Charming Kid made the trip over to Dundalk worth while with an impressive victory under Barry McHugh. He was sent off favourite and justified the support. He was always prominent and looked the winner a long way from home. He was always travelling strongly and pulled clear of his rivals approaching the final furlong. He stayed on strongly to win by two-and-three-quarter-lengths for owners The Cool Silk Partnership.

It was the first time Barry had ridden at the track and his dad was there to see him win. Marcus and Joel had taken Charming Kid over the water.
