A Cox Plate exacta is not much different from a quinella. Just like the quinella bet, the Cox Plate exacta requires you to bet on two horses to come first and second. However, and this is the crucial difference between the two exotic bets, in a Cox Plate exacta you must determine the exact order of arrival.

The winning Cox Plate exacta is determined by which two runners not only cross the line ahead of the rest of the field in the weight-for-age feature at Moonee Valley Racecourse, but also what order.

The 2016 Cox Plate Exacta saw Winx make history with an eight length victory over Hartnell. If Hartnell had scored an upset Cox Plate result that spring and Winx had finished second, the same exacta wouldn’t have paid out for the punters. The 2017 Cox Plate Exacta was also dominated by Winx who held a narrow margin on the fast-finishing Humidor. If Humidor had got up over the champion mare and won, the same Cox Plate exacta again would not have paid out.

How To Pick A Cox Plate Exacta

Picking a winning Cox Plate exacta comes down to studying the season’s Cox Plate form guide and keeping track of earlier spring lead-up races. Four-year-olds also have a good recent record in the 2040m major so adding in an in-form galloper from that age group can be a good tip.

If you are not confident that you will pick the correct order of arrival of your two favourites, you can safeguard yourself by placing a box bet instead of a straight Cox Plate exacta. A Cox Plate exacta box bet covers all possible combinations of arrival for your two chosen runners, maximising your chances of collecting a win from your Cox Plate exacta.
