

Welcome back to the Groupies tipping competition.

Whilst enduring the trials and tribulations of covid time, I need a reason to be cheerful here in plague ridden Melbourne as I doubt I’ll be going to the races anytime soon.

So it’s great to see Group 1 racing back at the track, the Winx Stakes certainly kicking off the 2020 Spring racing season with a bang.

It has attracted a splendid field of contenders with no less than 9 Group 1 winners in the mix.
