37 horses in contention for Cox Plate after third declarations

October 4, 2011

It may not be a vintage Cox Plate, but it promises to be a competitive renewal with 37 horses still in contention for Australia’s weight for age championship.

There will be no three year old filly aiming to match the feats of Surround (1976 Cox Plate winner) this year, with Dowager Queen and Pane in the Glass both withdrawn.

Smart Missile and Helmet, who will run in the Caulfield Guineas this Saturday, are the only two three year olds remaining.

There is still the prospect of international participation with Americain and Sahara Sun still entered.

Strangely, Love Conquers All – who has run over 1200m at his two runs this preparation – remains in entries.

Here are third declarations for the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m):

Race 5 – Tatts Cox Plate (2040 METRES)
