OLBG Mares Hurdle Preview

Without any doubt, the best race of the whole Cheltenham Festival! The OLBG sponsored Mares Hurdle has grown in strength ever since OLBG took up the sponsorship and developed the supporting OLBG Mares Road to Cheltenham.

Now a Grade 1 contest and with the Mares Novice race having been added to the festival this year, Mares racing in the UK and the OLBG Mares Road to Cheltenham is looking stronger than ever.

OLBG Mares Only Hurdle Trainer Trends

The amazing Willie Mullins has now won this race on eight consecutive occasions! The wonder mare Quevega won six runnings of the OLBG Mares Hurdle and Mullins has followed up with wins for Glens Melody and Vroum Vroum Mag. What price nine consecutive wins?

Despite her plethora of wins Quevega was never shorter than 4/7 to win our race and punters who have been backing all of the Mullins runners here are showing a nice profit. Full details of Willie Mullins' amazing record in the OLBG Mares Hurdle can be found below:

OLBG Mares Hurdle Tips from The OLBG Forum

OLBG member The Shark feels that LIFEBOAT MONA offers some each-way value in our race:

Lifeboat Mona has won all her completed hurdle races in fine style and looks open to plenty of further improvement on decent ground against more exposed horses. She saw off Midnight Jazz far more comfortably than Vroum Vroum Mag did and has been kept nice and fresh for this race with just the two runs this season. With short odds at the head of the market and confusion at this stage over exactly which mares will run, Lifeboat Mona looks a great each way bet at around 12/1.
