At the start of the new season in May 2022 Charlie took the step up from Pupil Assistant to Assistant Trainer taking over from the departing Harry Derham.
This will be Charlies fourth season now with Paul having spent three seasons as pupil assistant. Over the last season in the lead up to taking over Charlie has been being working hard to understand the different skills needed to make sure he can fill the very big shoes left behind.
On a day-to-day basis Charlie will be helping with the running of both yards working alongside both Head Lads Clifford and Dave. He will also spend plenty of time going racing with Paul or representing him and hopefully saddling lots of winners. He is particularly looking forward to spending more time on the schooling grounds, organising racecourse gallops and helping the younger more inexperienced members staff improve and progress. He is incredibly excited to take on this massive opportunity and is ready to give it his all.
