Berry closed the gap for the Irish Jockeys' Title competition from eleven winners in arrears of Pat Smullen at the beginning of the day, picking up a treble over the fixture.

Trained by John Oxx, What A Charm led the field easily going into the straight, never really looking like anything other than the winner, crossing the line in front by four and a half lengths from runner up Prince Chaparral, while third place Knight Eagle the same distance further behind.

Oxx said of his winning charge, "She's a grand filly. She hasn't had the ground all year as she loves it soft. I had her entered everywhere throughout the year, but there was no sign of rain.

"It takes a good three-year-old to win the November handicap. I thought that the 3lb rise she had from the Cesarewitch might have stopped her."
