Champagne And Cuddles For Classy Filly

By Brad Gray

Bjorn Baker’s big opinion of Champagne Cuddles was vindicated after she comfortably accounted for her rivals in the Club Redfern Plate (1000m) at Randwick.

Champagne Cuddles resumed with a dominant win

“It was relief more than anything. She was first-up with one trial after eight months so she is a very talented filly and put her best foot forward today. I don’t think she handled the ground but she got the job done,” said Baker’s Racing Manager Jack Bruce.

“She goes best on top of the ground but her class got her through today. She is a very professional racehorse and when Lipizzan went wide she just kept her course on the inside.

“Bjorn first just wanted to get through today and now we might look at something in the spring for her. It was a good starting point.”

Jason Collett tracked an inside path with the two-year-old daughter of Not A Single Doubt while Deanne Panya chose to fan wide on Lipizzan. It didn’t make a difference in the end with Champagne Cuddles winning eased down.

“You saw how easy she did it then. It was very soft in the end,” Collett said.

“I don’t think the track is too bad to be honest with you. Not as bad as everyone was predicting.

“She lacks size but she has got will (to win) and is competitive. I know from around the stable and her trials she is always trying to get ahead of other horses. She has that little bit of mongrel which is good as she is going to need it.”
