Champagne Classic – Irish Daily Mirror Novice Hurdle

Grade 1 winner! Champagne Classic comes out on top in the battle of the Cheltenham Festival winners at the Punchestown Festival by running out a brave winner of the Grade 1 Irish Daily Mirror Novice Hurdle for trainer Gordon Elliott, jockey Bryan Cooper and owners Gigginstown House Stud.

Winner of the Martin Pipe at Cheltenham in March, Michael O’Leary called this horse the worst his Gigginstown organisation own – he hasn’t turned out too bad!
