2010 Cox Plate Final Field & Barrier Draw

Today Racing Victoria released the 2010 Cox Plate final field of acceptors with 10 weight-for-age stars set to contest the $3 million feature at Moonee Valley this Saturday.

Leading the Cox Plate acceptances and betting markets this year is reigning champion So You Think.

High Chaparral four-year-old So You Think is the hot favourite to make it back-to-back Cox Plate wins this Saturday, further shortening in the odds after drawing ideally in barrier five.

So You Think is so favoured that leading online bookmaker Sportsbet Paid out All Early Bets on So You Think to Win the 2010 Cox Plate.

Ladbrokes.com.au also have So You Think installed as the clear favourite to take out the coveted Cox Plate / Melbourne Cup double paying $6.50 for the Bart Cummings-trained champ.

Coming off three spring wins including their emphatic last start victory in the Group 1 Yalumba Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield where he ran his rivals ragged, So You Think has been basically unchallenged this season.

The only other runner in the Cox Plate field that has had money come in for them is Gai Waterhouse’s glamour mare More Joyous.

Also drawn well in barrier three, More Than Ready four-year-old More Joyous also comes into the Cox Plate on Saturday having won her past three starts, most recently in the Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m) where she handled her debut Melbourne run with ease.

The lightweight of the field with just 55.5kg, More Joyous looks to be So You Think’s biggest threat and her inside gate will allow jockey Nash Rawiller to take her to the front early and set the pace if that’s the tactic Gai decides upon.

Other notable starters in the 2010 Cox Plate are Lloyd Williams’ veteran galloper Zipping who took out the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) at Flemington last start, the Mark Kavanagh-trained Whobegotyou beaten by So You Think in the Yalumba and Queensland champion Shoot Out.

While two time Cox Plate placegetter Zipping is drawn well in barrier six, due to start beside So You Think, Whobegotyou and Shoot Out both suffered a blow drawing outside gates 10 and nine respectively.

Shoot Out is one of two Queensland runners seeking Cox Plate glory, the other being Captain Sonador in barrier eight, another runner coming off a Group 1 win in the Epsom Handicap (1600m).

Two internationals will line-up in this year’s Cox Plate with Macau gelding Luen Yat Forever in barrier two, who ran an eye-catching fourth to More Joyous in their maiden Australian run last start, and New Zealand’s star Wall Street.

A reshuffle of the Cox Plate odds is underway and the new markets are due to open at Ladbrokes.com.au shortly, so take the time now to open an account with Australia’s favourite online bookie to get in on the Cox Plate action!

*Update: A change of jockey’s is scheduled for Shoot Out in the Cox Plate after Stathi Katsidis was found dead on Tuesday morning.
