Cox Plate 2015 Two Word Form Guide

On Saturday the 2015 Cox Plate steals the show in Melbourne with Australasia’s weight-for-age championship attracting one of its best fields to depth and to help you sort the genuine contenders from the pretenders below is the exclusive two-word form guide on the Moonee Valley classic.

This season’s $3 million Group 1 W.S. Cox Plate (2040m) is due to jump as Moonee Valley Race 9 of 10 on the huge Moonee Valley card on Saturday where customers at can enjoy an Extra 50% on their very first Fixed Odds winner in Races 1 – 5!

The Cox Plate field runs at its 14-starter capacity for the fifth straight year and five of those weight-for-age stars are at single figures to win in the latest Ladbrokes markets.

The easing favourite out from $5 to $5.50 is Irish raider Highland Reel drawn a treat in barrier four with last year’s Cox Plate – Melbourne Cup double winning hoop Ryan Moore aboard.

His trainer Aidan O’Brien got the job done with Adelaide 12 months ago and the lead-up form of his hope in 2015 reads very similar.

The next best in better is then Chris Waller’s Epsom Handicap winning mare Winx ($7.50 into $6) who shoots for her fifth straight win but has to stay out of trouble from the inside alley and the internationally-performed Caulfield Stakes winner Criterion ($6.50) who has drawn ideally with gate seven.

The last of the single figure fancies are Waller’s dual Group 1 winner over the mile in Sydney Kermadec ($8) in gate 10 with Glen Boss in the saddle looking to atone for his last aboard Royal Descent in the Caulfield Cup seven days ago and Craig Williams’s mount Arod ($8.50) for English horseman Peter Chapple-Hyam who is undefeated over the distance.

Earlier in the week we published our complete 2015 Cox Plate Form Guide and Betting Preview, but with so much depth in the line-up we’ve summed up the chances of each Cox Plate horse in just two words!
