Spring Carnival W.S. Cox Plate

After two weeks at Caulfield, the Spring Racing Carnival hots up in intensity and shifts to the tighter confines of the Melbourne’s famous Mooney Valley. Of course, the big race there is the W.S. Cox Plate and all the talk is naturally is about the champion mare, Winx.


Often dubbed the ‘best racehorse-on-the-planet’, Winx’s 28 race-long-winning-record may never-be-broken. Usually, she’s simply a class above-the-rest. However, this year in the $5 million W.S. Cox Plate, there are class runners across the field and they could threaten the great mare.


Jockey Hugh Bowman should be able to do enough to get Winx over the line for her unprecedented fourth straight Cox Plate.


However, at Winx’s short odds of $1.25 does make the punter think:


Where is the best value to finally end her win-streak?


Given that The Autumn Sun has pulled of the event, look for Humidor, Avilius and Kings Will Dream as great each-way, Win/Place chances should Winx stumble and finally be beaten.
