The second running of the Trull House Mares’ Novices Hurdle takes place at Cheltenham on Thursday afternoon.
This is a two mile and one furlong race and we will see 16 runners go to post.
It looks as though it is a race that revolves around those at the front of the market and the one leading the way right now is Let’s Dance for Ruby Walsh and Willie Mullins.
She’s around 13/8 right now and could be a decent price. The horse has won her last four races and looked pretty impressive when doing so.
For me, she’d have gone very close in the Neptune on Wednesday afternoon and looks really tough to beat against her own sex here.
Mullins will be desperate for a winner as well and he also has 4/1-second favourite Airlie Beach.
This horse is a winning machine with seven victories from as many starts for Mullins and she bolted up in a Grade One last time out.
There’s no doubting her class and it’ll be interesting to see how the market reacts to this horse.
She’s won over two miles and dive in soft ground in the past, so Paul Townend is likely to make plenty of use of the horse.
Mullins does hold all the aces here and I’d be shocked if he didn’t have a winner in this encounter.
There are plenty of runners though and some decent EW options.
Forge Meadow goes for Jessica Harrington, who is in excellent form at the moment.
The horse is at 10/1 and won really well at Naas last time out. She was second to Augusta Kate in the bumper at Punchestown last season on good ground, so should handle conditions and looks solid.
La Bague Au Roi has been given a winter break by Warren Greatrex and is also a 10/1 for this.
She’s won her last three and looked class in doing so. The trainer is good with this sort of horse.
You can get 14/1 about Asthuria and it is then 20/1 for Toe The Line and Barra. You can get 28/1 and over for the rest of the field.
Joe’s tip(s) for this race: [mepr-show if=”rule: 75342″] LETS DANCE is the one to be with here. If you fancied an EW bet, Toe The Line could go well at 20/1. She’ll enjoy conditions.
