O’Brien Preparing For U S Navy Flag’s Everest Journey

Preparations for U S Navy Flag to tackle The Everest will be ramped up near the end of the month after Coolmore’s star sprinter completes some R&R following his July Cup win.

Trainer Aidan O’Brien has confirmed plans for the three-time Group 1 winner to enter quarantine early in September and he’s expected to arrive in Sydney around September 22.

“U S Navy Flag came out of the July Cup very well and is still on target for The Everest,’’ O’Brien said.

“We are very happy with him.’’

U S Navy Flag earned his spot as Coolmore’s nomination for the $13 million The Everest (1200m) with his dashing win in the July Cup at Newmarket on July 14.

It’s a testing, undulating, course but the four-year-old led basically throughout under Coolmore’s number one rider Ryan Moore.

Because of a busy campaign, which included three attempts at a mile, O’Brien said U S Navy Flag needed a short time to freshen up before he enters quarantine.

“He had a tough first half of the season so we have given him a little break after the July Cup,’’ he said.

“The plan is for him to probably have a racecourse gallop as a lead up to The Everest and he will run in the race straight out of quarantine.”

That crucial gallop will be at a race meeting in Ireland around the end of August.

U S Navy Flag is The Everest’s first international runner, in 2017 Coolmore’s home bred filly Tulip finished fifth in the inaugural running.

Who rides U S Navy Flag in The Everest at Royal Randwick on October 13 is yet to be confirmed but it would be a coup if the Australian Turf Club can lure both O’Brien and Moore to Sydney for the race.

Whether Coolmore brings other horses to Sydney to run in support races like the Group 3 $500,000 Craven Plate (2000m) and $500,000 St Leger (2600m) is yet to be confirmed.

TAB has U S Navy Flag on the $15 line in its All-in market for The Everest.

Long time favourite Trapeze Artist ($4.50) had his first barrier trial of his Everest campaign at Rosehill on Tuesday and pleased trainer Gerald Ryan running fifth, beaten 0.7 lengths, in a 900m heat.

The four-year-old, who Ryan says has put on some 25kg in his break, didn’t carry blinkers in the trial.

“That’s all I wanted him to do. He’s still got a fair way to go, four weeks Saturday until the race, and it was his first fair dinkum hitout,’’ Ryan said.

Trapeze Artist is due to resume in the Group 2 Theo Marks Stakes (1300m) at Rosehill on September 8 and he’ll have a second trial – probably with his blinkers on.

“I just wanted him to have a nice time then get serious in a fortnight,’’ he said.

“His work has been a bit better this time in, I was getting a bit worried because he was working too well for him then Saturday morning he did what he normally does.’’

Geez I reckon this horse will be hard to beat. Have taken him in some doubles. $15 in the latest markets.

How good is it watching both of them matching motors as they top the rise, even better when KMc hadn't let go yet   :lol:

They had Max Whitby on Sky talking about what he is doing. He would like Kementari but he reckons Godolphin "bargain too hard".

Viddora is still available. And what about the old bloke Ball Of Muscle beating two of the Everest entries today? Thought he beat them fair and square too.

Said he hadn't ruled out a NZ sprinter as well.

The fact that it is $7.50 equal 3rd fave suggests it is still in with a chance although I heard the slotholders told the owners they wanted too much  - which I suppose is exactly what the other party would say   :biggrin:

A bit like Whitby criticizing Godolphin - like they'd care   :lol:

And this is the problem when they use racing to get fit.

Looked bullet proof idling along side Invincible Star topping the rise last start before putting her away easily 2 weeks ago  :whistle:

Seems a silly statement Auth  :chin:

If he needs to race today or between now and The Everest than that is the problem with racing them to fitness.

Despite his run 2 weeks ago being 6 or 7 weeks before the big one his target should not be compromised for missing a run.

Invincible Star the run of the race from an Everest perspective unless Ball Of Muscle runs.

I was on English and wanted to be off as the ears were listening to Dufficy telling the story of how this is her first race without the artificial hoof filler and the eyes watching in horror as the farrier was belting her legs to get the shoe on - one of those "what is wrong with this scene" moments  :shy:

But what about the run of the 4th horse ridden by Robert Thompson and trained by Rodney Northam!!

Pretty good form to date but After All That has run one of the Everest favourites to the barest of margins. All of a sudden from obscurity to the 5th line of betting in the Kozzie.
