Redzel is favourite to win The Shorts, but Saturday’s rival, Chautauqua, has the edge in betting for The Everest.

Online bookmaker sportsbet has Redzel at $2.50 for the Randwick Group 2, with Chautauqua second favourite at $3.60. English is third pick on $4.20.

However, Chautauqua heads betting on $4.80 for The Everest. Redzel has firmed from $26 into $11 for the October 14sprint and English is a $13 chance.

“The Shorts could supply a good form pointer for The Everest. Redzel is the in-form sprinter and has a fitness edge on Chautauqua. If Redzel wins again on Saturday he’ll firm even more for The Everest,’’ said’s Christian Jantzen.
