Can Sincero Overcome the Odds in 2012 Cox Plate?

Can Sincero Overcome the Odds in 2012 Cox Plate?

Wyong trainer Stephen Farley will saddle up Sincero for a second attempt at the Cox Plate after the talented gelding finished ninth last year.


Sincero has been set all year for the Cox Plate

Farley believes he has learnt plenty since last year and his stable star heads into the race with strong form behind him having won the Memsie Stakes, finished fifth in the Underwood Stakes and third in the Caulfield Stakes.

“Last year was a very big learning curve for both the horse and myself, he came off a long campaign through the Brisbane and Sydney carnival,” Farley said.

“This year we’ve just focused on the one race and that’s been the focus all the way.”

Sincero is a $31.00 chance to redeem himself this year and to help you work out whether he can overcome the odds we have compiled the key stats as well as the pros and cons surrounding his Cox Plate endeavour.
