Godolphin sprinter Bivouac will head to the Group 2 The Shorts this weekend in a bid to claim a spot in The Everest.

Bivouac will be resuming but has found plenty of friends in the market early on.

The move from punters could be down to Bivouac’s impressive trial last week where he won with an arrogance and pure ease.

The Godolphin sprinter was installed joint favourite at $4.20 with Classique Legend on Monday, but quickly firmed into $3.80.

Godolphin have long-held the view that Bivouac would be take their Everest slot in 2020 and a win on Saturday should see him locked in as a starter.

Bivouac is currently $13 in Everest betting.
