5.15 Champion Bumper

When it comes to the Weatherbys Champion Bumper, Willie Mullins is always the man the bookmakers fear as he will be chasing a ninth win in this race at the 2014 Cheltenham Festival following recent strikes with Champagne Fever and Briar Hill.

Wither or Which (1996), Florida Pearl (1997), Alexander Banquet (1998), Joe Cullen (2000), Missed That (2005) and Cousin Vinny (2008) were other successful entries sent across the Irish sea by that handler.

Ante-post favourites Black Hercules and Shaneshill both represent the County Carlow camp, while the Flat-bred Modus has also built up a big reputation in two wins for Newport trainer Robert Stephens.

The Champion Bumper, sponsored by Weatherbys since 1997, is the most prestigious flat race of the National Hunt calendar and often attracts future stars of the jumping game, with the likes of Florida Pearl, Dunguib and Cue Card coming out on top.
