Excellence of Sacrificing an Expensive Animal

The prices of animals are skyrocketing.  The expenses are increasing each year.  What we have to see is whether it is enough to sacrifice a cheap animal or should we sacrifice an expensive animal?   It is necessary that the animal should be plump, healthy and perfect in every way.  If there is a difference of price in animals of this kind, then it is correct to sacrifice a cheap animal as well.  However, there is greater reward on sacrificing an expensive animal.  There is a Hadith in Kanz Ul Ummal about this:

The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:  Verily, the best sacrifice in the sight of Allah Most High is the one which is the most expensive and the most excellent.

(Kanz Ul Ummal, Hadith No. 12693)
