Half-a-Length Between Redzel & Nature Strip
At Rosehill Gardens this morning, The Everest slot-holder Redzel (Snitzel) and (unlikely) The Everest aspirant Nature Strip had just a half-length separating them at the end of a 1000m trial. Sporting his traditional raceday blinkers, Redzel set a fast clip, with Nature Strip taking ground off him in the run home. A dominant sprinter, who was a little off his game at the start of the Queensland Winter Carnival, Redzel is starting to build ominously towards keeping his record intact as the only winner of The Everest to date. Like a number of short-course specialists, the son of Snitzel is expected to kick-off his seasonal campaign in the Concorde Stakes on 7 September.
