Mystic Journey installed as Cox Plate favourite
Tasmanian mare Mystic Journey has been installed as $4.50 favourite at TAB to win the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley.
Following the release of nominations, Mystic Journey is a clear top pick in the TAB ‘All In’ market at this early stage as she prepares to follow in the footsteps on Winx.
Mystic Journey is in front of Godolphin representative Avilius ($6.00), French Group winner Danceteria as well as another of the Blue army representatives in Hartnell ($11).
All-Star Mile winner Mystic Journey is due to return to racing on Saturday week at Caulfield in what will be her first step towards the weight-for-age championship of Australasia.
“Mystic Journey is a very popular horse and I would suggest she will be a big liability for us should she take her place in the Cox Plate field,” said TAB’s Andrew Georgiou.
