Arod In Line For Cox Plate Tilt

31 July, 2015

Handy British stayer Arod could join the growing list of invaders with an eye on Melbourne’s Spring Carnival.

Online bookmaker added Arod to Cox Plate market at $9.00, following his gutsy second in the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood during the week.

Arod tried to lead all of the way, but was run down by Plate favourite Solow ($7.00).

Another Cox Plate hopeful, Vancouver, won his Randwick barrier trial this morning.

The Golden Slipper winner is on the fourth line of betting at $13.

“Arod looks an ideal type for the Cox Plate and connections are apparently considering their options. He’s a bold front-running horse and would be suited by the tight turning Moonee Valley circuit,’’ said’s Will Byrne.
