Mares Novice Hurdle Tips 2023 – Trends, Odds, Preview and Ante-post Tip (Day 3 4.50pm)
The Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle, a.k.a. the Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle, is a Grade Two contest run over 2 miles 1 furlong on the New Course at Cheltenham.
As the name suggests, the race is restricted to mares and fillies which, before the start of the current season, had yet to win a race over hurdles; it was added to the Cheltenham Festival schedule in 2016.
Since its inception, the Daylesford Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle has been dominated by Willie Mullins, who has saddled 19 runners – more than double the number of any other trainer – and won all five renewals so far.
Mares Novices Hurdle Betting Tip
- Luccia to win the Mares Novices Hurdle
The mares races at the Festival are usually won by the Irish and in particular Closutton but Luccia is hoping to make it 2/2 for the British this year after Love Envoi’s success in the Mares Novice last year. Luccia is the standout mare in this field and should take all the beating. Thrown into listed company on hurdles debut (very rare for Nicky to do so) at Newbury, she bolted up to cement her place at the top of the market. A place she has sat all season.
There’s no secret the magnitude this horse is thought of at Seven Barrows and there’s even been talk of the mare taking her chance against the boys in the Supreme (see our Supreme Novices Hurdle 2023 tip). She wouldn’t be out of place in that and it was a shame she missed the G1 Tolworth hurdle at Sandown in January as we could have really seen what she’s capable of.
Impressive last time out again at Exeter, Luccia looks an absolute weapon. There doesn’t seem to be a star novice mare in Ireland this season and although there’s a couple of progressive types to ask Luccia some questions, I don’t think they can lay a glove on her and I fully expect her to defy a 5lb penalty and romp these into submission.
