The Ladbrokes Cox Plate form guide is a detailed listing of all the essential facts and stats you need to know about the horses in the Cox Plate field to place a well-informed wager on the ‘race where champions are made’.

Each Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival on a Saturday in late October the $5 million Group 1 W.S. Cox Plate (2040m) runs at Moonee Valley Racecourse, and the Cox Plate form guide will let you know what runners have the best record at the track / distance, the saddlecloth numbers of all the final acceptors, starting weights, jockeys, trainers, Cox Plate barriers and much more.

Using the Cox Plate form guide to find out more about each horse in the line-up is a top tip before you place your Cox Plate bets online, and the form is out as soon as the field is released the Tuesday of race week.

General Cox Plate form facts to consider when looking at the field for this year’s race include:

  • So You Think (Caulfield Guineas 5th in 2009) was the last Cox Plate winner to run worse than third in their final lead-up
  • Winx (2015-16) became the second dual Cox Plate winner in the past 10 years joining So You Think (2009-10) and in 2017 won again joining Kingston Town (1980-82) as the only other three-time Cox Plate champion
  • Winx (2015-18) then surpassed Kingston Town and became the sole four-time Cox Plate winner in history with her 2018 success
  • Winx (for the 2017 edition) was the shortest price favourite since Phar Lap ($1.07) in 1931 winning at $1.18; she won again in 2018 as a $1.24 shot in Cox Plate betting
  • Before Winx who started top of the Cox Plate odds in both 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 the only favourite to salute for the punters since 2005 was So You Think for his second in 2010
  • In 2019 the Japanese raider Lys Gracieux became just the second Northern Hemisphere-trained horse to win the Cox Plate along with Adelaide (2014)
  • Lys Gracieux ($2.50 in 2019) was also the last Cox Plate favourite to salute

Where To Find A Cox Plate Form Guide

The most detailed, easy-to-use and comprehensive Cox Plate form guide can be found online at a a bookmaker like the current race sponsor Ladbrokes.com.au once markets on the Cox Plate field are released. You can find the Cox Plate form guide for individual horses by clicking on their name on the race card or by entering the special form guide section provided by some online bookies.

Using online bookmaking sites to do your Cox Plate form guide research is the most convenient way to prepare for the race day. The online Cox Plate form guides are available around the clock, so you can really focus on the timing of your Cox Plate betting.

How To Read A Cox Plate Form Guide

While not every bookmaker sets out their Cox Plate form guide the same way, the abbreviation and overall terminology is usually very similar. Here is an overview of the most important information you can gather from your Cox Plate form guide. Check it out and start making better decisions when it comes to placing your bets on the Cox Plate.

Age and Sex: The age and the sex of a horse can be found in the same section on most Cox Plate form guides. There are five varieties of thoroughbred race horses, usually abbreviated to the first letter: Horse (H) – male thoroughbred aged three or older; Mare (M) – female thoroughbred aged three or older; Colt (C) – male thoroughbred under the age of four; Filly (F) – thoroughbred female under the age of four; and Gelding (G) – male thoroughbred who has been castrated.

As the Cox Plate is a Weight-For-Age event, the weight allocations give 3-year-old colts and geldings quite an advantage, making them worthwhile in box trifecta picks. History shows that four-year-olds have the best record in the Cox Plate over the past decade.

Barrier: A barrier is the starting position of your selection, frequently listed right after the horse’s name on the Cox Plate form guide. Some races favour different starting positions, and a barrier of between 3 and 8 seems to optimal in the Cox Plate.

Career: The career section is basically a horse’s resume. The section lists all career races of an individual horse and an overview of their wins and places.

Form/Last 6: This is a series of numbers listed behind a horse’s name, which designate the places the horse recorded in its past six career starts. The very right number stands for the horse’s most recent race.

The form is given in numbers from 0-9. Numbers from 1 to 9 are the place the horse finished in, while 0 means the horse finished worse than 9th place. Other symbols refer to rest spells between races or to thrown jockeys and the like, but you do not need to memorise these symbols if you use the Cox Plate form guide at an online bookie. Online betting sites usually include detailed race summaries for each horse in their form guides.

Jockey: Knowing which jockey will be riding your selection in the Cox Plate can be helpful when deciding on a favourite. Some jockeys have signature events, others have particularly good relationships with certain horses – so the jockey is definitely a factor to consider before making up your mind.

Pedigree: A section of the Cox Plate form guide that introduces the sire and dam of a contender. This section is useful for punters with a lot of knowledge about the champion runners of past generations, who can guess a runner’s abilities from his or her lineage.

Saddlecloth Number: The number under which your horse will be running. Knowing this number helps to place your bet and is really handy for keeping track of your selection during the race.

Track Conditions: Fast, Good, Dead, Slow, Heavy and Wet are the possible track conditions in a horse race. Some horses prefer certain track conditions and it can be important to consider the track conditions before placing a bet on the Cox Plate.

Trainer: It’s always helpful to know who has trained your selection for the Cox Plate. It is advisable to bet on runners trained by greats of the sport, as a trainer’s experience will always reflect on the performance of the horse.

Weight: This refers to the weight your horse will carry during the race. Some Cox Plate form guides will have a separate section for weight, others will list it right after the barrier number. Regardless, the Cox Plate is a Weight-For-Age race, so you should take the horse’s record into account more than the weight it will carry.

If you want to play at a site that will give you a Cox Plate form guide you can use to improve your betting without too much hassle, then be sure to sign up with Ladbrokes.com.au today.
