Brave out, Osborne Bulls in for The Everest

THE ATC has selected emergency Osborne Bulls to run in Saturday's The TAB Everest at Royal Randwick after stablemate Home Of The Brave was withdrawn on Tuesday by Racing NSW stewards on veterinary advice.

Racing NSW vets confirmed Home Of The Brave recorded an elevated temperature after trackwork on Tuesday morning.

Osborne Bulls is also owned and raced by Godolphin.

"Osborne Bulls performed very well in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes last start and was clear $3.50 TAB favourite for this Saturday's Sydney Stakes,'' ATC director Phil Morley said.

"ATC is pleased to be able to continue its partnership with Godolphin and its trainer James Cummings in the TAB Everest.''

Top Sydney jockey Tommy Berry will ride Osborne Bulls.

Godolphin Managing Director in Australia, Vin Cox, said: "As the stewards have advised Home Of The Brave has an elevated temperature. It isn't a serious issue and we advised all relevant parties at the earliest opportunity.

"Osborne Bulls was the favourite for the Sydney Stakes, the race from which Everest replacements are selected, and it keeps our chances in this great race alive.

"James Cummings has been very pleased with the horse, he loves Randwick and while we're disappointed for Home Of The Brave, we're delighted Osborne Bulls has been selected and the team are very confident he will run a big race."
