The Mares Hurdle is one of the newest races at the Cheltenham Festival, run over two and a half miles and, as the name would suggest, for mares only. Willie Mullins and Quevega won six on the bounce and the Irish maestro won it last year with the 7yo Benie Des Dieux. This article contains our Mares Hurdle race preview with free predictions, tips, betting trends, best odds, free bets and no deposit bonuses on the 2019 Cheltenham Festival.

MARES HURDLE BETTING PREVIEW 

The Mares Hurdle was first run at the Cheltenham Festival in 2008. We have seen some great winners over the past few seasons and the race quality is seemingly getting better every year. It's a Grade 1 National Hunt hurdle, run over two miles and four furlongs, for fillies and mares aged four and upwards. Prize money has been boosted to £120,000 this year. The history of this race all revolves around the wonderful mare Quevega, who won the race six times from 2009 to 2014. Willie Mullins’ love affair with the Mares’ Hurdle continued last season when Benie des Dieux proved too strong for Midnight Tour up the hill.

And now we'll take a closer look at this year's Mares' Hurdle 2019 and try to determine which horse is likely to prevail.

Last year’s winner BENIE DES DIEUX is the short-priced favourite, altough he could face tough challenge from Apple's Jade and Laurina. She is a perfect 5/5 since joining the Mullins yard, backing up her success in this with a further Grade 1 success at Punchestown. She’s not been seen since her success in this race last year, which is a slight concern. Anyway, we all remember that Willie Mullins' trained Quevega won this race six times in a row with no prep race.

LIMINI, a former Mares’ Novices’ winner, hasn’t come on as many expected following her own Cheltenham victory. She recently finished third behind Presenting Percy in the Galmoy Hurdle and comes with reasonable hopes after that encouraging victory.

STORMY IRELAND was a good second to the useful Espoir D’Allen at limerick last time and could benefit with the extra distance of this race.

MIA'S STORM is 2/2 back over the smaller obstacles after issues in novice chases last year.

ROKSANA was only beaten eleven lengths by Buveur D’Air when she returned to action in the Contenders Hurdle at Sandown over a trip short of her best. She’s only had six starts over hurdles and won three of them.

ELIMAY came up half-a-length short of Good Thyne Tara on her first start since moving to County Carlow from France and you’d expect Mullins’ five-year-old to come on from that run.

LADY BUTTON'S  has won six of her 16 hurdle starts and also four times over fences. She is unbeaten in four runs this season but possibly lacks the class of some of the Irish mares.

Last year's Mares' Novices' Hurdle runner-up CAP SOLEIL is another very interesting runner. She hasn't run since Cheltenham last year and this could be a concern.

Looking for dark horses?

GOOD THYNE TARA was well-beaten behind both Laurina and Stormy Ireland, but she’s claimed Listed and Grade Three prizes this term and has to be respected.

MOMELLA mounted a serious challenge in the Long Distance Hurdle on her reappearance this season before coming down at the last,.
