Charmix keeps up the momentum
Charmix took our score for the New Year to six with a narrow victory in the novice chase at Hereford on Wednesday.
It is amazing the difference a week makes as that is as many winners as we managed in the whole of December.
The pair were in the air together at the final fence but Charmix found enough on the flat in a slow motion finish to seal his first success over fences at the third attempt.
Although he found it hard work jumping out of the tacky ground he was given an excellent ride by Noel Fehily on his return from a bout of flu.
We don't have any grand plans for Charmix and hope he might be given a more realistic mark over fences than his inflated rating of 145 over hurdles which made life difficult for him.
