Fell Swoop Everest campaign continues with this Saturday's Premiere Stakes
Matt Dale’s Fell Swoop finished sixth first-up in the group 2 Shorts (1100m) just ahead of champion sprinter Chautauqua at Randwick two weeks ago.
It marked the first clash between the geldings ahead of a showdown in the $10 million Everest (1200m), the world's richest race on turf, in Sydney on October 14.
“I was a bit anxious and nervous first-up for such a big campaign, so it was good to get that run out of the way and he was right on expectation with where he's at," Dale said.
Fell Swoop will take on the mighty grey again this Saturday in the Group 2 Premiere Stakes along with the likes of English, and 2015 Black Opal Stakes winner Takedown.
"He's come through well and we'll look for natural improvement off the back off his last start, he's building nicely and I'm really looking forward to The Everest” Dale said.
