Champion Bumper (A Standard Open NH Flat Race) Betting Odds


The Weatherbys Champion Bumper (A Standard Open NH Flat Race)  – 17:30PM

Often a race farmed by Irish trained runners, the Weatherbys Champion Bumper is a Grade 1 National Hunt Flat Race over two miles, attracting the very best horses in this non-jumping division of the jumps game.

It is a hugely important race for young, slow developing types and provides the experience of a top quality contest at the Cheltenham Festival, along with producing future Champions and top quality handicappers.  As always, form and clues are thin on the ground, with many of the horses involved only having one or two runs before taking their chances here.

It can be a very tricky race to predict as a punter, but there are always plenty of big odds floating around about some talented and unexposed young horses and that’s what makes this race so intriguing, not to mention the typical three or four contenders hailing from small but shrewd stables.

It often pays to see how this Cheltenham betting market forms and wait until the right time or for the “NRNB” (Non-Runner, No Bet) betting markets are available before placing your bets in the race known simply as “The Bumper”.

At odds of 7/1, Hollowgraphic is just about the market leader at the time of writing after his good Punchestown win, but Didtheyleaveuoutto has been the early talk of the town.

Trainer Noel Meade’s Brace Yourself is also another horse of interest and certainly one to keep an eye in the Champion Bumper betting markets.
