Late Mail Moonee Valley Race 10 – Cox Plate 2013 Winner

With only a couple of hours left until this year’s 2013 Cox Plate winner is revealed in the last at Moonee Valley Racecourse, late mail tips on the weekend’s feature are in.

The $3 million Group 1 Sportingbet Cox Plate (2040m) has drawn the crowd in Melbourne today and the thousands of race goers are unlikely to be disappointed with a star-studded field.

The retired Atlantic Jewel may not be there but there’s plenty of Group 1 talent in the mix

Even the bookies are having a hard time separating those to back and sack in this year’s Cox Plate field.

Kiwi visitor It’s A Dundeel, shooting for Group 1 win number six, remains top of the Cox Plate odds at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $4.50 in their standard fixed win markets and a juicy $9 for their exclusive double the odds offer.

While the Murray Baker-trained High Chaparral gelding was the Races.com.au team’s 2013 Cox Plate tip to win earlier in the week, late mail says the favourite could be beaten.

Just two of the punters’ picks have saluted for a successful Cox Plate result for favourite backers in the past decade, and it is a forgotten horse coming in for the late mail tip.

2013 Cox Plate Late Mail Tip

#12 Super Cool ($21 or $42 DTO)

Winner of the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) back in March, the now four-year-old Fastnet Rock gelding Super Cool has gone under the radar will all the pre-race hype having been on their former star stablemate Atlantic Jewel.

Indeed this horse would have an impossible task ahead to beat her home in the Cox Plate finishing order after she ran past him with ease in the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes (2000m) last start where they ran one – three with the Chris Waller-trained Foreteller sandwiched between.

However Kavanagh is now putting all his pennies on Super Cool to get the job done in Atlantic Jewel’s absence, and there’s form and history suggesting that at their $21 price they are over the odds.

“I’m superstitious and I actually believe in history,” Kavanagh told The Courier Mail.

“History tells me my horse might muck around a bit in the spring time until he gets his act together and if I can get him right on the day, he will be pretty good.

“History tells me he’s 3-0 versus It’s A Dundeel.

“History tells me that no horse has ever won the Cox Plate third up off a spell.

“You can get a knock on every horse in the race if you look hard enough.

“I’m optimistic. I’m not saying mine’s the tip, but I think he’s the forgotten horse.”

Also in their favour is the fact Super Cool loves Moonee Valley having won two from four at the track.

Their last start here was a fourth to the Gai Waterhouse-trained Fiorente, $5.50 to win the Cox Plate today, in the Group 2 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m).

They were only beaten half a length that day however, and with more distance they are back in it.

Super Cool is also the right age with four-year-olds boasting the boldest presence in the Cox Plate winners list, and even though they’re wide in barrier 13 there’s time to overcome the concerns with the gate.

Think Super Cool can get the job done in the Cox Plate this afternoon? Then head to Ladbrokes.com.au and get a juicy $42 in their double the odds markets for Kavanagh’s galloper to get the job done!
