Lindsay Park finds an­other Ever­est con­tender with Tulip

The Sportsman Midweek - - Latest Trackwork Times -

GOLDEN Slip­per placeget­ter Tulip will rep­re­sent Cool­more in The Ever­est, giv­ing Lindsay Park three run­ners in the $10 mil­lion race.

The team also has Red­kirk War­rior and Vega Magic in The Ever­est rep­re­sent­ing slot-hold­ers Star En­ter­tain­ment Group and Max Whitby re­spec­tively.

Cool­more opted not to bring three­year-old sprinter Car­avag­gio from Ire­land but is a part-owner of Tulip, a daugh­ter of its stal­lion Pierro.

Se­nior trainer David Hayes said it was a great re­sult for the sta­ble to have three rep­re­sen­ta­tives in 1200m race at Rand­wick on Oc­to­ber 14.

“They (Cool­more) thought she was as good an op­tion as what was avail­able,” Hayes said. “She can work with Group 1 horses if you sprint her and they got a bit of heart out of the Golden Slip­per form show­ing up.

“She loomed up in Slip­per (when third to She Will Reign) but didn’t quite get there.

“She’ll be a long shot in the race but I bet she beats more than what beats her.”

Hayes said they were still look­ing for a jockey to ride the filly at 51kg.

The other fil­lies in the race, She Will Reign and Houtzen, will be rid­den by Corey Brown and Jeff Lloyd.

Re­gan Bayliss ride New­mar­ket Hand­i­cap win­ner Red­kirk War­rior with Craig Wil­liams aboard Vega Magic.

The 12-horse field was com­pleted on Sun­day when Damion Flower chose Satur­day’s Group 2 Pre­miere Stakes third placeget­ter Clearly In­no­cent to fill his slot over the win­ner In Her Time.

The win­ner of Group 1 Kingston Smith Cup dur­ing the Bris­bane win­ter car­ni­val, Clearly In­no­cent will be rid­den by Hugh Bow­man.

She Will Reign, win­ner of the Group 1 Moir Stakes on her re­turn on Fri­day night, has as­sumed $4.60 favouritism over Chau­tauqua who fin­ished sixth in the Pre­miere and is now at $6.

Full field TAB fixed odds: She Will Reign ($4.60), Chau­tauqua ($6), Vega Magic ($6), Redzel ($7), Red­kirk War­rior ($8) English ($9), Clearly In­no­cent ($11), De­ploy ($11), Brave Smash ($26), Houtzen ($26), Fell Swoop ($51), Tulip ($51).
