Jimmy Choux comes into the 2011 Cox Plate as the second favourite but an easing second favourite as punters get the jitters only a day out from the event.
It all comes on the back of one track gallop on Tuesday where Jimmy Choux was visibly inferior to partner Rekindled Interest.
As a result the money has poured in for Rekindled Interest and Jimmy Choux has barely fielded a bet for the 2011 Cox Plate.
Trainer John Bary though isn’t concerned in the slightest and earlier today he spoke about juts how happy he was with the horse.
In terms of Tuesday’s gallop he says he simply wasn’t pushing the horse at all and he will be as good as ever coming into tomorrow.
Jimmy Choux will have his first Australian run of the prep in the Cox Plate after running three times back in New Zealand.
His first run was very good working late to run second to King Mufhasa.
His next two have been all about him, winning both and building some serious momentum into the 2011 Cox Plate.
The connections made the bold call after he ran second first up that he wouldn’t be beaten again up to and including the Cox Plate and so far it’s hard to argue with them.
On that basis then punters face an interesting proposition leading into the 2011 Cox Plate.
Do they go off the trainers assessment and that of his recent form or do they look at the evidence he displayed at track work.
Either way you can guarantee he won’t be a complete bomb out, the fact is Bary has focussed on this race since the end of the autumn and he knows how to make them win first up in Australia.
As he continues to drift in the markets he could be a great proposition, especially at online bookmaker Luxbet where they seem more than willing to take him on.
