Wetherbys Champion Bumper 4 Or 5 Places Each Way

A guide to the bookmakers offering additional each way places at sport's biggest events.

Champion Bumper Additional Each Way Places

The Weatherbys Champion Bumper always features a large field on Ladies Day, Wednesday 14th September 2019 at the Cheltenham Festival. Traditionally the last race of the day, the Champion Bumper sees the very best National Hunt horses from both sides of the Irish Sea fighting out for supremacy. Naturally as the champion flat-race of the season it's a Grade 1 run over 2 miles and 1 furlong on the Old Course. For the 2019 Cheltenham Festival any field approaching the maximum 24 runners will see 5 places each way offered by online bookmakers, meaning an additional place over and above the standard 4 places each way. Of course, offering 5 places each way in the Weatherbys Champion Bumper is an excellent way to offer maximum profit opportunity for punters and is a promotion which will undoubtedly drive 2019 Cheltenham Festival new customer registrations for savvy bookmakers.

2019 Champion Bumper 4 Places Each Way

The Weatherbys Champion Bumper is always one of the more interesting races at the Cheltenham Festival. The championship National Hunt flat race or 'bumper' is always the final race on the Cheltenham Festival Wednesday, but we see masses of quality winners who prove their basic speed. Of the past 8 winners 4 have been trained in the United Kingdom with 4 in Ireland. The most famous winner in-recent times has to be Cue Card. Colin Tizzard's star performer won with son Joe Tizzard on-board before going on to have a glittering career which includes winning the Ryanair Chase in 2013 and the King George VI Chase at Kempton in 2015. Fayonagh won in 2017 after an exceptional finish, with the 'Codd Father,' Jamie Codd the winning jockey.

With anything up to 23 runners across recent staging's, online bookmakers payout the standard 3 places each way at 1/4 odds or more commonly 1/5 odds for this championship National Hunt flat race. However with the Weatherbys Champion Bumper one of the big opportunities at the Cheltenham Festival for each-way betting, a growing number of bookmakers over recent seasons have promoted an additional place, with 4 or even 5 places possible for the 2019 running. Remember online bookmakers have a new customer war-chest for the Cheltenham Festival, so offering additional each way places attracts new customers who spot the value to be had. Naturally 5 places covers circa 25% of the field - a situation which can only drive the chances of profit.

At the time of writing, no bookmakers have extended beyond the standard 3 places each way terms. As soon as this changes we'll confirm details here.
