Grade Two Mares' Chase

Hot favourite Dinoblue is among 11 mares who are vying for glory in the 2m 4f Mares' Chase on the final day at Cheltenham on Friday. Will Willie Mullins' mare record victory or will a different horse triumph?

Kestrel Valley

Nigel Twiston-Davies saddles the current market outsider for the Mares' Chase on day four of the Cheltenham festival in the form of Kestrel Valley. The ten-year-old is a smart chaser in decent form but this is a big test.

Pink Legend

Venetia Williams teams up with regular jockey Charlie Deutsch aboard ten-year-old Pink Legend in the Mares' Chase at Cheltenham. She's a smart chaser on her day but comes here on the back of two disappointing efforts at Huntingdon and Exeter.

Riviere D'etel

Seven-year-old Riviere D'etel is sent to the G2 Mares' Chase over 2m 4f at Cheltenham on Friday by Irish trainer Gordon Elliott on the back of finishing second in the G2 Red Mills Chase at Gowran Park last month.

Allegorie De Vassy

Willie Mullins saddles three in the Mares' Chase on Friday in the form of Instit, Dinoblue and Allegorie De Vassy. The latter arrives here as a 4/1 shot after finishing second to Impervious in this race last term.

Brides Hill

Gavin Cromwell saddles two in the G2 Mares' Chase at Cheltenham on the final day of the festival in the form of Limerick Lace and Brides Hill. The latter is a seven-year-old who arrives at this contest in terrific form, having won her last three races.

Limerick Lace

The second of the Gavin Cromwell runners in the Mares' Chase is Limerick Lace, who has already won twice this season at Clonmel and Doncaster in the hands of Mark Walsh at Clonmel and Jonjo O'Neill Jr. at Doncaster.

Marsh Wren

Stuart Edmunds sends his eight-year-old Marsh Wren to the G2 Mares Chase on the back of some strong recent form, winning three of her four starts over fences at Warwick, Uttoxeter and Thurles.

Harmonya Maker

Gordon Elliott sends seven-year-old Harmonya Maker to the Mares' Chase at the Cheltenham festival on Friday after she finished third in the Listed Colreevy Mares Novice Chase at Thurles last month (Marsh Wren in first).


The hot favourite for the G2 Mares' Chase at Cheltenham on Friday is Dinoblue, who is trained by Willie Mullins and has recorded some impressive form over fences over the last year and a bit or so.

Carole's Pass

Amy Murphy saddles one in the G2 Mares' Chase at Cheltenham on Friday in the form of her mare Carole's Pass. Jonjo O'Neill Jr. has been booked to ride the six-year-old, who arrives here on the back of a listed win at Exeter last month.


The last runner of the Mares' Chase and the last of three for genius trainer Willie Mullins is Instit, the six-year-old who arrives at the festival on the back of finishing fourth of five in a listed chase at Naas last month, won by stablemate Allegorie De Vassy.
