Cox Plate First Four

A winning Cox Plate First Four is an exotic bet type offered on the $3 million Group 1 W.S. Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley in October each Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

For a winning Cox Plate First Four bet, you pick the first four runners to finish the weight-for-age classic in their exact order of arrival. Backing the Cox Plate First Four is a tough ask and many punters prefer to place a Cox Plate Box First Four, which means the four selections don’t have to finish in exact order in that year’s Cox Plate results.
