Chautauqua was having a jump out this morning that will decide if he races on and tackles The Everest

Berry flies in for Chautauqua jumpout

Tommy Berry will fly into Melbourne from Hong Kong to ride Chautauqua in an all-important jumpout - as D-Day looms large for the champion grey.

In a move that goes against the Hong Kong Jockey Club's policy to disallow their contracted jockeys to go abroad for anything other than rides on Group 1 race days, the HKJC have allowed Berry a special leave ticket to rejoin forces with the grey who he has famously partnered to five of the horse's six Group 1 victories.

Chautauqua's career was at a crossroads in the autumn period, after he refused to leave the barriers at the trials on multiple occasions.

Darren Weir is keen for a second runner with Nature Strip.

Pat Webster is hoping the ATC might use their slot for Happy Clapper. If HC doesn't get a run he will go straight to Melbourne without racing in Sydney.

American sprinter Bound for Australia

Leading American trainer Wesley Ward has confirmed Australia and The Everest is his immediate plan for Diamond Jubilee Stakes third placegetter Bound For Nowhere.

Ward, who is based at Keeneland in Kentucky, told Racing.com that the lightly raced but well-travelled colt returned home to Lexington after running a big race behind Merchant Navy in the Diamond Jubilee at Royal Ascot and is now in quarantine preparing for a journey to Sydney.

When it comes to gaining a start in The Everest, Ward says he's been in negotiations with slot holders and his fate will depend on the outcome of Saturday's Group 1 Darley July Cup (1200m) at Newmarket.

"The Everest is the plan now, it works right in line with what I'd like to do,” he said.

"We've been in negotiations with slot holders.

Any chance of a quick recap on the stakeholders' stakeholding.?

How did they get it?

How much did it cost?

For how long do  they have it?

How do they fill them etc

That sorta stuff.

Hmmm,

Does this mean Waller thinks that Weir is a better trainerthan himself?

Or does it mean none of Wallers horses are up to it? If so might be a useful guide for some races.

Chatauqua jumped out of the barriers successfully for Tommy Berry this morning.

Might yet be a runner in the Everest.

Warrior fades Flag flies to seal Everest spot

Australian representative Redkirk Warrior failed to fire, but the Group 1 July Cup is likely to have ramifications Down Under with winner US Navy Flag set to campaign here in Spring.

The War Front colt will represent Coolmore, by whom he is raced, in the $13 million The Everest (1200m) at Randwick in October.

Trainer Aidan O’Brien said post-race that The Everest had been firmly in the team’s mind and his 1.75-length July Cup win was all the convincing they needed to go.

“We felt that after today he needed a break because he was having a very tough spring and up to now, so the plan was, if it went well, we would give him a rest and go down and train him for the Everest in Australia,” he told Racing UK.
