James Harron slot runner Redzel continues to impress in the countdown to the $10m The Everest (1200m) at Randwick on October 14  with an impressive barrier trial win at Rosehill today.

Melbourne Cup winner jockey Kerrin McEvoy, who will be riding Redzel in The Everest, was on board today for the five year old’s win in the 1000m trial.

McEvoy had Redzel quickly out of the barriers and sat behind the leader Gambler’s Blues until well into the straight and then let the gun sprinter lengthen stride in the run to the line to record a half a length win.

Rival Everest contender Deploy was never fully extended and was able to fall into third position in the same trial.

Trainer Peter Snowden, who prepares his team alongside of his son and co-trainer Paul, said that Redzel’s trial performance was just what the Snitzel gelding was sent out to do.

“That was just what we wanted to see leading up to the race Saturday week,” Snowden said.

“It was just perfect; he jumped, had something to chase down and pinned his ears back without having any pressure applied to him.

“A good trial and we’re very happy with him. We’ll keep him ticking over now until Saturday week and he’ll be there in good order.”

Redzel is the winner of his last four starts which includes a Group 1 victory in the $700,000 James Boag’s Premium Doomben 10000 (1200m) at Doomben during the 2017 Brisbane Winter Carnival.

Redzel has also been super impressive in his two wins at Randwick since resuming from a spell in the Group 3 $150,000 Concorde Stakes (1000m) on September 2 and in the Group 2 $200,000 Bowermans Office Furniture Shorts (1100m) on September 16.

All twelve slots for The Everest have been filled now with the announcement over the weekend that the Kris Lees trained Clearly Innocent and the Lindsay Park trained three year old filly Tulip will join the other ten contenders.

The Gary Portelli trained Golden Slipper winner She Will Reign shot to the top of The Everest market order and is now the $4.60 favourite at Ladbrokes.com.au following her gutsy performance to win the Group 1 $500,000 Charter Keck Cramer Moir Stakes (1000m) at The Valley last Friday night.
