Queensland trainer Bryan Guy still has interstate ambitions for the erratic Charlie Cat despite his defeat at Doomben.

Charlie Cat jumped in the air and missed the start about six lengths before finishing fourth in Saturday’s Class 6 Plate (1200m).

The gelding was having his first Australian start since being sent home from Hong Kong after just one race when unplaced at Sha Tin.

Guy has put hours of work into Charlie Cat who has a reputation for disliking the barrier stalls.

“We have worked with him at the barriers and he walked in kindly. He just has to get out the other side now,” Guy said.

“It is so frustrating because he has so much ability. But we will have to continue to work on him.”

“One thing it was a very good run and he should be up to winning here.”

Guy has the option of aiming Charlie Cat at the Magic Millions carnival in January or going to Melbourne late in the spring carnival.

“We will worry about that later after we work on his barrier manners,” he said.

Before he went to Hong Kong, Charlie Cat put together three wins from five starts for trainer Les Kelly.

Stewards elected not to send Charlie Cat back to the barrier trials but put a warning on him.

“His previous trouble was not going into the barriers. He did that, so we will give him one more chance,” chief steward Allan Reardon said.

Fellow trainer Rob Heathcote wasn’t overly concerned by the defeat of Pinch River at odds-on in Saturday’s Benchmark 95.

“Jim (jockey Byrne) said he never stretched out at any stage on the track so his third wasn’t too bad,” Heathcote said.
