Only six runners have accepted for the 2022 Champagne Stakes, which is headlined by Golden Slipper and Inglis Sires' winner Fireburn (barrier two).

The daughter of Rebel Dane is aiming to become the seventh two-year-old in history to win the Triple Crown, with Pierro (2012) the latest to complete the famous treble, while Burst (1992) is the last filly to achieve this.

She's Extreme (barrier six) was runner-up to Fireburn in the Sires' Produce following a luckless Golden Slipper attempt.

The Anthony Cummings-trained filly also finished second to the Champagne Stakes favourite in the Sweet Embrace Stakes on February 26 prior to recording a black-type win via the Magic Night Stakes on March 12.

Sires' Produce third placegetter Let'srollthedice (barrier four) and Fernhill Stakes winner Williamsburg (barrier three) are in the final field, as is the Maher & Eustace-trained Counttheheadlights (barrier five), who gets the services of John Allen for this Group One attempt.

Maiden runner Wealthy Investor (barrier one) has also accepted for Eagle Farm on Saturday.

Champagne Stakes Winners

The Group One Champagne Stakes dates back to 1861 and had many changing conditions in its early years.

It was run as a six furlong sprint from 1883 up until 1971 but with the introduction of the richer and more prestigious Golden Slipper in the 1950's, the Champagne Stakes changed to a 1600 metre event to follow both the Slipper and then Sires Produce with a natural progression in trip via the 'Triple Crown' series.

Early famous winners of the Champagne Stakes include Ajax, Todman and Vain whilst Samantha Miss and Pierro are a few of the more modern champions to win this two-year-old feature.
