2017 Cox Plate Day Scratchings & Track Report: Winx Faces 7 Rivals

Moonee Valley Racecourse is host to a sold-out Ladbrokes Cox Plate Day 2017 meeting this afternoon in Melbourne, the most notable scratching from the program being Kaspersky from the Group 1 leaving Winx with seven rivals in the $3 million classic.

Over 30,000 spectators are rolling into The Valley for the bumper 10 race meeting headlined by Chris Waller’s brilliant mare Winx shooting for a hat-trick of wins in the Group 1 $3 million Ladbrokes Cox Plate (2040m).

It is a partly cloudy day in Melbourne, but with zero chance of any notable rainfall the current Good (3) Moonee Valley track rating is set to remain across the afternoon.
