CChaserChampagne Chaser made the long journey to Hexham worthwhile by making a winning reappearance in the 2m4f handicap hurdle under Richard Johnson.

Prominent throughout, he always looked to be travelling kindly and, taking up the running before the second-last. he kept on really gamely for pressure to record the third win of his career.

He may well now go novice handicap chasing, as he has the scope to jump fences and hails from a family that have been very successful in that sphere.  Congratulations to his owners the O’Sullivan family!
