Charmix extended our excellent recent run with a decisive success under a penalty in the EBF National Hunt Novices' Hurdle qualifier at Newbury on Wednesday.
He delivered a very taking performance by making much of the running before stretching well clear of the runner-up in the closing stages.
On the way to Newbury we were thinking that we would be sending Charmix down the handicap route in the second half of the season but he won so well that we may be forced to examine other options such as the Grade 2 Neptune Investment Management Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham at the end of January.
Charmix has delighted us with his progress this season since his game victory at Wetherby late in October. He is most definitely going the right way.
