Winx unbackable odds to win Cox Plate 2017

Winx is at short odds of $1.15 to win her third Cox Plate on Saturday and sportsbet has framed some novelty markets for punters looking for some value on the superstar mare.

The online bookmaker is offering $3.00 that Winx will break the Moonee Valley track record and $2.80 to win by eight or more lengths.

Race caller Matt Hill also figures in the markets at $2.00 to call Winx a “legend” during the race and $1.60 to mention three-time Cox Plate winner, Kingston Town, in this call.

Jockey Hugh Bowman is $9.00 to cry in his post-race interview.

“Winx is already a legend so Matt Hill is a very good chance of saying that in his call. Mr cool Hughie Bowman is probably not going to cry, but it’ll be a special moment if she equals the great Kingston Town’s three Cox Plate,’’ said’s Will Byrne.
