Champion Bumper 2021 Result

16:50 Wednesday 17 March 2021

WEATHERBYS CHAMPION BUMPER (STANDARD OPEN NATIONAL HUNT FLAT) (Grade 1) (1)

Distance: 2m 87y (Old)
Prize: £31,651 Age: 4yo to 6yo Race Type: Bumper Going: Gd/Sft

For the second time in 3 runnings, a field of just 14 for the Champion Bumper, though this is more likely to be a blip than a trend, smaller fields in the Grade 1 novices having been a feature of the week, with the lack of social/speculative runners - the Spa on Friday the exception; the first 2 might well have been further along in their career but for the shutdown soon after last season's Festival, the runner-up making his debut later in March, the winner bought for £400,000 at the sale here the previous December, the price tag the obvious answer to anyone wondering why points rather than bumpers have become the focus of those looking to sell on young horses; the form of the first 2 is well up to the recent standards for the race, even if the contest overall lacked the depth usually associated with it; that said, physically this was a good field and the race seems sure to throw up plenty of winners over jumps next season; the winner added to Willie Mullins' remarkable record in the race, though in different circumstances he would have been the fourth winner of the week at the halfway point for Gordon Elliott; the early pace wasn't so good as it often is and the winner had the run of things under a well-judged ride, Rachael Blackmore completing a first- and last-race Grade 1 double after 3 spills in between.
