Greatest Ever Cox Plate 2021 Field

Race Time: TBA
DATE TBC
1. Deep Impact (8)
J: Yutaka Take
T: Yasuo Ikee
W: 59kg
Best Odds: $14
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: He is now remembered for his incredible exploits in the breeding barn, but Deep Impact was a serious racehorse on the track as well. He swept the Japanese Triple Crown in 2005 and went on to win the Tenno Sho, Takarazuka Kinen, Japan Cup and Arima Kinen as a four-year-old. The Japanese champion will be the Asian representative in the Greatest Cox Plate Ever! Year/s won Cox Plate: N/A
2. Northerly (10)
J: Patrick Payne
T: Fred Kersley
W: 59kg
Best Odds: $41
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: They don’t breed them as tough as Northerly anymore! There was plenty of controversy surrounding his Cox Plate win in 2001, he had to survive a protest from both Sunline and Viscount to hang on to the race, but he beat his great rival Sunline fair and square in 2002. He never won by big margins, but you always wanted to be on Northerly in a tight finish. Year/s won Cox Plate: 2001 & 2002
3. Frankel (1)
J: Tom Queally
T: Henry Cecil
W: 59kg
Best Odds: $5.50
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: Can Frankel defend his unbeaten record in the Greatest Cox Plate Ever? Frankel finished his career with 14 wins from as many race starts and was utterly dominant in races like the 2000 Guineas, Sussex Stakes, Queen Elizabeth II Stakes, Lockinge Stakes, Queen Anne Stakes and International Stakes. There is no question he deserves to be the European representative in this race. Year/s won Cox Plate: N/A
4. Might And Power (7)
J: Jimmy Cassidy
T: Jack Denham
W: 59kg
Best Odds: $16
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: Might And Power is the most recent horse to have won the Caulfield Cup, Melbourne Cup and Cox Plate during his racing career. After completing the Cups Double in 1997, Might And Power was set for the Cox Plate in 1998 and he didn’t disappoint. Jimmy Cassidy had an incredible relationship with Might And Power and together they made the earth start to rumble! Year/s won Cox Plate: 1998
5. Gunsynd (3)
J: Roy Higgins
T: T J Smith
W: 59kg
Best Odds: $31
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: The Goondiwindi Grey remains one of the most popular horses in the history of Australian racing and he was just about unbeatable in 1972. After finishing a close second with 62.5 kilograms on his back in the Epsom Handicap, Gunsynd came out and blitzed his rivals in the Cox Plate before he finished a gallant third behind Piping Lane in the Melbourne Cup. Year/s won Cox Plate: 1972
6. Tulloch (5)
J: Neville Sellwood
T: T J Smith
W: 59kg
Best Odds: $8.00
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: Tulloch had to wait until he was a six-year-old before he finally got a crack at the Cox Plate, but it was more than worth the wait. His victory in the 1960 Cox Plate broke the Australian record over 10 furlongs and before that he had destroyed Phar Lap’s 28-year-old race record in the AJC Derby. Year/s won Cox Plate: 1960
7. So You Think (2)
J: Steven Arnold
T: Bart Cummings
W: 57.5kg
Best Odds: $16
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: So You Think could very well have beaten Winx to four Cox Plate victories if he wasn’t controversially sent to Ireland after the 2010 Melbourne Cup. So You Think led from start to finish to win the 2009 Cox Plate as an unheralded three-year-old and he returned 12 months later as arguably the best horse in the world! Year/s won Cox Plate: 2009 & 2010
8. Kingston Town (6)
J: Malcolm Johnston
T: T J Smith
W: 57.5kg
Best Odds: $10
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: Kingston Town dominated the Cox Plate in the early 1980s. The King generally produced his best form at Moonee Valley and all three of his victories in the Cox Plate were unique in their own way. His victory in 1982, where the legendary Bill Collins declared “Kingston Town can’t win”, remains one of the most infamous moments in Australian racing. Year/s won Cox Plate: 1980, 1981 & 1982
9. Dulcify (9)
J: Brent Thomson
T: Colin Hayes
W: 57.5kg
Best Odds: $26
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: Before the emergence of Winx, no horse had won the Cox Plate by a greater margin than Dulcify in 1979! Brent Thomson rode Dulcify aggressively in his Cox Plate triumph and it paid dividends as the Colin Hayes-trained galloper bolted in to win by seven lengths. That remained the largest winning margin until Winx’s incredible victory in 2016. Year/s won Cox Plate: 1979
10. Tobin Bronze (14)
J: Jim Johnson
T: Graeme Heagney
W: 57.5kg
Best Odds: $26
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: Tobin Bronze may be the most underrated horse in the history of Australian racing. He was almost unbeatable in 1966 and 1967 and across two seasons he won just about every Group 1 on the Australian racing calendar. Tobin Bronze was nothing short of dominant in the 1966 Cox Plate and he went on to win again in 1967 in his final race start in Australia. Year/s won Cox Plate: 1966 & 1967
11. Phar Lap (11)
J: Jim Pike
T: Harry Telford
W: 57.5kg
Best Odds: $6.00
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: Phar Lap dominated Australian racing during the Great Depression and he remains a national icon. Having ‘a heart as big as Phar Lap’ is an enduring saying in Australia and he showed his toughness with his two outstanding wins in the Cox Plate. ‘Big Red’ was the first horse to win the Cox Plate twice and he was a dominant odds-on favourite on both occasions. Year/s won Cox Plate: 1930 & 1931
12. Winx (12)
J: Hugh Bowman
T: Chris Waller
W: 57kg
Best Odds: $4.50
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: The mighty mare made the Cox Plate her own with an unprecedented four consecutive victories. No horse has ever run faster over the 2040 metres at The Valley and she is capable of winning from what would look like impossible situations. It is tough to bet against her over this track and distance! Year/s won Cox Plate: 2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018
13. Sunline (4)
J: Greg Childs
T: Trevor Mckee
W: 57kg
Best Odds: $26
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: The 1999 and 2000 editions of the Cox Plate were both packed full of quality, but Sunline made her rivals look second rate. In 1999 she comfortably accounted for Tie The Knot and Sky Heights before she returned in 2000 to score a dominant seven lengths victory on a wet Moonee Valley track. There are many that still argue she would have beaten Northerly in 2001 without any interference. Year/s won Cox Plate: 1999 & 2000
14. Secretariat (13)
J: Ron Turcotte
T: Lucien Laurin
W: 56.5kg
Best Odds: $7.00
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: Secretariat is the greatest horse in the history of American racing and he is worthy of his place as the North American representative in the Greatest Cox Plate Ever. Secretariat won the Triple Crown in 1973 and incredibly was able to break the race record in all three events. His win in the 1973 Belmont Stakes, where he won by an incredible 31 lengths, is the stuff of legend. Year/s won Cox Plate: N/A

