  • 1st: #1 Romantic Warrior ($3.60F)
  • 2nd: #3 Mr Brightside
  • 3rd: #4 Alligator Blood
  • 4th: #9 Duais

It was a Ladbrokes Cox Plate 2023 result for the ages with jockey James McDonald going back-to-back after his success on Anamoe last spring when narrowly getting up on the outside aboard the Danny Shum-trained Hong Kong raider Romantic Warrior ($3.60F). Denied by a nose was the Team Hayes-trained Mr Brightside, while Alligator Blood snared third after looking the winner inside the final 50m.

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 Might And Power (2000m), formerly the Caulfield Stakes, held a fortnight before – the double last completed by Winx (2016) and Anamoe (2022) – 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.

In 2019 the Cox Plate odds had the Japanese-trained mare Lys Gracieux ($2.50) on top and she too saluted for the punters.

In 2022 Anamoe became the latest four-year-old to salute at Cox Plate odds of $2.40.

In 2023 Romantic Warrior became the latest Cox Plate favourite to win jumping at odds of $3.60.
