The Everest: Why Each Horse Can & Can’t Win

October 16, 2020

The Everest: Why Each Horse Can & Can’t Win
The Everest is only in it’s fourth year but has stamped it’s reputation as being the premier sprint race in the country & has attracted the best sprinters from across the country. We have put together our thoughts on why each horse can and can’t win.

1. Nature Strip

  • Jockey: J McDonald
  • Trainer C Waller
  • Barrier: 5
  • Odds: $4.80
Why He Can win:

⊕ He has been regarded as the best sprinter in the country for a long time now & if he can bring his best this weekend he can jump in front, control the race & win

Why He Can’t Win:

⊗ He has seemed below his best and has been off the ball mentally this preparation after playing up in the barriers in a trial 21/09/20.

⊗ There also looks to be a bit of pressure in this race so if he were to step away slowly he could find himself in a tricky position.

2. Trekking

  • Jockey: J Parr
  • Trainer: J Cummings
  • Barrier: 4
  • Odds: $11
Why He Can win:

He managed to finish third last year and looks to have returned in fine form with a solid second in the G1 Moir last start.

He also defeated Gytrash in the G1 Goodwood earlier this year.

Why He Can’t Win:

The 6yo has travelled all around the country in the last 12 months.

He ran in The Everest last year then traveled to WA to run in the Winterbottom then back to Randwick after a spell, down to SA for the Goodwood, up to QLD for the Stradbroke before a spell, down to VIC for the Moir before coming up for The Everest again. Talk about covering more miles than Bourke & Wills.



3. Classique Legend

  • Jockey: K McEvoy
  • Trainer: L Bridge
  • Barrier: 6
  • Odds: $4.60
Why He Can win:

⊕ He has drawn perfectly where he should get to settle off the speed which will allow him to show his devastating turn of foot late.

⊕ Showed he is the one to beat when winning The G2 Shorts first up.

Why He Can’t Win:

⊗ Unproven at the top level.

⊗ Has never won third up
