You obviously never know what you are up against in the Wood Ditton and I haven’t ridden my filly at home, but she cost 140,000 euros a yearling and Charlie has his horses in great form, with five winners in the last 10 days. Her pedigree suggests 1m is a good starting point for her, though whether being drawn 14 of 14 turns out to be ideal we shall see.
Another one of Charlie’s who has been given an extreme draw in 10 of 10. Devil’s Cowboy sire Helmet clearly is doing really well – he is obviously best known for recent UAE Derby winner Thunder Snow – and this one is a 60,000gns yearling who is out of a 5f winning juvenile who was also Group 3-placed in Ireland at two. As I mentioned earlier, Charlie’s horses are in great nick and in fact the only 2yo he has run this season won well for me at Windsor last week.
I was on board when he won over course and distance last May, one of three times I have ridden the horse. He is a fair bit higher in the weights now but you would expect that as he won subsequently and ran very well in defeat on occasions, too. His form tailed off a bit towards the end of a busy campaign, but at least he was eased 2lb as a result and he ran well first time out last season, too. He is versatile as regards ground but it was quick when he won here in May and he is one of a number in with a fair chance in this sprint handicap.
