Some of the other threads on here put up by jimnast have reminded me of something from over 20 years ago. I was at Newton Abbot when Ulundi won the bumper. This horse went on to win the Wolferton handicap at Royal Ascot on the flat and ran in two grade 1 races in the US.  Has any horse gone on from a bumper to reach a better flat rating ?

Les Arcs started off at 1m2f before having a go over hurdles to becoming a dual G1 winner at sprinting,

Mellottie went from bumpers to group status on the flat ! !

Mellottie the one that comes to mind for me as well, ran in Halling's Cambridgeshire.

Wicklow Brave was well stuffed on his bumper debut. Became a Group 1 winner on the flat, earning a rating of 115 or 116. Actually, the winner of that debut bumper was Very Wood, who went on to win the Albert Bartlett in 2014.

I think the flat 2 miler VC won was a normal flat race but a good shout as he went on from winning hurdle races to Cesarwich and Melbourne Cup winner !

didn't Jim Bolger have one that went on to win a couple of Irish St Legers, name escapes me Crazy

You are right - I checked and it was a flat race. Not sure about the Bolger horse.
