SuperCoach Racing: Ultimate guide to best Round 4 horses

An amazing performance in the Caulfield Cup by Incentivise and deserved Everest win for Nature Strip has whet the appetite for Australia’s best race, the Cox Plate.

There is also Group 1 racing at The Valley on Friday night with the Manikato Stakes, but SuperCoach Racing is only looking at Saturday’s card at Moonee Valley – not Friday night, and not Randwick for the Invitation meeting.

If you haven’t signed up for SuperCoach Racing yet, it’s not too late – in addition to the $10,000 grand prize, there are weekly prizes on offer across every round of the competition!

Racenet’s Jett Hatton and Punters’ Jack Fitzpatrick sit down to discuss their strategies ahead of Round 3.

GROUP 1 RACING

Cox Plate (2400m)

A select field of 10 are poised to greet the starter in Australia’s best race and you can make a case for just about all of them to win. Favourite Zaaki is a premium price ($450,000) while second-elect Anamoe is much more affordable ($275,000), making him a must-have in your team. Given it’s the only race with G1 points this weekend, you may want to add a second – or third – runner. It basically comes down to who else you like. Whether you want to use your captaincy in the Cox Plate is up to you – it’s worth the most points but appears to be a race of many chances. Again, that comes down to who you like and your confidence levels.

OFF BROADWAY

Here are some horses to consider from outside the big race:

JETT

Dosh ($200,000) — G3 Red Anchor Stakes (1200m)

Went enormous last time out when Savatoxl ran her down in the shadows of the post. That horse is a Group 1 winner and the favourite for Friday night’s Manikato Stakes. She is right at her peak third-up and well weighted with 56.5kg.

Forgot You ($125,000) — G2 Vase (2040m)

Thought he’d be competitive in the Cox Plate but finds himself here against a field that are a class below him. Two-from-two at The Valley, he’ll eat up 2040m and be winning.

FITZY

Elephant ($200,000) — G2 Crystal Mile (1600m)

Was a complete forgive in the G1 Toorak Handicap and, if you ignore that run, his other Australian form has been exceptional. The Kiwi’s been at this track/distance before, narrowly edged out in the G2 Feehan Stakes. He’ll be hard to beat here.

Heresy ($175,000) — G2 Fillies Classic (1600m)

Speaking of complete forgives, her G1 Thousand Guineas run was a horror show. She’s been competing well in the A-grade 3YO races and will find this much easier.

Forgot You ($125,000) — G2 Vase (2040m)

Looks as close as you can get to a ‘moral’ this weekend. He’s crying out for a trip and I think he’ll be incredibly hard to beat in the Derby, winning this on the way through.

JOCKEY TIP

Jett: Damien Oliver

Shying away from Jye McNeil this week to side with Ollie. He’s in hot form and has got a stack of good rides on Saturday, highlighted by New York Baby, Heresy and State Of Rest.

Fitzy: Jockey challenge favourite

J-Mac is in Melbourne and while he still has some strong rides, he’s not as safe a back-up option as he usually is. Combined with a number of runners accepting for both Friday night and Saturday, meaning there could be some scratchings, I’ll wait for Saturday morning and see who the favourite is in the jockey challenge.

LOCK OF THE ROUND

Here are our must-have horses for Round 4:

JETT

Heresy ($175,000) — G2 Fillies Classic (1600m)

Thought this filly was a hot chance for the Thousand Guineas but nothing went right. Forgiving of that run and dropping back to a field of B-grade fillies, she’s incredibly well weighted with just 57kg.

FITZY

Anamoe ($275,000) — G1 Cox Plate (2040m)

Not necessarily making him my captain, but he’s second-favourite for the week’s only G1 and costs just $275,000. He’s the first horse picked for my team.
