Winx At Attractive Odds For Cox Plate

Wednesday, 8th August 2018

Given Winx’s average starting price over the past year has seen the champion mare around the $1.15 mark or less, Cox Plate markets following official nomination closures have her at positively luxurious odds of $1.55, and not too dissimilar to the $1.50 offered months before her Gr1 Queen Elizabeth triumph. Understandable, as he was beaten less than a half-length in 2017’s Cox Plate, Humidor is a $15 quote ahead of overseas raiders Benbatl ($21), Cliffs Of Moher & Neorealism ($26), with D’Argento, Happy Clapper, Kementari and Unforgotten all at $31. Curiously, given their strong reputations, possible European challengers Poet’s Word and Saxon Warrior are both listed at $41, possibly casting doubt on the likelihood of both or either of them actually contesting the race.
