Cox Plate 2020 Betting Update: Russian Camelot Narrow Favourite

The punters have stayed with the Danny O’Brien-trained Russian Camelot in 2020 Cox Plate betting at The Valley on Saturday despite his last start loss and wide barrier for the Australasian weight-for-age championship.

Set to run as Moonee Valley Race 9 at 4:15pm (AEDT), this season’s highly-anticipated 100th running of the Group 1 $5 million Ladbrokes Cox Plate (2040m) may not be run in front of big crowd but it is still set to attract record interest.

Russian Camelot has been a favourite all the way through in the Cox Plate betting markets at race sponsor Ladbrokes.com.au and remains the punters’ pick at $4.80.

He will jump from the outside barrier in a 14-starter field with Damien Oliver continuing associations with the dual Group 1 winning son of Camelot.

The four-year-old is after atonement following his shock defeat when easily run down by Arcadia Queen in the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes (2000m) on October 10 as the odds-on favourite.

While yet to race at Moonee Valley and despite the outside alley, he is still the one to beat as he looks to turn the tables on the Grant & Alana Williams-trained mare Arcadia Queen.

She follows closely at current Cox Plate odds of $5.50 looking to do the double with William Pike in flying form and sticking with her for the big event.

Back to her brilliant best with that incredible late burst in the Caulfield Stakes, the five-year-old daughter of Pierro is drawn gate eight in the Cox Plate field and presents as a danger again.

Equal $5.50 second elect is one of the internationals in the mix, Aidan O’Brien’s well-performed Irish raider Armory.

A European three-year-old he has had 11 runs for four victories and was last seen finishing second to his dual champion stablemate Magical in the Group 1 Irish Champion race over a very similar distance in September.

O’Brien won this race back in 2014 with the then overseas-trained Adelaide and this horse looks to come via a similar lead-up looking to beat home the locals.

The huge early mover in Cox Plate betting meanwhile backed right in from $11 to $8.50 is the Jamie Richards-trained Kiwi mare Probabeel.

Kerrin McEvoy rides her from near the inside out of gate two in the event with the Savabeel four-year-old chasing her third win on the trot.

She’s been very good in Sydney this prep in the lead-up including winning Randwick’s Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) last time out from a wide barrier.

Not sure how her profile presents in a Cox Plate as she goes up considerably in weight, but the markets suggest she can frank her interstate form here.
