Can Shoot Out Fire in 2012 Cox Plate?

In a star-studded 2012 Cox Plate field, multiple Group 1 winner Shoot Out has become a somewhat forgotten runner.

Shoot Out

Shoot Out is not without a chance in the Cox Plate

The Chris Waller-trained gelding is going around at $21.00 in the Cox Plate market in what is the longest price he has run at in recent times.

The big price is partly due to a below-par Epsom Handicap performance where he finished seventh but he is a proven weight-for-age performer and is not without a chance this weekend.

Nobody can deny his record of nine wins from 31 starts and more than $2.8 million in prizemoney but does Shoot Out have the brilliance to win the Cox Plate?

Keep reading for the stats that matter as well as the pros and cons about Shoot Out in this Saturday’s $3 million Moonee Valley feature.
