The Everest 2022 Tips

The Everest 2022 Favourite - Nature Strip

The once enigmatic sprinter did Australia proud and brought back what racing fans down under love to see - giving the Poms a galloping lesson at Royal Ascot.

That 4.5 length King's Stand romp made it Group 1 win number nine for the son of Nicconi, who is back to defend his Everest crown at Randwick in 2022.

He showed no ill-effects from the overseas travel, with a strong victory via The Shorts on September 17 and he arrives here from that run.

With Shades Of Rose, Joyful Fortune and Eduardo all drawn to his inside, I'm going against the grain in regards to the wide gate, and saying it's a clear negative here.

The Everest 2022 Best Bet - Lost And Running

With a wide and searching effort for third, Lost And Running recorded easily the run (outside of Nature Strip) on return in The Shorts.

That performance had the John O'Shea-trained six-year-old as the one to beat in the Premiere Stakes on Oct 1, where he duly saluted.

Given he did hit the front a little early and isn't as comfortable on heavy going, the margin did flatter the likes of Masked Crusader and Mazu.

If Nature Strip is vulnerable with less favours on a hot tempo, then this is the other form runner with the gun map, that is ready to explode here.

The Everest 2022 Value Bet - Jacquinot

We saw a three-year-old in Yes Yes Yes take out The Everest in 2019, another son of Rubick who rolled some ageing sprinters in the process.

While Nature Strip has gone on to become world class, along this being a slightly stronger field, Jacquinot is also a more talented horse than Yes Yes Yes.

He's a more furnished galloper now, rolling spruik Godolphin colt Aft Cabin first-up, before a Golden Rose triumph over the Caulfield Guineas winner.

Freshened-up and back to 1200m, which is arguably his preferred trip, this Victorian ideally wants an upgrade on the current Heavy 8 surface.

Nature Strip is a superstar and clearly the one to beat, but there's much more to this particular set-up/map then him simply loving a wide draw.

Lost And Running won't get a better chance to roll the champ, while three-year-old Jacquinot looms as the x factor.
