Charm Spirit Kicks On At Headquarters

Racing for the same combination of trainer John Gosden and owners Qatar Racing Ltd who have enjoyed a brilliant European season with Roaring Lion, Kick On raced in the leading division before accelerating strongly to the line for a facile 2 ½ length victory to become his sire Charm Spirit’s 17th individual winner for the season.

“Kick On has a great stride and he’ll handle pretty much any ground. A stiff mile suits him”, commented Gosden post-race.

“We’ll look at the pedigree carefully, he obviously stays a mile and he’s by Charm Spirit who was a fabulous miler and I see no reason not to run him again this year”.

Leading jockey Oisin Murphy was equally impressed with his mounts performance.

“Charm Spirit is really making a mark at the moment and it’s nice to have one to really look forward to”, said Murphy.

The Gr.1 Doncaster Racing Post Trophy over 1600m next month looks a possible target for Kick On who has the scope to continue his improvement and develop into an imposing three-year-old.

Charm Spirit’s impressive first crop also includes recent Gr.3 winning filly Yourtimeisnow, successful in the 1200m Dick Poole Stakes at Salisbury.

We only have a few shares left in our exciting Charm Spirit filly (who has just returned to the stables to undertake her 2yo career) so be sure not to miss out on owning part of her. Visit CHARM SPIRIT X ROADTOPLATINUM and contact
