Charlie Boy Out to Improve in 2013 Champagne Stakes

Gerald Ryan is out in force across multiple states this weekend targeting Group 1 glory including in Sydney with his improving two-year-old Charlie Boy in the Champagne Stakes 2013 at Royal Randwick.

In Adelaide Ryan will saddle-up his smart filly Snitzerland fresh off her Group 1 The Galaxy second in the $400,000 Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville, and while she looks his best Group 1 chance this weekend he is also looking forward to the appearance of Myboycharlie colt Charlie Boy back home.

A winner on debut at Rosehill last November Charlie Boy hasn’t won a race since with Ryan hoping that will change in Saturday’s $400,000 Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) on Sydney Cup Day.

They were competitive in their two opening autumn starts finishing third to Sweet Idea in the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes in the mud and then fourth to Criterion in the Group 2 Todman Stakes before their credible eighth to Overreach in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) on April 6 where Ryan expected more based on the slow racing surface.

Last start Charlie Boy contested another juveniles’ Group 1, the ATC Sires Produce Stakes (1400m) where they finished just over five lengths away sixth to Guelph, Ryan hoping they can improve on that this weekend when they step up to the mile for the first time.

“He’s a good worker and a great eater but I can’t understand why he isn’t doing it in his races,” Ryan said.

“Maybe he didn’t back up from the Slipper so we will give him another chance in the Champagne.”

Nominations for all the majors at Randwick Racecourse this Saturday, which is the last of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival Group 1 meetings, will be released shortly and published right here at Races.com.au so stay tuned.
