Betting had to be suspended from noon on Tuesday to avoid any perceived integrity risk, and Racing NSW stewards will advise wagering operators when they may recommence betting on the $13 million race on Tuesday night.

BetEasy had Trapeze Artist, Vega Magic and defending champion Redzel as $7 equal favourites when betting was suspended.

Controversy has raged ever since it emerged the Opera House was going to be used to help promote The Everest, which is billed as the world's richest turf race and is a massive drawcard for tourism in NSW.
