Inside Sport - - PUB DEBATE -

Time for the thor­ough­breds to stamp their hooves again upon the na­tional con­scious­ness. The Caulfield Cup (Oct 21) has Hart­nell as early favourite, rather than serv­ing as a foil to su­per­star Winx (above) like last year. And as it would hap­pen, the mighty mare is chas­ing a his­toric third straight win in the Cox Plate (Oct

28), a sta­tus held alone by Kingston Town. Vic­tory would also see Winx sur­pass Makybe Diva as the high­est prize­money earner in Aus­trala­sia, which should draw ex­tra ažen­tion to Moonee Val­ley. But when it comes to eye­balls, the Mel­bourne

Cup (Nov 7) re­mains supreme, and it will be in­ter­est­ing to see if top-weight Ir­ish stayer Order of St Ge­orge makes the trip to Flem­ing­ton.
