Previous Cheltenham form is golden and CHAMPAGNE WEST has that in spades with his form figures here reading 41122, so he is the most obvious winner of this Grade 3. Philip Hobbs’ charge made a big splash when winning a couple of novice chases last term but was denied a run at the festival after injuring a hock when falling at Sandown in January. Normally a safe jumper, he came back looking stronger than ever when chasing home stablemate Village Vic in the Gold Cup run here in December. The winner has since followed up so a 4lb rise is fair and, given his Cheltenham record, he wouldn’t look out of place in the Ryanair, for which he gets a 20/1 quote from bet365. But this is a decent prize in its own right and he looks a rock-solid 9/4 favourite to win it with the same firm.
