Cox Plate Track Bias Report: Moonee Valley is a tight velodrome circuit with sharp turns and is constructed with the Strathayr surface which is natural turf on top of a sand base. Some horses do not race well here so look for runners with previous success at this course. The ideal racing position at this track is just behind the leaders, one off the fence. An inside barrier assists in all races, but is of less importance in the Cox Plate due to the distance involved. Horses must make their run mid-race to gain a good position before the home turn or wait for a lucky run either on the inside fence or out wide.
