Godolphin sprinter Bivouac captured the eye on Monday morning after an impressive trial at Kembla Grange.

The Everest hopeful cruised home first in the 800m trial in a time of 48.20, beating home stablemates Promotions and Glacier, as well as fellow Godolphin runner Roheryn who finished strongly.

Godolphin trainer James Cummings was full of praise for his charge, who is about to embark on his four-year-old campaign.

“Bivouac’s trial this morning was as effortless as it was classy”, Cummings said while speaking to racing.com.

“He looks superb at this stage prior to making his seasonal return next month… we will make a decision on whether he resumes in The Concord or The Shorts closer to the time,” Cummings said.

It appears all roads lead to The Everest for the dual Group 1 winner, who has taken out the Golden Rose, as well as the Newmarket Handicap.

Bivouac is yet to be nominated by Godolphin to represent them, with Trekking and Flit also options.

Bivouac is currently on the third line of betting for The Everest, an $11 chance behind favourite Nature Strip ($3) and Classique Legend ($9).
