Hong Kong-based Romantic Warrior denied Mr Brightside and Alligator Blood to record a famous victory in the 2023 Cox Plate - and is favoured to go back-to-back in the Spring Carnival feature.

The Danny Shum-trained galloper subsequently returned home to Hong Kong and brought up another narrow feature win, with the six-year-old holding off a brave Luxembourg when triumphant in the 2023 Hong Kong Cup on December 10.

At $6 with PlayUp, Romantic Warrior is favoured to defend his Cox Plate crown in 2024, and he's also the only runner at a single-figure quote in the futures market for this major.

Alligator Blood ($11) won back-to-back Group 1s before a third in the 2023 Cox Plate and with the seven-year-old winless from three attempts on this circuit, his Moonee Valley record is a concern.

Mr Brightside, Fangirl and Dubai Honour share a $12 quote on the third line of betting, and the latter will create plenty of interest should he return to Australia, as the William Haggas-trained gelding bolted in with two Sydney Group 1s over the 2023 Autumn Carnival.

Militarize ($13) should've finished closer in the 2023 Cox Plate and given he was a three-year-old taking on older horses for the first time in his career via that attempt, he could be the big improver as a more mature horse 12 months later.
