Israel Champ (Milan) Wins Listed Bumper At Cheltenham

Son Of Milan Makes All To Land Listed Bumper

Israel Champ (4g Milan - La Dariska, by Take Risks) emerged as an exciting prospect when taking the Listed bumper at Cheltenham on Sunday.

Purchased privately after winning his point-to-point for Mary Doyle, he made a promising start for David Pipe at Worcester last month. Tom Scudamore took the ride on his latest start and rode the bay to make all, his mount staying on strongly to win by a length and three quarters. The favourite Time Flies By (Getaway), a course and distance winner last time out, claimed runners-up honours.

Owned by John White and Anne Underhill, Israel Champ was bred by Mrs Sheila Kelleher.
