The Everest Form Guide & Tips


1. Nature Strip ($4.20) Bet @ Sportsbet

A class act but Classique Legend ran straight past him last year without a worry in the world. He is a worry over 1200m, and although we’re not completely leaving him out, he’s not going on top.

Barrier 10 could force him to do plenty of work in the early stages, which will hurt him late.

2. Classique Legend ($4.40) Bet @ Sportsbet

Last year’s winner that went to Hong Kong and didn’t live up to expecations. His trial form since arriving back in Australia has been terrific, including three trial wins at Randwick.

We wouldn’t be ruling him out at each-way odds, especially if he’s anywhere near his best.

3. Eduardo (Best Each Way – $6.50) Bet @ Sportsbet

A quality type that fought nicely when beating Nature Strip last start and he continues to be underrated at this level.

He is a nine-time winner who owns two wins at Randwick, so punters should enjoy the $6.50 available with bookmakers.

His odds are dropping, so take the current odds.

4. Gytrash ($8.50) Bet @ Sportsbet

Another quality type who didn’t get much luck when running third last time out. He should have finished closer, and he’s a 10-time winner with plenty of upside.

Getting the inside barrier is ideal and if he gets clear running room in the straight, he should be right around the mark.

5. Trekking ($34) Bet @ Sportsbet

Not in winning form, and although his recent form includes back-to-back third placings, we can’t see him figure in the finish agaisnt this field.

A big money earner, but we would have liked to see him win a race recently.

6. Masked Crusader (Best Bet – $9) Bet @ Sportsbet

Punters get value odds for a talented sprinter, who will soak up the early speed and try finish over the top of them.

He has a similar racing style to Chautauqua, and considering he’s from the same stable, he could emulate his former stablemate.

$9 is a price well worth taking for an exciting prospect.

7. Wild Ruler ($46) Bet @ Sportsbet

Scored a lovely win in the Group 1 Moir Stakes at Moonee Valley, but there is more depth to this field. Profiteer was the favourite for that race, so that should put it in perspective.

Barrier 11 won’t help his chances, and we would prefer to see him in something a little easier. Four wins from five starts at Randwick is a positive.

8. The Inferno ($23) Bet @ Sportsbet

The former Singapore runner looked good winning two back and he lost no admirers when running second last time out.

Unsure if he’s up to this level, but we wouldn’t be surprised if he figured in the finish. A first four chance at best.

9. Embracer ($67) Bet @ Sportsbet

A speedy type that has been going well this season, but not at this level. Likely to sit on the pace and get outgunned late.

10. Lost and Running (Best Roughie – $19) Bet @ Sportsbet

Better when fourth last start and he hasn’t had much luck this preparation. Drawn to get all favours and we can’t turn down $19 for a quality type.

He would love the conditions to have a bit of moisture, so the early signs are good.

11. Libertini ($34) Bet @ Sportsbet

An enigmatic type who hasn’t raced since April when running eighth behind Nature Strip. She is talented, but she is too risky to have in our selections.

She opened at $26 and her odds have drifted steadily since, which isn’t surprising.

12. Home Affairs ($9) Bet @ Sportsbet

There was good market confidence last start and the three-year-old colt did everything right. He could have matured nicely this season, which is exciting.

After opening at $11, his odds have firmed, which is a good sign. He goes into the mix with only 53kg on his back.


Kementari – $81
Signore Fox – $126
Standout – $126
Chat – $201
