Unbeaten Charlee Bear makes it four from four

SMART two-year-old Charlee Bear is likely to take on city class horses at her next start after winning her fourth race in succession and maintaining her unbeaten record.   Local trainer Greg Kilner has an 1100m 2YO event at Doomben in a fortnight pencilled in.   "We may as well throw her in the deep end now and see what happens then she can go for a spell," Kilner said.    "She's still learning all the time, getting better and I think there is still improvement in her.. All her races have been on the doorstep, she hasn't had to travel and hasn't been overtaxed."

    Starting a prohibitive $1.20 favourite, Charlee Bear, a $4000 yearling that has now won over $50,000, was never in danger, leading throughout in the Twin Wing (NZ) 2YO Country Plate (1100m).
