Fever Looks For Another Champagne Moment At Festival In Arkle Trophy

Tuesday 11th March 2014
Champagne Fever

Champagne Fever has already tasted success at the last two Cheltenham Festival events and the Willie Mullins-trained grey will bid for a hat-trick of Prestbury Park successes on the opening day of the 'Greatest Show On Turf' this afternoon as he goes for glory in the Arkle Challenge Trophy, which takes place at 2:05pm and has attracted a stellar field oozing quality.

Having stormed to glory in the 2011 Champion Bumper, the seven-year-old then showed terrrific class and determination to fend off My Tent Or Yours in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle and he will now try to storm up the hill in front for third year on the spin in this fascinating two-mile Grade One event that is the second of seven magnificent races.

Not only will the Irish raider have to bounce back from a poor showing last time out, he will have to dispatch of a plethora of proven Graded performers and former Champion Hurdler Rock On Ruby will aim to light up the Gloucestershire venue again, whilst fellow Emerald Isle contender Trifolium will be another major player in what will be a terrific betting heat.

With proven form on the big stage, Champagne Fever is heading the latest Arkle Trophy betting, but he will have to be at the top of his game to reign again on GL50 and the hotshot team of Mullins and Ruby Walsh will be hoping that he can be a catalyst for more success later on in the afternoon as they team up with Hurricane Fly in the Champion Hurdle at 3:20pm.
