James Harron Bloodstock have chosen Doomben 10,000 winner Redzel to be their representative in the $10million The Everest next month.

The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained sprinter won the Group 3 Concorde Stakes last time out, his first run back since his Group 1 triumph at Doomben in May, and Harron says they could not be happier with their choice.

"On behalf of my owners in the JHB Everest slot we are hugely excited to team up with Triple Crown, Team Snowden and Redzel," Harron said.

"He's a fantastically brilliant and consistent sprinter who has won or been second in 11 of his last 13 starts and was scintillating under 60kg in the Concorde last time.

"With Peter and Paul Snowden training, along with Kerrin (McEvoy) riding, there's a superb team behind Redzel for The Everest."

Chris Ward, from owners Triple Crown Syndications, said Redzel had stepped up to a different level this year.

"Redzel has had a meteoric rise over the last 12 months," he added. "Trainers Peter and Paul Snowden told us early on he had stepped up to another level again this preparation and it's an honour to have one of the very best sprinters in the land."

Redzel is back in action in Saturday's Group 2 The Shorts (1100m) at Randwick on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Redzel is 2.00 to win The Everest, with Vega Magic available at 2.00 and Russian Revolution 2.00.
