High hopes for Headman in Irish Champion

Roger Charlton believes the track at Leopardstown will Perform into the Advantages of Headman week If he Gets his Group One Introduction in the Qipco Irish Champion Stakes on Saturday.

By recording a fourth success Kingman’s boy will rush to enhance his progressive profile. Landing a Group Two at Saint-Cloud at June on his first start in Pattern-race company, the Khalid Abdullah-owned three-year-old followed at exactly the exact same level when demonstrating a good turn of foot on his most recent outing. Charlton – that won the Irish Champion two decades back with Decorated Knight – stated:”It’s a huge jump up in class, but I’ve been pleased with the horse. “It is truly the only race to operate in because there are no more three-year-old-only races and won two Group Twos that there is not any point giving away weight in a different Group Two. “I do not think both of the French races appropriate him. I believe I think there is a surface what he desires and also the manner of the race and the course will fit him better. “I assume there are also a better rate and they won’t go just like they did in France out time. He is a long-striding horse and you don’t need to be violating that stride.” Had the race run to match Headman on his final start, the Beckhampton handler believes his winning margin of a head could have been considerably greater. He further added:”It had been quite tactical in France out time and all these things occur in French races. “Nothing in that race had actually made the running before and we understood there was a shortage of pace and that he just missed the rest a little bit, that did not help him. “I think to get an inexperienced horse he did well to come from where he was, since the race quickened facing him. If they had gone fast from the early race on the previous day he’d have won by several lengths.” Whatever the result in Ireland, the Classic-winning handler is convinced Headman will be observed to effect that is better next year. He said:”I think that horse is just one for the future and I’m sure he’ll keep improving. I believe he will be better . “I would not wish to go farther than a mile and a quarter right now, as he’s got plenty of pace and is bred for a mile-and-a-quarter horse.” Read more:
