Roger Charlton trained Withhold's 'demolition job' to win the Cesarewitch

For the four-year old Withhold to win a classic like Newmarket's Betfred Cesarewitch Handicap (October 14) is, says his trainer Roger Charlton, "Something very special."

The relatively lightly raced gelding - bought by Brighton Football Club owner Tony Bloom last October - stormed to the front of the 34-runner field under Silvestre de Sousa to win by three-and-three-quarter lengths.  With a first prize of £155,625 he has very nearly won back his purchase price.

Roger Charlton, who trains at Beckhanmpton, said afterwards: "We've been planning this for sometime...Silvestre gave him a very enterprising ride - it was a demolition job really. He's a very nice horse, he's a very, very starightforward horse."

The Racing Post analysis of the race said: "His draw in 24 was of some concern, but Silvestre de Sousa soon had him near the head of affairs and got him into a decent rhythm. Moving nearer the stands side with four furlongs to run, he kept pouring it on and powered up the rising finish."

And Racing Post columnist Alastair Down wrote of Withhold's victory: "Charlton will have enjoyed fettling this coup on that wonderful and historic Beckhampton turf."
