Redzel kicked off his 2018 Spring Carnival campaign with a sizzling win in the Group 3 $160,000 Concorde Stakes (1000m) at Randwick on September 1 and will get all the favours again from barrier three in the nine horse Shorts field with Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle again.

Redzel is currently listed as the $1.80 favourite to score back to back wins in the Shorts and the Peter and Paul Snowden trained sprinter will consolidate his spot at the top of the betting with Ladbrokes.com.au for the $13m The Everest (1200m) at Randwick on October 13 with another victory.

Peter Snowden has reported that Redzel has pulled up in great shape after his Concorde Stakes win and has shown improvement with that run under his belt.

“He’s tightened up nicely, his coat hasn’t come all the way through but it looks better,’’ Snowden told Racing New South Wales News Desk.

“He took some benefit from that last run so he is on track again.’’

“It is difficult to win all the time but a horse like him, while he’s not a Winx, he’s very genuine.’’

“He tries so hard every time he goes out. He handles it wet and dry, good gates and bad gates, the variables that stop other horses.

“He just does everything right and most of the time you are going to win or run well rather than need luck to get the best out of them.’’

The Shorts in turning into a mini Everest with Redzel taking on several Everest rivals, Invincible Star ($5), English ($5.50) and Brave Smash ($8.50).

The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained Invincible Star (James McDonald, barrier 2) set the pace first up but couldn’t hold off the challenges of Redzel and Kaepernick to finish third in the Concorde Stakes while her stablemate English (Tim Clark, barrier 9) will be having her first start since a Brisbane Winter Carnival campaign that saw her win the Group 1 $700,000 Kirin Doomben 10,000 (1200m) at Doomben.

The Darren Weir trained Brave Smash (Hugh Bowman, barrier 5)  will be fitter for one run back from a spell when third to Ball Of Muscle in the Group 3 $150,000 The Heath 1100 Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield on September 1.

Ball Of Muscle (Glyn Schofield, barrier 6) will also be lining up in the Shorts and is marked as a $10 chance with Ladbrokes.com.au.
