Having just his second ride since turning conditional, Charlie Price enjoyed a day he won’t forget at Chepstow on Saturday when winning on Trixster for the Pant Wilkin Partnership!
Having looked the likely winner when coming down at the last at the course in January, Trixster got off the mark over hurdles at Warwick in October and finished runner-up on his latest outing at Southwell.
Back on heavy ground for the first time this season, he travelled noticeably well throughout the contest and, but just looked a little inexperienced when hitting the front, and required plenty of assistance from Charlie to hold off the persistent challenge of the eventual runner-up.
He is a very bright prospect and I can’t wait to send him chasing next term, but in the meantime we’ll look for another novice event (he escapes a penalty for this win, as it came in a conditional jockeys’ contest) before stepping up to handicap company. Congratulations to Charlie and the Pant Wilkin Partnership!
