KING Charles banged in a £28,000 winner on Monday – as Perfect Alibi routed rivals to give the monarch a second big success.
Victory never looked in doubt for the three-year-old filly under top jockey Tom Marquand at Yarmouth.
Sent off the 11-4 fav, Perfect Alibi scooted clear 12-1 runner-up Pearl Beach and 10-1 Goolwa to land the decent prize.
Perfect Alibi’s win in the 1m6f British Stallion Studs EBF Beckford Stakes was worth £28,355 in all.
Add in Just Fine’s win at Leicester last week – King Charles’ first in the royal silks – and the monarch has won just under £50,000 since September 29.
Marquand said: “That was a really good performance and from the bottom of the straight it was evident she’d be dominant.
“She’s a darling of a filly and really coming to the fore now.
“She’s put in some pretty decent performances and hopefully it’s a sign there’s more to come.”
The victory came amid Sun Racing reporting Charles is set to axe one of the late Queen’s closest and most trusted friends from his role.
