In July 2015 it was announced that the Cheltenham Festival would be benefiting from a new novice hurdle race restricted to just mares and fillies.
This Grade 2 race is run over 2m1f on the new course and it is expected that Willie Mullins, who has dominated the OLBG Mares' Hurdle, will be the trainer to follow, especially after winning the inaugural event with Limini and then following up with Let's Dance in 2017.
