MARES HURDLE BETTING PREVIEWThe 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.
Who will win the Mares' Hurdle 2021? We'll take a closer look at this year's Close Brothers Mares' Hurdle and try to determine which horse is likely to prevail in this year's renewal.
CONCERTISTA has gone up another level since last season when winning the Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle in impressive fashion last year. She has returned as good as ever with two wins in Ireland (Leopardstown and Fairyhouse) this winter before Christmas. She is the red hot favorite for a race in which there seems to be a real lack of serious contenders.
ROKSANA, who took the spoils for Dan Skelton in 2019, was only fourth last season. She proved at least as good as ever on her return to action at Wetherby in October, relishing the return to three miles as she ran out an easy winner, and she ran almost as well to finish third to Paisley Park and Thyme Hill in the Long Walk Hurdle at Ascot in December.
DAME DE COMPAGNIE, the 2020 Coral Cup winner, reverts back to hurdling after two chase starts this season. She opened their account with a win at Ayr before being badly hampered at Sandown in the Grade 1 Scilly Isles Novices’ Chase.
BLACK TEARS followed Dame De Compagnie home in the Coral Cup 12 months ago, and remains on a workable handicap mark

Other Contenders? Willie Mullins' seven-year-old MINELLA MELODY has beaten top horses in the past, including the Grade One-winning Colreevey. She was poor in the Mare’s Novice’s Hurdle at the last festival, she has come on this season with three consecutive second-place finishes, both behind Concertista, so she could be a strong candidate for a place at big odds.
MY SISTER SARAH won a Listed race in good style at Limerick in October, and she could also be one each-way punters latch onto.
