Cool­more eye­ing off Ever­est

The Sportsman Midweek - - Latest Trackwork Times -

CAR­AVAG­GIO has firmed to $7 sec­ond favouritism for The Ever­est with Cool­more’s Tom Mag­nier con­firm­ing the race is a tar­get for the un­beaten colt.

said Cool­more bought a slot in $10 mil­lion race with Car­avag­gio at the fore­front of the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s mind.

The three-year-old added the Group 1 Com­mon­wealth Cup to his record at last week’s Royal As­cot meet­ing to take his record

to six wins. “Ai­dan (O’Brien) is very ex­cited. He says he the fastest horse that he’s trained,” Mag­nier told Sky Sports Ra­dio.

“We took a slot in The Ever­est. We have had him mind for our slot for while.”

Car­avag­gio is next ex­pected to contest the July Cup at New­mar­ket against older horses.

Chau­tauqua is the $4.60 favourite for The Ever­est which will be run on Oc­to­ber 14 over the 1200m-course at Rand­wick,

scene of his three TJ Smith Stakes wins.

Golden Slip­per win­ner She Will Reign is at $8 and is back in Gary Portelli’s sta­ble get­ting ready for the spring.

“The plan is to give her a lead-up in Moir Stakes in Mel­bourne,” Portelli said.

She Will Reign will run the race for Yulong In­vest­ments while mul­ti­ple Group 1 placeget­ter Fell Swoop will rep­re­sent slot-holder Wil­liam Inglis and Son.

The TAB has bought a slot in the sub­scrip­tion only race and is ex­pected to an­nounce its choice in early July.

The Aus­tralian Turf Club has called for ten­ders for its spot with that process yet to be com­pleted.

EX­PAT Aus­tralian trainer John Size has set a Hong Kong record with his 92nd win for the sea­son at Sha Tin.

He brought up the mile­stone when Thewiz­ard­o­foz won Sun­day’s Group 3 Premier Cup, the fi­nal race of the Hong Kong sea­son.

Size has a 15-win lead over John Moore in the train­ers’ cham­pi­onship with five meet­ings re­main­ing.
