Redzel Into The Red For Victory Stakes
This coming Saturday will provide former champion sprinter Redzel (Snitzel) with an opportunity to return to the winners' enclosure. Winner of the only two runnings of the multi-million The Everest (1200m), Redzel has been pencilled in as a short-priced $1.80 all-in early favourite after nominations for Eagle Farm's weight-for-age Gr2 Victory Stakes (1200m), despite finishing in sixth position (beaten more than 5-lengths) behhind Santa Ana Lane in the Gr1 T.J. Smith Stakes. Although there have been 11 early nominations for the race, among them Winter Bride, I Am Excited, Jonker, I'm A Ripper and Stella Victoria, noms have been extended until Tuesday 9.00am. From his previous two visits to Queensland, Redzel finished fourth in 2018's Gr1 Doomben Ten Thousand after winning the race in 2017.
