MARES NOVICES HURDLE BETTING PREVIEWIt's a Grade 2 National Hunt hurdle race open to mares and fillies, run over two miles and one furlong, for horses aged four years and upwards. This race was created to attract the top novice mares in the United Kingdom, and presents a showcase of future mare talent that will be aimed at either the Mares Hurdle or the Champion Hurdle.
Hence, it is a great starting point for mares who are just short of top class, and unable to take on the boys in one of the open novice races.
Who will win the Mares Novices Hurdle 2021?We'll take a closer look at this year's Daylesford Mares' Novices' Hurdle and try to determine which horse is likely to prevail in this year's renewal.
ROYAL KAHALA has really impressed in winning both starts over hurdles at Fairyhouse this winter beating Hook Up by five lengths, barely off the bridle under a confident ride in January.
HOOK UP caught the eye when a cracking fourth in the Chanelle Pharma last time out behind the high class Appreciate It at Leopardstown in February.
Jonathan Sweeney-trained ROSEYS HOLLOW jumped into the reckoning with a Grade 3 victory at Fairyhouse in February, pushing Gauloise into third. She has been restricted to four starts, spread over three seasons and remains open to significant improvement.
SKY ACE won a couple of good races in Ireland earlier in the season, and John Hanlon's mare will arrive at Cheltenham fresh.
Alan King’s mare THE GLANCING QUEEN is clearly Britain’s best challenger. She has twice run in the Champion Bumper here at the Cheltenham Festival, and her performances this season have been solid having proved herself at this trip with victory at Bangor in January.
Willie Mullins' GLENS OF ANTRIM was 4th behind Blue Lord on her first racecourse appearance, before running Albert Bartlett favourite, Stattler close at Leopardstown. The odds-on favourite then looked on-course to claim her first win at Naas, but was beaten by Mr Incredible on the line.
