Humidor Outpoints Winx

Tuesday, 31st October 2017

Racing Victoria chief handicapper Greg Carpenter has revealed that, quite surprisingly, Humidor was the highest rating horse in last weekend's Cox Plate. "To explain it, Humidor gave Winx 2kg on Saturday, and the margin was only half a length which, at 2000m, is one rating point," Carpenter explained to racing.com. "So really, Humidor comes out of this Cox Plate with a higher rating on the day than Winx did." Carpenter continued: "For me, he ran 122 when he won the Makybe Diva [Gr1]. He's back to that sort of form." Humidor has been allocated 56kg in the Melbourne Cup.
