Ryan Pleased with Charlie Boy Ahead of Bobbie Lewis

A notable performer over just three competitive starts through the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival, trainer Gerald Ryan has revealed he is pleased with the condition of Charlie Boy ahead of his racing return in this afternoon’s Group 3 Bobbie Lewis Quality (1200m) at Flemington.

Securing two wins and one minor places from just nine competitive starts so far, Charlie Boy has not been seen at the races since finishing a credible seventh in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 12th; suffering an unfortunate tendon injury in the lead-up to his autumn racing return this year.

Allocated the relatively wide and awkward barrier 13, Ryan said the Myboycharlie entire he produced excellent work in the lead-up to the Bobbie Lewis Quality, and is sure to benefit from the first-up run this year.

“If he goes alright Saturday he’ll go to the Gilgai Stakes (1200m) on October 4 and then he’ll go to the Yellowglen Stakes (1200m) on Derby Day,” Ryan told Racing Victoria.

“We could have had him back ready to race in the winter but we just decided to get him ready for the Spring.

“He’s as fit as you can be without having a race. Nothing beats match practice and he’s a four-year-old bull (entire) that hasn’t raced for 11 months.

“He’ll run well and whatever he does tomorrow (Saturday) he’ll improve off it.”

Winning his debut event in the late spring of 2012, Charlie Boy returned to the track in 2013 in excellent condition; finishing third in the Group 2 Silver Slipper (1100m) first-up and fourth in the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) before claiming mid-pack finished in all three events in the two-year-old Triple Crown.

Winning the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) first-up in spring, the stallion out of Maritime finished fourth in the Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) in what was his only other competitive appearance prior to the Caulfield Guineas.

Ladbrokes.com.au is currently offering the best odds on this afternoon’s Bobbie Lewis Quality, for which Charlie Boy is available at a generous quote of $7.50 for success, or $2.90 to run a place.
