The Everest an Option for Concorde Stakes Winner Redzel

Redzel has marked himself as a serious contender for The Everest this season after posting a dominant win in the Group 3 Concorde Stakes (1000m) first-up this afternoon.

Jumping from the gates well, jockey Kerrin McEvoy allowed Redzel to stride forward and immediately took up the running; holding a position on the fence and ensuring that the Concorde Stakes would be run at a genuine tempo.

Kicking clear upon arriving at the final straight, the Snitzel gelding never appeared in doubt and extended to the line to beat a fast-finishing Spieth by more than a length.

Redzel was charged with carrying a race-high 60kgs in the Concorde Stakes this afternoon, but more than stamped himself as the class runner of the small field with via his dominant performance.

McEvoy delivered a gem of a ride aboard Redzel this afternoon and believes that he will only improve into his next start.

“Peter and Paul said that he was fast and to use that in the first furlong to get control and just build up from there,” McEvoy said after crossing the line.

“He’s arguably improved into this preparation.

“He deserves his spot in the field (The Everest). Everything is pointing to him having a great preparation.

“I had a look at his form and it’s funny; you’d think he’s been around for ages, but he’s actually only five-years-old!

“He’s a lovely horse and it’s great to be aboard him today. Peter and Paul are enjoying training him, I know that.”

Spieth somewhat missed the kick in the Concorde Stakes and was clearly fresh in transit, but he worked home well in the final straight to finish second and will also take plenty of benefit from the run.

Nieta worked into the clear to run third behind the two start sprinters, while consistent galloper The Monstar has potentially reached the end of his preparation and tailed off to finish fourth.
