Race 1: Reginald Allen Quality (1400m)

We kick off Everest Day with the Listed Reginald Allen Quality over 1400m for the fillies, where we will be siding with A Lot More Love for the Gerald Ryan & Sterling Alexiou stable after breaking her maiden at start six last start at Newcastle over 1400m. This daughter of Sebring finished second to Macha Latte first-up this preparation who has gone on to run second in the Group 3 Gloaming Stakes by a nose on Wednesday. Now that she has broken her maiden and drawn barrier one, she can bounce and sit just behind the leaders on the rail and if this girl finds her way clear with 300m to run, she will be very strong late.


Race 2: Big Dance Wild Card (1600m)

Race two on the program is the Big Dance Wild Card where the first two horses over the line will qualify for the Big Dance on November 1. The Chris Waller trained-Solar Apex looks to be the one who is going to improve off of his last run the most after finishing ninth over 1400m at Rosehill last start. The five-year-old son of Deep Impact was working home nicely from the back of the field in the straight before he ran up behind a wall of horses, finishing ninth by under three lengths. Now that he is second-up and rising to 1600m where he has a very impressive record of four wins and four minor placings from 10 starts, Waller and his team will have him cherry ripe to book his ticket into the Big Dance in three weeks time.


Race 3: Craven Plate (1800m)

The Group 3 Craven Plate will be the third race of the day where the James Cummings-trained Cascadian looks awfully hard to beat after he smashed Numerian in the Group 2 Hill Stakes last start. This son of New Approach drops in grade from a Group 2 to a Group 3, but stays at the same weight and distance as last start. The only danger in the field will be the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained Surf Dancer who will lead for a long way, but in the end Cascadian should be winning this race.

Race 4: St Leger Stakes (2600m)

The only stayer’s race of the day will be the St Leger Stakes, where 11 horses will do battle over 2600m. The Chris Waller-trained Chalk Stream looks to be great value here at $18 with online bookmakers after running fourth last start in the Listed Tattersalls Club Cup over 2400m on September 3. Kerrin McEvoy rode this guy out of his comfort zone up on pace in what looked to be a fitness run, to get him ready for this race. The son of Sea The Stars has a very good record at this distance, recording three wins and two placings from six starts over the 2600m. With a lot of speed engaged in this race, we hope that they overdo it out front and this guy is storming over the top of them late.

Race 5: The Kosciuszko (1200m)

The $2 million Kosciuszko for the country trainers will be the co-feature on the program on Saturday where a full field of 14 will be battling it out for the $1 million winners cheque. Online bookmakers have the Brett Cavanough trained-It’s Me as the $4.80 favourite, with Far Too Easy ($5.50), Front Page ($5.50) and Handle The Truth ($7) are also in the market.

Race 6: Sydney Stakes (1200m)

The consolation race for those horses that didn’t gain a slot for The Everest is the Sydney Stakes over 1200m where 18 sprinters will burn up the turf in the lead up to the big race. The winner of the 2022 Sydney Stakes will definitely put their name up in lights for the slot holders of the 2023 Everest, but they will also take home the $1.15 million winners prize. Godolphin’s runner, Kementari, as opened up as the $3.90 favourite with online bookmakers, with In The Congo ($5.50) and Apache Chase ($6.50) sitting on the second and third lines of betting.

Race 7: The Everest (1200m)

The 2022 Everest will be feature event on the program for Saturday, with the $15 million race set to go at 4:15pm ADST. The winner of The Everest will take home a cool $6.2 million if they are able to take out the richest turf horse race in the world. Last year’s winner and race favourite, Nature Strip, heads the market with online bookmakers as the $2.20 favourite. John O’shea’s talented gelding Lost And Running sits on the second line of betting at $7, followed by Eduardo ($8.50) and Jacquinot ($10) who are all given chances to knock off the world’s best sprinter.

Race 8: Silver Eagle (1300m)

Finish in the top three in Saturday’s Silver Eagle and you automatically qualify to run in the Golden Eagle on October 29. That is what is on offer for the 14 four-year-old’s who are set to compete over 1300m for the $1 million on offer. Heading the market is last start Theo Marks Stakes runner-up Mr Mozart ($3.90), whilst Espiona ($6), Waterford ($6.50), Startantes ($6.50) and Vilana ($8.50) are all given a chance.

Race 9: Five Diamonds Prelude (1500m)

The Five Diamonds Prelude will be a Set Weights event for five-year-olds, with the winner of the race earning ballot exemption to the new $2 million Five Diamonds race on November 5 at Randwick over 1800m. The Epsom Handicap winner, albeit shared in a dead heat with Top Ranked, Ellsberg for Gerald Ryan & Sterling Alexiou will be very hard to beat dropping in grade back to his own age group. This son of Spill The Beans will have to carry 3.5kg more than he did in the Epsom Handicap, but he steps back from Group 1 level to a Set Weights race. Brenton Avdulla has stuck with this guy and he will more than likely lead or be right behind the leaders from barrier three and be extremely hard to beat over 1500m.

Race 10: Angst Stakes (1600m)

In the Group 3 Angst Stakes as the last race of the day we will be siding with the very exciting Chris Waller trained-Finepoint, who is starting to build a very impressive record after eight career starts. This daughter of Pins has won four and placed three times from her first eight starts, including a very impressive win over a decent field last start over 1400m at Rosehill on September 24. This will be her first try at Group level but considering she only rises 1kg for that last win and goes up to the 1600m, she looks like a very nice way to finish the day on a winning note.
