CHARLES CHARGES BACK TO ADELAIDE

Charles in Charge ventured on another successful road trip to Adelaide today, winning the UBET Adelaide Cup 14 March Benchmark 90 Handicap over 1200m.

Ridden by Daniel Moor, Charles began slowly from barrier 2 but quickly mustered up and strode to the lead.

Rated well, Charles carved our his first 600m in 35.39 secs, and lead comfortably without any pressure being applied.

He turned for home with a bit over a length advantage, and it was not until the 300m that the challengers started to stoke up behind him, but under more vigorous riding by Daniel Moor, Charles started to lengthen and sprint for home, with his main danger Lonrockstar issuing his challenge out wide.

Charles rallied and held off the challenge over the last 150m to win by 0.3 lengths on the line running home his last 600m in 34.35 secs.

He has now recorded three wins at Morphettville in four attempts, for a total of 7 wins and 8 placings from 25 starts and over $260,000 in prizemoney.
