Winx's Queen Elizabeth Stakes win has elevated her to the very top of thoroughbred world rankings.

Winx is officially the best horse in the world with her Queen Elizabeth Stakes win improving her rating to 130, one point clear of star American galloper Gun Runner.

In previous rankings Winx has had to share the top place with dirt specialists Arrogate and then Gun Runner but she has been the best horse on turf for the past two years, sharing that spot initially with champion European colt Almansour.

This year Winx has had three starts, all at Group One level, and her Queen Elizabeth win took her record to 18 at the highest level and her unbeaten streak to 25.

Doncaster Mile winner Happy Clapper and three-year-old Trapeze Artist, winner of the TJ Smith and All Aged Stakes, are sixth equal on 123.
