The Winter Bumper is a Grade 2 National Hunt flat race in Great Britain which is open to horses aged four to six years. It is run at Newbury over a distance of about 2 miles and 110 yards (3,319 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in February.
The first version of the race was established in 1996, and it was given Grade 2 status in 2002. The present title was introduced ahead of the planned running in 2009, but this race was cancelled because of snow. Prior to this it was known by various titles, usually the name of a sponsor appended with "Standard Open National Hunt Flat Race".
The event serves as a trial for the Champion Bumper in March, although no horse has ever achieved victory in both races. However, the winner of the latter event in 1999, Monsignor, had earlier finished fourth in this race.
