Dual Grade One bumper winner Champagne Fever will now try to win at the top level over jumps following his maiden hurdle success last weekend.

The Cheltenham and Punchestown Festival hero made a triumphant debut over obstacles at Cork on Sunday.

His trainer Willie Mullins will now choose between the Bar One Racing Royal Bond Novice Hurdle at Fairyhouse on December 2 and the Navan Novice Hurdle two weeks later for his talented grey.

"He's come out of his race well. He's entered in the Royal Bond and the hurdle at Navan," Mullins told At The Races.

"He'll go for one of the two, but the two and a half (mile) race at Navan would be the more obvious one.

"We'll see how he comes out of his last race and what is going to run before making a final decision."
