Despite having to return from a Royal Ascot trip and going into the 2022 spring as an eight-year-old, Nature Strip ($4) is still a clear favourite with bookmaker.com.au to defend his crown.

Rated equal best horse in the world with Pegasus World Cup Winner Life Is Good, the son of Nicconi has been a model of consistency following a poor showing in the 2022 Spring.

Classique Legend sits on the second line of betting, with the six-year-old nearing in on a comeback for trainer Les Bridge.

Arguably the most talented sprinter in the world when firing, the popular grey has had many injury setbacks since winning this feature in 2020, including a fifth in the 2021 edition and beaten just two lengths despite contesting that first-up.

Up-and-comer Mazu and dual Group One winner Home Affairs are also at a quote of $9, albeit the latter appears likely to be retired to stud should he prove successful at Royal Ascot.

Rising nine-year-old Eduardo ($10) and Lost In Running ($11) also feature highly in The Everest betting for 2022.
