Elite Belle Leads 2014 CB Cox Stakes Odds

Grant Williams’s Railway Stakes winning mare Elite Belle is clear favourite to win a second elite level this Perth Summer Racing Carnival when she takes on a top field in Saturday’s CB Cox Stakes 2014 at Ascot.

The Canny Lad six-year-old pays $2.80 in the latest Ladbrokes.com.au markets for the $250,000 Group 2 C.B. Cox Stakes (2100m), the field for which is down to 13 gallopers.

Railway Stakes runner-up Balmont Girl (barrier eight) is an early scratching from the CB Cox Stakes and will instead run in the Listed WA St Leger over the same track and distance against easier company.

That leaves Elite Belle dominating CB Cox Stakes betting, the state’s premier jockey William Pike back aboard and drawn ideally in barrier four.

Pike won the Railway with Elite Belle but then jumped aboard Rommel in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m), a race Saturday’s CB Cox Stakes favourite ran a brave third in behind the Chris Waller-trained Moriarty.

She’s out then to improve on that 1800m run when up in distance again here, Elite Belle racing over further than 1800m for the first time since her disappointing ninth to Ihtsahymn in the same race 12 months ago.

Following her in the CB Cox Stakes odds are then three other single figure hopes with:

  • #7 Bass Strait ($4) – Neville Parnham-trained Holy Roman Emperor gelding drawn nicely in barrier two for jockey Chris Parnham. Parnham has had the ride for all four runs this time in, including the Group 3 RJ Peters Stakes (1500m) victory on November 15. Last two runs were in Group 1 company when sixth in both the Railway and the Kingston Town Classic, beaten under three lengths and finishing off well both times with improvement tipped getting up in distance here.
  • #10 Ihtsahymn ($7) – Defending CB Cox Stakes champion isn’t travelling anywhere near as well as this time last summer but the bookies are taking no chances. Fred Kersley’s four-year-old looked better in the Kingston Town (8th) than the Railway (10th) so is on the up, has been working well since and should appreciate the extra metres.
  • #1 Mr Moet ($7.50) – Another former winner of this race having won in 2012 before a couple of Melbourne raids, this Mosayter seven-year-old has been well beaten in both runs this time in off nearly a year on the sidelines. 14th in the Railway Stakes was very disappointing and the Kingston Town ninth not much better. Could be hitting his straps now however and will suit the step up in distance too.

Just outside the top fancies are then Dan Morton’s classy Boulder Cup winner from September Red Blast ($11), early market mover Chester Road ($11) who was runner-up in this race back in 2012 before missing nearly two years of racing and Lucciola ($13) coming off a fourth to 2015 Perth Cup favourite Real Love in the Group 3 Queen’s Cup (2200m) from two weeks ago.
