Gai Waterhouse is long odds to secure her first Cox Plate at Moonee Valley on Saturday.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au is offering $21 for either of Waterhouse’s runners, Almalad or Wantjina to salute in the Moonee Valley Group 1.
Chris Waller, who is also yet to win a Cox Plate, has three runners, Sacred Falls, Royal Descent and Foreteller. Punters can take $3.50 with the online bookie about any of Waller’s runners taking out the weight for age classic.
“Punters have a great opportunity to stick with the strength. Two champion trainers with five runners between them, in a race they are yet to win. Surely this is the year for one of them?’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
Fawkner remains outright favourite at $4.25 ahead of Sacred Falls ($5.50) and Adelaide ($7.00).
