                Pablo Du Charmil

Pablo Du Charmil is a 2001 chestnut gelding by Lyphard’s Wish and his dam was called Pacifie Du Charmil.  He was a very good horse, probably just under top class, trained firstly at Pond House by MCP and then David when he took over the reins.  He ran in the purple colours of Joe Moran and has the Grade 1 Haldon Gold Cup is on his role of honour.

 

He began life in France in the care of French trainer Guy Cherel.  He was two from two over hurdles at Auteuil in October 2005 before being bought privately after this.  He came over to England and finished second on his stable debut in a novice hurdle at Sandown.  He filled the same position on his next start in a similar event at Wincanton before he lined up in the Supreme novices hurdle at the 2006 Cheltenham Festival but unfortunately he got no further than the third flight of hurdles when blundering and unseating jockey Rodi Greene.  He went over to Punchestown after this and ran okay but finished midfield in a big field handicap hurdle.

After a summer at grass he returned to begin a novice chase campaign and recorded three wins in a row.  He won on debut at Exeter in November 2006 and followed up later that month by beating Penzance by six lengths at Fontwell.  He recorded his hat-trick of wins by winning easily at Warwick in December.  After a little break, the Grand Annual handicap chase was the race of choice at the 2007 Cheltenham Festival.  Sent off at only 6/1 he unfortunately his disappointed on this occasion.

It was then time for another summer holiday and he made his comeback in the Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter, Grade 1.  He made all under Tom Scudamore and beat Royal Shakespeare and Fair Along.  He had all his rivals in trouble by the end of the back straight and although he tired from two out he had enough in reserve to secure a great win.  He found things a bit tougher for the rest of that season in some top races but he did get placed on a couple of occasions and finished twelfth in the Coral Cup at the Cheltenham Festival in March.

Following another break he returned to action with a bang to win at Cheltenham in November 2007 on his comeback run.  Pablo appeared not to have liked Cheltenham on his previous runs there but had won first time out on each of his three previous seasons so it was brilliant he kept up this record!  He jumped really well and beat Tramatano by ten lengths. He followed up this win with a good run next time out in the Desert Orchid chase at Kempton over Christmas where he was a close third.  Consistency was not his strong suit however as he disappointed at Cheltenham after this and only ran okay in the William Hill handicap chase at the festival to finish midfield.  He finished that season on a better note when finishing fourth on his first try over three miles in a valuable race at Uttoxeter in May, where he was not beaten far.

He had a holiday but when he returned he really found himself in the grip of the handicapper as he got older.  He could not keep up his re-appearance winning strike rate this time around as he unfortunately fell early on at Cheltenham on his comeback in January 2010. He also fell early on in the Grand National that year.  He continued to run okay without troubling the judge that summer before unfortunately picking up an injury after running at Market Rasen in September. 

After some time off he was found a home with someone we knew for a career in the point to point field but it was soon clear he did not enjoy his racing anymore and was retired. 

Pablo Du Charmil was the winner of seven races from 28 career starts and he was placed a further five times as well.  Rated 152 at best he won over £150,000 in prize money.
