October 23rd, 2012

The final field and barrier draw for the 2012 Cox Plate (2040m) was released today and has led to some minor changes in the Cox Plate betting market.

Gai Waterhouse-trained Pierro is still the favourite for the 2012 Cox Plate and is currently available at odds of $4 at bookmaker.com.au.

The son of Lonhro will jump from barrier number seven and will be ridden by leading jockey Corey Brown for the first time.

Turnbull Stakes (2000m) winner Green Moon is on the second line of Cox Plate betting markets.

The Lloyd Williams-owned six-year-old has improved in each race this campaign and connections decided to skip the Caulfield Cup in favour of the Australasian weight for age championship.

Ocean Park has shortened in Cox Plate betting after impressing in trackwork at Breakfast for the Stars this morning and is now into odds of $5.50.

The New Zealand galloper is undefeated in this campaign and has won the Underwood Stakes (1800m) and Caulfield Stakes (2000m) since arriving in Australia.

Three-year-olds All Too Hard and Proisir have both been well backed in the Cox Plate betting market at bookmaker.com.au.

All Too Hard was confirmed as a starter this morning and will be ridden by leading Queensland jockey Chris Munce while Proisir will be ridden by Craig Newitt.

Stephan Farley-trained Sincero ($21), 2011 Cox Plate placegetter Rekindled Interest ($21), Chris Waller-trained Shoot Out ($26) and AJC Derby winner Ethiopia ($26) are the only other horses in the field at odds less than $30.
