Charmant was badly handicapped last season after an impressive Wetherby win the previous season and things were tough for him particularly as we did not ever get his preferred heavy ground. There was also an abandoned meeting when fancied at Ayr but that’s just how it goes sometimes. His best run was when fourth at Doncaster on ground which was a bit too lively in a Class 2. Now that he is down to 128 we are looking far more competitive given his favoured conditions.
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.
