Luckygray Narrow 2013 CB Cox Stakes Betting Favourite

Trevor Andrews’ triple Group 1 winning galloper Luckygray has opened narrow favourite to take out the CB Cox Stakes 2013 at Ascot this Saturday adding to their stellar Perth Summer Racing Carnival campaign for this season.

The six-year-old son of Bradbury’s Luck scored their third elite level trophy last month thanks to a gutsy effort in the Railway Stakes, a mile classic they also won on protest back in 2011.

Last start they were far from disgraced after an awkward jump in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) when finishing a quarter length away second to WA Guineas champ Ihtsahymn.

The three-year-old had the obvious weight advantage carrying just 52kg to Luckygray’s 59kg, and it is a similar story on Saturday.

The Fred Kersley-trained Ihtsahymn has just 51kg under the weight-for-age conditions of the $250,000 Group 2 C.B. Cox Stakes (2100m) while Luckygray again has 59kg.

But the bookies are banking on the older grey for this rematch with Andrews’ horse heading the CB Cox Stakes odds at a current quote of $3.70.

Ihtiram gelding Ihtsahymn meanwhile is hot on their heels in the markets paying $4, out from $3.900, with Steve Parnham to ride the in-form light weight from barrier two.

There are then two other single figure fancies in the field with Mr Moet the next best in betting paying $4.40.

Drawn between Luckygray (barrier four) and Ihtsahymn (barrier two) in gate three, Adam Durrant’s Mosayter gelding defends their CB Cox Stakes title having won the race from barrier 13 12 months ago.

That came on the back of two blistering Group 1 performances when winning the Railway Stakes first-up over Luckygray before their second to the same horse in the Kingston Town last year.

This year Mr Moet’s performances in both lead-up races were a little below par.

After a Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival campaign which included a close fourth to Side Glance in the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m), the six-year-old returned to Perth for the summer.

They are yet to finish in the money back home however when seventh in the Railway and fifth, beaten two lengths, in the Kingston Town Classic from the outside draw.

Rounding out those under $10 in the markets is then 2010 – 11 Kingston Town winner Playing God ($9).

Neville Parnham’s six-year-old Blackfriars stallion has been in good form again this prep and was last seen crossing just a length away fourth in this year’s Kingston Town Classic.

Also in the mix at more generous odds are then the likes of Perth Cup favourite Rohan ($10) coming off a Kingston Town third, veteran eight-year-old Black Tycoon ($17) and Grant Williams’ consistent mare Elite Belle ($18).
