|Pedigree:||Balko (FR) - Ravissante (FR)|
|Owner:||Mr & Mrs Sperling | Mr Andrew Phillips|
Charmant is by Balko, a top class Hurdler and Chaser in France in training when we worked for Mr Macaire. Proving a good National Hunt Sire (42% Jumps, 25% Bumpers) including Gitane Du Berlais, Fago, Mitchto.
Dam has produced French 1m 6f NH Flat race winner Banal and is from the family of Jupon Bleu – Hurdle/Chase winner.
Charmant is an extremely consistent, resilient and durable individual who failed to run a bad race last season. He looks better than ever and has really blossomed over the summer. As he is only five it would not be unreasonable to expect further physical improvement and he might look very attractively handicapped. His form at Wetherby and Carlisle looks rock solid.
