It was Winx back to her brilliant best in Group 2 $250,000 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) in front of a huge adoring crowd. But she had to do some serious work down the home straight.
Jockey Hugh Bowman and Winx settled fifth after she jumped from barrier three of 12.

Seriously what a race the Chelmsford. Obvious accolades for Winx but what about Red Excitement and @JoshuaParr8 Superb ride in front !!— Andrew Bensley (@AndrewBensley) September 2, 2017
What was going through Chris Waller's mind at the 400m mark? Greg Radley caught up with champion trainer post race.#GoWinx pic.twitter.com/YOJLDHsnX2— Sky Racing (@SkyRacingAU) September 2, 2017
The champion was still six lengths adrift of Red Excitment at the 200m but she found a way to register a thrilling win.
The victory was her 23rd career success and continues an unbeaten streak that has remarkably stretched more than two years.
