Yes, they may charge: being "busy" in a challenge does not make the Wizard an invalid model for he purposes of making contact with his unit.

The Phoenix guard will only be able to direct attacks against models they are in contact with, and will not be allowed to make attacks against the Wizard. This means they may very well be unable to do much more than contribute static combat resolution bonuses.

I have a question based on a slight modification of the scenerio. If the charging unit didn't have ASF, but a low I, like dwarfs or orcs, and the challange was resolved first, killing the wizard, would the chargers now be in BSB contact with the horsemen and be able to attack?

No, the challenge happens at the same time as the rest of the combat in a chronological sense, and counts as being in play for the whole combat, even if you resolve it first.

thanks T10 thought it was. the only model that would have been contacted was the wizard
