Punters have put faith in master trainer Les Bridge with the popular grey Classique Legend, who will take the somewhat unusual approach of defending his Everest crown first-up.

At $4 with Sportsbet, he shades Nature Strip for favouritism, a now seven-year-old who has been beaten in both Everest attempts to date, but has returned to arguably career best form this year, winning three from five including a TJ Smith victory over the Randwick 1200m back in the autumn.

On the third line of betting is Masked Crusader ($6.50), who bounced back from his second-up defeat to take out the Premiere Stakes on October 2.

Eduardo appears as slight query at 1200m in this company, but has won four of his last five starts, including the The Shorts on September 18, which is considered the key Everest lead-up.

The eight-year-old rounds out the single figure chances for the 2021 Everest at $8.50 from Gytrash ($11), who was unlucky for third behind Eduardo and Nature Strip via that same lead-up event.
