Charmant had a cracking season winning three chases. However, as a result his handicap has gone up from 117 to 139 and so this coming season will be more difficult. His great strength is his jumping which is accurate and economical and this made it all the more disappointing when he fell in his last race where he was running over the increased distance of two and half miles. He likes a flat galloping track on soft ground and if he does stay this trip, we look to have an exciting time ahead.
By Balko, a top class Hurdler and Chaser in France in training when we worked for Guillaume Macaire. Proving a good NH sire (17% Jumps and Bumpers) including Gitane du Berlais, Fago and Mitchto. Dam has produced French 1m 6f NH Flat race winner Banal and is from the family of Jupon Bleu – Hurdle/Chase winner.
For the coming season we are delighted that Charmant will be sponsored by Farm and Stable using the product Kurasyn which they sell.
