Chasing Charlie in the running

Canberra juvenile Chasing Charlie is being prepared for next weekend’s $250,000 Inglis Nursery at Warwick Farm after a brilliant home-track debut last month.

And trainers Barbara Joseph and Paul Jones have already circled next year’s Black Opal Stakes as the major target for their supremely talented son of Myboycharlie.

Chasing Charlie was untroubled in his first race start, despite doing plenty wrong against a modest field of fellow juveniles.

FIRST-UP WIN NOT BEYOND NISBET'S EXPECTATIONs

By Simon Dinopoulos

 

 A fantastic record fresh leaves Canberra based trainer John Nisbet confident his consistent galloper Beyond Expectation can return to the winners stall when he lines up at Canberra this Friday.

Not seen at the racetrack since June this year after failing in the heavy conditions at the Sapphire Coast, Nisbet will be hoping Beyond Expectation can continue his impressive record fresh having claimed three wins and one minor placing from just five attempts.

Oyster Bell In Line For Her First Home Track Win

By Simon Dinopoulos

Progressive mare Oyster Bell looks well placed to notch up her first win at her home track on Sunday after flashing home from the back when resuming last start behind the talented Bella Kuria.

Having placed at seven of her eleven career starts, Jones said she was always a galloper who showed a lot of promise and was just unfortunate to be plagued with injuries.

"She has always shown us a lot of ability, however she has been consistently held back with arthritis in her joints," Jones said.

Asclepius Well Placed To Collect Overdue Win

Progressive galloper Asclepius appears well placed to notch up an overdue win for this preparation when he drops back sharply in grade at Thoroughbred Park tomorrow.

Lining up against only a small field of six, Canberra based trainer Len Hodgson is confident the decision to keep Asclepius over the staying trip of 2000m will prove successful after he has proven very game in defeat in tougher company over the mile.
