Cheltenham OLGB Mares Hurdle – 2019
FRT Tipster Keith advised:
“2017 winner APPLES JADE has been installed as anti-post favourite, but Willie Mullins has a couple of high-class contenders in the shape of last year’s winner BENIE DES DIEUX and LAURINA but the latter is more likely to be aimed at the Champion Hurdle which may well be the target of APPLES JADE too.
My selection for the race is BENIE DES DIEUX 3/1 who can confirm last seasons form with APPLES JADE.”
Result: BENIE DES DIEUX Fell
