Rouge in Bumper frameHeadlines
Vieux Lion Rouge

David Pipe is considering a tilt at the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham with the unbeaten Vieux Lion Rouge.

The French-bred four-year-old was a 14-length winner at Ffos Las on his debut and followed up at Newbury last time out.

He is related to Marcel, whom Pipe's father Martin enjoyed great success with in the 2004-05 season, winning nine races including the Tolworth Hurdle.

"Vieux Lion Rouge is a most promising young horse and he extended his record to two wins from two starts with a courageous performance in the bumper at Newbury," Pipe wrote in his blog on www.davidpipe.com.

"Bought from the Arqana sales in July for what is beginning to look like a very reasonable ?42,000, I will certainly be considering a crack at the Cheltenham Festival bumper with him.

"He comes from an excellent family - his dam was a half-sister to a multiple winner we had at the yard, Marcel.

"Indeed, we have a very nice crop of youngsters coming through, including several bumper winners, and he would be right up there with the best of them."
