Cox Plate 2019 Form Guide & Tips

Black Heart Bart ($26) Bet Now

Hasn’t Black Heart Bart returned to form in fine style. It has been an incredible comeback from the old boy.

This might be a little too hard for him but he’s worth a chance at the odds.

Avilius ($12) Bet Now

Quality type which won the Optic White Stakes two back at Randwick before running on well enough for fourth last start.

Shouldn’t be paying double-figure odds for the Cox Plate and punters are getting great value odds.

Kluger ($17) Bet Now

Not the best of the Japanese runners and he comes into this after running eighth last time out.

Has experience racing in Australia and that should help, but the tight Moonee Valley track won’t be easy for him.

Can’t rule out any runner from Japan.

Harlem ($34) Bet Now

Improved run to finish third at Caulfield last time out but he’s really a one-trick pony.

Wait for him to line up in the Australian Cup next autumn as that’s the only race he tries his hardest in.

Homesman ($20) Bet Now

Had Homesman run well last time out, he may well have been one of the favourites for this race.

However, he didn’t fire up behind Cape of Good Hope and we’re unsure what to expect. Form prior could see him fighting out the finish.

Kings Will Dream ($19) Bet Now

Took awhile to come back from injury but he did so with a bang last time out.

Lovely gelding which has champion qualities and we couldn’t discount his chances here.

Just needs some early luck from barrier 17.

Te Akau Shark ($16) Bet Now

Connections weren’t sure if they were going to line up here, but they’re having a go.

The Kiwi-trained runner has drawn barrier 18 and it’s going to be tough from out there.

He flashed home for second in the Epsom Handicap last start and he could turn his consistent form into winning form.

Chance at the odds.

Danceteria ($17) Bet Now

European runner and they should always be respected. Looked good last campaign, winning three from five starts.

Has been respected in the betting so respect at the price.

Lys Gracieux (Best Bet – $3.70) Bet Now

There have been some serious bets placed on the Japanese runner after Mer De Glace won the Caulfield Cup.

Lys Gracieux is a much better runner than Mer De Glace and if that form lines up well, he should be too good for them.

The Valley is a tough track to see for the first time but he’s a quality horse and should run well.

Magic Wand ($14) Bet Now

Knocking on the door after consecutive second placings in Europe.

Unsure if that form is best-suited for this race but it would be foolish to rule her out as she has the O’Brien polish.

The only negative is the weight.

Cape of Good Hope ($13) Bet Now

Made a big impression when winning the Caulfield Stakes at his first Australian start.

All three-year-old colts from Europe should be respected and he gets into this race nicely on the weights.

$13 is a good price.

Mystic Journey (Best Each Way – $7) Bet Now

Was at much shorter odds to win this race earlier on in the spring. Has drifted a touch but she remains on track.

Solid run for fifth last time out and with 11 wins from 16 starts, she deserves all the respect in the world.

Nice price and there is some money coming now.

Verry Elleegant (Best Roughie – $16) Bet Now

Quality mare which worked her way home last time out to win the Hill Stakes.

She’s a seven-time winner from 14 starts which has won at the Group 1 level and that’s key for a race like this.

James McDonald chose her over Te Akau Shark and that’s a good sign.

Castelvecchio ($7.50) Bet Now

A massive amount of money is coming for Castelvecchio which gets into the race with only 49.5kg on the back.

He worked home nicely for second behind Shadow Hero last time out and his form doesn’t really matter coming into this.

He’s a swooper and with the light weight, he has to be considered.

Emergencies (unlikely to run):

Humidor – $26
Mr Quickie – $26
Gailo Chop – $51
Dream Castle – $101
