Does Fiorente Have What It Takes To Win The Cox Plate For Gai?

Fiorente has been a drifter in 2013 Cox Plate betting markets and is now out to odds of $5 after starting the week as short as $4.20 to give leading trainer Gai Waterhouse her first ever win in the Cox Plate.

Waterhouse has had plenty of quality horses run in the Cox Plate but she is yet to taste victory in the $3.5 million Group 1 event; despite finishing second with Lotteria (2005) and Manhattan Rain (2009) and third with All Our Mob (1996) and Pierro (2012).

The Melbourne Cup has always been the major 2013 Spring Racing Carnival goal for but Fiorente he has shown, with his third place finish in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) and his win in the Group 2 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1400m), that he has the turn-of-foot required to be successful at weight-for-age level in the Cox Plate.

Can Fiorente give Waterhouse a long-awaited Cox Plate victory or will he join her star-studded list of Cox Plate failures?
