We are not too sure what more races.com.au can do for a punter after pointing out the virtues of God Has Spoken in Saturday’s 2011 C B Cox Stakes (2100m) at Ascot.
Those who took the hint hopefully picked up the $21 Luxbet generously offered.
Trainer Neville Parnham worked the same wonders on God Has Spoken as he did with younger brother Playing God in the Group 1 Kingston Town Stakes a fortnight ago.
Beach work and a myriad of gear changes turned God Has Spoken from an also ran into the Group 2 2011 C B Cox Stakes winner.
Jockey Steven Parnham, son of Neville, had the son of Blackfriars–Dolly Will Do settled fifth in a quickly run race.
Those two stole a four length break on the field at the half way mark with Luxbet $1.80 favourite Ranger back near the tail.
Ranger was giving Mega Steel 12 lengths at the 1000m mark and clearly had its work cut out to become the 2011 C B Cox Stakes winner.
Victorian based jockey Dwayne Dunn aboard Kincaple Luxbet $6 followed God Has Spoken every step.
When Parnham made a move rounding the turn, Dunn tried to tack on but the rejuvenated God Has Spoken dashed clear half way up the straight.
It opened a three length break at the 200m and held on to beat Kincaple in the 2011 C B Cox Stakes.
Ranger ran on well for third after being five lengths away from the winner at the 200m mark.
Tranquility Luxbet $9 was up in the top half dozen but failed to sprint when required.
Her effort was a good one for a race like the upcoming Perth Cup and Luxbet obviously agree and have her at $5.50.
