Three winners in less than 24 hours for Charm Spirit

Charm Spirit - who stands at Tweenhills for £17,500 (Oct 1st SLF) this breeding season - sired three winners in less than a day recently when Spirit Warning, Charming Kid and Forseti all won, two of them representing trainer Andrew Balding.

First up was Spirit Warning who built on his handicap debut second (behind a son of Havana Gold) over a mile at Kempton when winning over the same course and distance on Friday evening. He travelled fluently held up and will be winning again. Spirit Warning was bred by Kingsclere Stud out of their Averti mare Averami (also dam of Pearl Bloodstock's Gr. 1 winner Side Glance) and carries their famous "Mill Reef" colours.

Less than two hours later, the Richard Fahey-trained Charming Kid got right back to his best when running away with a conditions sprint at Dundalk. The Biddestone Stud-bred son of Coronado's Quest mare Child Bride was a cut above his rivals and should be back in Stakes company soon.

Completing the quickfire hat-trick was Forseti who recorded his second career success in a mile handicap at Lingfield on Saturday. He was soon anchored at the back under Josh Bryan but showed a good turn of foot and a great attitude to get up on the line. He tried Gr. 2 company last year so hopefully can win another handicap from a new mark in the 80s. He was bred by Deerfield Farm out of Raven's Pass mare Ravensburg.

If this is an early clue that Charm Spirit's first three-year-old are going to improve as much as he did then we are in for an exciting season.

In other Tweenhills news, Lady Rebecca's grandson Before Midnight (out of Lady Samantha) won his third race on Friday, namely a novice hurdle at Taunton, and Gorgeous Noora (owned by David Redvers and David Howden) bolted up at Lingfield on the same afternoon and now goes for Stakes races.
