English Hat Trick For Alfie’s Son

Alfred Nobel’s English 4Y0 Chetan continued his great form by winning the Totetrifecta Handicap (six furlongs) at Chelmsford yesterday. (Tuesday, August 23)

Chetan, the 7/2 second favourite, led for a convincing 2 1/2-length success from Fujin (11/1, by Oasis Dream) with a neck to Champagne Bob (9/2, by Big Bad Bob). Luca Cumani’s 9/4 favourite, Unnoticed, was fourth.

Chetan, ridden by Adam, Beschizza for Essex trainer Charlie Wallis, 30, a former jockey, had won his previous two starts when also successful over six furlongs at Yarmouth and Lingfield.

Alfred Nobel, who has quickly developed into WA’s most promising young sire, stands for $4,500, plus GST, at Lynward Park Stud, Bullsbrook.
