Thoughts on Pleasant Charm
Pleasant Charm lines up at 5.15pm at Wolverhampton today (Saturday 26th Feb) for the mile maiden. Liam Keniry will be in the plate as the filly steps up in distance. Pleasant Charm was disappointing on her first start. The filly definitely wasn’t seen to be best effect when dropped to six furlongs on her second start. That race became a very tactical affair with a mad dash for the line from two out. We’d be hoping for better today. We have trained a few of her siblings to win races, including Seneca Chief who has won 6 of 25 starts. She shows ability at home so fingers crossed she can demonstrate it on course.
There is not a huge amount of form to go on this race. The Ganges was second on debut for previous connections and that sets the benchmark here. She had a subsequent winner in behind that evening. Previous connections willingness to sell for a relatively modest amount does suggest they did not expect a lot of improvement. Saorla showed promise on debut in field of some highly touted rivals, she may give her elders the most to think about here. Kiss Kiss showed a bit of potential and will probably improve. On that basis the four year old filly is another who could be involved.
Pleasant Charm will run in the colours of owner and breeders Mr & Mrs G Middlebrook. This evening she will be led up by Charlotte Wright who cares for her at home and overseen by travelling manager Shaun Johnson.
