The Grade 2 steeplechase, run over 2m4f on the New Course at Prestbury Park, replaces the Centenary Novices’ Handicap Chase (Close Brothers Novices’ Handicap Chase) on the programme and represents our increased sponsorship commitment – with our Cheltenham portfolio also including the Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle and the Paddy Power Plate Handicap Chase.
The inaugural Mrs Paddy Power Mares’ Chase, registered as the Liberthine Mares’ Chase, will see a highly competitive field of five-year-olds face 17 fences as they battle it out for a £90,000 prize pot.
A number of eye-catching contenders are entered into the race this year, and there is no risk of losing out if your pick withdraws thanks to our non-runner money back offer.
Mrs Paddy Power Mares’ Chase antepost tips
Timeform: “ELIMAY had produced a very smart performance when chasing home leading Ryanair Chase contender Allaho at Thurles on her previous outing, and she didn’t need to improve on that form to win the listed Opera Hat Chase back in mares’ company at Naas.
“That was her third win from four starts over fences and her Timeform rating of 159 identifies her as the one to beat at the Cheltenham Festival, so she deservedly heads the market.”
