Enigmatic galloper Dowdston Charlie heads to Hawkesbury on Sunday where he will lead the field out in the third race on the card Hawkesbury Living Benchmark 68 over the mile. The Myboycharlie gelding appreciated the heavy conditions when finishing third over 1500m at Rosehill a fortnight ago and has continued to please Kim in the lead up to Sunday’s event. “Dowdstown Charlie is very well. I thought his last run was good on his preferred surface and whilst he won’t get conditions to suit he hasn’t been to far away in the metropolitan tracks which should hold him in good stead” added Kim. Inform claiming apprentice Sam Clenton has been booked to ride Dowdstown Charlie after he was allowed 61kgs in the small field of 5 runners.
