Could There be A Military Attack on the 2013 Cox Plate?

Top Hong Kong trainer John Moore has flagged the possibility of a trip to Australia to chase the 2013 Cox Plate (2040m) riches with classy galloper Military Attack.

The former British gelding, who raced under the name of Rave, has excelled since stepping out for Moore’s team for the first time at the beginning of last year.

On Sunday night he became a triple Group 1 winner when claiming the 2013 Singapore International Cup from stablemate Dan Excel.

Moore, who left Australia in 1971, said after Sunday’s win he is hoping to taste top level success in Australia with his talented charge this spring.

“There is Royal Ascot and the Prince of Wales’s Stakes but I would love to win a Group One in Australia,” Moore said.

“I’ll talk to the owner and consider giving him a break and then getting him ready for the Cox Plate.”

Military Attack has been in outstanding form this year, having won the Group 1 QEII Cup at Sha Tin as well as the Group 1 Hong Kong Gold Cup.

The Singapore Cup win was the first Group 1 win outside of Hong Kong for Moore.

The impressive victory has seen Military Attack storm into the third line of betting in the Cox Plate market.

Above him in the market are star colts It’s A Dundeel ($4.20) and Super Cool ($6.50).

With $3 million in prizemoney up for grabs, the Cox Plate is Australia’s richest weight-for-age race and is commonly referred to as the weight-for-age championship of Australasia.

With the increase of success by international horses in the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups it was considered only a matter of time when more would be aimed at the lucrative Moonee Valley feature.
