Mares' Novices’ Hurdle Tips

Alex Stearn thinks JP McManus can rack up another Festival success.

Thu 16:15 - Mares Novices Hurdle

What is the Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle?

The Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle is a Grade 2 hurdle race over two miles and 179 yards, which is exclusively for female novice hurdles aged four and up, and traditionally takes place on the third day of the Cheltenham Festival, St Patrick’s Day, which is held on a Thursday in March. The race is the most recent addition to the Cheltenham Festival, having been introduced in 2016 to take the total number of races at the festival to 28.      

The history of the Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle

As mentioned above, the Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle was introduced to the festival in 2016, meaning that the race is still very much in its infancy. Willie Mullins has dominated the race so far, winning all four renewals to date, with Ruby Walsh taking the ride on Limini in 2016 and Let’s Dance in 2017. Laurina has since struck in 2018 for Mullins and Paul Townend, while Noel Fehily was on board Eglantine Du Seuil in 2019. The race is building up something of a reputation as a coupon-enhancer, considering that the favourite has obliged in three of the four renewals to date - though the Nicky Henderson-trained Epatante let down favourite backers in the most recent renewal, only finishing ninth despite being sent off as a 15/8 favourite. 

What happened in the 2021 Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle?

Henry de Bromhead's Telmesomethinggirl produced a fine display under Rachael Blackmore to claim victory in the Mares' Novices' Hurdle, as she was over five lengths clear of the second placed Magic Daze with Mighty Blue finishing third.

Who is the most iconic winner of the Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle?

We only have four winners of the race to choose from in this regard, though Limini and Laurina have both proven to be talented mares later in their careers. Both have since taken on the boys in races, and Laurina has arguably been more successful of the two, building on a succession of wins against her own sex to finish fourth in the 2019 Champion Hurdle - when sent off a well supported 5/2 second favourite. Laurina will be a seven-year-old at the 2020 Cheltenham Festival, and it will be interesting to see where Willie Mullins decides to campaign her.  

Are there any trials for the Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle?

With the Dawn Run still being a relatively new race, the winner of the race can come from many different avenues, meaning it is worth keeping an eye on mares’ novice contests in both Britain and Ireland for any eye-catchers. Rather interestingly, both Limini and Laurina won the Solerina Mares’ Novice Hurdle at Fairyhouse on their way to winning the Dawn Run, while Let’s Dance and Eglantine Du Seuil both contested graded races in Ireland prior to running at the Festival.

Who is the most successful jockey in the Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle?

The most successful jockey in the Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle is Ruby Walsh, with two winners, both of whom were trained by Willie Mullins. Ruby Walsh’s wins in the Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle came courtesy of Limini (2016) and Let’s Dance (2017). 

Who is the most successful trainer in the Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle?

Willie Mullins has dominated the Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle, and has won each of the four renewals of the race so far, courtesy of Limini (2016), Let’s Dance (2017), Laurina (2018) and Eglantine Du Seuil (2019).
