British stayer Arod kept safe for 2015 Cox Plate

moonee-valleyThe 2015 Cox Plate is shaping up to be a beauty this year and Australiasia’s greatest weight-for-age race is back on the radar for smart British stayer Arod.

Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has priced Arod at $21.00 for the Group 1 Moonee Valley feature race in October.

Arod carried 61 kilograms to a game second behind Solow in the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood in July.

Fawkner has firmed from $13.00 into $8.00 favourite for the Cox Plate after his gutsy Makybe Diva Stakes victory at Flemington last Saturday.

“Arod was an outside chance of coming to Australia, but connections have indicated the Cox Plate is now his likely target,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.

“He’s a front runner and should be suited around the tight turning circuit at the Valley.”

“Winx is certainly an exciting mare and has obviously caught the eye of punters,”

The 2015 Cox Plate will be held on Saturday 24th October 2015 at Moonee Valley racecourse in Melbourne.