Who decides the winner?

To ensure the credibility and integrity of the race, no one at Ladbrokes will be able to view the race or the result before it runs live on Channel 7 on Friday, October 23.

The race and its result will be based on historical data, which has been researched and built out by a third-party supplier, Timeform, to provide a designated rating for each horse. This data, which is unknown to Ladbrokes, along with a fixed starting price will be imputed into Inspired Entertainment’s algorithm to deliver the race result. This process will be undertaken twice, to deliver two separate races and likely two different outcomes. One of these races, which will be delivered directly from Inspired Entertainment to Channel 7, will be randomly selected on the day to be run as the actual Ladbrokes Greatest Ever Cox Plate.

Ladbrokes will have no influence over the race selection, nor will the outcome be known prior to the event commencing.

How does the Greatest Ever Cox Plate work?

Ladbrokes has commissioned Inspired Entertainment to build the Ladbrokes Greatest Ever Cox Plate.

The UK-based company is considered the world leader in sports animation having already delivered the virtual Grand National and virtual Kentucky Derby this year to international acclaim.

Ladbrokes has worked closely with Inspired Entertainment to ensure the authenticity of the Cox Plate including:

  • Exact modelling of the iconic Moonee Valley circuit, using detailed imagery and drone footage
  • Horse-by-horse builds to replicate jockey silks, horse colours and markings
  • Use of detailed speed maps and historical footage to replicate horse racing patterns
