Several runners from Australia's richest race,The Everest, remain in contention for the feature sprint race of the Melbourne Cup carnival at Flemington.

The first round of acceptances was taken on Tuesday for the $2 million Darley Sprint Classic, run over the straight 1200m course on November 9.

Only three of the 12 runners from Saturday's Everest at Randwick - Redzel, Arcadia Queen and Classique Legend - were not among the 25 horses paid up for on Tuesday.

Santa Ana Lane and In Her Time, who ran one-two last year in the Sprint Classic and both ran in The Everest, remain from the original list of 34 nominations.

Everest winner Yes Yes Yes is one of seven three-year-olds in contention for the Darley Sprint Classic along with Godolphin's star colts Bivouac, the favourite for Friday night's Manikato Stakes, and Microphone.

The Anthony Cummings-trained filly Libertini is also in the mix.

Among the 12 Group One winners in the first acceptances are Everest runners Sunlight, Nature Strip, Alizee and Trekking, while the Aidan O'Brien-trained Ten Sovereigns, who won the July Cup at Newmarket in England this year, is the sole international entrant.
