Real Charm Leads 2015 La Trice Classic Field

Real Charm Leads 2015 La Trice Classic Field

Lark Hill horseman Adam Durrant has a host of livewire chances lining up on Perth Cup Day at Ascot Racecourse this Thursday including his in-form mare Real Charm in the La Trice Classic 2015 field.

Durrant’s headliner at the New Year’s Day meeting is last start W.A. St. Leger winner Real Love in the Perth Cup, but he’s also in with a  strong chance in the fillies-and-mares’ $150,000 Group 3 La Trice Classic (1800m).

In that set weights plus penalties clash his stable is well-represented in barrier five of eight by Perth Cup non-acceptor Real Charm who is after her fourth straight win for the season.

Ace Perth jockey William Pike, who also rides the short-priced Perth Cup favourite Real Love, has the ride in this as well after guiding four-year-old Reset mare Real Charm to victory at her latest two starts.

Those wins were in the Listed Jungle Dawn Classic (1400m) on December 6 and then a fortnight later with a big two and a half-length effort over Antique Belle, who is now in the spelling paddock, in the Listed Starstruck Classic (1600m).

She’s had one previous run over the 1800m she sees again on Thursday when second in the Listed Ascot 1000 Guineas for her previous trainer Grant Williams back in March and was Group 3 placed when third behind the top two chances for the Perth Cup, Balmont Girl and Real Love in the W.A. Oaks over 2400m during the autumn as well.

Durrant also saddles up another in-form La Trice Classic hope from barrier seven with Peter Hall riding last start winner Raindance Maggie, the five-year-old having saluted over 1820m at Ascot on Christmas Eve.

With identical lead-up form to her, a win followed by a fourth followed by another win, is then the Shane Quilty-trained Dabang.

Apprentice Lucy Warwick has the ride on the He’s A Decoy four-year-old after being aboard for those three lead-up runs including an 1800m victory by two and a quarter lengths last Saturday.

Other notable La Trice Classic hopefuls for this summer include consistent Vampi Lass coming off a third to Real Charm in the Starstruck Classic, the Grant Williams-trained Dark Delight, and the Colin Webster-trained Pop Culture who won the 2012 WA Oaks and was last seen in the winner’s stall on November 8 in the Listed Ascot Gold Cup.

Pop Culture was pulled from Perth Cup contention earlier in December by Webster, a two time placed trainer in the 2400m classic with Rogan Josh (2nd in 1999) and Beau Heed (3rd in 1997).

The now six-year-old daughter of Blackfriars ran fourth behind Talent Show in the 2013 Perth Cup but was out of her depth 12 months later when beating home just one other runner to finish 15th to Black Tycoon this year.

Webster then opted for this easier assignment in 2015 with both the race conditions and distance being a better suit.

“The race is under set weights and penalties and it is at her favourite distance,” Webster told The West Australian on December 22.
