Verdict

CHAMPAGNE CHAMP has proved a grand servant for the Rod Millman yard, winning five times on the Flat and he has taken well to hurdles on the evidence of game win in testing conditions at Chepstow last month. There is potentially a fair bit more to come from him and it wouldn't appear beyond him to defy a penalty in this company. Chosen Path wasn't beaten far behind subsequent Albert Bartlett runner-up Ok Corral over this C&D, so rates an obvious danger with Gosheven also respected on his hurdles debut.
