Champ - named after multiple-time Champion Jockey Sir AP McCoy, continued his climb up the ladder with a smart win in the Ladbrokes Handicap Hurdle.
Opening mark looked no gift, and whilst being totally unexposed, had the strong look of a potential improvement. That it was, and as he began to pull his way into contention, Aidan Coleman kept the horse under control. When asked for maximum pressure, he ran on well to win comfortably.
Definitely one for the notebook, and be interesting to see where he goes next. Yet another future star for Nicky Henderson.
