14/10/19 Randwick Races: The Everest Final Field 2019

Redzel eyes off three-peat

Distance 1,200m
Track  Royal Randwick
Prizemoney $14,000,000
2018 winner

Redzel ($7.50)


The Everest, the world's richest race on turf is Sydney's premier weight-for-age sprint race. 

Redzel, the winner of the inaugural Everest, claimed back-to-back titles in 2018 after dominating a quality field of sprinters.

A third Everest victory would take his career earnings beyond $21 million and only $5 million behind wonder mare Winx. 

The 2019 edition of the Everest is arguably the most competitive yet. The majority of slot holders have had their horses locked in early, with many trainers mapping out their plan to peak well in advance. 

The early markets prior to the barrier draw held on Tuesday night at Sydney's Opera House, have the Victorian Santa Ana Lane listed as the favourite.

The winner of the Group One TJ Smith Stakes over this track and distance impressed at his first-up run this campaign and looks ready to peak on second-up. 

Sitting on the second-line of betting is the Gregory Hickman trained Pierata. The son of Pierro defeated Everest rivals Classique Legend and Redzel in good fashion last start in The Shorts.  

The unknown quantity of the field is undoubtedly the Aiden O'Brien trained Ten Sovereigns. He'll make his debut on Australian soil as Coolmore's slot representative, having won four of his seven career starts including the Group 1 July Stakes over 1207m at Newmarket. 


Track Condition: Good 4

Rail Position: True Position

Weather Forecast: Fine weather with temperatures in the mid 20's are predicted in the lead-up to Saturday, with no rain in sight. 

Predicted Bias: A dry track is predicted which will no doubt set up for some quick times. If they keep the irrigation to a minimum this week leaders could be set to get speed map favours on a fast track.

SANTA ANA LANE Mark Zahra $ 4.60
PIERATA Tommy Berry $ 5.00
