Mares Novice Hurdle 2023 Betting Odds, Runners & Preview


In 2015 the Cheltenham Racecourse Executive decided that the Cheltenham Festival would benefit from a new novice hurdle race restricted to just mares and fillies and introduced the Dawn Run Mares Novices Hurdle.

This two-mile one-furlong race was first run in 2016, and so far, it has been dominated by Irish runners, winning all but one renewal.
