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 if a certain Japanese mare does not make her way over.

Moonee Valley may see a superstar line up of horses from right around the globe, including home-grown talents like Mystic Journey and Castelvecchio, while Lys Gracieux and Almond Eye are the internationals well in the market.

Cox Plate Odds

Almond Eye$5.00

Cox Plate Best Bet - Lys Gracieux @ $6

She was the champion in this years event and all signals after the race said that they will be back in 12 months time to defend their crown.

She won even though she did not handle the track, but still proved to be on a different level to her opposition.

Again, if she makes the trip over, I do not see anything in Australia competing against unless we have a star two-year-old that we are yet to see at the track.

Cox Plate Value Bet - Funstar @ $21

She was impressive in the Flight Stakes at the end of her preparation, toying with what was only a moderate field.

She has an explosive turn of foot and is versatile, so she can be ridden up front or out the back.

Chris Waller looked after this girl by not bringing her down to Melbourne after that Group One win.

If she turns up in the spring as a four-year-old, she will take some beating in this race.
