Charles Wins At Liege

PETER Charles justified the recent acquisition of <It's Magic Max> at Liege, Belgium, with a decisive win in the 1m45 Journal Spectacle Trophy last night (Saturday).

Charles, who took home prize money of 3,225 euros into the bargain, was at the centre of a controversy earlier this year when the English-owned nine yr old bay gelding - regarded as a possible Olympic horse for the British team - passed into the hands of the Irish rider, and, therefore, the Irish show jumping team.

<It's Magic Max> has shown some good form in recent months under the experienced eye of his new rider, but this win at Liege, against a formidable startlist containing some of Europe's best riders and horses, will confirm to selectors that Peter Charles is still very much a force to be reckoned with.
