Champion Bumper 2022 Result

17:30 Wednesday 16 March 2022

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

Distance: 2m 87y (Old)
Prize: £45,560 Age: 4yo to 6yo Race Type: Bumper Going: Heavy

Perhaps the most testing conditions ever for the Champion Bumper, though the time was a fraction faster than that recorded by Ferny Hollow in 2020, the start of the race delayed while the course was reconfigured, several of the hurdles positions having to be bypassed due to the incessant rain, that 5 of the longshots were pulled up testament to the testing nature of the race, though the principals saw things out well, the form shown by the winner well up to standard for the race, his performance as good as any since probably Briar Hill in 2013, another of now 12 winners in the contest for Willie Mullins, who fielded 7 runners, 6 of them unbeaten, 3 making the frame, only American Mike breaking the stable stranglehold, British yards mustering just 8 runners, none of them sent off at shorter than 33/1, though the 4 that finished acquitted themselves with credit, the field overall one of the most impressive on looks in recent years.
