Classique Legend had not raced since finishing fith behind Nature Strip in last year’s e Everest and Bridge said he was happy the gelding came through the trial well under Kerrin McEvoy. “McEvoy said he blew up about 80 metres out, so he’s not as t at this stage as I’ve had him in the past because of the time out,” Bridge said.
“I’m going to get him ready for e Shorts. When he won the Shorts [in 2020], I had him spot-on. He might not be spot-on this time, but we’ll do the best we can. He is just a fraction behind in fitness, but he will certainly be fit enough for e Everest.”
