Gr1 Cox Plate Field & Barriers

Wednesday, 25th October 2017

The final field has been declared and the barrier draw conducted for the $3 million Gr1 Cox Plate (2040m) to be run at Moonee Valley on Saturday. Champion mare Winx, who will be attempting to create history by joining the legendary Kingston Town as the only horse to win three Cox Plates, will face just eight rivals in the weight-for-age feature. Winx, who will jump from barrier six, could start the shortest-priced Cox Plate favourite since Phar Lap in 1931 when Australia's greatest racehorse won at odds of $1.07. Winx is currently a $1.15 chance with TAB. Such is Winx's towering reputation, her nearest market rivals are Humidor and Gailo Chop at $18. Click below to view the Cox Plate field.
