Can Valley Specialist Rekindled Interest Win 2012 Cox Plate?

Normally a Cox Plate placegetter backing up for their second crack at the title would receive plenty of interest but there’s been little hype about Rekindled Interest heading into Saturday’s 2012 Cox Plate.

Rekindled Interest

Rekindled Interest will be out to go one better in the Cox Plate after placing last year

This is partly due to his indifferent form in the lead-up to Australia’s premier weight-for-age race but it is common knowledge that Rekindled Interest is a different proposition when he gets to the valley.

The five-year-old son of Redoute’s Choice glides around the tight corners at Moonee Valley making it a no-brainer for trainer Jim Conlan to again throw him into the pressure cooker environment of the Cox Plate.

Not sold that the Valley will rekindle this talented gelding’s spark and get him into the winner’s circle? Need more info? Keep reading as we have compiled a comprehensive run down of the stats that matter as well as the pros and cons of Rekindled Interest’s chances in the Cox Plate.
