Trained by Yoshito Yahagi, six-year-old mare Lys Gracieux has raced 20 times for five wins and 12 minor placings. She brings excellent form to the table, including a last start win in the Group 1 Takarazuka (2200m) at Hanshin. 

Lys Gracieux was runner up in the Group 1 Hong Kong Vase (2400m) and third in the Group 1 QE II Cup (2000m) at Sha Tin. She is $3.50 to win the Cox Plate from barrier 15.

Richard Litt trains three-year-old colt Castelvecchio who finished second behind Shadow Hero in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m). Winner of the Champagne Stakes (1600m) at two, Castelvecchio is $8 to capture the Cox Plate from barrier four with 49.5kg. 


Cape Of Good Hope is trained by David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig. His win in the Caulfield Stakes was his first Australian run. He has won two from 10 prior to arriving in Australia. Cape Of Good Hope has barrier eight and is a $10 chance.
