Tony Martin’s Golantilla is priced at 10/1 with Corals for a rare second attempt at the Champion Bumper

Last year’s Champion Bumper third is due to run at Naas this afternoon before a possible second attempt at the Champion Bumper. There is no doubt that Golantilla will face stiff opposition at the Festival, but it is certainly a move worth noting. Tony Martin is a master planner and has to be respected when it comes to such things.

Both Black Hercules who has a big reputation and Modus (the dual bumper winner) appear still to be good value. Black Hercules is 8/1 with Corals and Modus is 12/1 with Paddy Power.
