2020 Cox Plate Racing Tips - Will Lys Gracieux go back-to-back?

The 2020 Cox Plate looms again as one of the most competitive we have seen with racing experts unsure of what this field could look like with a question over internationals attending..

Moonee Valley may see another superstar line up of horses from not just Australia, but around the world if the Covid-19 situation improves.

Cox Plate Best Bet - Magic Wand @ $31

Last years fourth place getter is expected to make her way back to Australia is the Coivd situation allows the international travel.

She lead at a break neck speed, setting the race up for the first three home who relished the trip and pace.

This year, quieter tactics would be expected with her now being acustomed to the course and not having to try and 'beat' a horse in paricualr.

Her Mackinnon win was ultra impressive, so a repeat performance of that sees her as a single figure chance, not a $31 hope.

Cox Plate Value Bet - Mystic Journey @ $26

Another runner from last years race is set to run again after impressing in her one run last time in.

She ran in the William Reid Stakes over 1200m, a totally unsuitable trip, yet stormed home in what was one of the most eye-catching performances of the evening.

She was an early favourite for last years race, but her form died off a little during the preparation, but she looks stronger than ever and ready to return to the races very soon.

The mile is clearly her pet distance but she finished fifth in last years race, so she could well sneak into a placing this year.
