The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACING - BRAD DAVID­SON

GREG Ben­nett, in no rush to make his next move, is un­sure whether he will re­turn to train­ing.

The for­mer Scone trainer in April be­came di­rec­tor of race­horse de­vel­op­ment with Aquis Farm in Queens­land but Aquis con­firmed last week Ben­nett has left “due to per­sonal and fam­ily rea­sons”. Ben­nett did not wish to com­ment about his de­par­ture yes­ter­day but said he would take time out to pon­der his next move.

“I’m go­ing to stay here for a while (in Queens­land) and just see what comes to me, whether any­thing does come to me or whether I have to go look­ing,” he told At The Track yes­ter­day. “Most likely we will prob­a­bly jump on a plane and go visit our son in New York and have a bit of time over there with him as we haven’t seen him for 12 months.’’ WINX will re­turn to Chris Waller’s sta­bles this week to pre­pare for a tilt at a third con­sec­u­tive Cox Plate.

Waller said the Group 2 War­wick Stakes (1400m) at Rand­wick on Au­gust 19 will most likely be Winx’s first-up as­sign­ment. He has worked an extra race into Winx’s spring cam­paign again this year so the mare can miss one race this prepa­ra­tion if there is a real heavy track or for other rea­sons. THE Daily Tele­graph’s Steve Zam­mit had a day out at Rose­hill, tip­ping six of the nine win­ners.
