Money talks ANY language.

Look at England and the sheikhs.

But that is for another thread .

Chris is really pissing me off.

No slot, no worries: Chris Waller still eyes The Everest with Nature Strip

35 minutes ago by AAP

Talented sprinter Nature Strip will be given every chance to stake a claim for a berth in The Everest.

Premier Sydney trainer Chris Waller has been working hard to get Nature Strip to settle in his work and trials with a view to extending his repertoire to run 1200 metres comfortably.

Only one of Nature Strip's 10 wins has been beyond 1100m, the distance of his Group One win in The Galaxy earlier this year.

Waller said while Nature Strip is yet to secure a slot in the $14 million feature in October, he will aim to have him ready - even if he's on standby as emergency - if required.

"I think he has come back a more mature horse again and with him losing those antics of being seen as a 'go fast and hope for the best' type horse, we are starting to see some tractability in him," Waller said.

"He had a trial last week at Rosehill with James McDonald aboard who said that it is the best he has been.

"I think he is a perfect example for a horse to pick up one of the last remaining slots because he is a proven Group One performer.

"I know everyone is just waiting to see him settle better and I have just about done it."

Waller is already training West Australian mares Arcadia Queen and Enticing Star for The Everest.

Both are owned by Bob Peters and have secured starts in the race on October 19 with Enticing Star to run in the slot held by Waller and Arcadia Queen running for The Star.

The two were withdrawn from barrier trials on Monday with the trainer saying they did not need them so soon.

Instead, they worked together at Rosehill on Tuesday morning.

Waller plans to start Nature Strip in the Group Three Concorde Stakes (1000m) on September 7 but has not yet decided where Arcadia Queen and Enticing Star will kick off.

After the Concorde, Nature Strip is likely to run in the Premiere Stakes (1200m) on October 5 to ensure he is primed for the Everest if he gets a call-up.

The four slots left in the race are held by Coolmore, Godolphin, James Harron and the Melbourne Racing Club.

Coolmore and Godolphin are likely to put one of their own horses in while the winner of the Schillaci Stakes at Caulfield on October 12 gains the MRC slot if connections want to run.

reductio ad absurdum

Gee, that might've even been an appropriate inclusion in the actual Everest 2019 thread.  Shocked  Wink

I know you live on Planet Second Chance, however if you believe that. you'll believe anything.

Stewards report on Eastender

Eastender − Slow to begin. Raced fiercely in the early stages. Rider C. Williams reported that the gelding over raced throughout the early stages however, from 1400m settled and commenced to travel well. He added that whilst Eastender improved into the event from the 800m, near the 500m the gelding changed stride, shifted in and made heavy contact with the running rail and as a result became unbalanced and lost ground. He said from this point Eastender did not respond to his riding and when he was concerned there was something a miss with the gelding he desisted from riding it out over the final 250m. A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities. Mr C. Duckworth representing trainer Mr C. Waller stated that the only explanation he could offer for today's performance was that Eastender had not adapted to the Sydney way of racing as he was having his first start in this state.
Stewards advised Mr Duckworth that Eastender would be required to barrier trial to their satisfaction before having its next race start. Mr Duckworth undertook to report back to the Stewards if anyconditionwasapparentwiththegeldinginthedayssubsequent. RiderC.Williamswascautioned against using his whip in a manner that raised his whip arm above shoulder height (AR132(6)(b)).
