The Concorde Stakes (1000m) at Randwick this Saturday looks a race in two and that is well and truly reflected in the market.
The favourite, surprise surprise, is Nature Strip at $1.35 given he’s rated as one of the best sprinters in the world, certainly the best sprinter in Australia, and has scorched the Sydney turf in trials to get ready.
His main threat will be the SA raider and fellow Everest runner Gytrash, who beat Nature Strip when they last resumed in the Lightning. He is at $3.80 with Jason Collett to steer.
Next best is Splintex and Dirty Work, both at $16.
