The Everest favourite Chautauqua was unextended in a 1020m barrier trial at Rosehill today as he revved up his return to the race track for the 2017 Spring Carnival in the Group 2 $200,000 The Shorts (1100m) at Randwick on September 16.

Brenton Avdulla was in the saddle again after he partnered Chautauqua into third place in a 800m Warwick Farm barrier trial on August 25 and once again the Team Hawkes trained grey was under a hard hold as he crossed the line in today’s trial in fifth place behind Trapeze Artist.

“He trialled nicely enough, just did as much as he was asked,’’ Avdulla said.

“His attitude is good, he stepped well, he obviously got back and travelled quite comfortably and finished his work off.

“It’s a nice little stepping stone for the program they have for him.’’

Chautauqua is the ruling $4.80 favourite at Ladbrokes.com.au for the $10m The Everest (1200m) at Randwick on October 14 ahead of the firming $5 second pick Vega Magic who staked his claims for The Everest with an all the way win in the Group 1 $1m New Zealand Bloodstock Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield last Saturday.

Chautauqua is the reigning Australian sprinting champion and is a Randwick 1200m specialist, the same course and distance for The Everest, as he has proven with three consecutive wins in the Group 1 $2.5m Darley T J Smith Stakes (1200m) at Randwick during the last three Sydney Autumn Carnivals.

The Everest rider for Chautauqua is still undecided as his regular jockey Tommy Berry, who was aboard for his three T J Smith Stakes wins, is now riding in Hong Kong and is unable to secure a release from the Hong Kong Jockey Club to ride in Sydney that day.

Melbourne jockey Dwayne Dunn has also had plenty of success on the Encosta De Lago seven year old and is in the mix as is Sydney’s premier jockey Hugh Bowman.

“All I can say is I hope so,” Bowman told The Daily Telegraph.

“He is a great horse, no doubt about it, and if it all worked out it’d be lovely.”

Early market order for the 2017 The Everest at Ladbrokes.com.au: $4.80 Chautauqua, $5 Vega Magic, $6.50 She Will Reign, $11 English, Houtzen, $13 Brave Smash, Redkirk Warrior, Redzel, $15 Pariah, $21 Russian Revolution, $26 Clearly Innocent, Fell Swoop, Formality, Limato, Spieth, Terravista, Tulip, $33 Bound For Nowhere, $34 or better the rest.

    The battery, while removable in the new R2 version, is not easily accessible to remove and swap out. If a battery is not going to last a full 5 hours, then I need to be able to swap it out with a fresh one so I can play for at LEAST 4 hours (providing that one battery can (and should!) give me two hours.) I anticipate some overseas travel, and a 14 hour trip will NOT go by fast if I can only play on one battery worth of juice.

    Este tour e como diz o carlos sastre. O ciclismo é um desporto de homens duros, que vão a luta, já tenho saudade do antigo ciclismo, que era quedas atras de quedas e os ciclistas levantavam-se e iam a luta… As quedas, as avarias, os furos faz parte do ciclismo, por muito mau que seja para os atletas o que é certo e que traz espectaculo. Aconteceu ao shleck? e quem diz que para o ano nao acontece ao contador… ele ganhou com todo o mérito, Força contador

    While I disassociate myself from VR’s bad attitude, I have to agree that the position of the Palestinians is dire and growing worse, and BDS is simply not going to save them.Only force can save them. Israel does not want peace and must be forced into it.
