McEvoy Set for a Berry Good Day at Randwick


Jockey Kerrin McEvoy has a commanding book of rides at Randwick and is hot favourite to win the Nathan Berry Medal.

McEvoy is the $1.75 favourite to be the leading rider, based on a 3-2-1 points basis, for rides at the two days of The Championships at Randwick.  McEvoy has a full book of 10 rides on Saturday, including Redzel ($2.30 favourite) in the Group 1 T.J. Smith Stakes.

The in-form Brenton Avdulla is next in betting on $4.60, followed by Corey Brown ($8.00) and Blake Shinn ($9.00).

Champion trainer Chris Waller has six runners in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile and he is $3.00 to train the winner.  Melbourne jockey Craig Williams is $2.25 to ride a winner on the day and McEvoy is $9.00 to ride two or more group 1 winners.

McEvoy has been having a great run and apart from Redzel he has quality rides throughout the day. He is a good chance of picking up points, probably for second, when he rides prolific bridesmaid Tom Melbourne in the Doncaster.
