JANUARY’S rich Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) looms as an obvious target for connections of CHARLIE BOY who turned in a spectacularly good trial at Rosehill last Tuesday morning reports The Sportsman.

Trained by acknowledged two-year-old master Gerald Ryan, Charlie Boy has what you want in a two-year-old.

Pace from the jump, high cruising speed, tractable, good action, sensible, strong to line.

That’s Charlie Boy, a son of French Champion 2YO and Group 1 juvenile winner Myboycharlie.

What also makes Charlie Boy more appealing is that he has improved markedly off his debut fourth behind two subsequent Sydney Saturday metro winners, Never Can Tell and Criterion, three weeks prior in another 900m heat at home.

Oh and the time?

He broke 54s which none of the other nine 900m heat winners managed to do.
