2016 filly by Martaline (GB) ex Tidara Angel (Ire) (Oratorio (Ire))
Chabichou Dupoitou is an exceptionally well-bred filly, being out of the Grade 1 winning Tidara Angel and by the top-class stallion Martaline, who is a consistent sire of quality horses including Grade 1 winners Dynaste, Terrefort and We Have A Dream. Chabichou Dupoitou has always been well liked by Philip Hobbs at home, and she has showed promise in novice hurdles this spring. She is a big, scopey mare who will improve for another summer and a step up in trip this autumn.
