2010 Cox Plate Tip #2 – Get Value in Exotics
With reigning champion So You Think dominating the Cox Plate betting, a good tip is to get in on the extensive range of exotic betting markets available at the online racing bookmakers for more value.
Double betting markets are now open on the Cox Plate / Melbourne Cup combined winners so if you fancy So You Think to win tomorrow but want to back another runner in the Melbourne Cup on the first Tuesday of November, the online bookies have you covered!
There are great odds on combos like So You Think / Shocking or So You Think / Manighar available now at Sportsbet.
Another Cox Plate value bet is the Trifecta. There are nine other classy runners in the 2010 Cox Plate field tomorrow aside from the favourite and with many of them at long odds having been forgotten by the bookies, adding a roughie into a Trifecta with the more favoured runners could see you clean up on Cox Plate Day!
International horses Luen Yat Forever and Wall Street are drawn ideally and coming off solid form making them ideal outsiders to lock into a Cox Plate Trifecta with the likes of So You Think and second-favourite More Joyous.
2010 Cox Plate Tip #3 – Fancy an Upset? Don’t Back a Runner So You Think has Beaten
There are no sure things in racing despite what the bookies are saying. So You Think is the deserved favourite, but he hasn’t won the Cox Plate just yet.
Tomorrow So You Think will face a field featuring many gallopers he has already beaten this spring including Moonee Valley specialist Whobegotyou who ran third to him in the Yalumba Stakes last-start and Queensland galloper Shoot Out who finished third in the Memsie Stakes.
So You Think has been so comprehensive in his wins that it is hard to see these runners turn the table in the Cox Plate.
So if you are a punter that loves an upset and is thinking of backing a roughie tomorrow, head towards the ‘unknown’ runners that are yet to face off against the superstar including in-form veteran Zipping.
There is great value in the 2010 Cox Plate if you take advantage of our tips and the bookies’ offers, so get in on the action now!
