This certainly does explain why mares have not had the same success in England that they have had in Australia..
Mares have really dominated the Arc over the last 10 or so years so I'm wondering if France is one of the countries in Europe where altrenogest is permitted.
Also I notice that Waller has changed his mind about Unforgotten going to Melbourne this week end and has accepted against Winx.
I'm thinking with the rules as they are maybe Winx might not be such an absolute certainty in the Cox Plate. After all we know Black Caviar raced well below her best when she was off the gear in the UK.
As for Moody feigning not knowing that it has been helping mares beat the males in Australia - yeah right.
