A tremendous win from Uncle Charlie again yesterday, he returned to Carlisle to attempt to make it two on the bounce at the Cumbrian track and he did so in gutsy fashion. The early pace suited him well, tucked in behind by Paul Mulrennan, he overcame the wide draw and fought gallantly to push through a wall of horses. As soon as Paul pulled him out and gave him daylight, Charlie picked up and passed several horses in the closing stages, displaying a huge will to win as he really did have every excuse not to, especially given the quicker than desirable conditions. Ann was very close to pulling him out before the race, as he is better with cut in the ground, but having won on quicker ground 11 days prior, he was allowed to line up and take his chance. A difficult decision but one that paid off. 

The below video demonstrates well a horse’s desire to win. Just look at his ears when he hits the front - he knows he is the victor and is enjoying every single minute.
