Crystal Mile 2012 – Preview and Tips

Tomorrow is 2012 Cox Plate day which presents a bumper Moonee Valley card and one of the key support races to the main event is the Group 2 2012 Crystal Mile (1600m).

Just seven horses will line up but it is a quality field with dual Group 1 winner Rangirangdoo heading the market at $3.30.

It is a genuine log jam at the top of the market with Epsom Handicap runner-up Ambidexter hot on Rangirangdoo’s tail at $3.80 and Solzhenitysn ($4.00) and Silent Achiever ($4.40) also with strong claims.

It is unlikely that the winner will come from outside the top four with the others in the market the Leon Corstens-trained Tokugawa ($19.00), Bart Cummings’ Illo ($41.00) and long-shot outsider Spacecraft ($81.00).

If you can’t work out who to back in this exciting Cox Plate support race don’t worry as the experts have been hard at work to bring you our winning selections.
