Master Of Wine and Russian Camelot equal favourites for 100th WS Cox Plate

Two progressive gallopers headline betting for the 2020 Group 1 WS Cox Plate (2040m) to be staged at The Valley on October 24 with Master Of Wine and Russian Camelot opening $11 ‘All In’ equal favourites at TAB after the announcement of official nominations on Tuesday.

Master Of Wine – trained by Michael, Wayne and John Hawkes – graduated from Benchmark company last February to finish fourth in a star-studded Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Randwick on April 11.

The Danny O’Brien-trained Russian Camelot rocketed to the top of ‘Pre Nominations’ betting for the Cox Plate – along with the Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup – after an impressive TAB South Australian Derby triumph at Morphettville on May 9.

Gallopers the calibre of Alligator Blood, Arcadia Queen, the well-travelled Magic Wand and this year’s All-Star Mile winner Regal Power are all $15 chances.

Group 1 winners King’s Legacy and Tagaloa, along with the unbeaten Peltzer, have opened $10 ‘All In’ equal favourites at TAB for the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 10 after the announcement of official nominations.

The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained King’s Legacy is already a dual Group 1 winner after taking out the Inglis Sires’ and Champagne Stakes at Randwick in April.

The Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young-trained Tagaloa won the Blue Diamond at Caulfield on February 22 and finished his first campaign with a fourth-place finish in the Golden Slipper at Rosehill on March 21.

The Gerald Ryan-trained Peltzer is unbeaten from three starts, including two wins over Overlord, who finished fourth to Rothfire in the J.J. Atkins at Eagle Farm in early June.

Three fillies share ‘All In’ favouritism at TAB for the Group 1 THousand Guineas (1600m) with Hungry Heart, Instant Celebrity and Personal all $11 after nominations were confirmed.

The Chris Waller-trained Hungry Heart won the Sweet Embrace Stakes – a lead-up to the Golden Slipper – at Randwick on February 29.

The Phillip Stokes-trained Instant Celebrity was most impressive just over a fortnight ago when victorious in the Oaklands Plate at Morphettville on July 18.

The Tom Dabernig and Ben Hayes-trained Personal finished third to Tagaloa and Hanseatic in the Blue Diamond at Caulfield om February 22.
