Charlie is the darling for Perth punters at June Saturday
Charlie Uberalles took the feature race at Perth on Saturday for Conor O’Farrell and Cumbrian trainer Dianne Sayer.
Sent off at 4/1, the six-year-old made all and stayed on gamely to defeat 9/4 favourite Hereditary Rule by a length and a half, in the racingtv.com/freetrial Kilmany Handicap Chase (For The Kilmany Cup).
Lucinda Russell was on the mark in the Visit raceday-ready.com Handicap Chase with Lucky Flight, another all-the-way winner, this time by eight lengths.
Winning jockey Stephen Mulqueen said: “He’s some horse and we get on great together. That’s five races we’ve won, and you just let him get on with it.”
Gordon Elliott made it 196 winners at the track after Copperwell landed the opening Perth Supports Racing With Pride Maiden Hurdle under Sean Bowen.
The partnership led in the closing stages before seeing off Maifalki by two and a quarter lengths.
Next up at Perth is Summer Raceday on Thursday 30 June
