Red Mills Steeplechase Winners 2015
Sat, Feb 14th, 2015

The Red Mills Steeplechase is a Grade 2 race run over two miles four furlongs.

The star entry in the 2015 renewal is the two time Cheltenham Festival winner Champagne Fever.  Jockey Ruby Walsh heads to Ascot to ride Ballycasey but wiring is his examiner column said:

The focus at Gowran will be on Champagne Fever and he should win. On any given day he should be able to beat these horses but the fact that Bright New Dawn only ran two weeks ago and Texas Jack a week ago, gives him a big advantage.

He has been working well since he fell in Thurles. We still don't know what his best trip might be but knowing Willie, he'll wait and see what turns up in the Ryanair and the Champion Chase before he commits to either.
