The Everest 2021 Field

1200m Race at Randwick racecourse

Race Time: 4:15 pm
October 16, 2021
1. Nature Strip (10)
J: James McDonald
T: Chris Waller
W: 58.5kg
Best Odds: $3.70
COMMENT: His best is clearly good enough to win. It all depends what pressure is on in front, because I do feel he is at his best when he leads and has control. He can sit outside the speed and still be effective but I feel he is better when leading. He can win, clearly…but I have him slightly down the pecking order.
2. Classique Legend (5)
J: Kerrin McEvoy
T: Les Bridge
W: 58.5kg
Best Odds: $6.00
COMMENT: It’ll be an all time training effort from Les Bridge to get this horse to win this race first up. But he has the runs on the board and I think most would agree that if he runs up to what he produced last year, I think he’ll win. I’m not going to doubt a hall of fame trainer. He knows his horse and if he’s happy, so am I. The one to beat.
3. Eduardo (7)
J: Nash Rawiller
T: Joseph Pride
W: 58.5kg
Best Odds: $6.00
COMMENT: He is a Group l winner at 1200m via the 10,000, but this is a different 1200m all together. 1200m at this level, he has been safely held in The Everest and earlier this year in the TJ Smith. The saving grace is a potential wet track. He’s one of the better swimmers in Australia so if he can get his toe in, then it’s a whole new ball game and he comes into the mix. But I do have a few others ahead of him.
4. Gytrash (1)
J: Jason Collett
T: Gordan Richards and Damien Moyle
W: 58.5kg
Best Odds: $7.00
COMMENT: I was hard against him last year and he made a mug of me when running a slashing race behind Classique Legend. But as I have said, if Classique Legend turns up similar to how he was last year, he wins. Gytrash needs to improve from 12 months ago. Has he improved? Off what I have seen, it’s a no for me. So I’m hard against him again.
5. Trekking (4)
J: Josh Parr
T: James Cummings
W: 58.5kg
Best Odds: $34
COMMENT: He’s so honest this guy and is rarely away from the good horses. The knock with him is that he can’t get the job done against the big boys and he’s a while between wins. And if the track is wet, he’ll struggle big time.
6. Masked Crusader (9)
J: Tommy Berry
T: Michael, Wayne and John Hawkes
W: 58.5kg
Best Odds: $9.00
COMMENT: If things fall into place, he can win. But, things do need to fall into place. He doesn’t want to be 10+ lengths off the speed 600m out, but given the way he races, that is what’s likely. I can’t see him giving Classique Legend a start and beat him if that horse is right. But he’s a definite first three threat.
7. Wild Ruler (11)
J: Tim Clark
T: Peter and Paul Snowden
W: 58.5kg
Best Odds: $41
COMMENT: I think on a firm deck, he has the ability to be a top six chance. That is the case in both runs this time in. But his form on wet ground speaks for itself. It is rank and I doubt he’ll beat a runner home if this track is wet.
8. The Inferno (12)
J: Regan Bayliss
T: Cliff Brown
W: 58.5kg
Best Odds: $20
COMMENT: On form I’m saying no. The McEwen form is rank and the 1-3 from the Moir were comfortably held by Nature Strip in the Concorde. The form does tie and off it, I think The Inferno struggles. That is on current form. But off what he did in Singapore, he lapped up fast run 1200m races, and that is what he’ll get here. But in four editions of The Everest, the form has been Sydney predominantly.
9. Embracer (3)
J: Jean Van Overmeire
T: Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott
W: 58.5kg
Best Odds: $81
COMMENT: He’s a horse in ripping form but is probably the best of what is left and available. He would have been extremely hard to beat in the Sydney Stakes. Good on connections for getting a slot but I think he struggles.
10. Lost And Running (2)
J: Hugh Bowman
T: John O'Shea
W: 58.5kg
Best Odds: $34
COMMENT: The only way Lost And Running was going to be considered was if he drew a soft gate and voila, he has gate two. He's had no luck in two runs back from a break but that will all change here with the gate to do no work behind the speed and go back to the Autumn, he did run times of a Group l horse. Must for exotics.
11. Libertini (8)
J: Sam Clipperton
T: Anthony Cummings
W: 56.5kg
Best Odds: $34
COMMENT: If you knew she was 100% right and would get a firm deck, I would have her as a knockout chance. But the trials have been plain, the piece of work between races at Rosehill last Wednesday, the chance of a wet track…letting her go through to the keeper.
12. Home Affairs (6)
J: Glen Boss
T: Chris Waller
W: 53kg
Best Odds: $10
COMMENT: The race is better I feel when there is the 3YO element and he is that. The question being is he a one trick pony? Led and spanked them in the Heritage, then led Nature Strip in the jumpout last Wednesday. Can he lead throughout and win an Everest? I’m saying no. If he is able to take a sit and still be effective, then they are cooking with gas and he’s in with a shout.
13e Kementari
T: James Cummings
W: 58.5kg
14e Signore Fox
T: Peter & Paul Snowden
W: 58.5kg
15e Standout
