Cox Plate Tips 2010

October 22nd, 2010

The Cox Plate 2010 is running this Saturday October 23 at 5:35PM AEDST. With a field full of championship quality horses, you will need our Cox Plate tips to help you with your betting. Read on for all our top tips.

So You Think is obviously the top tip for the Cox Plate. Of the entire Cox Plate field, no other runner has had such a good lead up to the race – and no other has the advantage of winning the race last year. Starting from barrier 5 and carrying just 57.5kg, it is no wonder that So You Think has such a short price at $1.55 on Luxbet.

When it comes to probable placegetters, your options broaden substantially. Our first pick to place is Shoot Out, thanks to his 2000 metre third place in the Turnbull Stakes and a win in the Australia Derby. If it weren’t for So You Think, he might even have had a shot at the win, but this just isn’t the year for Shoot Out.

Zipping is another horse we think could place, based largely on his Turnbull Stakes win and third place in the 2009 Cox Plate. If you look over Zipping’s record, it quickly becomes apparent that he is best over around 2000 to 2500 metres. A second place finish for Zipping is very achievable in the 2010 Cox Plate.

Finally, while it may not have much support, we think Captain Sonador is a very likely placegetter. It would be ludicrous to suggest the surprising Epsom Handicap winner could take this Cox Plate barring unforeseen disaster, but he showed in his last race that he has untapped ability that could definitely hand him a place in the Cox Plate.
