The Cox Plate is a weight-for-age race for three year old horses and older. The Cox Plate is run at Moonee Valley Racecourse and has a long and distinguished history. Some of the quality horses to have won the Cox Plate include Phar Lap, Sunline, Northerly, Kingston Town and of course Winx.
Cox Plate Betting
Horse racing enthusiasts often regard the Cox Plate to be the best of the big Group One races to bet on each year. While races such as the Melbourne Cup and Caulfield Cup still attract more bets, the Cox Plate still holds a massive amount of money each year.
A capacity field of 14 runners contest the Cox Plate each year, making the field much smaller than the Melbourne Cup. The smaller field doesn’t make it a whole lot easier to pick a winner though with plenty of long shot horses winning the race over the years.
In recent years Winx has had a firm grip on Cox Plate betting, the champion mare has stifled betting with punters cautious of betting against her.
Cox Plate Bonus Bets
Given that the Cox Plate is one of the biggest betting races of the year, many bookmakers will offer great promotions on the race in an effort to lure punters to bet with them.
