Helmet’s Impeccable Form Could Hand Him 2011 Cox Plate Win


Helmet is in top form coming into the Cox Plate 2011

With Helmet currently the favourite to take out this Saturday’s Cox Plate2011, we have delved into his form to try and help you understand what his winning chances actually are for the weight-for-age championship.

Helmet is the only three-year-old in the race and in being so has the lightest weight allocation of 49.5 kilograms.

This, coupled with Helmet’s devastating wins in his last two starts, has propelled the Exceed And Excel colt into $3.40 Cox Plate favouritism at Luxbet.

Helmet has moved from barrier 11 to 10 for Saturday’s Cox Plate, thanks to today’s scratching of Gai Waterhouse’s Descarado, but the gate is still a hindrance to Helmet’s usual leading style.

Below we have examined Helmet’s current form and his chances of winning the $3 million Cox Plate this weekend.
