David Nicholson Mares' Hurdle Race Betting Odds

The OLBG David Nicholson Mares’ Hurdle Race – 16:10PM

This Cheltenham Festival race was made brilliant by the legendary mare Quevega, who regularly lit up Prestbury Park to win this race five times, which has set the tone for an improved scene for the classy mares out there.

In 2017, the OLBG Mares’ Hurdle was arguably the best race of Champion Day, with the outstanding Apple’s Jade just proving too good for the excellent Limini and Vroum Vroum Mag.

This trio served up a thrilling finish last year and could be set to clash again, but it is the defending Champion Apple’s Jade holding all the aces.

Main Players

Last year’s Mares’ Novice Hurdle winner Let’s Dance fluffed her lines in a recent Cheltenham Trial race, but the step back in trip on good ground should see her remain a big player here, along with stablemate Limini.

Colin’s Sister is improving and could be the best of the UK horses, along with trainer Nicky Henderson’s Verdana Blue, who also has a Champion Hurdle entry.
But at Cheltenham betting odds of 5/6 (1.83) and with all the best form to her name, Apple’s Jade is the clear and present threat and very much the betting market leader for this Mares’ Grade 1 contest over 2m 4f.
