Kementari has been ruled out of contention for The Everest with Godolphin deciding not to pursue a start in the $13 million sprint.

Trainer James Cummings says the four-year-old will step up to 1600 metres next in the Makybe Diva Stakes at Flemington on Saturday week.

Kementari finished a close second in last Saturday’s Group One Memsie Stakes won by Humidor.

Cummings said the 1400m-race had always been the one that would decide whether Kementari stepped up in distance or was set for the 1200m of The Everest on October 13.

β€œWe had a good chat about it as a team and decided to take it (Everest) off the table for Kementari this spring,” Cummings told Sky Sports Radio.

β€œThe Memsie was always going to be the race we walked away from to make the decision, Everest or not.

β€œHe will be nominated for Makybe Diva next Saturday.”

There are two slots left for The Everest held by the Australian Turf Club and a group headed by Max Whitby.
