Labaik won last year's Sky Bet Supreme Novices' Hurdle


Charbel could be the class act on show on the jumpers' bumper card at Southwell.

Kim Bailey's runner looked set to make a race of it with Altior in the Arkle at last year's Festival only to crash out two fences from home.

Three subsequent outings have failed to yield compensation, but his most recent effort when fourth in the Tingle Creek was hardly a bad run, although it does look as though he is a touch short of Grade One calibre.

That said, there are plenty of opportunities for Charbel and this two-mile outing in the Betdaq #ChangingForTheBettor 'Jumpers' Bumper' NH Flat Race should keep him ticking over nicely.

Donald McCain sends a clutch of runners to the Nottinghamshire venue and his Fin And Game looks the pick in the Free Trading Tools On Betdaq "Jumpers' Bumper".

He was out of luck in two bumper starts on the turf, but has won twice over hurdles this term and is a decent prospect.

Volcanic can also strike for McCain in the Betdaq Exchange Virtuals "Jumpers' Bumper".

The nine-year-old spent well over a year on the sidelines but has shaped with promise in two outings since his return, claiming third at both Kempton in November and Musselburgh in January.

He was a three-times bumper winner earlier in his career and that experience should stand him in good stead here.
