When is the Mares Novices Hurdle 2020?

Cheltenham Thursday 12th March 4.50pm

Festival Mares Novices Hurdle (Grade 2) (4yo+)

Distance: 2 miles 1 Furlongs

Weights: 10st 8lbs (4yo), 11st 2lbs (5yo+)

Penalties: 5 lb for winners of Class 1 wfa hurdle, 3 lb for winners of Class 2 wfa, 3 lb for winners of Class 1 handicap hurdle

The penultimate race on day three is registered as the Dawn Run Mares Novice Hurdle but now that Tattersalls is the sponsor the official title is “National Hunt Breeders Supported By Tattersalls Mares Novices Hurdle”, this was inaugurated in 2016 and it is a novice hurdle open to fillies and mares aged four years old or over.

It is run on the new course over a distance of about two miles and one furlong with eight hurdles to be jumped, winners of this will likely compete in the OLBG Mares Hurdle in future years.

What was Keith’s Mares Novices Hurdle Tip for 2019?

For the 2019 Mares Novices Hurdle, Free Racing Tips Tipster Keith advised:

Anti-post favourite is the unbeaten HONEYSUCKLE trained by Henry De Bromhead but the one for me is MY SISTER SARAH who has won 3 from 4 and is taken to continue the tremendous record of Willie Mullins in the race.

My selection MY SISTER SARAH 14/1 each way.

Result: MY SISTER SARAH unplaced (13/22) she was never travelling properly in midfield and dropped to the back of the field but picked up a few places towards the finish under pressure.
