Arod Likely For Cox Plate
The Cox Plate is back on the radar for smart British stayer Arod.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has priced Arod at $21 for the Moonee Valley Group 1.
Arod lumped 61kgs, when he was a game second to Solow in the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood in July.
Fawkner, following his gutsy win in last Saturday’s Makybe Diva Stakes, has firmed from $13 into $8.00 favourite for the Cox Plate.
“Arod was an outside chance of coming to Australia, but connections have indicated the Cox Plate is now his likely target. He’s a front runner and should be suited around the tight turning circuit at the Valley,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
