Royal Symphony, Gailo Chop, Happy Clapper, Seaburge, and Hardham completed the field.

Oliver said he thought Yendall was headed to the fence in the early stages of the race.

In the spring of 2016, Oliver took his appeal for the Flying Artie suspension even further after being knocked back by the RAD Board - going to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal - but failed to overturn it. It's been such a build-up and I'm lost for words.

But despite Winx's incredible performance, one record she has yet to beat is the fastest time on the 2040m sprint.

Her trainer has been preparing for the day Winx gets beaten and for a couple of seconds at Moonee Valley it seemed he might need to steel himself.

Thousand Guineas victor Aloisia turned in an astonishing performance to win the Vase by three-and-a-half lengths, with the TAB immediately firming him into $1.70 Oaks favourite.

"She finds a way to win like all champions do". He firmed from $61 into $34 for the Cup.

The six-year-old notched her 22nd victory in a row with jockey Hugh Bowman delivering yet another stellar ride atop the crown jewel of Australian racing, with a narrow win over a gallant Humidor, who came close to running down the champ, and Folkswood back in third. But we are in the presence of greatness. There were obviously moments of concern down the straight, but she's Winx and she finds a way to win like all champions do.

Weir was then asked whether he was feeling elation or disappointment after Humidor's courageous effort to go under by a long neck in a race that will down in history. So along that sequence I have never gone into a race saying we will win today, because you always have to respect what happens on a racetrack.

"We were very disappointed after the Caulfield Cup because he was ridden forward and he only whacked away to the finish, " Weir said.

The winning ride went to Kerrin McEvoy.

"Everything helped him today".
