Bivouac shines in trial ahead of The Everest

Mike Hedge

A sparkling trial by Bivouac has left the Godolphin camp “totally delighted” that the horse is in the right condition to peak for Saturday week’s $15 million The Everest.

With race jockey Glen Boss aboard, Bivouac led home his stablemate Promotions in Friday’s 800m barrier trial at Warwick Farm going to the line strongly and unpressured.

“He showed us just what we wanted to see, the team was totally delighted,” said trainer James Cummings.

“Glen had him nicely-controlled early which allowed the horse to use himself well.

“He’s pulled up well and his recovery demonstrated he’s ready for the lofty challenges an Everest can throw up.”

Bivouac will run in the Godolphin slot in the Everest, the world’s richest turf race, run over 1,200m at Randwick on Saturday, 17 October.

His stablemate Trekking, who finished third in the race in 2019, will join Bivouac in the 12-horse field having been selected for the slot owned by Max Whitby and Neil Werrett.
