2015 CB Cox Stakes Betting: Delicacy Odds-On

Dual Group 1 winner and Perth Cup top fancy Delicacy is odds-on favourite to win her first race of the summer when she runs fourth-up in Saturday’s CB Cox Stakes 2015 at Ascot Racecourse.

The four-year-old daughter of Al Maher is prepared by Karnup horseman Grant Williams and is one of 11 stayers facing off in the $250,000 Group 2 C.B. Cox Stakes (2100m) this weekend from gate six.

Perth’s premier hoop William Pike opted for the ride on the SA Oaks – Derby double winner from the winter over reigning Perth Cup champion, the fellow Bob & Sandra Peters-owned Real Love, and the bookies agree he has made the right choice.

Coming off a brave second from the outside barrier 16 of 16 draw in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) from December 5, Delicacy will appreciate the extra metres on Saturday from a better gate.

She dominates CB Cox Stakes betting at Ladbrokes.com.au at an odds-on price of $1.65 now she is back in top form as she heads towards the Group 2 Perth Cup (2400m) over the mile and a half on January 2.

Just one other runner is currently also under double figures in the CB Cox Stakes odds with the aforementioned Real Love at $4.80.

The hoop that rode Delicacy for her two Morphettville Group 1s earlier in the year, Peter Hall rides the Adam Durrant-trained Desert King mare for the first time as the five-year-old looks to atone for her eighth in the Kingston Town.

She is a five-time winner from 13 starts at Ascot and has won her only other start at the distance, the recent Group 3 Asian Beau Stakes winner jumping one on the favourite’s inside from gate five.

The next best in betting are the Vaughn Sigley-trained Black Heart Bart ($11) and Balmont Girl ($12).

Blackfriars gelding Black Heart Bart kicked off his latest campaign with a trio of wins including the Group 2 Lee Steere Stakes (1400m) on November 7 before a brave fourth in the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m).

His final lead-up into Saturday was also in the Kingston Town, run on a Heavy (8) track this year, when ninth and he looks a bit risky here at his first run over the distance with winning form that only extends to 1420m.

Balmont Girl also has improving to do on her 12th in the Kingston Town, but the run before the proven 2400m winner was third in the Railway.

She hasn’t won a race since November of last year but will run out the distance no worries and enjoy a firmer track than last time out.

Also under $20 to score the CB Cox Stakes upset in Perth this summer are the sole eastern state visitor Extra Zero ($15) who is also the nine-year-old veteran of the field in gate 10 with Chris Parnham riding and Kingston Town Classic third placed four-year-old Dark Musket ($17).
