Champion Bumper odds: Jalon D'oudairies leads the way

A breeding ground for future stars of National Hunt racing, the Grade 1 Champion Bumper is the final race on Day Two of the Cheltenham Festival.

It is a race that has been dominated by record-breaking Cheltenham trainer Willie Mullins who has won the race on 12 occasions, including four of the last six renewals.

He has the likes of Jasmin De Vaux and You Oughta Know leading the charge this week in what looks to be a wide-open contest.

Jalon D'oudairies

Gordon Elliott is looking for his third win in the race since 2017 and he has a trio of contenders for this one.

His best chance is perhaps Jalon D'oudairies, who has enjoyed bumper successes at Fairyhouse and Leopardstown in recent times.

Jasmin De Vaux

A thoroughly impressive winner at Naas in January, Jasmin De Vaux arguably has the best chance of making it number 13 for Mullins in this race.

Patrick Mullins' choice looked a class above in Ireland and could well go off as favourite.

The Yellow Clay

Another of the Elliott contingent is highly fancied following his fourth-placed finish in a Grade 2 at Leopardstown at 40/1 last time out.

The five-year-old has enjoyed bumper success at listed level but has only ran once since.

Romeo Coolio

The son of Kayf Tara commanded a fee £420,000 from Aidan O'Ryan last March.

His debut success at Fairyhouse provided an initial return on investment and he could have a big future.


Another horse who enjoyed an impressive debut win is Teeshan after his impressive triumph at Exeter for Paul Nicholls.

His reputation has grown ever since his point-to-point success at Loughanmore by 41 lengths, and the son of Westener is justifiably amongst the favourites for the Champion Bumper.

You Oughta Know

His Grade 2 second at Leopardstown was a strong performance and gave signs of what could be around the corner for the Willie Mullins-trained six-year-old.

Bumper wins at Kilbeggan and Galway last year were also impressive and he should run a strong race this week.
