About the Champion Bumper

The Champion Bumper is the only Grade 1 flat race in UK National Hunt racing. The race is run over a distance of 2 miles and half a furlong on the Cheltenham Old Course and is the last race on the card for the second day of the Festival. Entry to the race is restricted to horses aged 4- to 6-years-old.

Despite being a flat race, the Champion Bumper has produced several champions that have gone on to achieve success in jumps races. These include the likes of champion steeplechasers Florida Pearl and Cue Card, while Dunguib and Champagne Fever went on to win major hurdles races.

Betting on the Champion Bumper

The Champion Bumper is one of the easier races to untangle when it comes to telling which horses are genuine candidates. Recent winners have all shown strong form ahead of the Champion Bumper, and a win or second place last time out is a virtual prerequisite for a win.

The markets will usually pick out the top contenders quite accurately, and the top 3-4 in the betting will usually meet the above requirements and wins by antepost favourites are common. This leaves you to decide between an all-or-nothing punt on the favourite, or putting your money behind a higher priced horse that also offers value on the places.
