Champion Bumper Betting Tips

Panic Attack bolted up on her only start for Willie Mullins at Market Rasen this season. A surprise move to David Pipe’s yard followed and she’s clearly in with an good chance – especially when you consider she’s gaining over a stone on her older, male rivals.

Even with that pull in the weights, I can’t see Panic Attack being strong enough to deny APPRECIATE IT, who looked a class above his rivals when winning a Grade Two at the Dublin Racing Festival. Willie Mullins’ six-year-old was dropping back in trip that day, having won over 20-furlongs second-time out, but showed a good turn of foot in putting a good-quality field to the sword.

Patrick Mullins has ridden the winner of the Champion Bumper twice, and he will surely renew his partnership with this exciting young horse. It’s not the most novel of selections, but I’m simply not prepared to side against Appreciate It.
