Weatherbys Champion Bumper Betting Tips & Odds 2018
17.30 The Weatherbys Champion Bumper (A Standard Open NH Flat Race)
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, without the hindrance of hurdles or fences.

Of course, all of these horses will go on to do what they were bred for – jump. But the Champion Bumper is the premier race of its kind, won by the likes of Cue Card and Florida Pearl in the past and it continues to produce excellent prospects for the future.
Weatherbys Champion Bumper Feature Betting Tip
Trainer Anthony Honeyball’s ACEY MILAN looks a prime contender for the closing race on the Cheltenham racecard on Ladies Day Wednesday.
The four-year-old has won three of his National Hunt flat races to date, the latest in Newbury’s Listed Bumper. That came on the back of his win at the same level at Cheltenham. He looks like he should run yet another big race.
Willie Mullins’ Tornado Flyer has Hurricane Fly blood in his pedigree and will be a popular choice amongst the Irish punters in the “Getting Out Stakes”.
Punchestown scorer Hollowgraphic is the 7/1 Cheltenham betting market leader for this open race, which is full of relatively unknown quantities.
Noel Meade’s Brace Yourself is also of interest on the back of his debut success at Down Royal on Boxing Day. Noel Meade’s stable has enjoyed a bit of a resurgence in the past year and anything he sends to Cheltenham has to be respected.
Of the UK horses, Anthony Honeyball’s Acey Milan could be progressive and already showed loads of ability when winning at Cheltenham on New Year’s Day.
