Handy British stayer Arod could join the growing list of invaders with an eye on Melbourne’s Spring Carnival.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au 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 sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
