Gerald Ryan has a genuine Caulfield Guineas chance after Charlie Boywon the Group 2 Danehill Stakes at Flemington.

The three-year-old colt fulfilled his unbridled promise with a three-quarter-of-a-length win over3E

Charlie Boy has improved remarkably, both physically and mentally, since returning as a 3YO and his Danehill victory was testament to that, displaying greater maturity and race sense. It looks as though he will really come into his own over a mile and he certainly has the genes to back him up over this distance.

Triple Crown Syndications is primed for a big Spring with the likes of Hot Snitzel, Dothraki and Flying Snitzel all hot on the heels of Charlie Boy and set to commence their Spring campaigns in the coming weeks.

Flying Snitzel is the next to sport the red silks in black type company when she resumes in the Group 3 Sheraco Stakes at Rosehill this Saturday!
