The Everest Market — $26 Canberra’s Fell Swoop
Bookies are offering $26 about star Canberra sprinter Fell Swoop to win the inaugural $10 million The Everest at Randwick on 14 October.
The All In Betting has Chautauqua heading the market at $5 from Golden Slipper winner She Will Reign and UK sprinter Caravaggio both $7 — with the latter an unlikely starter.
Other locals currently fancied by the bookies ahead of Fell Swoop are Russian Revolution, Houtzen, Spieth, Vega Magic and Ability.
Fell Swoop is working towards his first trial hit-out and is planned to resume in the Group 2 The Shorts at Randwick on George Main Stakes Day on 16 September.
Dale is preparing Fell Swoop as he would for the TJ Smith, which was Australia’s richest Weight For Age sprint prior to the Everest. It’s also run at Randwick over the 1200m.
Fell Swoop ran third in the 2017 TJ behind Chautauqua and English beaten 1.5L at $20 and having to work.
In 2016 he was beaten 1.3L in the TJ behind Chautauqua with English third at $15.
English is priced at $11 for the Everest.
