As usual we have mostly international horses in this race in an effort to secure a Melbourne Cup start. Theres nothing wrong with Steel Prince however, best of the locals and well placed here and $4.40 in early markets.
Entente has been running great in lower class races but has won four of ten starts but first attempt at 2400. With 9 runners I am happy e/w on Steel Prince.

THE COX PLATE THIS YEAR IS LIKELY TO BE AFFECTED BY A MAJOR RAIN EVENT THIS YEAR SO JUST AS WELL THE AFL IS IN BRISBANE THIS YEAR. What it does do is give Nettoyer a chance with her wide barrier being a considerable advantage….What! You’re saying. Is that right! Believe me it is. Anyone who has our Winning Barrier book (on sale as an ebook at our online store) confirms the facts and not only that but certain barrier draws at the Cox Plate distance produce long term level stakes profits. All of our stats for the Valley are included in the barrier analysis which also reveals one track where the inside barriers are absolutely disastrous. This info has saved me many times.
Our weekend coverage will be on YouTube later tonight or early tomorrow.
