With Editor Garry Robinson

Continuing rain expected in Melbourne this week has really thrown open the Cox Plate with Lonhro no sure thing to take the Race Of The Century. With $3,000,000 on offer there will be no second chances and every runner will be flat chat to win it.

Northerly, unlike most West Australian gallopers, has no aversion to the likelihood of a damp track and Sunline is no slouch in the wet either. If pushed, you could probably make a case for every runner, even the 50/1 rank outsiders Assertive Lad and Ustinov.


In today's (23/10/2002) Sydney Daily Telegraph, Ken Callendar makes an absolute goose of himself in suggesting that the Cox Plate would be best staged other than at the tight Moonee Valley track. He makes a case that the race would be a better race if it were staged at Flemington with it's roomy flat track and long stretches.

It may be news to Ken Callendar but they already have a great race at Flemington called The Australian Cup in the autumn but it has so far failed to match the Cox Plate for it's atmosphere and excitement that is created by it's very presence at Moonee Valley.

In a final dig at Moonee Valley, Ken Callaendar hits out at the expense of $40 for entry and $160 for access to the Member's area. If as he suggests the race were to be run at Flemington, the admission and reserved seat prices would have to be on a par with the much higher prices for the Melbourne Cup. I'm sure that anybody who has paid the price to be there this Saturday for Sunline's final fling will be sure to agree it has been money well spent.
