Cox Plate 2012 Betting Update – More Joyous Market Mover

Finally the money is starting to come in for one of the 2012 Cox Plate’s seasoned professionals with champion mare More Joyous the firming market mover for Saturday’s Moonee Valley feature.

More Joyous

More Joyous is the 2012 Cox Plate betting market mover

One of 14 gallopers set to face off in this year’s $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m), More Than Ready six-year-old More Joyous originally opened at a generous $13 to secure her ninth Group 1 win on the weekend.

Over the past couple of days however punters have been doing the Cox Plate form and the statistics are stacking up for Gai Waterhouse’s champion.

As such More Joyous has been the best backed runner in the Cox Plate odds at and is now into $8 and firming by the hour.

Waterhouse was first to pick a barrier for More Joyous at Tuesday’s draw and while there’s been plenty of controversy surrounding her gate 11 selection, it is the gate that produced last year’s Cox Plate winner Pinker Pinker.

From barrier 11 More Joyous and jockey Nash Rawiller have room and options and the mighty mare looks in a prime position to improve on her fifth to dual winner So You Think in the Cox Plate of 2010 when caught up from gate three.

She struggled last time out when carrying the 60kg top-weight to run fourth as the beaten favourite in the Toorak Handicap but odds are under weight-for-age conditions More Joyous can get her groove back.

There’s plenty of supporters for a More Joyous upset in the Cox Plate too, the mare more popular than her two younger stablemates recently with favourite Pierro out from $4 to $4.60 and fellow three-year-old Proisir originally backed in from $10 to $9 but now out to $9.50 again at

So where is the rest of the 2012 Cox Plate money at?

While the odds on the rest of the runners have eased out the two other market movers are the Chris Waller-trained Shoot Out and future star Ethiopia both in from $26 to $19.

High Chaparral six-year-old Shoot Out is a four time Group 1 winner with form over this distance out to improve on an Epsom seventh. Watch them do just that third-up here.

There’s plenty to like about Pat Carey’s Helenus four-year-old Ethiopia too at this price.

While he has to come from behind at a tight track he is a Group 1 winner (Australian Derby) capable of improvement and his three lengths off Green Moon in the Turnbull Stakes when sixth second-up wasn’t a bad effort.

The Lloyd Williams-owned second favourite Green Moon meanwhile remains steady at $4.60 with no change to the Turnbull Stakes winner’s price to hand jockey Craig Williams with back-to-back Cox Plates.
