Cox Plate final field: MVRC committee makes right decision including Efficient

October 18, 2011

The final field for the $3m Tatts Cox Plate (2040m) was announced at a function at Moonee Valley this morning.

Much of the discussion prior to the barrier draw centred around the makeup of the field, with five horses – Avienus, Efficient, Pinker Pinker, Wall Street and Yosei – expected to vie for the final three positions.

In the end, the committee decided that Efficient, a winner of the Victoria Derby, Melbourne Cup and Turnbull Stakes but barely raced over the last two years, deserved a position in the nation’s weight for age championship.

It would have been a travesty if he didn’t gain a start.

Avienus and Yosei were made the emergencies.

Here is the final field for the Cox Plate:
