2021 Cox Plate Tips

Cox Plate 2021 Best Bet - Chrono Genesis

I has requested for this mare to be added to the market, and when it is approved, she will be right up there in betting.

We have seen Japan bring over a horse with similar ability to this mare in Lys Gracieux, a horse who became the worlds best after winning this race.

She has since come back and been unlucky not to win the Tenno Sho, where she was back in the field while Almond Eye had a 10 length lead on her. 

Rocketting to the line, she looks set for an international campaign once their horses are allowed to leave the country.

Cox Plate 2021 Next Best Bet - English King

Being sold from Europe to Australia, this Colt will join the Mike Moroney stables in January and be set for some of our great races.

This horse profiles very similar to Anthony Van Dyck and Sir Dragonet, two horses who have showed how good there were/are in Australia.

Sir Dragonet took out the Cox Plate after running a close fifth in the Epsom Derby and showing his potential on the English circuit.

English King started a second favourite in this year's Epsom Derby, running on behind Serpentine and was short in the market.

Expect a Cox Plate to be his ultimate goal.

Cox Plate 2021 Value Bet - Verry Elleegant

She will now be handicapped out of the likes of a Caufield Cup and Melbourne Cup, so this Cox Plate would be the logical target.

She has proven that she is the best mare in Australia, taking out three Group one races during the spring, including the Caulfield Cup where she best Anthony Van Dyck.

She is tough and tenacious, and having already run in a Cox Plate, she is acustomed to Moonee Valley.

Expect a big Autumn prep before an attack on the Melbourne Spring Carnival once again.
