The Everest Tips - Can Waller continue feature dominance? Yes, Yes, Yes

Having claimed all four Group 1 races two weeks ago, champion trainer Chris Waller saddles up three leading chances in Australia’s richest race: the $14 million The Everest (1200m) at Randwick on Saturday.

Western Australian sprinter Arcadia Queen is second pick in the market at $5 as she has her second start for Waller, Nature Strip is a $26 chance as he comes off a Group 1 win in the Moir Stakes, and Yes Yes Yes is on the fourth line of betting at $8.50 following a runner-up effort in the Golden Rose Stakes (1400m). 

In lining up Waller’s top two chances in the market, Arcadia Queen and Yes Yes Yes, the latter represents better value, while he also rated higher when both horses were first-up. 

Yes Yes Yes was runner-up to Bivouac in the Run To The Rose and ran 01:09.07 which is only 3.5 lengths off the track record (1:08.39) set by All Our Mob in 1997. He ran his final 600m three lengths quicker than Arcadia Queen did in the following event over 1300m, while he also ran his final 200m four lengths quicker than her. 



Both horses were first-up from the Waller yard, so, you would expect each has similar upside, and while Arcadia Queen goes up half a kilo on that effort, Yes Yes Yes drops 4.5kg. 

As a two-year-old, he ran 1:08.40 to win the Todman Stakes (1200m) on a Good 4 at Randwick, and that time for a juvenile rates extremely high compared to a mature gelding like Santa Ana Lane who boast the track record when running 1:07.45 on a Good 3 in the Premiere Stakes before tackling The Everest last year. 

The track rating is worth at least two lengths, and Yes Yes Yes drops 2.5kg on that effort and is a bigger, stronger three-year-old now. 

The map is a tricky one and he does drop back from 1400m, but if he can hold a forward position with the light weight with only one corner to contend with, he must be rated a top chance. 

It wouldn’t surprise to see any of the dozen combatants claim the rich prize on Saturday, but on weights, measures and value, Yes Yes Yes rates highly and is my on top selection.
