GODOLPHIN EVEREST SLOT TO BE DECIDED

With nearly all the Everest slots filled with gun runners the training powerhouse of Godolphin are yet to decide which one of their stable stars will contest the world’s richest turf race later this month

Everest Trophy

Godolphin have confirmed however they have narrowed the choices down to two with warhorse Trekking and up and comer Paulele leading the charge for a $15m starting berth.

Trekking is believed to have the edge in running at the moment and is expected to line up for his Third consecutive Everest. However, the stable are expected to give Paulele one last chance to impress with a run this weekend in the Group 2 Roman Consul at Royal Randwick this weekend.

Paulele has been in solid form in recent weeks, most recently chasing an impressive Home Affairs all the way in the Heritage Stakes at Rosehill Gardens. He currently sits as a $15 shot in the Everest All In Markets.

On the other hand, Trekking currently sits as a $21 shot for the $15m contest, with both Godolphin runners sat behind the Les Bridge trained and last year’s winner Classique Legend at $4.50 in betting. 

The Godolphin camp are likely to wait until after the weekend to decide on who will line up for the middle eastern stable with submissions not required until 9am Tuesday morning and Godolphin stable boss Vin Cox said they intend to maximise the time available.

“The intention is to run Paulele in the Roman Consul Stakes on Saturday,” Cox said.

“If he was to run particularly well then we will look at whether he is our choice for The Everest.”

Regardless of who is selected both runners appear to be on target to perform well in the race with Trekking finishing quickly and placing third behind Wild Ruler in the Moir Stakes last month.
