Joseph O’Brien’s Irish raider State Of Rest ($7.50) survived a protest to deny the James Cummings-trained runner-up Anamoe victory in the 2021 Cox Plate results. Beaten equal favourite Anamoe was brave in defeat finishing just a short-head back second, while the Chris Waller-trained Verry Elleegant made up ground from last into third.

Cox Plate odds are available months before the $5 million Group 1 weight-for-age classic runs at Moonee Valley Racecourse over 2040m in late October each Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.
All-in Cox Plate odds are open at bookmakers like Ladbrokes.com.au on potential runners and offer generous prices on horses that may or may not line-up in the official Cox Plate field. While these markets are juicy, there is no guarantees and many punters prefer to wait on the Cox Plate odds for the final field open the week of the race.
Cox Plate odds are determined by factors including the runners’ track / distance form, lead-up performances in earlier spring races like the weight-for-age Group 1 Ladbrokes Stakes (2000m) held a fortnight before – the double last completed by Winx (2016) – and the Cox Plate barriers.
The age of runners also determines their Cox Plate odds with four-year-olds boasting the best recent record in the Cox Plate results.
The Ladbrokes Cox Plate odds for 2018 were dominated by the three-time defending champion Winx who was the odds-on favourite when she saluted for the punters and made history as the only horse to win four consecutive Cox Plates.
