Redzel Ready for Concorde

Wednesday, 29th August 2018

Co-trainer Paul Snowden says Redzel (Snitzel-Millrich, by Rubiton) may be ridden a little quieter than usual when he launches his Everest campaign in the Group 3 Concorde Stakes (1000m) at Randwick on Saturday. Redzel will carry top weight of 60.5kg in a field of nine that includes fellow Everest contender Invincible Star. "We’re extremely happy with how he’s come back," Snowden told racenet. "There’s no change in the horse but he’s had a good break and I think it’s what he needed." Snowden added: "Pre-acceptances there looks good speed, so it’s going to be a nice race for him. Every chance he won’t be leading on Saturday. I wouldn’t imagine he’ll lead Invincible Star. We’ll ride our own race." Redzel will represent slot-holder Yulong Investments when he defends his title in the $13 million The Everest (1200m) at Royal Randwick on 13 October. TAB currently have Redzel listed as the $6 second favourite behind Trapeze Artist at $4.50.
