One of my favourite races at the festival. Unfortunately, one of the most difficult for ante post backers but that's what adds to the enjoyment. Few eye catching performances and hype so far but no one knows for certain if the horse will be sent over hurdles or campaigned towards the race.

Of course the Mullins trained horses are always going to be prominent in the betting for this race, however the home team lead the current ante post market with the David Pipe trained Moon Racer.

Any early discussion or eye catching performances would be appreciated. I'm surprised there hasn't been a thread posted about this earlier.

Livelovelaugh won the Bumper today .... he was an impressive winner of his P2P and subsequently bought by Rich Ricci. It's a race Mullins has now won the last 4 times most notably with Black Hercules last season. I would preferred if he quickened up though .... he seemed to get to the line by staying on at the one pace. Probably wants a fair bit further.

The Navan Future Champions Bumper is next weekend and is usually informative. I think a few horses have won it en route to Cheltenham - e.g. Dunguib. Mullins has already won Bumpers this season with Bordini, Bellshill & Valerian Bridge so he might run one of them.

Horse called Mahler Lad with Donald McCain, this beat Bordini and Bellshill in there P2P quite easily and is one of Mark Horwards's one to follow. But can't find anything about him or any race entires. One for the note book.

Missed yesterday's Morning Line for the first time in months, typical. Have added all of the above into my tracker. I've seen Bordini, Bellshill, Valerian Bridge and Lyrical Theatre run so far this season. Hopefully the market will be a lot clearer this time next month.

I had a bit of 25s on livelovelaugh but wasn't overly impressed either !

Valerian Bridge and Moon Racer are the best we've seen so far. Mullins will no doubt unleash a really good one over Christmas

Lettheriverrundry of B Powells is highly thought of, Won nicely at Towcester last month, No fancy entries yet but is worth a look if you haven't seen his run.
Lift The Latch I'm waiting to see, JP owned winner of his point with the front 2 clear of the rest, Second has won his bumper under rules for P Nicholls even with STD dropping his whip at the start.

And of course Mahler Lad.

That wasn't a bad run at all yesterday from Bordini, might even be more improvement to come on better ground!

Mahler Lad beat 2 of them in his sole p2p yet is 33/1, Just saying.

Mahler Lad is with Donald McCain, hasn't been seen yet, and the PTP was over 3m. Bordini (who also travelled best in that PTP and made a mistake at the last which probably cost him the race) has proven himself over 2m on the track quite easily beating well regarded types from other yards.

14/1 is a big price about the self-confessed Mullins best bumper horse who is confirmed to be having one more run then going to the Champion Bumper.

He's hard work at times but adds a bit of colour next to you Budd keeping your powder dry in every bloody race until nearer the time Wink

Well, I do have a few bets placed in races where I have a good idea of runners, and a few on horses that are at nice big prices as I always do. Bumper and the Triumph are 2 races I tend to leave alone till a lot nearer the time.

We all have our ways, its not mine to come on here saying a horse will win a race in 4 months time.

I've never backed the winner of this race, so Mahler Lad would have an excellent chance..

All true Joist just feel both have given the form of the p2p a solid look, If ML comes out and wins well people will be quick to jump on the bandwagon that he has already beaten the self-confessed best Mullins bumper hope and the 33's will be long gone, Is worth a speculative punt at the price if you're that way inclined.

LaughLaugh I hate this race and am getting a final pint in out in the Garden bar when it's on. I've never won it so I ain't giving ya winners here. Laugh


But if you'd back Tell Us More 8/1, Peace & Co 6/1 & Zarkandar e/w 16/1 I'd be very confident you'd make some cash.

Very fair points Gutfeeling. I'm unsure how well 3m PTP form can translate to 2m bumper form, but he'll definitely be a value punt at 33s if he wins his first bumper.

One of my favourite races at the festival

I couldn't have a more different opinion.  Along with the Cross Country, I'd rather be in the bar!

Bumper is definitely one of my favs as well. I love the hype that surrounds half the field depending on what you've read and potentially backing or at least witnessing potential Festival stars of the future. Definitely one of the most intriguing races of the Festival imo

Lyrical Theatre booked to run over hurdles this weekend so that rules him out. I happen to enjoy this race because it gives a good insight to the next season.

I've got nothing against Bumpers mate. I actually prefer the Punchestown one because at least then we know the pecking order because of Cheltenham.  Its just going into Cheltenham with 10+ horses having 1111 next to their name makes it impossible.

Ive only ever won it once with Dunguib and I'd say that was more of a lucky pick than any skill.

Nice win from Vigil on his return from an absence, getting the better of Bellshill who visibly looked better today than his debut, wasn't much between them in the end. Visually, in my opinion, Bordini looks the better horse from Team Mullins. Long way to go though ...

While Willie Mullins has run some useful potential bumper contenders  Potters Point  yet to run has always been considered the most the likely horse  from the stable to win the Bumper at Cheltenham 2015.  Add him to your Tracker

Up for Review won very well at Leopardstown and has a big reputation from the pointing field. Owned by Wylies you'd have to be pretty confident of him at least making the field as they like to target their horses at the Bumper in recent years.
At 14/1 he looks a fair bet at this stage, the same price I've taken on Bordini.

Wishfull Dreaming did it well enough yesterday considering he clipped heels then struggled to find a gap at the furlong marker, Looked to me like he'd relish a extra 4f and would get the 4yo weight allowance, 33/1 with Betvictor looks fair.

Au Quart De Tour is another Mullins bumper horse yet to race with a big reputation, has had a few entries recently so should hopefully race soon.

Bellshill will hack up on better ground, that run behind Vigil was excellent, going down by a length effectively giving him 4lbs too on ground that wouldn't suit. The way the race was run wouldn't of suited either he'd be much better being tucked in going a good clip to make use of his stamina. He'll gallop all the way up the hill at Cheltenham I really really like this horse for the bumper and think he has a lot more to come especially on the better ground. You look at him physically and he still has a lot of filling out to do compared to Bordini especially. Lets not forget that Vigil was 5/1 2nd fav for last years Champion Bumper so to be a length behind him giving him weight looks a good run to me. The 3rd 4th & 5th in that Leopardstown bumper have previously won bumpers too so the form is rock solid. Get all you can on him.

I just watched backed Supasundae obliterating a strong Bumper field with plenty of winners in it at Ascot. He looked very impressive quickening up off a slow pace. He's well related too with the grand-dam also being the dam of several G1 winners for John Gosden including Nathaniel. He has to be high enough up the pecking order for the Champion Bumper. Is Cheltenham the plan for this horse?
