English Chases Another Everest Berth

By Brad Gray

Has English announced herself worthy of another shot at The Everest?

Her co-trainer Adrian Bott certainly believes so after watching the five-year-old take out the G1 Doomben 10,000 beating the likes of Redzel and In Her Time, two of the three runners that have already booked their spot in the race.

Redzel was typically brave finishing fourth, with Impending and Le Romain filling the places while In Her Time finished ninth.

"It's all open to her at the moment but with a win like that you've got to see whether we can keep her in training and look at an Everest again," Bott said.

"We came up here very confident that she was feeling very well within herself and we freshened her up deliberately after the TJ (Smith) to bring her through this carnival, and the bit of give in the ground has probably been a key too.

"She has been a hugely talented mare throughout her career and over the last 18 months we've been able to make genuine excuses for her. Today everything fell into place."

Tim Clark was having his first ride on English, who finished sixth in the inaugural running of The Everest, but rode her perfectly, stalking the speed before accelerating when clear.

"She was able to get out and travel really well in behind them, we just needed a little bit of luck on the turn having got onto Redzel's back and she was really strong late," Clark said.

"She has got a dynamite turn of foot but it's only about a furlong so it's important she is not too far off them."

English firmed from $51 into $15 for the 2018 Everest with TAB, with the $13 million feature to be run on the 13th of October at Royal Randwick.
