15/4/2019 Late call on Chenier’s Champagne bid

The Anthony Freedman-trained Chenier (Medaglia d’Oro), who suffered an odds-on defeat at Sandown Hillside on Wednesday, could still line-up in the Champagne Stakes (Gr 1, 1600m) at Randwick on Saturday, with a decision regarding his participation expected today. Kerrin McEvoy, who was in the saddle when Chenier finished a length and three quarters behind Lady Lupino (Sebring), is on standby to ride Probabeel (Savabeel) at the weekend.

In early betting markets for the Gr.1 Champagne Stakes, Chenier is $6. Check out the latest Champagne stakes betting markets.
