The spring preparation for Nature Strip – TAB’s slotholder for the TAB Everest – begins on Saturday in the Concorde Stakes at Royal Randwick and betting is available on how far Nature Strip will stretch his winning streak this campaign.
Backdated to his victories in the Challenge Stakes at Randwick on March 7 and the TAB T.J. Smith Stakes at Randwick on April 4 – Day 1 of The Championships – options are available on Nature Strip extending his winning run from three races all the way up to six or more races before 2020 concludes.
The Chris Waller-trained six-year-old gelding is currently the $1.40 ‘All In’ favourite at TAB for Saturday’s Group 3 Concorde Stakes at Randwick and is the $2.60 favourite for the $15 million TAB Everest at Randwick to be staged on October 17.
Since returning from a spell, Nature Strip won his first trial by three lengths over 900 metres at Rosehill on August 4 and his second trial by five-and-a-half lengths over 900 metres at Rosehill on August 18.
