Godolphin sprinter Bivouac has put his name forward for a slot in The Everest once again, making light work of some quality opposition in a Tuesday trial win.
The four-year-old took care of a field including Probabeel, Libertini, Star Of The Seas, and Brandenburg at Randwick, clocking 1:03.63 over the 1050m trip, including a tidy 33.59 last 600m.

Bivouac is set to return to the track next week, in the 2020 The Shorts (1100m) at Randwick, kicking off his spring campaign, with a possible tilt at The Everest.
Godolphin stable representative Darren Beadman told Sky Thoroughbred Central that jockey Hugh Bowman was impressed with Tuesday’s showing.
“He doesn’t use it too often but his first words were superb trial.
“It was all positive. They went quite steady in the trial and he didn’t want to disappoint him on the corner, and kept him in his rhythm.”
“I think he is a much stronger horse than last preparation,” he said.
“You could pretty much say he was like a teenager last preparation.
“He has turned into a young man with the time off over winter and he has had that one trial previously at Hawkesbury. He had a nice blow that day.
“His recovery is a lot better today and we are looking forward to a good campaign.”
Bivouac is a $15 chance in The Everest, with Godolphin stable mate Trekking a $26 chance.
