2014 Cox Plate Odds & Betting Update

Following the release of the Cox Plate 2014 field and barriers for this Saturday’s Moonee Valley major, bookies around the country have updated their Cox Plate odds with Fawkner the firming favourite.

The Robert Hickmott-trained seven-year-old sat top of the markets for this year’s $3 million Group 1 W.S. Cox Plate (2040m) following his win in the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes over the distance from October 11.

His price to become the first seven-year-old to win since the mighty mare Makybe Diva (2005) in the year she won her record third Melbourne Cup however firmed this morning when the son of Reset came up trumps with barrier four.

Owner Lloyd Williams’ godson Nicholas Hall rides Fawkner in the Cox Plate on Saturday with Makybe Diva also the last Cox Plate winner from the gate.

And like Makybe Diva who scored the rare double, Fawkner will back-up from the weight-for-age classic in the $6.2 million Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington on the first Tuesday of November.

Fawkner is into $4 in the Cox Plate odds at Ladbrokes.com.au and is joined on single-figures by three other hopes in:

  • #1 Sacred Falls ($6.50) – Has eased out slightly from $6, this dual Doncaster Mile winning five-year-old is one of three in the race for Sydney’s leading trainer Chris Waller. Jumps from barrier nine with Zac Purton riding, Purton in top form having won the Caulfield Cup with Japanese raider Admire Rakti last Saturday. Won the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) in Sydney two back before his fourth to Fawkner in the Caulfield Stakes and is yet to win over further than a mile.
  • #11 Adelaide ($6.50) – Aidan O’Brien-trained European raider from Ireland, one of three international Cox Plate hopes in 2014. Drawn wide in barrier 13 with Ryan Moore booked for the ride on the Galileo four-year-old who debuts down under here. Has won three and run top three in the other four of his seven career starts giving the consistent stallion a 100% Win/Place rate. Group 1 Secretariat Stakes winner over the 2000m in America two back before a third over 2400m in France in a Group 2 at Longchamp on September 14.
  • #8 Criterion ($8.50) – David Payne-trained Sebring four-year-old won the Rosehill Guineas – Australian Derby double as a three-year-old last season. Hasn’t won this time in but came close when just a long neck off Saturday’s favourite Fawkner in the Caulfield Stakes last time out from barrier three. Gets gate six here with Hugh Bowman retaining the ride looking to achieve the ATC Derby – Cox Plate double not achieved since 1986 (Bonecrusher).

Just outside the single figure hopes are a number of other livewire Cox Plate hopes including last year’s runner-up Happy Trails ($10) in barrier two with Damien Oliver to ride, Royal Descent ($10) for Waller coming off four second place finishes in Sydney including in the Epsom Handicap last time out and the other mare in the race looking to become the first female Cox Plate winner since Pinker Pinker (2011) – Silent Achiever ($13).
